3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Jacks in San Francisco. Golden, flat, little head. Smooth hops, not pils, German like. Hoppy and zest aroma (with a hint of urine!). Looks bad, smells bad, tastes nice! Slips down nicely.

Bottle. Aroma is grassy, malty and hoppy. Taste is similar and overall watery. Leaves a sweet film on the lips. Overall an above average beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle pours crystal clear deep gold with thin near white head. The aroma offers up a nice sweet breadiness, clean fresh malt graininess and gently flowing into thin streams of floral to sort of spicy hops. The taste is both lively with carbonation and hops as well as grounded by pleasing malts, grainy malts and a bready note or two. The hops are modest in strength and seem to be nearly equal in bitterness and flavor hoppiness with notes of spicy and floral hops. Darn nice Helles.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crisp, golden coloured body with a light copper glow with some orange highlights and a nice, one centimetre tall slightly off-white head. Aroma of pale malt, light caster sugars, a touch of citrus and some very light low a.a. german hops. Medium-bodied; Nice complex grassy and herbal flavoured hops up front with a good but pungent malt presence, some alcohol flavours soon afterwards and a touch of citrus. Aftertaste is relatively complex, for the style it shows some good citrus twangs, a touch of earthiness and some subdued alcohol flavours on the end. Overall, a nice helles with some good flavours and a nice crisp finish. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Tustin, California on 03-February-2012 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 19-February-2012.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not one of my favorite styles but this one was really well done. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy apricot color with a medium sized foamy yellow-white head that left good lacing. The aroma was tangy and citric and a touch sour. The flavor was tangy and sweetish with notes of citrus, grass and a hint of perfume with a light bready undertone. the finish was long, tangy, sweetish and nicely hoppy. Medium body and smooth. Pretty good for what it is.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, purchased at Sudwerk. One of the very few domestic Helles renditions I can think of that really nails the style. Pours a deep golden color, crystal clear, with a fine-bubbled white head (nicely retained, good lacing). A modestly rounded Pils malt character in the aroma; very clean; a quiet noble spicy and mineral hop character. Perfect mouthfeel: medium-light body, a pillowy carbonation that’s lively but not sharp; toasty Pils malt, possibly a light DMS character (I’m not particularly sensitive to it), but mostly assertive, delicious Pils malt, clean fermentation, and just enough noble hop character to balance things; beautifully done. Really impressed by pretty much everything I’ve had from Sudwerk’s core line. Medium-length, toasty finish: Pils malt, with a light mineral bitterness.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
355ml bottle. Pours golden to orange with very gentle bubbles and some head, a very small amount of which hangs around. The nose is not what I expected - sultanas and bran, rather than a crisp lemon note. The taste is more of the bran, some grapes and then the bran returns. The palate starts fairly big but it falls off a cliff a bit too early and if this is a helles, it still cloys a bit if I’m being honest. Overall, more interesting than good, I’m afraid!
