2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Pours a hazy yellow. The aroma is a little citrus. The taste is light and refreshing. A little sour taste to it.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz can, thanks to Nate. Labeled "TWISTED Helles". Awesome can art. Labeled 5.5% ABV and 18 IBU. Both the Frankenmuth and Stevens Point locations are credited on the can. Code on bottom reads: 1433SP. Mildly hazy darker golden color. Pours with a bigger white head, that fades to a thin amount, and is kind of airy in general. Leaves decent lace. Light to medium body. Lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Bready and citrusy aroma is not bad, though the citrus may be a little overboard. Taste has a lightly macro bite to it, unfortunately. It’s a fine helles, but not something that competes with the better examples of the style, I think. Light bitter taste, less sweet. Just an OK helles... Not too bad too drink, good for the summer, sure. Awesome packaging, too. But there’s better choices (at least in bottles). Not sure what the price is, though.. If it’s in line with Stevens Point prices, than this could be a decent buy.
