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.

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

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 (413) - 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 (5099) - 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.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Bottle. Aroma has notes of citrus hops and cereal malts. Medium gold hue with an average foamy white head that mostly diminished and left some lace. Flavor is medium sweet and lightly bitter. Palate is light bodied and watery with average carbonation. Overall a very drinkable brew that was refreshing. Decent.

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

PhillyBeer2112 (2522) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2014
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 (8214) - 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 (1130) - 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.
