4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear but slightly hazy gold color with a thin white head that disappears rather quickly. Aroma of corn and a touch of hops. Thin bodied, balanced between malt and hops. Finishes the same as the taste. Makes me think of a pre-prohibition lager. Not awful, but certainly not the best.

Bottle. Corn, hop, malt, citrus. Balanced. Light texture. Medium duration. Nothing spectacular.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent lighter gold with lively carbonation and thin white head that quickly dissipates into very thin lacing. Smells doughy and pleasantly skunky with hop notes. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. This would be a 3.0, but it became less enjoyable as it warmed (and I drank it fairly quickly).

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle from jdb288. Some sediment was loosened and a hazy pour resulted. This is golden and fizzy. A steady white head that leaves just a little lacing. Soft pale malts and yeast hit the nose first. Just the lightest hint of fruit. Dry Noble hops are tasted first along with something like sorghum that is light. A little cereal and some sourness with grass. Malts and those hops carry this.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden body, medium sized white head, spotty lacing. Grass, biscuit, and just a touch of citric hops. Medium to light bodied, smooth carbonation, refreshing finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle to a glass shaker. Pours a light yellow with a lot of bubbly. White head that dissipates quickly. Kinda watery bread flavor, no hopiness to it. Meh.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice clear golden body with a big white head that had some retention and a little bit of lacing. A nice aroma if bread malts and a slight hint of grass hops. Flavor was mostly bread malts. It was certainly one dimensional but it certainly enjoyable. A crisp finish and the beer had a good mouth feel.
