Tap @ Blind Tiger. Light yellow pour. Some light malt, not too much else. Can be drank, that’s about it.

Draft. Pours a golden body with a white head. Grainy dank malt, a bit musky almost tastes a bit oxidized or stale. Not so good.

Nate (3827) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2009
Sampled on draught at Phoneixville location. Light fruity hop character, mild acetaldehyde but not unpleasant. Good mellow sweetness to it with light hops. Pale golden straw clear with thin white head. Medium-light watery body with high carbonation. Starts with beany hops, crisp pilsner malt and some carbonic bit. Smooth hoppy bitter finish with a bit of acetaldehyde. Nice little Helles with clean after.

sinkr (323) - Odenton, Maryland, USA - MAR 26, 2008
Draft->juice glass (tasting@brewery): Pours a spare, white, but diminishing head that exhibits good lacing atop a clear, light yellow body. Aroma is of caramel and grain, light on the hops, and perhaps some banana in there or at least some frutiness. The body is light, the texture is thin, and there is soft carbonation. Very Germanic, but not really all that tasty (including aroma), nor really pretty to look at.

3fourths (8638) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2008
UPDATED: APR 20, 2013 Draft at Sly Fox. Wet, sloppy malt and grain nose. Slick, wet, thin, grainy corn and sweet wheat flavor, overall quite weak and simple.
