krumbum (523) - truckee, California, USA - JUL 28, 2013
A very clear straw pale beer with doughy scents. It is thin malty smooth a little more malty then necessary. Palate is left with a sos so tasting malty residue.

prawlie (1170) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2013
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.

Onionkid (366) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - OCT 20, 2012
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.

Aroma is grassy hops and grainy malts. The flavor is malts, beery hops, a hint of fruit and a dryish finish.

Ibrew2or3 (7046) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 1, 2012
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.

jgb9348 (4810) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 19, 2012
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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5039) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 19, 2012
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.
