Can. These cans are a great invention. Poured a clean gold with some white head and lace. Nose of grass, grain, lemon. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation. Light bitterness.

ganache (5853) - New Jersey, USA - APR 23, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2013 Sixer of cans, mine at 4.9% abv. Sweet and lightly floral soft nose, pours clear pale yellow with a creamy bright white head. Taste is medially bitter, actually surprised me at how bitter it is, firm and stripping to the tongue. Has a touch of mineral and a touch of metal, but more bread/pretzel, especially in the aftertaste. Crisp medium-full body feels heavy but the noble hops are just super soft here. Reminds much more of a north German pils than a southern Helles, and is perhaps a touch too aggressive. Quite simple but a killer in a can.

Welp, crushed another sixer. This may be my beer of the summer.

Can shared by b3shine. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate hop and dough malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

phaleslu (10100) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2013
12 oz. can shared by b3shine- thanks again, Beau! Pours a clear gold color with a white ring for a head. Aroma is malty- pale, bready, cereal, straw. The flavor is not as dry but sweeter. A little banana candy. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, malty mouthfeel. Good helles.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2013
Sample from a 12oz, "full-aperture" can. Thanks b3shine for sharing. Clear golden color. Good thin white head. Little loose lace. Doughy, bready aroma. Hint of banana. Good, smooth lighter body, lighter carbonation, more dry texture. Light bitter, kind of sweet taste. Tasty and refreshing. Very nice golden lager!

b3shine (8800) - Indiana, USA - APR 10, 2013
Fresh can to taster (shared with the group; thanks egajdzis). Looks good for the style; a transparent gold with white lacing. Smells doughy and lightly bitter. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. A solid example of the style.

Draft at craft ale house. Pours clear yellow with a small white head. The aroma has grass, resin, lager funk. The taste is grassy with a dry finish. Solid.

ryanscourt (1458) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2013
Malty slightly hoppy lager, not hoppy like a dunkel and a lot more hops. Solid drink, enjoying in can which keeps it nice. Nice and enjoyable.

Barcade, Philadelphia tap ($6): Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma is bread, grass, and light hopping. Taste has some grassy hops. Nice and clean, with crisp finish. Sessionable for sure.

Pours clear gold with a thin white head. Aroma of straw and grass...mild. flavor follows suit...seems a bit subdued and boring. Mouthfeel is light/medium with a light grass finish.
