This helles pours a light orange gold color from a 750ml bottle. Medium sized whiter foamy head. Aroma is cereal and malty, somewhat sweet. A medium to light bodied lager. Malts are fruity and cereal. Hops are slightly spicy. Lots of lemon and lemon grass flavors. Yet it is a touch lactic which makes me wonder if it’s a little over the hill. Still it’s a nice summer beer. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet. JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - DEC 2, 2006
Thanks to beerguy101 for sharing this.
This was a golden colored beer with a slightly sweet flavor. I thought it was a good beer from summer. Beerdedone (3446) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2006
Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours gold with a white head. Aroma of citrus hops, and sweet malts. The flavor is sweet, citrus, and bitter. Ok beer. rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 17, 2006

Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours golden with a decent size fluffy white head. Aroma of citrus hops, yeast, and sweet malts. The flavor is sweet, citrus, carbonated, mild hops in presence. Good brew. goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - AUG 7, 2006
Winter Vintage. Poured a very hazy yellow with minimal head. Almost notes of dill pickle. Floral and malty aroma. The flavor was pretty much the same malty, tart and a hint of dill. Not sure if this really should be under the same rating as the summer. The bottle says it is an aged lager not just a new batch brewed for the winter.

big 750 ml bottle. Pours a nice ligth gold with a pretty good head and some lacing. Aroma is bready malts, very light herbal hops and a light lemony tartness indicating a slight infection which I get in many of thier beers. Flavor is also a bit tart among the malty characteristics and light hops- tart lemony and zesty with a weak mouthfeel. Watered down and bland finish. I wish I could find a cisco bottle of beer that wasnt infected. Im sure I would like this beer fresh- if someone can tell me where to buy a fresh bottle I’d greatly appreciate it.

750ml bottle: Hops up front in the aroma with a yeasty malty background. Tasted initially dry and crisp but as it warmed the fruitiness of the dense malt backbone gave a nice balance and finish. A dense golden color with a good clean white head. Good creamy bready mouth feel. Nice and fruity on the finish. Good summer offering from Cisco. User37895 (3042) - - JUN 11, 2006
Poured a murky golden color with a nice fluffy head. Aroma was citrus, spicey, somewhat wheat-like, a little musty. I was surprised it wasn’t a wheat beer, based on aroma alone. Flavor was citrus and crisp. Refreshing. Mouthfeel was moderately bodied, heavy for a lager.
