Growler at Shenandoah Throwdown. Poured a clear golden yellow with a healthy, bright white head. Nose is pretty muted with older malt and honey. Opens to fresh dough. Taste is sweeter, mild soap, ending with some mealy apple type of flavors but nothing bad. No butter, no flaws. Extremely simple Helles lager.
