12oz can. Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Bland and thinner all the way around, but it is a helles ... grassy with some citrus.

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.

Bland flavor and "Bud" appearance. Nothing bad, but a "craft" beer only because of the brewer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can: Lightly hazed, yellow-straw color with a stark white head that turns into a soapy film & mildly chunky collar quickly. Aroma filled with sweet honey biscuit malt, mild sugar cookie sweetness, bread, crisp yeast, & just a moderate hint of sharp grass that creeps into the back-end for balance. Taste includes some zesty lemon & citrus spritz up front, leading into a nice balance of malt; buttered sweetbread & lightly toasted crackers. Good amount of lager yeast in the aftertaste, lending to a dry, crisp finish. This is a damn good helles lager, & I could see myself crushing cans of this during the summertime.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Hazy, pale yellow color with a fizzy white head. Faint lemon-lime, grassy aroma. Initial flavor of bitter citrus, balances out with a light malty finish. Lingering tones of lime. Watery texture with average carbonation. A nice hot weather thirst quencher.
