JulienHuxley (2935) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2014
On tap at the brewery restaurant. Clear pale gold pour with white head. Really really grainy aroma, most yet for a helles, intense floral bouquet, fresh grain, meadow aromas, honey, pollen. Taste is like a fine czech pils minus the saaz, so bready, fluffy sweet, honey. Light palate with smooth silky carb. My best helles yet.

The body is a bright and has a light yellow gold color and inside there were lots of little yeast floaters as well as some visible carbonation too. Its head is made of a light, loose, bright white foam which builds up tall, then quickly settles down to just a thin film covering. Lacing is slick and minimal. There is a mild pale and biscuity malt character in the aroma with some light straw like and noble hope notes. Its flavor is very clean and refreshing. There is a nice bready/biscuity malty base with some mild sweetness. It also has some earthy/bready yeast notes as well. This is then balanced by a pleasant mix of classic German hops that add some herbal spice, some bitterness, a very light touch of citrus and a good crisp dry finish. The palate is light to medium with lively balanced carbonation.

Tap from Lazy Dog. Pours a transparent light gold with a thin layer of cream colored head. Taste of bread malts and yeast. Aroma of sweet malts.
