Acidic, sweet aroma. Appearance is a crystal clear golden color with poor head retention. Flavor has notes of cracker, bread and is acidic. Hop bitterness balances the sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Overall, it's too acidic. Maybe too much acidulated malt? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a beer to go. Soupy, nice foam, lacong, crystal clear, everything you would expect from Helles lager. I have 7-8 different types of beer and this ine is always in the fridge.

HoppityHop (197) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Nice example of the style. Flavor is biscuits and lemons, with almost no hop presence. Golden in color with a slightly malty aroma. The low carbonation makes it quite easy to drink. Great beer to have with pizza or a burger. You can have your double imperial black Belgian session all day IPA.....but I’ll take a beer like this, any day.

Ernest (7241) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 23, 2015
Can (BB Feb, 2016). Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, husks), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), with a note of soap. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Rather thin, watery, and rough-malted. Drinkable but not very good.
