BierMeHoos (576) - Maryland, USA - MAR 30, 2015
On tap at Franklin’s Restaurant, Brewery & General Store in Hyattsville, MD, part of a flight of 10. Appearance pours a clear yellow-golden color. Aroma smells of bread, wheat, and grain. Taste of grain and bread again, but not too notable. Palate is light body and moderate carbonation. Overall, pretty average, and Franklins has a lot of other beers that are more tasty.

4 fl. oz sample at the brewery. Pale yellow in the glass, small white head. Low yeasty on the nose. Starts grainy with malt. Real good malty. Like a Export/Helles. Maybe a little bit too low carbonated.
