HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2012
12oz very cool retro-WW2 label. Pale clear yellow with a decent-sized fizzy/foamy white head, not a lot of bubbling. Honey and heather with a fair amount of sharp grassiness, no corn or paper - bit of biscuit malt too. Tastes of lemon grass and honey, no alcohol, undertone of light cereal grain - not a go-to style for me, but crack this in a can and I would buy them during the summer as a low-intensity maintenance quencher. Chewy, decent body, strong carbonation yet soft on the palate - quick-finishing with a dry, grassy aftertaste, ultimately not all that sweet.

7/9/10. 12oz bottle into a pint glass. The pour is basically clear yellow, very light, with a fizzy white head. The aroma is dry pilsner type grain, very German - a hint of spicy hops as well. The aroma is sweeter but with that same grainy taste and a touch of earthy hops - not that obvious. A little citrusy in the finish.

blankboy (5945) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2011
Bottle [12oz]. Pours a clear, very pale yellow-gold with an average size lasting frothy white head. Aroma of corn, grain, biscuity malt and very light hops, too light in fact. Only slightly watery flavour is grainy and slightly sweet along with corn, biscuity malt and light hops. Very mild bitter finish. Average bodied. I’m not a big fan of Lagers but I’ve definitely had much better ones then this, this is average at best -- in short: Boring.

BBB63 (5937) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 4, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2004 Bottle: Clean light golden hue with fizzy head and good lace. The aroma has notes of herbal and floral hops, toasted bready malts, light orange zest, lemongrass, and pepper. The taste starts with a bready malt character, some undertone of citrus, and grassy tones. Detected a smooth bitterness and a hint of spice on the finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and lively, dry on finish. Overall a nicely quaffable brew but not as sharp as the best Helles.

riversideAK (5574) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - SEP 2, 2009
Did not get much out of this one at all. Nose was almost non existent with the exception of some grass and light grain notes. Poured light yellow with no head. The flavor was hard to find. Grass with a hint of sweetness. Thin with nothing much going on. Expected way more out of this one.

TheAlum (5530) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2010
12 oz bottle from Sicilianos (Grand Rapids, MI). A single I never see in Chicago. Pours a lively carbonated pretty well hazed yellow, lighter can still see through of course with a decent offwhite head that dies to a film, laces small and clings to the edges eventually.. still better than a lot of lagers. Aromas are bready malts, crackers, floral hops with a touch of spiciness. The color is a bit dulled over, but still pretty. Grass and weeds become dominant on the nose more, with bread and dough following closely behind. Initial is lighter bodied with substantial bread and dough, pretty strong grassiness, a touch of lemon (Lemongrass, even), weeds and some dryness. Spice is minimal if any. A light summer refresher, simple yet balanced with a good flavor scheme. Can’t complain much about this lager.. it’s clean, decent flavors, and balanced.. a summer quencher.

Mora2000 (5527) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Had this on tap at the Fort Worth Flying Saucer Fall Beerfest. Golden pour with a large white head. The aroma is grainy with a little bit of corn and some bready malt. The flavor is more grain with some fruity hop characteristics. I get a little bit of grape in the flavor as well as some grassy and spicy hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A nice, easy drinking Helles Lager.

Bottle. Pours a golden body with a white head. Corny sweet with some grass tones and a light apple and some bread y sweet corn notes. A bland lager with a grainy finish. eh.
