Beautiful! Nicely hazy golden orange color, with a compact, creamy and velvety, lasting and dense head. Smell is kinda weak but shows nice fruity aromas. The taste is round and sweet, nicely fruity with fresh notes of citrus and maybe hints of peaches and mangos. Yeasty, with some enjoyable fruity notes of alcohol. Juicy hops get dry in the finish. Good level of carbonation that refreshes the palate. Lightly bready. Good, well balanced and drinkable.

As with all of their beers I found this one to be a little bit watery. It was hazier than I also thought it should have been too. The aroma was a combination of fruity, floral, and bean like. The flavor was about the same. It had a frothy off white head and not much for lace. The body was a bronze color with a fair amount of carbonation. The taste was very beany with a subtle bitterness. The mouthfeel was soapy.

I had a sampler at Ambräusianum, the helles, the dunkles and the weizen. The helles was fairly standard. Drinkable but not near some of the the others you can get in Bamberg. There was little hop aroma or flavor and it was just an overall plain bier.

Served on-draught into a .5l Seidel at Ambrausianum. Cost was 2.70 euro. Reviewed from notes taken June 2011.

A: Pours a one finger head of nice cream, good thickness, and average retention. Colour is a hazy light gold.

Sm: Cream and slight sourness (?). A light aroma.

T: There's a very familiar flavour I can't quite place - not quite sourness but something in that neighborhood is present from the open to the midpoint. Some sort of ester is present on the fringe. Nice cream on the backend. There's some slight sourness in the finish. Clean malts are decently layered. Nicely complex and balanced.

Mf: Smooth and wet, complementing the flavours nicely.

Dr: Very affordable and quite refreshing. Quite drinkable indeed. I'm pissed off about not being able to identify the main note; it's on the tip of the tongue but I just can't place it. I'm sure other reviewers have encountered this phenomenon. Forgive the nebulousness.

50cl serving in seidel at Ambräusianum in Bamberg

A- Hazy straw body with excellent retention and lacing.

S- Very light musty malt with a hint of lemon and earthy hop.

T- Thin flavour profile, no noteable malt presence with a hint of hop bite coming through. Perhaps a touch of green apple but to be honest any flavour is obliterated by the aggressive carbonation. Dry finish.

M- Medium/thin body with aggressive carbonation.

D- Didnt enjoy this. Over carbonated with no real flavour profile obvious to me.

The head is low and white, no lacing. The liquid is a bit cloudy and the colour gold with a hint of orange.

The smell is light and somewhat earthy with some bitter hints and a touch of fabric.

The taste is light and malty with a mild sweetness. The character is rather weak. Some bitter-flowery notes and hints of ripe apples. The aftertaste got a growing malt sweetness and hints of vegetables.

The carbonation is mild. Small mild bubbles. Medium smooth liquid.

Well, a below-average helles, this one. Lacks character.

My second Brewery stop on my Bamberg Beer Trail; March 2011.

Had the Beer Sampler with one each Helles, Hefe-weizen and Dunkel. Tasted in that order. Had Beer Soup (Which wasn't great) and two Pretzels to cleans the palate between beers.

Sample size was.1L from the tap in a straight sided glass. (Looked like a juice glass).

Cloudy Amber beer with half a finger of head that dissipated first of the three beers that were served.

Slightly yeasty odor with a hint of hops.

Mild hops taste, hint of floral with a distinguishable bitterness at the end. Smooth with slightly diluted mouthfeel.

This beer has average drinkability. This beer does not stand out for Bavarian Helles in a region where there are so many brewers creating their versions of the same.
