Reviewed from notes. This was on tap and served in a pint glass. The appearance had a hazy light colored brown. The smell had some bready/caramel malts in a roasty sort of way. The taste was somewhat sweet and had a long sweet aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a decent sessionable aspect about it. Overall, this was a good Munich Helles Lager worthy of having again.

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Clean pale malty base, with very low bitterness, hints of grain, and a relatively clean finish. Not bad.

ben4321 (3916) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 10/5/12

Aroma: This beer has a nose of light grass, some malts, and some yeast
Appearance: This one pours a clear almost watery, white wine looking type of color
Flavor: The flavor has a clean, light sweetness and some light hops as well for a good balanced flavor
Palate: The body is pretty light, it has a smooth feel on the mouth, and average carbonation
Overall Impression: I can’t imagine ever really craving this, or wanting to order one again with so many more interesting offerings on the menu, but I thought this was a pretty solid light ale.

Draft sample. Poured hazy golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate grassy hop and soft malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium balanced flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.
