Green hops and citrusy emanations are grounded by a creamy feel…Minty earth tones mesh into a fresh wort aroma…Lacks that crisp Helles punch but still one of their better efforts for a tasting…I thought of subtracting a few points for the Backstreet Boys’ playing in the speakers, but didn’t…Good Lord…

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Standard golden color with an impressive head. Toasty aroma with promised toasty malt flavors. Well-intended sweet citrusy tones, but they don't quite fit. But this is a decent micro lager.
