A: The beer is crystal clear light yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that quickly died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface, a collar around the edge, and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of sweet, bready malts are present in the nose along with hints of grassy hops.
T: Like the smell, the taste is dominated by flavors of bready malts and has faint hints of sweetness, but these are nearly completely masked by a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is decent represention of the style, but seemed like it could have used a little more in the way of hops to strike a balance with the malts.

Poured from a bottle into a Sam Adams stein. Very clear, light gold in color, and sports about 2 fingers of rocky white head (not as much as I expected, despite a pretty rough pour). The nose is delightful. It's sweet and malty with notes of fresh bread and bartlett pairs.

Light body and a clean, malty flavor with just a hint of hoppy spiciness. The beer is nice and sweet with low bitterness. The noble hops at mid-palate mix with the malt and infuse an apple-like flavor into the beer. Very pleasant and easy-drinking, but lacks any malt complexity. A beer to be enjoyed with a meal, not much more.

When I grabbed this bottle of Moosbacher I didn't realize I'd tried the Kellerbier... and I wasn't terribly impressed. Let's see how the Helles goes.

A -- Clear gold color with a smooth off-white head that doesn't hold up long.

S -- Hmm. Can't say I've ever smelled diacetyl in a bottled German lager -- not a good sign. Not much more pushing through the butterscotch.

T -- Same diacetyl right up front with some malt graininess and the slightest bit of spicy hops in the finish.

M -- Mouthfeel is soft and smooth with a medium body.

O -- Got this off the shelf of a largely reputable, small-chain liquor store in the Chicago area. Can't tell by the dating code how old this is (have to look into it), but I'm just a little disappointed at how off this beer is.

Appearance, wheat field yellow with at quickly disapearing head and almost zero lacing.

This brew smells like a rising dough that has begun to sour a bit.

The taste is grassy and crisp with a Metallic sticky finish.

The mouth feel I think is right on target for the style and leaves little for wanting.

This is a good beer for the guy wanting to try something different. It's not far from Bud or Coors in style but amazingly better and tastier.

500 ml flip top bottle poured into pint glass.

Munich Helles Lager's are my favorite style of brew, so I'm always looking to try new ones. Had never heard of this stuff, but as a genral rule, I will always buy a German Lager I come across if the price is right and I've never sampled.

A - A bit darker than most lagers, a light golden brown with a bit of haze to hit, suprising for a lager. Thin head, only about a 1/2 an inch, and that was after an aggressive pour. Lot's of carbonation visible and bubbling.

S - A touch of hops, mostly malt and even a touch of grass. A hint of dankness too.

T - Very tasty. A perfect mix of malt and hops, and a general "fermenty" taste. A touche of general fruitiness to it, as well. Not far off from other Munich Helles', not a lot going on, but damn tasty.

F - Could've been because I drank this shortly after a football practice, but this was incredibly refreshing, and gave it a perfect score in that regard. Got my fizz fix, was easy on the throat and stomach, and went down incredibly easy.

O - A damn good lager. Plenty of taste, yet extremely refreshing. A great representation of the style. Based on the small amount of reviews here, doesn't seem to be a lot of this going around. But if you still see this stuff, any quality lager fan should grab this.

look: 4.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Almost three fingers of head on a hazy, medium straw colored body.
The aroma is faint overall; a little grain. Should have a lot more going on here.
The taste is light bitterness with some graininess to it.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Not great, not bad.

Poured from a porcelain top bottle, this bright yellow brew clung briefly to the side of my glass. Refreshing and crisp it is pleasing to the taste and nose. The head as mentioned quickly dissipates but still not bad , better than most. I would gladly drink this again although I would not search it out.
