Sampled from the bottle, poured a light yellow gold, little malt aroma with sweet, faint caramel fragrances, some faint vanilla fragrance, very small hop aroma, flavor of light malt, hints of butter? (small off taste) little hop bitterness on the tongue, very light and easy drink.

Lemon, zest, crispy bite in the finish. Very light bodied, with average malts. This is definitely a summer beer. I could use some of this on the boat dock.

OldGrowth (2751) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - DEC 25, 2006
Bottle, from trade with walleye. Ok aroma, classic pale lager thing going on. Skunky, lemon grass with a lite sweetness. Massive head, 3/4 of glass was foam and took 4 pours to empty bottle, Clean orangy gold color. Sweet & sour flavor, like aroma without that usual bitter bite alot of pale lagers seem to have. Hint of fruitiness kind of orangy peach flavor. Lite body, thin watery mouth feel, bitter dry finish. Tasty, easy to drink brew, could drink it all day. Nice, Thanks walleye.

Light yellow from tap. Fruity with a bit of hop zest. Very light with a fine crisp carbination. Not much good or bad.

A small white head fades quickly atop a mid-golden body that shows a light haze of particulate. As skunk notes fade, I find dry and somewhat stale aromatics with noticable caramel malt beneath wheaty grains. A tart flavor finds lemon and yogurt with a breadiness beneath. A thin palate dissipates the sourness quickly. A quick sniff-and-swig would’ve found this a drain pour... I’m glad I gave it a chance to open up.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 6, 2006
Somewhat cloudy golden body with a huge, frothy white head. A light fruit tinted aroma, green apple, pear and some citrus. A nice citrus body, some lemon, grainy with a nice carbonation. Slightly sweet and carbonated ending, quite nice really.

Tmoney99 (11066) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2006
Draft sample at MBGF. Clear amber with a moderate frothy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Light grainy citrus aroma. Light to medium body with soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of short duration.

drywallman (334) - Lake in the Hills, Illinois, USA - JUL 11, 2006
This had the dark straw look and medium lasting head I expect from a Helles. It had the adequate bready malt taste and slightly honey citrus hops effect going, with a touch of orange. Very good for the warm months.
