Typical run-of-the mill helles lager. Easy drinking, but nothing special.

Not Bad. Tried this for my kegerator at the recommendation of a friend. A bit foamy on the pour but thins out pretty nice. Goes down really smooth although I did notice a but of a tin taste which but I hope that’s just the keg. All in all not a bad beer but definitely not my first choice. I like my Lagers a bit darker but this would at the very least deserve a second chance.

Clear and light. Fruitiness flavor, goes down easy. Thin head. Lingering aftertaste that doesn’t seem to match

12 ounce bottle into pilsener glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly clear golden straw color with a nice 1-2 finger dense fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big pear, grape, apple, pepper, bread, herbal, floral, grass, and earthy spiciness. Damn nice aromas with good strength, balance, and complexity. Taste of cracker, bready grain, apple, pear, herbal, floral, grass, pepper, light clove, and earthy spiciness. Lightly tart earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of bread, light fruits, herbal, floral, grass, pepper, and earthy spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Nice amount of flavors with good balance; zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with almost zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very excellent Helles lager! Nice amount of flavors with good balance; extremely smooth and crisp to drink. A highly enjoyable offering as expected.

Straw colored pour. Nose is clean and grainy. Taste is English hops with a nice bite. A little tinny, don’t know if it’s the bottle or not. Clean finish.
