Our newest year round beer. A true German Helles brewed with five American hops. Crisp and refreshing Helles beer meets pleasant citrus hop character from Citra, Simcoe, Cluster, Centennial, and Chinook hops.

(12oz bottle, courtesy of Errl) Pours a clear pale yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of lemon, grain, grass, and orange. Flavor of toasted grain, grass, lemon, and earthiness.

The color is a clear yellow with a large white head that fades rapidly, and the aroma blends corn’ pale malts, and citrus hops. The taste is slightly sour and slightly bitter, and the palate fuses a soft carbonation, medium-light body, slick texture, and an abrupt finish.

Pours a nice 1.5 inch head. Clear amber color, looks like a sparkling cider. I detect no malt presence, with a crisp hop finish. Cannot isolate hops. As a matter of fact, tastes just like a Heineken, which is a lager.

Great tasting Helles, I love the Centennial - Citra combo! Nice crisp flavor and after taste, dry enough to want another drink

The date on the bottle says "May 26, 2014." I poured this into a pilsener as the brewer believes this to be a Munich Helles Lager. I’m unsure why it is labeled an APA on here. No worries, here goes. The appearance was a nice crisp clear golden color with rapid carbonation filling a two finger white foamy head that dissipates at a nice pace. There’s a fair amount of bubbles within the head and the lacing clings softly in a slight spider web sort of way. The smell tries to have some slight bitter yet crisp spicy hops but for the most part they’re pretty subdued and end up letting a fair amount of earthy malts invade the aroma. The taste is actually quite balanced between crisp spicy hops to the earthy malts. There isn’t any aftertaste but there is a quick dry finish. On the palate, it sits pretty light and does show a nice sessionable aspect about it. The carbonation seems good for a Munich Helles Lager. Overall, not a bad beer, but this is no where close to an American Pale Ale. Also, as a Munich Helles Lager, it also seems a bit under sweetened. Is this a cross between the two? Perhaps and still worthy of having during Summer sessions whatever this beer tries to be.

12oz bottle. A nice golden color with a one finger head. Not much aroma coming from it. Slightly hoppy aroma I guess. Taste is slightly hoppy and watered down. Ends bitter. Not a huge fan.

Great aroma although I'm getting over a cold so I can't get specific. Anyway, the taste is a nice hoppy bite and it gets a nice bitter flavor that increases for the initial second on the palate and then calms to a nice smooth palate. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This would act as a decent pool-side beer, but as far as everything else is concerned, skip it.
