November 2007: 500 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal pub, Stavanger. ABV is 5.6%. Contract brewed for Weltenburger Kloster by Brauerei Bischofshof in Regensburg. Crystal clear and very pale golden colour, huge and lasting white head. Moderate sweetish aroma of flowers and honey. Smooth and soft flavour of pilsener malts, moderate fruity and honey sweetness, very moderate hops. Drinkable of course, but not very exciting.

Ya, the smell is not anything special here. Taste is typical for the style, with wheat, banana, and pear flavors. The look is generic, except for the head, which is very compact and fluffy. The mouthfeel is the winner here. Very syrupy for a 5.6 beer and the head is DELICIOUS--so fluffy and soft. A nice one to drink on the regular, if only the price were more local than import...

Light amber in color and somewhat hazy. Ripened peach, green apple and pear as well as gum sweetness. Has a honey sweetness with more light fruits, some biscuit crust and a faintly herbal denouement. Medium in body, smooth and soft. Never can tell how long these imports have been sitting around and where but this one triumphs in the satisfaction department even though it's a little sweet in spots.

Clear golden color with white head.Aroma is mostly focused on earthy/leafy hop notes with a clean malt background. Taste is astringent, grainy, slightly tart, hoppy with a light to medium bitterness and dry finish. Medium body and carbonation. Quite smooth yet dry lager, really well brewed and easy drinking.

On tap at BC's Pizza & Beer

S: Spicy, fruity, mild citrus, bready malt, and and a little caramel/honey sweetness.

T: Mild citrus up front, orange and lemon, a bit spicy, fruity notes, pear, apple, bready malt, and honey sweetness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Nice way to jump into Oktoberfest. Digging the citrusy notes.

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.
