Best beer on earth! Especially the actual draft in Munich.

Pours a three-finger white head that slowly fades leaving some lace. Crystal clear yellow/green color. Medium carbonation and light bodied. Grainy nose and flavor is cereal, citrus, and honey with a light sweetness. $3.25 for a 330ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

The clear light bright yellow colored beer pours out into a Duvel glass with a 1/2” bright white head that slowly but eventually recedes to a thin cap of foam and a ring around the glass while leaving lacing on the sides. Eventually the foam thins out to an irregular island on the surface but the ring and some lacing persist. Sipping creates a couple of thin arches and several scattered spots and legs of lacing.

The aromas are mostly about the crackery malt that is nicely backed up by some floral and slightly grassy hops.

The flavors are mostly about the crackery malt and some light malt sweetness. The floral, lightly grassy hops provide a moderate amount of bitterness.

The mouthfeel is on the light side of medium bodied and crisp with the prickly finely bubbled moderate carbonation. The clean crisp finish begins as the malt and sweetness begin to fade to a slightly floral, lightly bitter dry ending with just a bit of grassiness which moves to the back of the palate before disappearing.

Overall this is an enjoyable and quite drinkable beer which is both flavorful and refreshing. There’s some nice maltiness and the light bitterness serves as a counterbalance to add a touch of hop flavor. I’ll expect I’ll be having this one again and will probably do some side by side tastings with locally brewed Helles lagers.

I tried this at Augustiner in Berlin near the Hilton hotel. It poured a clear golden with white head that left some lace. The scent had faint grain. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a good beer.

Appearance - clear straw colored body with white head

Smell - lemon zest, grain, honey, biscuit

Taste - Grain, biscuit, slight honey sweetness, some lemon zest, bready malts

Mouthfeel - medium bodied, medium prickly carbonation, bready upfront, honey sweetness in the back end, crisp, clean and refreshing, so easy to drink this one

Overall - very good Helles lager that is worth a re-visit

Had this on 2018-06-17 in Columbia, PA from a 330ml bottle

A - Golden-straw with a 1-finger white head that dropped quickly leaving mild lace.

S - White bread, white grape, grassy and floral hops.

T - Delicious. Everything I like in a Helles. The white grape sweetness is very present over an enticing french bread (minus the crust) malt base. The noble spicing is perfect with honey and floral notes. Bitterness is low but enough to balance the lingering fruit/grain sweetness.

M - Light-medium body and carbonation. Smooth.

O - Top notch; really.

From wooden kegs at Augustiner Keller in Munich

Pours a beautiful pale gold, with 3 fingers of head in my mass. Settles relatively slowly. Smells crackery,sightly floral/herbal. Taste is light malt, a touch of honey, incredibly well balanced

Dry, crisp, drinkable.

Pinnacle of the style

I apologize for not being as refined as most reviewers, I'm simply a guy who loves German Helles style lagers. This beer is my absolute favorite beer that I can buy in the US. I've spent some time in Bavaria off and on during my military service and this is the only beer that makes me think I'm sitting in the garden of a gasthaus drinking a litre. It's just that great.

(Reviewed blind)
Pours light straw color. Completely crystal clear with medium effervescence. Pillow-y white head dissipates leaving a ring of white foam along the outside of the beer with some partial spots of foam on top of the beer.

Aroma has notes of grain, bread, lightly toasted. Maybe a whiff of noble hops, but quite subtle.

Taste is predominately grainy – but does have some notes of white bread malts. Bit of sweetness comes through in the flavor – kind of fruity. More pronounced bitterness on the finish – floral.

Medium bodied. Vibrant carbonation. Semi-dry finish.
