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

Full yellow hue, tending to greenish. White head, quite creamy. Some bubbles on the sides, Not very persistent.
The smell is malty, clear, dry. But there are even a good hop, herbal, clean.
The taste is definitely malty. More delicate and less strong than in the smell. After the malt start, anyway, there is a good hop.
Aftertaste on the hop, long.
Medium body, nothing to note, but on the style.
Overall, delicate and inviting.

Bought at a gas station in Germany north of Munich amongst the hop fields. A simple clear beer that is the color of fine corn silk. A thick aggressive head rises and falls quickly on top of this beer. Auer Helles is a simple and unimpressive beer that is along the disappointing lines of an American macro lager.

The nose is sweet but it doesn't have a lot of fingers pointing in the direction of grain. The hops are present but tend to be a little musty. Again not very impressive and simple.

Taste is slightly better then the nose yielding a defined malt that is fresher and tasty. It has a touch of lemon going along with the malt bill. A good step in the right direction but still just an ok beer.

The mouthfeel has a medium body with a light sizzle of carbonation like everything else I find it to be muted and underwhelming. An easy drinking beer which I find myself warming to. It's by no means the best beer I've ever had but I enjoy it's crisp almost dry finish. Nothing spectacular but it works and is worth trying.

.5L bottle purchased and consumed in Bavaria. Very fresh with a best by date of 13 March 2013.

Pours a light golden yellow with a large, creamy near-white head. The head has great feel, very good retention, and leaves nice lacing.

The aroma is rather light and smells a bit too much like a brewery as opposed to a beer.

Although fairly light flavoring, there are no (other) flaws in this Helles, and the sweet/bitter balance is excellent.

Mouthfeel: surprisingly full (medium body) and creamy. Well-chosen medium+ carbonation. 4.25

O: a fine Bavarian Helles, albeit undistinguished except for its great mouthfeel.
