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.

L: Clear, light golden color. Small pale head disappears quickly

T/F: Sweet malt, some hops but no bitterness. Moderately carbonated, smooth, and slightly rich

A very nice run of the mill Pilsner like Helles, very clean yellow body with bubbly foamy white head which dies down quickly. Typical nose for the style, good but nothing outstanding. Same with the taste, standard stock, very acceptable and safe. Slight hint of sweetness. Slight dry malts and modest sweetness in the aftertaste. Decent but expensive at $12.99 for a 6-pack.
