Drinking milk in a country mortuary...Emptiness, silence, a gust of grainy wind...And then Uncle Bob brings the case of Bud to ease the pain...Ugh...

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale golden-straw coloured beer with a creamy white head. The nose is pretty rough. Very cidery with a distinct smell of diacetyl and DMS. Quite a lot of apple and higher alcohols as well. A touch of honey and sweet doughy pale malt. I’m not a fan of this one.

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Relatively clean, grainy malts, low bitterness, low sweetness, and quite drinkable. Pretty good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at the brewpub. Pours gold with a white lasting head. Smells of biscuits, some wildflowers, hints of fruit, some pepper. Tastes very malty with some nice dry notes. Good for the style.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at the brew pub 1/09/2014. Clear golden color with thin lasting head. Aroma was light malt and vanilla and light funky yeast. Flavor was toasted honey, hints of grain and wheat. Finish was malty with light bitterness. Texture slightly thick, heavy carbonation giving lively mouthfeel. Overall spot on for a Helles

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draught at the brewery, 4/13/05. Hazy white-gold color, but still quite bright and pleasant looking. Large white head is slowly dissipating to cover, with plenty of lace. Smells of crisp yeast, fresh, floral hops and honey, with a hint of earthiness. Flavor, from the start, integrates the crisp lager yeast, pilsener malt and rustic hops well, with no wateriness and a good medium body. A touch of graininess on the end, mild astringency, but overall a true, if somewhat light, flavor. Some notes of saaz perhaps, with a touch of oranges. Mouthfeel is bubbly and sharp at times, but nothing out of style. I really enjoyed this one, yet it is such a challenging style to brew and even a well-made, enjoyable brew like this does not begin to measure up to the better examples of this style, IMHO.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A perfumy, lightly chemical lager aroma with light orange and talcum powder notes. Pale yellow and clear. Fairly sweet, not very edgy, and somewhat starchy (as I found many of their brews.) A bit of fruity hopping. Finish starts to build after a while.

Tap.Golden with small head. Pretty standard Euro lager style. It’s hard to say where this ranks, they’re all the same to me.
