Poured a pale crystal yellow with a one finger white fizzy head that disappeared quickly. Sweet grain aroma. The taste is mild; grass, cracker and honey. Medium body and carbonation. Overall, this seems more like an American AL rather than the typical Munich Helles Lager. For the price, I would rather have an American lager.

A light golden brew, at first I noticed a hoppy bitter flavor, followed by a honey-like sweetness. A light bubbly feel and a faint sweet aroma finish the experience.

This is decent, though more of a Premium/Export Lager than a Helles.
It can't really hide it's industrial character.

The ratings on this beer are very confusing to me? Poured out of a green bottle, so a bit of skunky silver on the nose, and again in the aftertaste. As good of a beer as I have had in a green bottle, but still...

This beer pours a crystal clear pale golden color. The clarity is unbelievable. Really amazing to look at. The head is two fingers, a bit dense and bright white. Retention is minimal as well as lacing.

Smell is grass, yeast, crackers, bread, a touch of citrus and spice.

Taste is similar, but much less flavorful and even a bit muddled. It's a bit one dimensional.

Feel is very light and not as crisp as I would like. A bit watery even. Very easy drinking though.

Overall this beer is ok. Certainly a level above AALs, but I would take Yuengling over it. I've been drinking a lot of Southern Tier Why The Helles Not lately, and frankly this beer is not even in the same stratosphere.

First had at Tyrolen Biergarten, Liseberg, Göteborg, Sweden, on draft into 0.5l mug. Another really enjoyable German lager; maybe these kinds of beers will also soon be widely available in America as our craft beer industry matures.

L: Pours a clear golden color with a small top of head that disolves very rapidly.

A: Aroma of light bread, yeast,grass and spices hops

T&F: Starts of with a hint of grass and herbs with some light malts inn the background and it finishes off with a slight hoppy bitterness and a decent lenght on the aftertaste. Light bodied with medium carbonation. Crisp and clean mouthfeel but i feel it is to flat and watery.

O: A decent and easy driking everyday lager for sure, but is other german helles i would choose before this one. A little weak compared to other german examples of this style.
