Big bread aroma in malt. Bright, clear, deep yellow. Simple beer, very clean. A properly represented Helles.

Pale golden, minimal head. Light in body. Slight hop finish to a beer that tastes like Bud Light.

It's basically a Coors Light on steroids. And not the good 1980s-level "I don't care if I get caught" steroids.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours bright blonde with a thin head and medium carbonation. Aroma is sweet, almost like honey-nut cereal. Flavor is light and malty, slightly sweet, with a nice bitter and floral dandelion character. A bit of hop character sustains through the grassy finish, which is clean and crisp. A very nicely done sessionable beer. Too bad it’ll be ignored because it not "imperial" or high ABV.

12 fl oz bottle. From Iowa. Thanks John M!
Clear pale golden colour with a tiny white head.
Weak aroma of malt.
The flavour is mild bitterness and malt. Not very strong.
Light in every way.

Bottle, LOL. Four is a clear copper, some white head. Nothing really stood out about this for me. Some decent hops, albeit a bit stale. Definitely drinkable.

8/23/13. 12oz bottle from BlackIPA. Wife pulled this from the fridge, so here we go. Clear golden copper color with a small, decent off-white head. Oddly sweet aroma, reminds me of marshmallows, vanilla, bits of doughy malts, citrus, and a spice bite. Sweet flavor, hay, straw, vanilla, a floral aspects. Interesting.

Bottle in Iowa City. Thanks to adnielsen for sharing. Pours a clear golden yellow color with white head. Straw, pils, light spicy/yeasty and noble hop flavors. Not a bad helles.

Bottle @ Holiday Inn Iowa City picked up @ John’s Grocery. Pours a hazy yellow appearance with a nice, off white head. Cracker, a bit spicy, vanilla, lemon, a bit tangy aroma. Somewhat spicy, grassy, herbal hoppy, lemon, cracker flavor. A little off but sort of shows promise.

On tap at the brewpub. Comes a clear pale gold with a small white head. Aroma of malt, citrus, and honey. Taste is malt, grain, citrus, and honey. OK.
