bottle - Pours clear yellow with a one finger white head. It has a light cereal malt aroma iwth a hint of hops. The flavor is lightly hopped and is well balanced by the malts. Definitely let it warm up some and I think the result is a pleasant, light session brew. Not bad.

Not strong for a German pilsener, rather mild with a light to medium biterness. It has a somewhat bitter aftertaste and is very drinkable. It could be characterized as a solid pilsener but not stellar.

Ugh...one of my most hated beer styles. So thin and watery with not much taste. However, this is good compared to the others of this style. Pour was a dark yellow with a one finger white head. Aroma of wheat and some lemon. Taste was very fizzy and the carbonation drowned out what little flavor this beer had. There was some cereal-ness to flavor and some yeasty grains if that makes sense.

Not bad helles, typically heavy on the yeast with a healthy head. But not as good as many of its Munich competitors. Could stand more hops, or at least a stronger strain.

Bottle. Pours a brilliant yellow/gold with a soapy white head that receded quickly. Aroma is skunked, but underneath is a little pale malt and hoppiness. Flavors include light grain, lemon, and grass. Body is light medium. I’ll rerate this if I can get an unskunked bottle.

Tasted on tap. Straw-like hops are evident in the aroma. Pretty basic helles overall.

(1L keg) Dark yellow colored, medium sized yellow head. Lemony aroma with nice hoppy character. Medium bodied. Flavor starts better with some hops and lemony fruits, aftertaste has weird unclean touch with paper and vegetably-yeastiness.

50 cL bottle. Slight skunk aroma when the cap popped. Very slight continuation in the glass, but the main aroma is noble hop and pale malt. Slightly brassy golden color with a vigorous white head that perservered. Medium bodied. Very light carbonation. No skunk. Pale malt sweetness, and a very, very little hop. The aroma is now quite clean, and the flavor clearly reflects grassy hop. Which is how the finish goes. Nice, but light, bitter. Mild fits. Looking forward to the enchiladas. It’s got enough body to stand up to some spice.
