3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz can purchased as a single at the Whole Foods in Coral Springs, Florida. Canned 9/5/14 stamped on the bottom of the can. The pour is ever so slightly hazed golden with a smallish white head. The aroma is cracker sweet malt, along with a bit of apple or pear fruit, and some grass. The taste is the sweet fruit malt up front, some light caramel and then grass towards the end. The palate is light to medium bodied with some mineral and sweetness lingering in the finish. Solid Helles, though a bit on the sweet end of the spectrum for my personal taste.

Light in body with fine to average carbonation. Fairly crisp on the finish, moderately sweet, with further biscuity, crackery malts and minimal bitterness. Simple but very nice.
