Pours slightly hazy, gold in color with 1/3 inch head. Taste is cereal, white bread, and honey malt. Light bodied, high carbonation, crisp, and slightly sweet. Tasty, clean lager. Could do several of these.

L: Golden colored, very mild haze. Tons of visible carbonation swirling in glass. Great head retention
S: Classic lager aroma. Very sweet honey malts, granola, graham cracker with hints of citrus.
T: Repeat of the nose with a slightly fruity and herbal hop bite on the finish.
F: Very smooth and easy to drink. A bit more body than something like a helles but still light overall. Carbonation provides a mild crispness but its mostly smoothed out
O: Great beer, a bit expensive overall but certainly worth visiting if looking for a really good lager.

From the bomber bottle in a snifter. This lager pours a nice clear golden with
a firm head of white foam that settles to a thick ring, thin subtle pool, and shows some
nice sudsy lacing. Nose of sweet honey malts and subtle breaded malt notes. Flavors
nail the style spot on with breaded malts, sweet honey pale malts, and a subtle crisp
apple note that is followed with a subtle wafting herbal; hop. Excellent mouth feel;
light body, medium carbonation that is lively, and a crisp lightly clean finish.

Overall excellence from Germany

Clear light gold color. Modest head which settles to a thin layer of bubbles. Some streaks for lace.

Fresh and grainy -- it smells like unmalted barley. Very pale malt nose. No hop.

A true Helles with a light sweetness to the tongue. The taste is far more malty and less grainy than the smell. Again, no hop. Surprisingly fuller body almost creamy. Equally good level of carbonation. This beer takes me back to the beer gardens of Bavaria. The aftertaste is like a film of milk on the tongue and slightly sweet.

Delicious helles lager. Perfect color with medium airy head. Aroma is biscuity and slightly sweet.Taste is spot on for the style, with a little lingering bitterness on the palate. Not overbearing, but enjoyable...

Clear golden color with white head. Aroma is mostly grainy with some white bread and a touch of honey. Taste follows, grainy, dusty, earthy with some cooked corn flavor and a bit of booze. Light to medium body with medium carbonation. Quite flawed, not really a good example of a helles.

This tasty was a gift from a colleague that recently went to Germany.

The beer poured a beautiful medium gold, clear with moderate carbonation. There was a two fingered head typical of a German lager.

The nose was interesting, not at all what I was expecting. I got hints of herbs, bread and caramel. There was just a touch of malt on the end.

The taste had hints of that caramel and honey with a crisp malty finish. Nice and dry on the old palate.

This is a fine drinking beer. Nice crisp mouthfeel, which is typical of the style. I don't think they export, so I'll have to wait for my next tasty from this braueri.
