COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Munich Style Helles. Golden and medium-bodied, it has a fresh noble hop character and lightly toasted malt flavor. This classic summer time lager is made for the warm, lazy days of Summer in America’s heartland.

unclemattie (4165) - Georgia, USA - OCT 28, 2010
12oz bottle, baby-blue colored label. Clear and very bright yellow. Malted cereal aroma. Lots of straw in the nose. Light pale malts flavor, a touch of green barley and grass. Finishes with a touch of lemon zest. Thin bodied but very flavorful. This is a the ultimate Summer Brew! Noticeably different from the Kölsch and the Pilsener. Bottled on 07_26_2009

unclemike (2222) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - SEP 7, 2010
Grassy aroma with some lemon. Golden wheat appearance with a small white head. Flavor is full of grass and some lemon as well. Palate is not distinct, small hop presence. Aright, but nothing to call home about.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 22, 2010
12 bottle, about a month old 2010 bottling, labeled Helles Style Summery Lager: Pours a clear, pale yellow with a large bubbled, quickly diminishing starchy white head that is fed by and large handful of slow tiny bubbles. Grassy aroma, with lightly floral straw and orange melon rind. Lively mouthfeel without being fizzy - well done! Flavours are light and fresh - cereal malts, with just a hint of toast. This beer goes very well with the hellasious humidity that is St. Louis in the summer - just make sure it is super fresh (a month is pushing it) and nicely chilled! An incredibly tough style to bottle and get to market fresh - high praise to the brewers!

Drake (8339) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 18, 2010
12 ounce bottle courtesy of phaleslu. Thanks! Bottled 7/13/10. Pours a clear pale yellow color with a medium frothy offwhite head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet malts with a bit of grassiness. The taste is grassy hops with a sweet malty finish. Thin-medium bodied. Seems fairly generic.

RobertDale (3408) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - AUG 6, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear yellow with average white head. Aroma is sweet with florals. Tastes honey sweet with just a touch of hops. Refreshing but very light.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2010 This is a light, easy to drink beer, like a Bud Light but cleaner tasting. Avail in cans and bottles. Blueberry Hill Schlafly Bottleworks. May 2010. Cicero’s. Aug 2010.

golden yellow; creamy head; actually nice lacing; a bit watery; lemon aftertaste; It is what it is.

Dogbrick (7970) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 18, 2010
Sample at Bigelo’s Bistro in Edwardsville, IL. The beer is a clear pale yellow color with a medium white head that recedes slowly. Thin sheet of lacing on the glass. Bready malt and mild hops in the nose. Light and clean body with flavors of biscuity malt, grain, hops and some fruit. The finish is malty with a short mildly hopped aftertaste. Average overall.

beernbourbon (1297) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUN 17, 2010
Tap. Mostly clear straw with small white head. Aroma is light malt and faint floral hop. Easy drinking with a light biscuit malt finish. Also notes of yeast. Pretty standard lager.

EithCubes (4836) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 12, 2010
Bottled 05/21/2010. Dusty yeast nose, lovely bright pale malt (and possibly some Munich, though the color disagrees) with a lot of spring in its step. Very bright yellow pour, clear and clean with a soapy white head. Taste is lightly sweet malt with sharp mineral notes and restrained noble hops. Very faint toasty malt along with the pale citrus, and a light chalky note toward the back. Medium body comes off as light as well. Refreshing and surprisingly good, has enough balance and friendliness for me to want to drink a sixer or two of this over a week.
