3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a straw color with a big head that fades into a small spotty head quickly leaving some lacing on the glass.
The aroma is honey, sweet malt, mildly floral with a good dosing of herbal hops.
The hoppiness of this beer is dominantly herbal with a little bit of spicy character, the beer is hoppier than most of the examples of Helles that I’ve tried. The beer also has a nice hay, honey, and crisp malt profile, it’s a touch on the sweet side but the hops go a long way in balancing that.
