Blind tasted with 4 other helles/dortmunder lagers. Lagers were: 1. Sly Fox Helles Golden Lager 2. Lakefront My Turn #023 Dylan 3. Benediktiner Original / Hell 4. Schloßbrauerei Fattigau Schloß-Export 5. Key Helles. Both raters rated the beers 21534.

355ml can. Gold pour. Fruity aroma, mixed popsicle aroma. Falvor is grainy and hoppy, fresh, refreshing, bit bittersweet.

Post tasting thoughts:
This delivered but was a bit odd in a few ways.

Drank this on a hot day after doing yard work so this got a higher rating than I probably would’ve given it. Aroma was weak. Lager smells with a hint of boiled egg. Pour was a light clear gold with no head. Taste was offensive at first but then as I got hotter it tasted better. Fresh baked bread and crust were the main flavors but there was little carbonation to help them. The sulfur hurt and there was a wet doughy finish. Im not a huge fan of the style to begin with, but this is one of the rare German styles that I think Americans just haven’t figured out yet
