Straw colored with white head that disapates rapidly. Malt in aroma. Taste is classic, nothing outstanding with slight hops in the finish. Light, malty flavor and slightly bitter. This brew won't steal the show, but it's very drinkable and nicely balanced.

From the bottle, it pours a clear golden with a moderate head, slowly dissipating to a thin layer. A bit of malt in the nose. A bit of malt in the mouth. Enjoyable.

11.2 fl. oz. bottle
Served in a pokal glass

This beer pours pale yellow in color and is topped with three inches of creamy, white head that leaves a little lacing.

The main aroma is toasted grain.

The taste is pretty much the same with a clean finish.

Moderate to thin mouthfeel

'Tis the Octoberfest season. It is an easy drinker and lacks much flavor.

Pleasant golden lager, but appearance is slightly spoiled by a modest head with only ok retention.

Aroma is classic Helles: light and biscuity, not much going on, save a kiss of floral, slightly vegetal hops on the back end.

Flavor follows: it's a straightforward, inoffensive brew good for the summer months and to innocuously accompany meals. Nice clean malt presentation without graininess; surprising amount of bitterness. Not at all over sweet.

Easy drinking feel; you can easily pound these back, if that's your leaning. Doesn't lend itself well to sipping.

On-tap @ The Landing in Hillsborough, NJ.

Enjoyed this one during their Oktoberfest celebration. Pale gold color and clear with a creamy white head. Bready, grainy malt aroma. Just the right amount of herbal hops for balance. Slightly sweet in the finish with a touch of bitterness. Medium-light body and so incredibly soft and clean. Too easy to drink. I could have several of these in a row with ease. A textbook Helles.

Had this at the Paulaner Restaurant in Zhengzhou.
This is a tasty lager, very malty. Lots of wheat and bread flavors. Not a noticeable hop bitterness. Light and easy drinker, good choice for a hearty dinner. I think this pairs better with a broader range of food than the Hefe, although the Hefe is more refreshing.

DATE: August 5, 2016... OCCASION: The Olympic opening ceremonies begin, while I wait for Jerry and Matt to arrive... GLASSWARE: Ommegang pokal... crystal clear, imperial golden body that has a fleeting, off-white head that takes the form of uneven suds...solitary bubbles... a perfumed lightly, aromatically hopped--lilac and with crisp cracker malts making for an invitation... smooth, light, slightly syrupy, but highly drinkable and uninhibited... a light-bodied lager that dissipates without much of a draw or drag... the taste profile is soft and apologetic, with less of a "hearty" impact than expected... a bit beefy, with the vegetable and butter flavors of an honest lager... as Paulaners go, no match for the hefe, but a pleasantly light lager that has hints of toasted bread, flowers and dry champagne...
