UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 smell is sweet, almost like bubble gum! Very mild beer...not as hoppy as you would think...hardly at all! Malty even..but quite mild...picks up slight bitterness with warmth.. x2

Streak (15) - - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle. Tasted 01/31014. I personally did not like this beer. It poured nice and the aroma was pleasant. But the flavor was, to me, very bland and unexciting. I would not get it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone Suckas! :-)

Bierkrug (2131) - Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2014 330 ml bottle in Pompano Beach, FLA. Pours a amber orange with a light white head. Aroma is pine and citrus. Taste is pine citrus and spices. Palate is smooth. Not much of a Helles in there at all other than the name. But a fine APA I think it is.

2oz sample at International Great Beer Expo (Meadowlands). Pours golden in color with a small white head. Aroma is herbal, citrus hops, and slightly yeasty. Taste of sweet grains and a light citrus hop profile.

Light and malty, a bit sweet. Caramel and nuts, hints of citrus zest. Rolling finish with a bit of hops. Not bad.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 13, 2014
12 oz. bottle at a friend’s party. It’s a clear, pale golden color with a white head and some visible carbonation bubbles. Nothing surprising about this one- very mild hop character, pale malts, and a little fruitiness, as well. But also nothing that seemed off for the style. Pretty fresh and satisfying, actually. Light-bodied, with a clean, crisp mouthfeel and moderate to medium carbonation. For this brewery, you could do a lot worse.

akoeninger (397) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Golden and clear some white head and lacing. Grassy aroma and taste with some bitterness. Some sweetness too. Not terribly bland, but also disappointed that the Citra hops don't make more of an impact. Still smooth and drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear golden with aromas of grass and bread. Has some sweetness with a little hoppiness. Refreshing, every day beer.

heemer77 (5096) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Bottle. deep amber orange colored body with a light white head. Nose is toast and almonds. A touch of hay. This tastes of nutty almonds with the shells. There is a hay like background with notes of apple core in the finish. This is actually pretty decent with just enough bite to make it interesting.
