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.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours with a very clear gold body and a lasting white head. Aroma is very grainy and "raw", herbal and earthy hops, and a slight hint of leather. Taste is sweet, fruity and grainy. Dry and light. Good helles!

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.

Sampled on tap at Taps on 7/10/2010 from a 2 oz sampler. This helles pours a light gold color from the tap. The aroma is caramel, biscuty, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied helles. The malts are fruity and sweet, with a hint of bready malts. The hops are herbal. Nice balance. Nice summer bird. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
