TheEnemy (564) - Chicago, USA - JAN 8, 2007
2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear, effervescent rather pale straw-yellow; light-colored even for a helles. Aroma is bready & doughy with a clover and a whiff of alcohol. Flavor is crisp & clean mild-to-medium hop bitterness, bread dough, honey and grassy hay. Thinnish but tingly palate. Probably a better beer than my final score would suggest -- indeed, there wasn’t anything particularly offensive about it -- but it’s a little boring even by Helles standards.
