2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
As my much more learned colleagues have mentioned, this is a hazy golden color, but just a slight haze. To me, it has the aroma of one of those handmade honey soaps you'd find at Body Shop or some ritzy shop, or a scented candle. Has an interesting sweet flavors with some tart to balance, as well as the mild hops my European friends mention. I've yet to taste the Helles from this brewer but this is their best of the three I've tried.
