3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at the Estes Park Winter Festival. Pale yellow, with no real head. Bready nose, with some overripe apples and biscuit dough. Sweet and yeasty. Light body, crisp, and clean. This is a simple, pretty well made helles, but lacks complexity or depth.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
At GABF 2015. yellow color, lots of malt, a simple sweetness and a simple beer but they did a good job with it. carbonation is good, and it has a good palate. Good job on a lighter style.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Clear golden body with a white head. Aroma of toasted grain, raw grain, straw, cracker. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/sticky texture, soft carbonation. Light grainy aftertaste along with some grassy hop notes and a bit of fruit (light banana). Just OK.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Falling Rock. Clear golden pour with a dense white head. A fair amount of fruity esters and a lot of grassy hops. Mild bitterness on the finish, but there’s a nice malt character and sweetness. Maybe just a hint of skunk on the finish. Overall, though, it’s pretty nice.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This strikes me as more of a Bohemian Pilsner than a helles but I’m not going to split hairs. It’s golden in the glass, maybe ever so slightly hazed w/ a thic, white head. It has a nice grassy, herbal noble hop character to the nose. It’s fairly full bodied for the style with nice creamy carbonation. This hits all the marks for light lager for me, lots of noble hops, full bodied but not sweet and syrupy. I am into it.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer was awful. There isn’t another way to put it. Light and bland, a weird sour kind of finish. Just off in nearly every way.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
January 29th, 2013 - This beer was a special treat, harkening back both to a Denver landmark - the old Tivoli brewery - and the German Reinheitsgabot, combining the two to produce a pure and purely Denver brew. The idea is neat, and while the resulting brew isn’t the best in the line, it’s not bad. The smell contains touches of graham and saltine crackers, so lots of biscuit and bread notes, but is otherwise a little flat. The flavor is enriched by notes of honey and a little lemon, but it’s almost too light, almost as if this was a ginger ale converted into a beer. Still, that might be close to what these ancestor beers were like, in which case, I support the historical "way-back" reach.
