11.2oz bottle coded 088M0915 (whatever that means) poured into a becher glass at 47° Fahrenheit 4.9% ABV per label. This beer is not labeled as Urtyp, but simply Hell on the label. The beer pours bright light golden yellow with off white head. The head is short lived and settles to a pencil thin ring and a patchwork of tiny bubbles. Sparce lacing. The aroma is mild with sweet and floral notes. The taste is old, oxidized, flat, slightly sweet malt. Mild bitterness. The mouthfeel is thin to medium bodied with above average carbonation and a dry, minerally finish. Overall, not great. Glad I only bought one.

Pours a clear straw yellow color with a medium top off white head that dissolves quickly.
Aroma is of grains,hay,straw, grass, light bread allong with some slight lemon and honey notes.
The taste is medium sweet with grassy and herbal notes allong with some light malt notes. The finish is slightly bitter with some earthy hop notes. Crisp and clean mouthfeel with a medium carbonation and a medium body. An easy drinking and refreshing helles, but you sure find better examples of this style.

Pours a bright golden, slightly hazed golden color with a huge, stable white head.

Smells of a subtle combination of wheat, wet grass, toffee and fresh crushed grains.

Has a light and very refreshing mouthfeel with a high, yet fitting carbonation level.

Tastes of mellow bread dough, wheat and a profound, strawy, toffee quality, which inherits a subtle impression of dryed grass. Finishes sweeter, with more toffee cutting through, while the hops turn equally drier and therefore remain recognizable till the end.

Very nice, drinking super easy with a well pronounced maltiness, well balanced with the subtle hops.

Served in a pint glass from a can.

Appearance: Gold color with medium bubbles on the body. White head maybe quitarte of an inch off the body.

Smell: Hope and light malts. Comes off an easy scent and but not that I dulling scent.

Taste: Smooth hops, easy to drink brew.

Mouth: Not sticky but very thirst quenching feel.

Overall: Beer three of my advent calendar and definitely not my favorite style of beer but still a product worth picking up.

Received this in a beer advent calendar. Great head, slow dissipation. No real aroma to speak of, but gave no indication of the flavor. The taste was mild and smooth, minimal bitterness. Clean taste and nice mouthfeel. Good beer.

From Hipercor. In Bavaria glass. At dinner, after futsal match, with chicken steaks and soup with potatoes and chickpeas. Dont know if its because of the exercise, but Ive really enjoyed it. Very drinkable and with a balanced and pleasant nose and taste. At the level of their superb pilsner.

Clear golden color with white head. Aroma is grainy with a touch oh bread crust, honey and some earthy hops in the background. Taste is well balanced with a clean malt profile and some astringent and slightly bitter earthy hop notes. Medium body and carbonation. Dry throughout, easy drinking with a lingering astringent feel.

Pale yellow color with medium retention head that dissipates leaving a somewhat persistent layer of bubbles on top of the beer throughout the drinking. Smell malty, crackery with faint grassy notes. A tiny citrous component as well. The taste is sweeter than expected, very malty, bready, almonds with a faint earthy component. Relatively persistent in the aftertaste. Fizzy carbonation and medium body. Pleasant.

Very clear pale yellow, it shows a decent white head with good retention and nice lacing. Clean in the nose, i smell grains, grass, lemon and a hint of honey. The taste is a blend of malts, grassy hops and lemon which stays uniform all along, with only a little sweetness in the background. It finishes dry with almost no aftertaste. Crispy mouthfeel, thin to medium body and great drinkability.

A lighter Helles which i find it to be slightly on the hoppy side and finely complements other offerings from this brewery. It will pair great with a wide variety of foods.

A nice blend between the classic Helles malt profile and a non-offensive - but still slightly more pronounced - hop presence.

500ml bottle. Stange lager glass. Pale straw color, clear appearance. White froth creates close, small bubbled & lasting crown while leaves lacing & spots on sides. Sulfur, grainy & biscuit aromas. Crispy upfront shows slight citric zest notes. Light body. Moderate to high carbonation. Watery texture. Low bitterness but enough to balances maltiness. Citric bitter/sweet finish & dried aftertaste.

I bought two bottles today one to drink now and one to drink with some of my homeade sausage German potato salad and spoetzl.Pours into a 1/2 liter stein a light to medium golden with a hint of honey color,a large blooming bone white head atop that settles slowly.Cleaner aromas with light toasted grain and mild honey-like funky sweetness.Flavors are also cleaner but with some bread dough and more honey sweetness,a light mineral note underneath.Not much in the frills department here but Iam not looking for that with this beer,I just wanted a good food friendly German lager and I got it.
