This dortmunder export lager pours a light golden color with a fairly high amount of carbonation and a medium, foamy, quickly dissipating, white head. There is really almost no smell, but there is a faint yeastiness if you really take a good whiff. On the initial taste there is almost no flavor either, but then in the aftertaste you get a nice biscuit character and a little sweetness possibly of honey with a very mild hop bitterness that follows. The body is light even compared to a pilsner, which I thought it was at first, and it is very refreshing almost like drinking water. This would be a pretty good summer beer or a beer to have after a workout. What flavor it does have is really quite good. There is nothing at all offensive about this beer, but it is just way too mild and light bodied for my taste. Ayinger Jahrhundert Bier is apparently of the same style, which is hard for me to believe because it is completely different and in my opinion quite a bit better.

Clear golden color with white head. Aroma has nice bready malt and a fresh hoppiness. Taste is sweet and malty at first, finish is slightly bitter. Clean, bread and honey notes overall. Light to medium body with crisp carbonation. Clean and easy to drink.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Served cool from 500ml bottle into straight pilsner mug.

L) Light golden colour, clear, medium carbonation for the style, 2cm white bubbly head which fades quite quickly to a thin bubbly film. Definite marks off for the poor head.

S) Actually, very little, which is a big disappointment, as the standard Tegernsee Hell is a very pungent malty Helles. Very faint lager malt odour. Nothing unpleasant, but very disappointing.

T) Back on track here: Soft chewy Munich malt flavour, no real bitterness, very clean flavour.

F) Very clean flavour, very pleasant soft carbonation. The bier's strongest aspect.

O) Decent Helles, I was expecting better based on previous enjoyment of the standard Tegernsee Hell, but extremely drinkable all the same.

330 ml bottle. Pours straw with foamy white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of Noble hops and bready malt. Body is light and smooth. Taste is of bready malt and grassy hops. Finish is long and dry. Good Helles.

500ml Bottle as a Christmas gift:
Yellow to golden colour with a clear body and topped with a thin, foamy white head that settles to a thin lacing covering the surface of the beer and looking very much like a lager should.

Sweet lager malts and some light grassy hops along with a little citrus and touches of freshly cut grass. Thankfully there isn't any skunk coming through but there is some faint hints of vanilla.

Sweet lager malts with a lacing of grassy hops although these are quite light. There is some citrus with the lemon coming out strongest whilst still remaining faint and in the background and some grain too.

Sweet with a medium body and touches of grain but a beer that remains highly drinkable and an easy one to consume. It is a refreshing beer with a well-carbonated body that has a good balance with the of tangs to it as well.

A very good beer and definitely up there with the best lager-style beers I think I have tried. Slightly sweet with a great balance between flavours and one that proved very easy to drink from the start.

500ml bottle served in a Weizen glass.

A: Pours a clear pale yellow color forming a big white and bubbled head. Medium to low retention but a thin layer is quite persistent in the surface and quite many lacings are formed and leftin the glass

S: Classic German Lager in the nose, very grainy with strong notes of sweet malts, bread and flowery hops. Lager yeasts

T: Follows the nose. Slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of sweet grains and bready Lager yeast. In overall, a dry beer despite of the sweet grains upfront. End is made of mild and bit citrus hops bitterness. A bit ashy and metallic

M: Light body. Medium to high carbonation. Bready and grainy aftertaste

O: Good drinkability. Another smooth and easidrinking German Lager beer

I bought this beer on my last trip to Germany in july this year. I pickepd up some bottles in the town of Heilbronn, the middle of Germany. This is a beer from the south of the country. Bottle best before october 26th 2012.

Poured in a half liter mug this beer does not look very spectacular. Golden fluid with a few bubbles as carbonation. Two fingers head which disappears in a minute leaving some lacing in the glass.

Now the smell and taste. Smell is ok but not breathtaking. It is as to be expected in this style. Taste is rather flat because of the lack of carbonation. Some sweetness with a bit dry aftertaste.
