Lack of aroma (could be the glass) with a pale yellow color. Balanced malt and hops give way to a hop bite reminiscent of a Czech pilsner. Finishes clean.

Poured from can into pint glass: Pours golden with a one finger white head. Aroma is corn, champagne, grass. Taste is more of the same with a nice sweetness to be expected with this beer, and a little bitter finish on the back end. Light body, medium carbonation, nice beer for it’s style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: clear gold with two fingers of creamy, fizzy white head, decent lacing. Aroma: prominent aroma of sweet corn, light cracker, some grassy hops. Taste: sweet, corny and grainy, with a bit of earthy, grassy hops and just a hint of pepper. Finish: sweetness lasts a bit, and there’s a bit of minerality. Notes: This was not a bad beer, but I can’t help but compare it unfavorably to the Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold. Can from Knightly Spirits in Orlando, Florida.

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.
