Oakes (16120) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2009
Draught @ brewpub. Golden colour, almost bright. Fresh malt aroma cracks with grain. Fresh, simple country lager. On the surface there seems little to it, but it is well-balanced and impeccably drinkable.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2009
Draft @ brewpub. Light gold with nice head and nice lace. Hoppy aroma is totally herbal. Quaffable palate has no stickiness and pretty high carbonation. Very very good dry helles with a beautiful balance and a blissfully floral hoppy finish. Delish. More!

MartinT (9592) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2017 My Bottom Line:
Bread crusts and light citrus suffuse this bubbly Helles, offering a textbook example.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the clear golden.
-Their Heller Bock is clearly based on this recipe.
-Mouthfeel is geared for high drinkability.
-Flavor profile is super clean, which seems to be a trend at this brewery.

On tap at the brewery pub and at Bambergs Stohrenkeller.
