Bottle. Dated best by 11/22/05. Certainly pours nice. A helles kind of gold with a bit of depth in the glass. Very thin ring of foam left over. Nice blustery German beer smell. Taste is full of those light lager malts with a brush of Vienna, and a clean German hop profile. Not exceptional, but a fine summer brew that sticks to style.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUL 10, 2005
12 oz bottle - poured golden with a white fluffy head. Aroma of sweet caramel malts. Flavor is quite sweet as well. Caramel and some light corn come through. On the palate this is light bodied and very drinkable. A good summer beer and quite true to the style.

thegreenrooster (3570) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 10, 2005
Pour is a very cloudy yellow for a lager. Head is frigging huge! Aroma is a nice malt and hop mix. Flaovir is a citrusy and hop combo. The finish is nice and refreshing. A nice twist to the stayle and quite tasty.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2005
Bottle: Hazy yellow, large white rocky head, nice lacing, soft carbonation.   Soft spicy/fruity nose very similar to the core of a kiwi, but not as sweet.   Tart on the tongue, spicy but not as much as the aroma.   Very light malt profile, a bit spritzy.   Average body and mouthfeel.   Finishes clean, crisp, and somewhat like an extremely weakened saison + gueuze.   Very different for a Helles, not as lagerish as I had expected, but tasty regardless.   Thanks Mike!

frankenkitty (1981) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2005
A golden/amber colored beer with lively effervescence and a creamy, white film for a head. Flowery hop aroma with some lemon and a mild touch of skunk that wasn’t bothersome. Saaz hops? Lightly bitter with a honey-sweetness to round out a very smooth beer.

MrBunn (2588) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2005
This was on sale at Whole Foods for a whopping $3.99 per six pack. Didn’t expect a whole lot and was pleasantly surprised. (That said, I wouldn’t pay $7 or $8 for it.) Pours a light clouded yellow/amber color that changes a lot depending on lighting. Nice foamy head that doesn’t go away right away. Aroma is weak, hops and grass. First sip is malty with apple undertones that give way to hops that could be a bit stronger. All in all, well worth a try at $4...

drywallman (349) - Lake in the Hills, Illinois, USA - JAN 7, 2005
I bought this in July, and didn’t get to drinking it until December. It’s surprisingly still OK. It still pours a minimal head, has a carmelly aroma with a hint of hops. You can taste the malt, but the citrusy hops soon take over. It’s not the best balanced, but this may be due to the extended fermentation I left it alone to do over the months.

DocLock (8601) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2004
Pours turbid gold with minimal white head and floaties. Aroma of malt, hopcit, slight honey. Tastes of hopcit, malt, slight fruit. A decent helles. More complex and balanced than most.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2004
Yellow. Dry, malty, slightly medicinal aroma with notes of cooked veggies and herbal, grassy hops. Nice flavor. Nice maltiness fruitiness, with tropical fruits coming into play on the finish accompanied by a lovely, subtle hop bitterness. Light bodied. Not bad.
