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.

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