Good beer. Maybe banana taste in this one. Great tasting new style brew for me. Loved it.

This was a really nice Helles. Mild and sweetish with a finish thick on the tongue.

Bottle from Arvin. Mildly bitter, spicy, honey, lager yeast. Pretty decent for a style I’m not huge on.

nuplastikk (4124) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 21, 2013
12oz shorty bottle. Faint hiss when opened. Just barely carbonated...bad seal job. Hazy and unfiltered, which is counter-intuitive regarding the Helles style. A nice pleasant earthy noble hop aroma. This is a nice countryside Lager, makes me think of Landbier or Kellerbier more than a Helles. Has that green bohemian feel I want in the style, but not the perfect body, mouthfeel. I’m sure this is quite nice on tap, fresh at the brewery.

Finhead (1111) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Hazy, yellow pour with a small white head. It has a malty aroma of barley and bread. The body is light and crisp with lively carbonation. It has a sweet taste with a smooth finish.

12 ounce bottle pours a clear golden yellow color with aromas of burnt grain, caramel, butter and some grass. Flavors follow suit, a basic lager overall.

Garbageman (443) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - MAR 1, 2013
From bottle. Pours a crisp clear amber with medium head. Aroma clean and bready. Taste was a refreshing mild lager with a bite on the back end.

rlpeeler (76) - Bowling Green, Kentucky, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Bottled poured a white medium head that lasts. Light clear amber color. Very carbonated at first it needed to settle. Taste is crisp, clean and balanced. Probably a better beer for summer than mid winter but quite nice as a change of pace.

thedm (4887) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 27, 2012
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very large sized head of foamy white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent weak yellow colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was malty and musty. The semi-flat thick mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish hoppy aftertaste. The thick flavor contained notes of malt. Not one that I would drink again.

Narnad (1416) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - DEC 18, 2012
Pours a clear yellow, tall bubbly white head (very large). Aroma is grainy with a hint of lemon and a faint noble hops nose. Flavor is very pronounced grainy character early, light lemon and some mild grassy hops note. Body is light with a sharp carbonation that adds to the tangy taste from the grain. Overall a pretty good brew. Fits style very well and the grain taste is shown off well.
