On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a clear blonde with a small white head. Nose brings out herbal notes and light earthiness. Flavour is clean, with herbal and grassy notes. Drinkable enough, but pretty boring. Meh.

reebtogi (4489) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 1, 2015
Pint on tap at Beer Revolution’s Edmonton location pours a pale straw color with a small white head leaving no lacing on the glass. Aroma is corn, grass and grains. Taste is a grassy and spicy hop bitterness with a corn malty sweetness. Light bodied with decent carbonation. Clean finish. A pretty decent representation of the style and worth trying at least once.

PhillyCraft (3575) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Draft, pours clear golden with medium, frothy, white head. Aromas and flavor are corn, lager, and slightly toasty Pilsner malt. Very straightforward for a helles lager. A little bit of spice in the finish but mostly easy going german style.

Masterkush7 (575) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 16, 2014
Bottle... Poured crystal clear, pale golden with a thin, white head with little retention. Pretty standard Helles which is all I can ask for. Malty and sweet. Bread-like cereal grains, mild citrus zest and faint hoppiness with a clean, sourdough grain finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aquilo (559) - Berkeley, California, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Very pale with no head, and lots of fizz. Looks a lot like a ginger ale. Smell is hay, cereal, and a bit of skunk. Flavor is a little bit sweet. Very refreshing. This beer is a mixed bag, but overall very drinkable.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle:   Straw and hay, even a touch of wheatiness.   Mild sweetness, crisp.   Very clean.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Even feels a bit zesty.   Clean too.   Lingering straw, hay, and grass.   Very light sweetness, maybe even a touch of lemon.   Another great lager from Ninkasi!
