3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Was labeled "Unfiltered Heles" which I’m assuming is the same thing. Hazy golden with a large white head. Bready malts, light earthy hop spice, and some sweet malts. Flavor is much the same with a little grass, too. Nice crisp and lightly dry finish. Good beer. (Philadelphia location)

On tap, Philadelphia location. Pours a bright light gold with a small wispy white head. Minimal pale malt nose with just the lightest hint of hops, very clean nose. The flavor is light as well, with some very light floral hops. Very clean, some bready pale maltiness, finishes with a nice crispness. Mouthfeel is light bodied with fizzy carbonation, nicely crisp. Pretty nice Helles, no flaws.
