2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light malty aroma. Golden yellow, small head. Sweetness present. Lacking maltiness. Hops bitterness also present more than I would prefer in a Helles. Slight grain. Light medium body. Not crisp the way it shoud be. Not bright enough. Hops were too much, overpowering. Felt heavy. Did not like this beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Blue Palms. Pours with a clear golden body and a small white head. Aroma is sweet, grainy, caramel, corn and noble hops. Taste is sweet (too sweet if you ask me), grainy, fruit and buttery. Lively bubbles. Non-offensive, but boring and a bit too sweet.

A bit more hops than expected. Well made, but doesn’t escape what you think of when someone hands you a lager. Aroma has a distinct buttery-ness to it. There is a little bit going on with the flavor of this one, but still "meh".

It’s ok, had it at Lost Souls, Downtown, LA - Happy hour.
It was worth the happy hour price, but that’s about it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden light pour. No head really. Lots of grass and lots and lots of malt. All over. One dimensional. Somehow it’s definitely drinkable.
