You’ve made a discovery – a Golden Helles from the original Lager House build by Christian Moerlein in Cincinnati’s Brewery District over 150 years ago. Today, Moerlein Lager House is brewed to the same standards that declared it the first American Brew to pass the Reinheitsgebot Purity Law. This Munchner-styled Helles is a balanced lager featuring a lightly toasted, yet defined malt character and a touch of hops for a clean finish. Moerlein Helles features a deep golden color, 2-row and Munich malt, Hersbrucker hops, averages 5.2% alcohol by volume with an original gravity of 13 and bitterness units of 19.

12 oz bottle pours golden with a white head. Aroma of malt, grass and yeast. Taste of sweet malt and a bit of bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From Aug 2008 I got this in a trade with zapata. Thanks Ben! It pours a clear light orange with a small head of foam that quickly settled down to a fine broken layer. The smell is on the sweet side with notes of biscuit and caramel but I also get a bit of citrus. The taste is of grain, roasted malt, some caramel, some biscuit, and a slight bit of citrus bitterness. Interesting flavours and I feel it's pretty true to the style. Lightish mouthfeel and the carbonation is medium, it finishes on the bitter with a slightly tart side. Pretty good stuff and it's an easy drinker.

On draft at Finley market. Light carbonation, Light body not much in way of malts or hops. Kind of a characterless boring beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JPDIPSO (6298) - Wauwatosa, USA - MAY 16, 2016
Golden color with a diminished off-white head. Caramel and grain aromas. Hints of light herbal hops. Grainy flavor with a bit of stomach acid. Light caramel and bitter finish. Acidity helps clean things away in the end, but nothing to set down and really enjoy in this one. 3/10

JK (6342) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 31, 2015
GABF 2015. Gold color. White head. Surprisingly good, thick head. Very little aroma and light malt flavor, some metal, and surprisingly sweet for the style. Given the sweetness and the metal, this beer is both flawed in its style and not very good or drinkable in any style.

Luvystypotables (2099) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 19, 2015
A fruity aroma with malt notes. Pours a clear golden color with a short lasting thin white head. A delicious fruity, slightly sweet taste. A light body with a sweet fruity finish.

Cybercat (6343) - Georgia, USA - JUL 1, 2015
Pours hazy golden with a thin eggshell head. Malty aroma is not strong and has a hint of fruit. Flavor is stronger, crisp and malty with snippets of hops and fruit. Mouthful has firm fizz if only average body. A good party beer.

Devil106 (1) - Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2015 does not count
Very smooth and drinkable. Pleasing taste. Does not sit heavily on stomach.

shrubber85 (11710) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Draft. Honey and barley malt aroma. Pale yellow with small head. Sweet creamy barley malt and hay flavor. Nice body. Great - love this beer.

t0rin0 (93) - Do Not Resuscitate, California, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Secret Krampus beer #2, thanks Peter.

Pours a dark dehydrated urine yellow with tall white head that dissipates quickly. No lacing.

Aroma is mostly corn and sugar. Smells like a malt liquor.

Flavor is more malt liquor. Mostly corn and chemicals but there are also hints of banana and booze. Low bitterness, high crappiness, too sweet.

This should be available in 24oz cans, or on cask at any of these fine establishments:
