Canned, plenty of yeast floaters, taking away from the clarity. Sweet aroma, but balanced flavor. A bit of a clash between the malt sweetness and the bitterness. Despite being ice cold, not as refreshing as the name implies. Overall a bit dull.

Sabe a sour dough, fresh cold cuts, Welchito, fresh barley and hops. La mejor de Cigar City. The perfect lager!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint at Freshcraft. Pours with a clear golden hued body with a medium sized white head. Aromas are bready and toasty grain, lightly grassy. Clean yeast wise. Flavors are bready, clean, lightly sweet malt. Grainy, low hop, light sulfur. Lively bubbles, dry, crisp, quenching. Good solid beer, but not the best Helles I had GABF weekend. Still a good drinking beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Moderate grain note of grain for the malt, light to moderate herbs for the hops, with hints of pepper and wood. Head is average size, frothy/creamy, white with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear pale amber. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then the long finish is lightly acidic and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a lively carbonation and a dry finish. Nice and mellow, this is an excellent version of a Helles.

Pours and smells like a lager - nothing much to speak of. A little apple in the aroma. Nice taste - slightly fruity, a little spicy, very light. Good session beer.

Pours a light gold with a thin white head. Aroma of bready yeast, slight citrus and nice malt profile. Light and easy drinking. Quality take on a classic style
