4.25/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a clear golden color with a white head that dissipates quickly. Smells of spicy hops. Crisp spicy hop flavor with enough malt precence to balance everything out. The mouthfeel is light, and dry. Overall, this would make for a good brew on a hot summer day. It is light and refreshing, but still has a lot of flavor and personality.

Best before 06-05. Pours in easy and good with a thick white head that stays well. Nice golden color but litle opalizing.
Smell is wonderfully malty, great yeast and decent but fine hops.
Taste is as a Munich Hell should taste if I may say it or you ask Munich people( I'm oly 50% bavarian). Love this brew thats malty, fresh, fully yeast flavoured and has a nice but quiet bitter aftertaste!

This beer, though of very differnt style, kept reminding me of fresh Pilsner Urquill from the tap. Odd huh?

The color was of a transparent, vibrant, and deep gold. Carbonation was very light and could be easily seen. Head was light, bright white, and offered a bouquet of floral, herby, and lightly bitter scents. Taste was more herby and of 'earthy' flavors than Hofbrau Helles. Taste was more pronounced and 'in your face'. Mouthfeel was smooth and relaxing. Good session beer.

A nice helles. Nothing fancy however. Grassy, nice drying hops in the finish, lightly fruity. Finish is hoppy and dry and as i mentioned grassy. Also quite crisp aswell, relatively refreshing, softish, lightly fizzy mouthfeel, an easy drinking helles, but not a boring one, very pleasant(Tap-GBBF 03')

Fresh on tap in Munich.
A nice pale gold color. This beer was perfect for a hot day in Munich, crisp, dry and quenching. I has a great hop bitterness that was accompanied by a subtle maltiness. The hop bitterness definitely dominates the flavor of this one, but it also has the malt backbone to balance. A very good example of a Helles, far better than most.

Pours a golden straw color with a medium sized white head that fades into a good amount of lace. Nose is dominated by sweet German malts with some notes of hay. Moderate in body and quite smooth with a very fine soft carbonation. Taste is sweet rich malts blended with some grassy and grain husk notes. Some spicy and bitter hops round out the taste and leave a dry finish. A very nice choice for a session beer.

4.06/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Clear, bright gold body topped by a bright white head that holds OK but drops to a standard collar and whispy surface foam. Great Munich malt aroma and delicate hop background. The body is medium with a very fine and moderate carbonation that leaves it creamy in the mouth. The flavor is of rich Munich malts supported by spicy hops. Long malty finish. This is a very straightforward beer with a great Munich malt character. Quite an exceptional beer. Not complex, but with a great depth of character. Sweet, but also very well-balanced and exceptionally drinkable. Absolutely worth seeking out.

4.13/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Lightest and sweetest Helles yet--perhaps even paler than a US macro. Sweetness is unsurpassed for any Helles tried thus far. I like Jason's grape skin description. It is apt. Little bit more boozy, party feel than other Helleses (sp?). No special hopping schedule to discern, like Paulaner or Hacker.

Ditto on the $10 price!

SIDENOTE: Bit of a clinical, soapy scent in the glass. Graininess, perhaps? I salt-washed and hot-rinsed the glass, yet it was still there. Must try another to be sure!

Yellowish haylike color with very thick foamy head that lasts and lasts. Smells like a wheat field. Smooth and drinkable with a wheat-like sweetness with a slight nice bitterness.

4.3/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Presentation: 12 oz slender brown Euro style bottle, no freshness date.

Appearance: Bright straw colour with a two fingered white lace that holds strong, lace sticks all over the glass.

Smell: Hay-like grainy aroma with hints of grape skin and husk, quick run of herbal hop also.

Taste: Smooth moderate body with a crisp medium carbonation. Grassy malt flavours throughout, dry from the get go with lots of character from the malt. Flavours run from grain and husk to suggestions of grape skin and grass. Hops are bitter to the point of not getting in the way, still very noticeable by adding to the poignant dry finish.

Notes: Delicate without being complex, flavourful without being complicated. Clean and crisp with an unsurpassing drinkability.
