3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Damn impressive helles. The two days a week I have any interest in this style of beer are saturday and sunday. This makes a perfect start to a weekend day. Nice hoppy aroma, and then the goregous german style malt kicks in with bits of honey and straw, which I love in this style of beer. Then just enought hops come back to dry out the mouth and ask for another.

The Hallertau aroma reminded me of sweaty gym socks. Anyway, the taste was fairly crisp and reminded me of a pilsner in a way.

Nice head, straw color, rising carbonation, floral aroma. Medium body, some sweetness with hoppy spiciness and citric notes. Very nice.

Big white head. Good lace. Nice aroma. The nose is a mix of hops and malt. Very refreshing. Dry. Very smooth. Good brew.
