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.

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 Iíd 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.

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."

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Mildly hazy golden color. Thin slightly off-white head. Loose splotches and ropes of lace. Medium body. Crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly sticky texture. Some grainy, bready malt flavors. Hint of pepper. Light bit of citrus. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Something tastes slightly off, not sure what.. But besides that, a pretty solid, easy drinking helles

It is not a bad beer. Pours light in color. Not a favorite style of beer, but I believe the brewery nailed the style. This would be a beer to drink at gatherings - something easy to drink all night. Also, they serve this at some local restaurants, and I would get this over the usual listings of domestics. Score might be too low do to not having enough of this style to compare to, and me preferring darker beers and IPAs.

Normally, this would get a better rating, but Iím not much of a lager fan. And I canít give this as high of a rating as my favorite style of beers (dark ales - stouts). I normally drink Molson Canadian for an "at the bar go to" beer. This was much more full flavored than any typical bar lager. Not a great beer, but would definitely accept if offered to me.
