I drank this straight out of the destillery in Aying at the Brewery, ice-cold, unfiltered. It was quite a sensation to behold our tour guide saw I liked it so much he kept pouring me more helpings. I could not stop drinking it it was that good. It was light yellow with a huge head and an aroma that the smelled pure, clean and and destinctive of hops. the taste was that of a perfect Helles beer, no after taste on the taste of the beer remained. It was very bubbly, yet it was at the same time smooth and went down without any problem. One could drink this beer alone or, with almost any kind of food. This was the best beer I ever tasted. If you are ever in Munich, I recommend a visit to Aying, its only a 25-30 min ride on the S-Bahn and the tour of the brewery is exceptional, and you can drink as much beer as you can for the tour price!!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Half litre bottle, poured into over sized Tripel Karmeliet tulip. A: Golden colour,
clear, initial large rocky head faded quickly without leaving much lacing. S: Tangy
Munich malts and noble hops. T: Honey on toast, hint of sharpnesses, nice balance
without huge depth. M: Light body, crisp, some bite from the carbonation. O: A
beer to drink rather than one to spend hours talking about, trading for or
discussing online. Good for what it is, but as someone who has sampled numerous
"Helles" I don’t think I’ll keep this one in memory.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a straight pint glass.

Pours a light golden colour with quite a nice white head.

Smells quite yeasty and fresh.

Tastes quite malty and yeasty with quite a significant peppery hop taste.

Overall a very good example of the style, tasty and not watery unlike some.
