A crisp, direct, uncomplicated and inoffensive, refreshing sessionable lager. Pale golden color with lightly bready smell, lightly carbonated, slight aftertaste that, while not awesome, is not a deal breaker if this is the style you're in the mood for. I wouldn't seek this out necessarily, but if it's a hot summer afternoon and I don't want to think too much about the beer I'm drinking, this is enjoyable enough.

A smooth, yet crisp helles. Clear golden in color with nice medium foamy head. Aroma and taste of malt, hay, bread, everything a decent helles should be.

Tegernseer Hell has a thick, foamy, white head, lots of heavy lacing left on the glass, and a yellow-straw appearance, with bountiful white specks suspended throughout. Some lazy bubble action, too. The aroma is subtle, but the drinker will detect sweet, white cracker from the barley malt and a kiss of hop grassiness. Taste is similar and mild. Mouthfeel is light, and Tegernseer Hell finishes crisp and refreshing. It is more similar than dissimilar to American lagers.

Had on-tap at the Tegernsee brauhaus in Munich. Poured into a stein.

L: Pours a clear deep golden color. Thick creamy white head leaves nice lacing.

S: Malts, hops, and grains. Classic lager beer.

T/F: Nice clean lager. Great balance between the hops and malts. No aftertaste. Nice carbonation and crisp.

O: Great example of the style and a very crisp clean lager. Liked it a lot and I'm not a lager guy.

Aroma has clean malt and lots of noble hops character. Taste is very balanced. Clean malt and earthy, grassy noble hops with a good amount of bitterness to balance out the malts. Light to medium body with crisp carbonation. This is definitely one of the better, classic, helles style lager.
