Can poured a clear light yellow hue w/ a large fizzy white diminishing head. Big bready aroma. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish. Tastes are bread, lemon, and cream-of-wheat. Light bodied, lively carbonation and creamy mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Herbicles69 (57) - Parker, Colorado, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Came from a can poured into a pint glass. It's like a better version of COORS. Nice frothy head that settles quickly. Light body, a little bit of citrus tone with just enough hops to make the bitterness nice and subtle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the brewery. Pour is clear straw colored with a small white head. Doughy, grassy, floral, grassy, lightly fruity, biscuity, and yeasty aroma. Taste is light and airy - floral, grassy, biscuit, straw, a touch of green apple and spice, dough, and bread. Light body with crisp carbonation. Easy drinking helles, perfect for summer.

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.

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.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2012 Tap @ Lone Tree. A touch hazy, yellow/golden appearance with a white head. Light fruity (apple/banana), sweet straw malty, grassy aroma. Pretty sweet pale malty, earthy, light sweet fruity flavor. Bleh.
