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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Arvin. Mildly bitter, spicy, honey, lager yeast. Pretty decent for a style I’m not huge on.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
