Slight biscuity/grainy aroma. Dark golden color with nice head and carbonation. Slight biscuity taste with just a slight hop presence. Great all around drinking beer.

Love this beer. One of the best lagers I have ever had. Crisp and clean, yet very full bodied. I will look for this again.

This is a great example of a Helles Lager. Great beer to introduce people to craft beer.

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."

Aroma is strong with plenty of fruity tones and an undertone of yeast, slightly sweet. It pours a clear yellowish amber with a thick, if not persistent, cream-white head. Flavor is malty, yeasty and fruity with a touch of sweetness and a hint of hops. Texture is very smooth yet quite fizzy, leaving behind a nice tingle.

A nice session beer well balanced and pleasing. Much better served in a glass than straight out of the bottle, resist the urge to skip this step. Once this beer breathes and warms a little it mellows significantly and becomes tremendous.

On tap at the Michigan Fall Beer Fest. Don’t remember it too much. Should have taken more notes.

12 oz bottle. Pours just a touch on the pale side of golden, lightly hazy, with a white head. Honey biscuit aroma. Flavor is also pretty biscuity with honey, slightly toasty, with caramel hints. Simple, but tasty.

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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy golden honey coloured body with a pungent glow and a very nice frothy off-white head with larger bubbles - great looking, for sure. Aroma of fresh pale malt, lemons, coriander seed and a bunch of cardboard - not much else. Light-bodied; Sharp lemon and acidic flavour up front with a mild sweetness, a ton of sour lemon juice taste and some very mild tastes. Aftertaste shows the odd combination of lemons and light malt with very little else. Overall, an interesting beer - not horrible, but not showing the best characteristics of the style - light and citrusey for sure. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Merchant’s in Dearborn, Michigan on 30-July-2010 sampled at home in Washington on 14-April-2011.
