I've had my fair share from Weltenburger-Kloster and have never been disappointed. This is no exception. Pours a perfectly clear golden straw color with a fine bubbled bone white head that leaves some remnants of lacing. Smells of sweet bread, yeast, and just a touch of spicy noble hops. Taste follows perfectly with such a subtle presence of each element. Feel is so crisp, nice carbonation, dry and inviting enough to constantly demand another sip. Overall, this is an outstanding Helles lager. One that I wish I could buy by the case to enjoy all spring and summer long. Prost!

L: A pale straw gold color, that pours a very creamy smooth frothy head. A little bit of lacing on the glass. Not too many carbonation bubbles.

S: Hints of apple and toasted grain, the aroma isn't the strongest also a little sour tartness.

T: Green apple, quite a bit of toasted malt, quite a bit of sour tartness and just a small hint of spicy hops. The sour tartness stands out as a little weird in with the other flavors.

F: Clean and crisp with a medium body

O: Not a bad beer, but the sour tartness of it stands out as a little odd compared to the rest of the beer.

From Hipercor. In Paulaner glass. Watching Poli de Guarderia. Everithing is fine in this beer but nothing is memorable. A drinkable lager

I bought this bottle at Brass Rail, enjoyed chilled from the bottle in a willybecker.

The color is spot on with nice malt aroma and yeast esters are fruity with good flavor and mouthfeel. I would recommend this to fans of the German lager style. -very reasonable for the price.

Weltenburger Kloster Barock Hell has a very thick, frothy, off-white head, a hazy, bubbly, yellow-gold appearance, and lots of lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of rich, pungent barley malt, sourdough bread, yeast, and a slight cream cheese cake icing note, that one will get with Genesee Cream Ale. Taste is of sweet, bold, barley malt, a slight hop balancing bitterness, and lager yeast. Mouthfeel is medium, and Weltenburger Kloster Barock Hell finishes on the dry side, a little dirty, and highly drinkable.

A rather subdued Helles, with a more pronounced taste of alcohol. Somehow it feels both strange and inviting.
