Golden color with a thin head.
Aroma with notes of hay, oranges, mild DMS and grainy malt sweetness.
Flavor with notes of hay, honey, floral hops, grains, orange drops, distant green apple and some toffee. Slowly dry aftertaste with a mild bitterness.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation.
Malty and grainy Helles. I wonder how it is to drink this in Germany, here it always feels quite tired.

Pours a golden yellow colour with two finger white head which quickly evaporates into a micro film.

Nice and fizzy, just enough carbonation.

Very well balanced bready malt and herbal hop flavour.

Never had a bad German brewed Helles, and this is another beauty.

11.2oz bottle poured into a pint glass shows a bright golden yellow body and floats a quickly disippating white head.
Minimal active bubbles and no lacing. Enjoy by end of 03.17, only 2 1/2 months late.
Aroma and flavor is classic noble hops and clean malt back. The floral hint is nice.
Mouthfeel is medium and clean.
Overall this should be always in my fridge.

I used to think this was benchmark of lager beers. It still is outstanding, but a bit malty. If you are looking for a great lager, this is still one to go to.

From Decervecitas. In Bavaria Hefe glass. Playing 12 Labours of Hercules V. Sweet bready malt with grassy hops bitterness and a light body. Nice but I miss a bit more body. Good initial aspect but foam dissipates pretty quick

A: [3.50] The bottle has a date code (11/16) but I am not sure what that refers to. It also lists the ABV (5.5%). The beer is a pale golden color. Almost no head at all.

S: [3.50] Very Lager-y. It has corn, sweetness from the malts, maybe some spiciness from some hops.

T: [4.00] Flavor is better than the nose. Very sweet with caramel and toffee flavors. There is also some grassiness and spiciness from the hops.

M: [3.50] A little thin and fizzy.

O: [3.50] I have a warm spot for Hacker-Pschorr in my heart. This was my go to beer in Germany when I visited. This is a decent lager. I am sure I am giving a small bump for nostalgia. The taste is quite good. The nose is prototypical lager. The appearance is lacking head so that is a bit of a downer at the start. This is a great dock beer or something for socializing.
