Hazy gold with a short, off-white head.
Light fruit, sour grain malt aroma.
Taste is rather tart fruit, apple, slightly acidic.
Very crisp and carbonated, increasing tart/sour.
Not bad. Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - OCT 22, 2010
Bottle: The aroma consists of yeast, vegetables, apple, and light sour citrusy/lemony solvent notes...certainly not what a Helles should smell like. It pours a hazy orangish-yellow with a small head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with a light sweet cereal and grain. The finish has some lightly sour and citrus flavors. Light bodied with lively fizzy carbonation. Tri-City needs to figure out their bottling issues. This is clearly showing signs of infection and it’s not the first beer I’ve had from them that’s been infected. This would get killed if I rated it to style. On the hedonistic scale, the sour notes aren’t as horribly off putting as they are just simply out of place. jgb9348 (6478) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2011
Hazy golden honey coloured body with a pungent glow and a very nice frothy off-white head with larger bubbles - great looking, for sure. Aroma of fresh pale malt, lemons, coriander seed and a bunch of cardboard - not much else. Light-bodied; Sharp lemon and acidic flavour up front with a mild sweetness, a ton of sour lemon juice taste and some very mild tastes. Aftertaste shows the odd combination of lemons and light malt with very little else. Overall, an interesting beer - not horrible, but not showing the best characteristics of the style - light and citrusey for sure. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Merchant’s in Dearborn, Michigan on 30-July-2010 sampled at home in Washington on 14-April-2011. Cybercat (6142) - Georgia, USA - JUL 10, 2010
Aroma is strong with plenty of fruity tones and an undertone of yeast, slightly sweet. It pours a clear yellowish amber with a thick, if not persistent, cream-white head. Flavor is malty, yeasty and fruity with a touch of sweetness and a hint of hops. Texture is very smooth yet quite fizzy, leaving behind a nice tingle. rumproasts (6035) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 18, 2012
golden with small head. grainy and bland. nothing awful about this, but it’s about as boring as beer gets.
