2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.
