COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

ben4321 (3750) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Location: 12 oz bottle from Shop Rite - Hoboken, 3/30/14

Aroma: The nose is crystal malts, German yeast, some dough, and a little grass
Appearance: It pours a clear golden-orange color with a frothy white head
Flavor: The flavor is much the same, clean malty flavor, German yeast, and a grassy hop finish
Palate: The body is light-medium, with an lively carbonation, and a lightly dry finish
Overall Impression: This is a decent offering. It has a decent amount of crispness for a Helles, but isn’t quite as crisp as I wanted. There’s also too much carbonation present. Still though, this beer has more flavor that I expected it to have. Overall, this is a decent beer, but it isn’t great.

bottle - Pours clear gold with a white head. It has a very mild grainy aroma. The flavor has mild hops bitterness and sweet, grainy malt. It’s light bodied, fairly refreshing, and thoroughly... meh. It’s okay I guess.

Bottle to pint. Light gold with lots of bubbles. About a finger of white billowing head. Good retention. Nice hoppy nose. Decent, if tethered, flavor. Biscuit and grass. Gritty, metallic finish. Lawn mowing beer.

From 12oz bottle to shaker. Pour is a grainy gold, thin white head. Nose is very citrusy, light hop, earthy. Taste is light bodied, bitter and sweet. Finishes crisp and sharp. Ok beer, glad to see this brewery try some new things.

arminjewell (5993) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear gold pout with white head, aroma brought notes of grass, biscuit, bread, hints of zesty, earthy hops into a bit of yeast, some grain, hay. Taste is a mix of biscuit, bread, some slight grain, grass, spice notes, some slight honey, finishing fairly dry, clean. Why is this an APA? No idea, drinks like a helles.

BiffNilsson (178) - Perstorp, SWEDEN - MAR 5, 2014
Ljusgul kristallklar vätska med liten snabbt försvinnande krona. Doften är mycket återhållsam. Inget humle helvete här inte. Smaken är krispig och ren men något lätt i kroppen. Ren alesmak med lätt beska. Inte mycket humle i smaken. Lättdrucken och god, men något tråkig.

Capa (1963) - Manama, BAHRAIN - MAR 4, 2014
Clear pale yellow with a white head. Aroma is citrus, round sweet caramel, lemony, a touch of grain. Medium thin, slick body with mild carbonation. Flavor is citrus, a bit lemon, earthy, sweet grains. This is actually pretty good and follows thru on its name however, a hells this is not. A very nice hoppy golden lager (not sure why RB lists this as an APA when Leine says it’s a lager).

yarry (527) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 25, 2014
On a business trip in Toledo, 2/25/2014: From a taster pack, 12fl oz bottle. Pours a light gold with a decent white head. Aromas of hops, and mild grassy notes. Taste is fairly bland, some hoppy notes, backed by some decent maltyness. The balance in this beer is good, but theres just not enough flavour. Palate is soft and smooth but nothing special either.
