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.

Terminus (3316) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Tap at brewpub May 2012-pours lightly hazy gold with a small soapy white head. nose is lightly sweet lite spicy hops and some toasted cereal grains. flavors follow suit with a nice sweet toasted malt base, lite cereal and lite spicy hops. comes across a bit sweet to me however, its well done for the style and clean. For me, it could use a bit more bittering hops, but then it would be a Bohemian Pils. Good none the less.
