3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
December 28th, 2011 - Three beers in and practically foaming at the mouth at the idea of having a brewery very close to home, I proceeded down the light from light to dark to take in Lone Tree Brewing’s Mountain Mama Helles. Although it might be hindered by the strictures of a tasting glass, the smell is muted, and what aroma I can detect is primarily composed of apple juice and a regular wheat aroma, light and sort of dispassionate. The palate is thick and hale, communicating light flavors of apple (like the smell) with a basic wheat beer profile (like the aroma.) The general contours of the taste seem a little flat, but perk up a bit with the introduction of a long aftertaste featuring the sour peal of green apple. It’s a light beer, no doubt about it, and a find intermediate between the upcoming dark brews and the lighter, paler offerings from earlier, but it doesn’t stand out very much. Although it’s not a compliment, I am more excited for the next beer, and less enthusiastic about dwelling on the Mountain Mama Helles.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
draft. clear gold, small white head, no lasting retention. neutral cereal grain and sweet corn nose; little to no hop or yeast presence in the aroma. medium body, which is quite thick for a helles - the mouthfeel is syrupy and a bit goopy, far too thick and round, and the low carbonation doesn’t help either. makes the experience almost sludgy. flavor is mild neutral pale malt (honey, biscuits, crackers, etc.). light transparent and flavorless hop bitterness late.
