Un-impressive for the most part. For some reason i think if you got this in a keg - even die hard Bud only drinkers would like it. Not that im comparing this to Bud, because this is way better.

Extremely fruity for a pale lager, but somehow this appeals to me. Lagers are probably my least favorite beer style but this one really stands out. Pours nicely with a doughy, fruity bouquet. My only complaint is that it seems to weaken and thin out around mid bottle.

Possibly Ayinger’s worst offering. Still, their worst isn’t all that bad. A quality lager, but unless I am really in the mood for an Ayinger and nothing but an Ayinger, I will pass on this Helles unless it’s the only style in stock.

Amazing nose--sweet and intensely hoppy--Saaz? Tettnang? This beer is what Prima Pils is trying to be--an amazing balance of crisp, slightly floral hop flavor with a delicate fruity malt undertone. Great, full mouthfeel, dangerously quaffable stuff.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
An okay beer with some interesting flavor going on. Not the best texture, a little watery and thin flavor bordering on too sweet.

turned me around to Helles. Clean, delicate and dry. I would like to drink this with Hungry Howies Cajun Crust Pizza.

big frothy head and looks like a tainted urine sample, light, bubbly, and malty, not too bad

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A whiff of piney hops. Grainy and malty with a hint of caramel. Bright yellow. Modest head. Cleansing, lightly bitter finish. Nice refreshment while sitting on the patio in the heat, daydreaming,
while bbqing a pork roast on the grill. I can’t see myself drinking this when the temps chill.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This was a mistake purchase while going for the wheat, so quite a palate shift was needed when I finally realized my mistake. This beer is defined by the grain that went into its genesis. The hops fade towards the background, and there, center stage, is Jahrhundert. Sweet and grainy, with with a strong dough-filled body. Whoever first coined the term ’liquid bread’ did so while sampling this beer. Not quite my cup of tea, but malt fans will love this.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very smooth and refreshing. Doughy, grainy aroma. Crisp, clean, with bread-like notes on the aftertaste. Nice soft carbonation.
