2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft in Manchester, CT. The beer’s name was "Cold as Helles", but I will place it here. Crisp, slightly sweet and grassy nose. Transparent yellow/orange golden color with dissipating yellowish head. Grassy, slightly hoppy middle. Creamy and grainy to finish. A fair representation of the style. I detect sort of a milky flavor/sensation. The more I drink, the more this tastes like a cheap macro.

I am very saddened to see how much John Harvard’s has fallen off in their beer in the last 6 months or so. I speak with only knowledge of the Wayne, PA location, but their beers aren’t as good as they used to be. The food is still great, but I usually go to Iron Hill or GLI or Sly Fox of Victory these days.

Springfield, PA - The Saaz hops is what makes this beer. Gives it a crisp aftertaste.

Framingham, MA - Has a golden color and malted smell. Taste is of the pilsner malt and finished with a slight crisp bitterness. Overall I enjoyed this beer due to the fact that I like pilsners.

Draft in Pittsburgh, PA. Clear dark straw. Large frothy white head. Modest carbonation. Healthy toasted bread crust malts and floral hop balance. Gentle malt sweetness. Crisp and clean finish. Easy drinking. A good stab at a sometimes boring style.
