While in Bavaria for a month, or so, I had a lot of exposure to the Helles style (so much so, honestly, I got a bit tired of it) that I feel extremely confident in judging it. It has a full mouthfeel. It’s malty and lightly sweet. It has a wonderful bright white head that clings to your glass, leaving picturesque lacing throughout the length of your glass.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at brewpub-june 2012-pours clear yellow hue with a fizzy white head and vigorous carbonation. nose is grainy with some spicy hops-spirtzy. flavors are mostly clean pale grains and not much else-maybe a splash of noble hops on the finish. clean beer however, somewhat boring for the style. Im kind of suprised it rates so high for this style. big clean cereal notes on the finish with not much else.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
a - normal lager yeast smell, but a subtle hint of some nice toast and very very light hops.
a - beautifully clear golden lager - decent head that dissipates quickly to a scattered layer with a tad bit of lacing.
t - an easy drinking lager with some nice sweet grain notes, subtle hops and a great cracker finish. The malt is in the forefront of this beer and it is really tasty for such a light beer. Very sweet grain, but not cloying, and a really nice toasted malt character.
o - a great beer and easy to drink. This style is not seen enough because it is such a "light" beer, but I think that more of these would do the craft beer world good.

No aroma at all, this hurts this beer. But very easy to drink (like most lagers) Mild bitterness with sweet maltyness... not bad.
