3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Haven’t tried many Helles, but the ones I have so far were kind of watery and bland. Summer Helles had some solid sweet malty flavor and was very crisp, a surprisingly good beer that I think just about anyone would enjoy. Didn’t really find much bitterness to it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle from Warehouse or Five Points, summer 2014. Golden pour under a small off-white head, mild lacing. Grainy aroma, hay, straw, a bit of grass, a wisp of lemon. Bland flavor, but relatively inoffensive, malty, grainy, doughy pale malts, a bit of lemon, a touch sweet. Not bad.

Bottle, found in the fridge at a friends Christmas party (score!). Medium yellow gold, average white head. Grainy aroma, a touch of bready yeast. Same on the palate, finishing with a whiff of green hop character.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Smells of pissy hay and some bitter essence. Appearance is light, with decent head. Taste is fairly neutral... a bit of odd bready butter, but not bad. Boy, is this one smooth.. Were it not for that off taste, a 5/5 in palate. Wouldn’t go out of my way for it, but would drink again.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very light yellow color, some small head. Very thin body and flavor, a little grassy but barely that. Finishes light, swift, easy to forget. Added it to a chili we were making, but I can’t imagine that it will improve the chili much. Bottle.

Pours a light watery yellow. Aroma is slightly metallic with a faint malt nose. Taste is clean, crisp and dry. An odd buttery flavor on the palate with a bitterness that dissipates quickly. Minor grass flavor and easy drinking beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very clear yellow pour with barely visible wisps of clearish head. Very sweet and grainy on both the nose and flavor, but not syrupy sweet. More profound flavor than a bud or genny cream. Ever so slight pils hop bit on the finish. Decent alternate for the bmc crowd, but not something I want to drink again.
