Previously known as All Malt Lager (Helles) & V Lager

There was a time when all beer tasted this good. Back when immigrant Brewmasters turned fresh malts and hops into liquid gold. Before big business lessened our precious beer with corn and rice. Having trained in Germany, we thirst for better beer. So, we brew better beer like this crisp, golden, helles-style lager. Brewed with patience from quality German malts and hops, it is a Victory for Your Taste!

Malt: Imported 2 row German malts

Hops: Whole flower German hops

Appearance is a slightly hazy deep yellow with a decent sized white head that goes quick. A bit of lacing remains throughout the life of the brew. Smells of malt and earthy hops with notes of spice and a few other things. This tastes of a wheat/grainy malt flavor with a slight sweetness. There is a small hop taste in there as well but I can’t detect much else. Mouthfeel is decent with good carbonation. This is a beer that would be good to give to someone who is used to macros to try and convert them. A fairly tasty lager that I would probably get again.

Just a poor beer, in my humble opinion. Not much more flavor that a Bud. A bit watery, weak hoppiness for a lager, and the musty aroma of beers that I used to drink in high school. I’d pass on this one if given another opportunity to have one.

On tap at Barley’s in Asheville. Very little white head with a pale golden body. Aroma was mild and of noble German hops. Flavor was a little weak, but not offensive.

Bottle pour with a half a finger head. This tastes every bit as good as the imported Dortmunder/Helles I’ve had. Great taste, will buy again.

Light golden color with small but lastinghead, smells of wheat oats and honey. Taste clearly of honey, roasted malts and very little hops. Nice amount of carbonation.

Pours a bright, clear yellow/light gold, with moderate white head about an inch thick. Retains for a few minutes, then quickly vanishes, leaving no lacing. Typical weak lager appearance. My nose detects scents of lemon,citrus, grains and light malt. A little weird, but has character. Mouth absorbs faint traces of malt and graininess. A slight acidic and bitter citrus-like edge near the end of tasting. probably from hops. Fairly light-bodied, with your typical lager high carbonation. As you may know I am generally not a fan of plain ol’ lagers(the non-pilsener and non-Oktoberfest kind), so I did not expect much from this. That said, it is what it is. Not supposed to be extraordinary, just an everyday-type session brew. It’s rather average at that, because I know there’s better offerings in this style out there.

Aroma and taste are both light and sweet, with only a hint of hop character. Mouthfeel is also (appropriately) light. Pour is a clear yellow with medium white head.
