2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle. Very very light golden, almost straw colored body with descent white head. Sweet almost fruity aroma, pretty inviting actually. The flavor is a bit off, in multiple ways. I can;t even really put my finger on it... just weird. Light bodied with low carbonation. Overall: not horrible, but nothing I would consider revisiting.

Very decent overall. Clean, crisp. Light on the hops and malts. Slight roasted flavors. Nothing outrageous with this, but solid. I had it for $5, which might be a bit pricey. But a six pack for under $10 would work. Nice summer type beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Golden beer with a bright white head that quickly settles into a 1/4 inch cover. The aroma is quite subtle, but hints at fresh mown grass. The beer drinks with a nice fruity side, with a nicely balanced side note of a hoppy finish. I’m pleasantly surprised. (#3954, 7/25/2010)

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Super sweet nose with light perfume and floral notes. Gradient golden body with a sudsy beige head. Taste is somewhat malty and crisp, good feel from the carbonation, sweet floral end and finish, a little cracker in the after to balance out the citrus in the main body. Light body edges medium, is tart with low bitterness. A little too sweet, and there’s something a bit off here, but no significant brewing flaws to my threshold and I enjoyed!

A little tart on the tongue; this isn’t as smooth as some other Helles I’ve tasted. It could be likable, but isn’t so much my thing. It is the first beer from this brewer that I’ve tasted and if my 2nd isn’t any more likable than this I won’t keep trying them.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour Form a 12 oz bottle. Deep gold color with a white head that soon dissipates. Pleasant aroma of malt and flowery hops. Flavor is an exceptionally good balance of sweet light malts with a distinctive hops bitterness. Fine finish with an excellent hops smack on the back of the tongue and lingering, pleasant, bitterness. Good mouthfeel with active carbonation. I picked up a 6 pack of this while passing through Cincinnati recently. A very good, very solid brew. Will have to look for it here in Michigan.
