Draft. Clear gold, short white head. Very faint pale malt aroma, minimal hop aroma, light makeup powder / vitamin scent. Light body, fizzy carbonation, light graininess to the malt. Sweet, low bitterness, medium acid. A bit of alkaseltzer / calcium carbonate.

Bomber listed as Lucky as Helles. I assume this is the same beer. I’ll do some homework and adjust as necessary. Pours a cloudy golden color with a large white head. The aroma is grainy sweet honey. The flavor is slightly skunky, some honey malt, light yeast, pepper, sulfur. Pretty good.
