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

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2010 This is a light, easy to drink beer, like a Bud Light but cleaner tasting. Avail in cans and bottles.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at BB’s in St. Louis. From a tap marked "Schlafly Summer Lager." Pours a clear gold with plenty of visible carbonation and a small white head. Aroma of pale malts, herbal hops, sweet crackers, straw, and grains. Flavor follows suit pretty closely, maybe a touch of honey and grass along with the other notes. Light-bodied with crisp carbonation. Cold, crisp, refreshing- good summer lager, as advertised.
