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.

Nice crisp citrus taste. Seems like its a brew that I could enjoy year around.. but you wouldn’t be catching me having a half case of these

Decent lager, crackery dry malts, floral and herbal hops, a little citrus to boot. Overall crisp and nice to drink. Pale golden, lightly cloudy, foamy head. Mostly balanced.

Drake (7945) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2014
12 ounce bottle, 12/4/13. Pours a clear golden color with a thin fizzy off-white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of doughy malts and grassy hops. The taste is pale bready malts, mild grassy hops. Thin bodied, high carbonation, boring.

Beerathon (954) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2013
I’ve heard such good things about this beer, but alas I feel let down. Too much lager skunk/funk going on for my liking. Still very crisp and clean with moderate hop profile. Better than a normal lager, but not that good.

Got to say that I was pleasantly surprised by this one. Decent aroma. The malt has a smooth bread taste that isn’t too sweet and isn’t too heavy. The hops create a nice fruit balance. The Citra and Centennial hops really shine by imparting a citrus taste that is even and refreshing. I’d happily have one of these, again.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2014 Poured from a 12oz brown bottle into a nucleated pint glass. Crystal-clear golden colour with deep sudsy white foam, long-lasting with lace. Definite American hops aromas right away: grapefruit, pine sap, black currants, Hoppier than a classic Helles lager, bigger and more complex by far than I expected from a Miller subsidiary. Nice grainy, candy-sweet pils malt base underneath, hints of black pepper and vanilla, ever so slight DMS which is true-to-style. Light body, smooth carbonation, well-rounded mouthfeel, lingering bittersweet aftertaste which eventually finishes with a dry hoppy snap. Crisp and refreshing, but with unexpected layers. Wow, this is surprisingly tasty beer, go Leinies!

A pint at Rebos. Very good a drinkable beer. Has a hint of hoppiness but is very smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

penguinfinity (90) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle. Smell is mild, pours golden, fully transparent with a little white head that dissipates into a lace. Taste is pretty mild for a hoppy beer. Overall a little better than average.

Tap at the bar in Rothschild wi. Pours light amber with lasting off white head. Very citrusy. Nice IPA out of Minnesota, perhaps my favoring linenkugela beers ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

burg326 (3243) - Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Poured a clear golden color from the bottle with aromas of hay, malt, light hops and and a touch of toast. Flavors are the same light lemony hops in the flavor this beer works if in a pinch.
