Munich Helles Lager is a specific style of beer, it looks rather simply, but actually has got good organoleptical characteristics.
We have clear sparkling golden beer with moderate white head. Smell is fresh and floral with distinct honey tones. Of course, grains and citrus.
Taste is well-balanced and classic for the style. Grainy with cardboard notes and delicate bitter finish. Moderate carbonation and medium body. Definitely, a good beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Clear, relatively saturated gold color (i.e., a bit darker than expected).

S & T: no flaws per se, but a rather meek and uninteresting mix of light malt and earthy hops.

M: crisp, with medium+ carbonation; light body.

O: marginally better than mediocre Bavarian Helles.

(review largely confirmed with tasting in August 2013)

Best before date of 11/13

Appearance - Pours a crystal clear, bright golden hue with a white, frothy 2 finger head. Great retention, leaving a thin layer of bubbles across the surface. Lacing is small and spotty with fair stick.

Smell - Strong aroma of honey and touches of lemon. Slight floral notes. Faint grain.

Taste - After such a tantilizing smell, the flavor is mostly underwhelming. Clean grain, backed by notes of honey and a trace of mild lemon. Touches on grassy bitterness before a somewhat watery finish.

Mouthfeel - Light in body with a crisp, lively bite. Again, the finish is on the watery side.

Overall - It starts off promising enough, but trails off quickly in the finish. It's a good Helles, but just not enough for me to consider it great, much less one of the top examples of the style.

Great looking beer. Finger of foamy head on a clear, golden colored body.
The aroma is milled barley with a little floral note. Nice and simple.
The taste is moderately bitter with a dry bitter at the end.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It's a simple and good beer.

Pours a pale golden color. Pleasant smell, not floral, generic lager-y. Somewhat bland taste. Good mouthfeel but lacks substance, on the watery side as it lingers. Not too much head but it remains for a while.

Nothing too exciting, and no distinct flavors stand out but very decent overall.
