look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from fridge temp. Pours a perfectly transparent yellow with little head. Nose is piney, citrus, earthy, and a bit hoppy. Taste follows the nose - definitely a nice bitter hoppy taste. Lots of flavor - very woody and citrusy. Good mouthfeel.

Pours clear, gold in color with minimal head. Taste is grass and grain with honey sweetness. Light bodied, crisp, moderate carbonation, and sweet. Really tasty helles lager. Could drink this beer all day. Nice and smooth and well worth a try.

Poured from a brown 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a bright yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, sweet. Taste is malts, grassy, light hops, a touch of sweetness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a refreshing and easy drinking beer.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

No date onto a bottle. Poured into trusty Warsteiner stein.

A: Pours light. Very light. Finger of bleached white head. Mostly transparent yellow with moderate carbonation rising to the surface.

S: Beautiful. Sweet malts meet green grapes meet floral

T: Soft and balanced. Delicate malt sweetness greets the tongue. Mid palate is subdued notes of grape, lightly floral, lightly honeyed and borderline graham cracker sweetness. Swishing around stirs up some of the hop bitterness. It's lightly herbal and grass like in characteristic. Finishes with a very light touch of bready sweetness.

M: Light and balanced. Slightly rounder and not quite 'crisp'. Makes for a pleasant pint.

O: Great stuff, and it better be. This is not a cheap beer.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the Hofbrau Restaurant in Helen, GA. The appearance is a gold colored beer with a large white head. The aroma is mild with grass and some hops. The taste matches the nose. An excellent beer.

Also one of my favorites when I was stationed in Germany. Drank it everytime I found it in the Getranktmarkt.

The Augustiner Lagerbier Hell has always been my favourite Hellesbier, but I thought I'd give this a bash. It just doesn't come up to the other in terms of flavour but it's still a standard lager for the style; maybe leaning more towards a Pils.
