3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap: cloudy, goldenrod color with a thin, white skin spread across the top. Aroma is full of grains, mild must, lemon-lime zest, & some finishing lager yeast. Decent, but not quite as much breaded maltiness as I’d like from the style. Taste is very fresh & crisp with lightly metallic graininess, huge bread chunks & toasty malt (there it is!) with a lemon-lime zest finish. Yeast becomes more apparent in the aftertaste, lasting as a mild mouth coating. Not the greatest helles lager ever, but better than the ratings indicate, methinks.

On tap at the Mackinac Island Draught House. Pours a clear gold with a near white head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma is mild with notes of hay, bread and a bit of biscuit. Flavor is mild with hay and grain and a bit of grass in the finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle from my Secret Santa, umich03jm. Thanks man! Pours a hazed golden with a thick, rocky white head. Aroma of mild citrus, grain, fresh bread. Flavor is crisp, mild citrus and grain notes. Lively carbonation, light bodied. Finish is fairly abrupt. It’s fine. Nothing particularly special.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured into an English pint glass. Mellow gold colour with a thin off-coloured white head that fades fast. First sip, lots of barley and almost a corn flavour. Kind of a grassy flavour to it as well. Medium sweetness, mild bitterness. Palate is very average with a thin texture.Too much carbonation. Overall, not a very good beer. I would not recommend it to anyone.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at home. Fizzy, high carbonation. No lacing. Bubbly head doesn't stay. Yellow and a little cloudy. Smells like a Stroh's. Faint taste of piney medicine. Not very good.

I wazs expecting a good helles bier. It waxs adequate but hardly stands up well compared to the helles bier of Munich. The only adjective I can use ito describe the taste is "thin."
