12oz purchased at the Coop tonight poured into my small weizen glass. Very short lasting 1 finger head left behind spotty lace.. atop a light golden brew.. very clear. Grainy pale malts.. very clean.. this is one of the good times where less is more... I love a good helles... and this is a good one for sure. Malty .. very restrained bitterness and just the slightest breath of spicy/grassy hop flavor... smooth lite/medium body with just enough carbonation... as it warms, it sweetens.. but not in a bad way.. the malts come to the front as they should. This is not a Dortmunder .. and nobody should think otherwise.

ciocanelu (199) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - AUG 23, 2015
Clear pale color with decent head. Clean, grainy aroma with a hint of sweetness. Taste is also a bit on the sweet side but gets more balanced to the finish. Decent but a bit too sweet for my taste.

chinchill (3129) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 23, 2015
Light hop aroma but moderate and herbal-earthy hop flavor. Light body with medium-high carbonation. Lacks balance and too earthy, but not bad anyway.

Bottle - small foamy head, pale straw color, sweet corn malt aroma and flavor, mild hop bite at the end, mildly dry finish, pretty much half a step up from your standard pale lager ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

the aroma is malty and herbal with some hints of grain and hay... the taste is clear and thirst quenching, malty with smooth hoppy bitterness and some notes of herbs and grain... dry and bitter aftertaste...
