On tap at Chestnut Hill location. Clear amber/golden. Thin white head. Very faint nose, maybe a hint of malt/bready. Crisp hop bite, light malt profile, slight corn flavor. Was hoping for more malt/body on this. To me, a true Helles has that increased body.

transparent gold, thin white ring for a head. Nose is very dusty grain, bordering on hay, light honey, really snappy. Flavor is light dust and manure, honey, short finish, not quite as dusty as the nose. Very drinkable, fantastic in fact.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Lancaster location on Memorial Day 2011.
Pours a clean golden color with a good white head and a bit of light lacing on the way down. The nose brings forward some light grainy malt plus a moderate amount of floral hops. The flavor is really quite nice, distributing the flavors of the grain and light floral hopping quite well. Very crisp. Light with good carbonation. Very refreshing. Something I would definitely have again.
Serving type: on-tap

20110314 tap at W-ton (Loadstone). Good looking yellow-gold with tall, lasting, sticky white suds. Looks perfect and inviting. Aroma is fresh, bread, mildly grassy, quite yeasty. Body is medium and amply carbonated to keep it lithe. Slight alcohol presence. Crisp dry finish with little lingering beyond some tasty bready malts. Good stuff.

On tap at Newark and Wilmington Brewery. Lodestone is your standard lager, on the lighter side. Poured a clear, medium copper color with almost no head. Smells sweetand doughy. Tastes of sweet hops with an aftertaste of fruit and a hint of alcohol. Somewhat flat mouthfeel.
