Traditional Helles-style lager—Munich’s initial answer to Bohemian Pils—very pale, with significant sweet malt flavor and drying hop finish. The base beer for this year’s Funkiest of Show, Nacho Sancho Ancho.

degbert (1442) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 30, 2015
Can. Pours a hazy gold with a high, mixed-grained, lazy, white head. Nose is tropical fruit, honey, baking bread, yeast, and soft hop notes. Not terribly sweet; a little white pepper, a little more tropical fruit, relatively soft and muted, not much hops. Finish is long and cooling. Very mild, almost too much so.

kidmartinek (3979) - austin, Texas, USA - AUG 26, 2015
Pours pale yellow. Cloudy. White foam head. Smells like corn. Tastes like it too. The only redeeming quality are the earthy undertones.

GreatDane1632 (1124) - Alabama, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Rated based on notes taken 20 May 2012 -- I think this beer is great. Awesome malt with some complexity in there to make it that much better.

On tap at the brewpub. Comes a slightly cloudy pale gold with a small white head. Aroma of fruit, malt, and grain. Taste is fruit, lemon, malt, and wheat. Well made and very drinkable.

Lively carbonation powers a pleasant bouquet of aromas from the pour. The appearance is pleasant, a true gold body with a creamy head. The palate is right for the style and the hop character is a complimentary herbal but earthy note. This is the most delicious beer I have tasted from Freetail.

On tap at brewpub. Pours a clear orange gold with a small off white head. The aroma is wheat and hay. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet wheat and honey flavor with a sweet finish. Easy to drink a very good Helles from Freetail.
