3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a golden pale with a little haze and a thin white head. Aroma is light toasty malt, bready with biscuit and toffee. Flavor is clean lots of malt just like aroma would suggest toasty malt and more biscuit comes through, there is light hop character but not much. Overall I like the toasted malt flavor that is going on in this beer it is refreshing and drinkable, this is my first helles so I’m not sure how to style this brew is but it is not bad either way.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not a big fan of this one, though I made the mistake of drinking this beer in the same session as a Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold... seems, in retrospect, an unfair pairing. This beer is weak by comparison, overly sweet, lacking body and without a distinguishing hop bite.

12 oz bottle pours golden with a white head. Aroma of malt, grass and yeast. Taste of sweet malt and a bit of bitterness.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft. Poured a clear pale gold with a medium-sized head that dissipated quickly. Aroma and flavor were bready malt, some grassy hops. Light mouthfeel. Not terribly memorable.

Bottle. Golden color with a medium head. Aroma is much like an American pale lager. Taste, also like an American lager, a good American lager.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled as "Original Lager". This beer pours a clear golden color with a medium thin and fizzy white head that burns away steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of bready malt and mild hops. Light body with flavors of sweet malt and grassy hops. The finish is short and mildy bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Average overall.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours clear and golden with a small head. Not a huge aroma for this one. It has a moderately bitter taste that sticks with you for a while.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Had on tap.
Appearance is a slightly hazy dark gold with a tiny wispy head.
Picked up a slightly floral hop note from the smell but not really much else.
Flavor was somewhat sweet with a light bready grain. A little bit of floral hops but just a very light bitterness. Just not a whole lot going on.
Overall I was a little disappointed with this beer. All the flavors were somewhat muted and it was really boring. Not sure I would seek out again.
