Good looking lager with medium carbonation. Good lacing. A lovely aroma of lemon honey and bread. A really nice semi carbonated mineral water mouthfeel. Beautifully balanced with pilsner notes but a sweeter overall finish.... just as a Helles ought to be. I wish I had several instead of just one so I could really get into the subtle flavours. This is a superb lager. The bottle is beautiful by the way! All lager fans should try this delicious beer.

My mark out of one hundred would be 83.

500ml bottle served in a big Weihenstephaner lager glass.

A: Pours an absolutely clear pale yellow color forming a big bubbled and creamy white head. Medium retention and some thin and lingering lacings left in the glass

S: Great smell of sweet grains. Very bready. Notes of honey followed by flowery hops

T: Sweet malts in upfront. Very bready and crispy. Notes of honey. Mild bitter hoppy end. Excellent balance

M: Such a smooth, creamy and, at the same light body. Medium retention and a delicious bready and crispy aftertaste

O: Excellent drinkability. I can imagine myself drink gallons of this beer. State of art German Lager

11.2 oz bottle was poured into a goblet. That's all the hotel had for glassware.

Appearance: This beer poured a one dinger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a golden straw yellow with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Pilsner malts, some sweetness and some grassy and spicy hops.

Taste: Pretty much same as above.

Mouthfeel: Chewy, smooth, light bodied, refreshing, crisp, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Pretty solid helles lager. Solid beer.

This should be good. Looks textbook: pale golden, lots of bubble, but just at first, perfect two finger fluffy head.
Smell of noble hops, herbs, spices and sweet grains.
Taste is awesome. Malts are grainy and sweet, but not too much, just enough. A low lemon zing, sweet (to dry) red apple. Spiciness really sells this beer, really tasty and packing a very nice unexpected hint of vanilla. German hoppy finish, herbal and bitter.
Not so much carbonation as you'd expect from the pour, it's smooth and chewy. Perfect mouthfeel.
This is a perfect example of a German lager, a benchmark for others. Really good.
