Tap at FWIBF. (Last taste of the day. Congrats to bringing a TON of beer) Pours a light blond with big white head. Aroma is non-existent with some yogurt. Taste is nothing to write home about. Bland and slight butter.

Tap at the Brea location. Clear pale yellow pour. Boring as all hell, but not offensive in any way. Just is what it is. Style thing, and it’s not my style.

On tap at the Brea location. It pours a clear golden body and a small white head. The aroma is quite weak, with a little malts and some pine cones and pears. Soft on the palate, dry, with flavors of pale malts, hay, grass and some bitterness and fruits. Dry finish. Sure decent, but not very interesting. 130812

gold. Very quiet aroma? Tastes more like a cream ale  thick body. More butter than hops soapy.

I had this on tap at Tustin Brewing company’s 15th Anniversary party. A golden pour with bready, malty flavors. It’s an easy drinker.

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 8, 2011
A: The pour is sort of dark for a Helles. Amber in color with a finger of white head. S: Smells is pretty light, I must say. Some decent enough bread and floral hop aromas and certainly some lager yeast is there. T: The flavor is mostly bread with a touch of sugar and corn syrup. Some floral and maybe earthy hop notes and a minimal bitterness. Pretty clean, though. M: The body is light to medium with a moderate carbonation. D: Pretty well done, especially for Taps. Maybe not a true Helles, but not bad at all.

had a 1/2 glass after a really spicy meal and boy did this taste good. I may have to try it again without that to see if it remains as good. just good light roasted malt taste. good carbonation. poured a lovely yellow.
