pours yellow with white fluffy head, the aroma is grass, yeast. The flavor is grassy, a little citrus, light caramel, and about it. Overall a very generic beer, the body is light and dry with little aftertaste, it is a refreshing drink.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from an Egerer Advent pack from the Woodland CostCo. Pours gold with a white head. Aroma of fruity/spicy hop and bread - fairly strong in total, but not sure any one thing stands out. Med minus body. Flavor is fruit/bread with arguably a mild touch of spice as the beer drains away. Not wholly dry; not very bitter. Drinkable. These "common" helles beers from Egerer are teaching me to tolerate things that are relatively mild in flavor.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rating #2216 - 2015.12.03 - Can #3 in the 2015 BeerAdvent Calendar for Costco. Clear, pale yellow pour with a weak white foam that fizzes away quickly. Aroma is sweet malts, grains. Taste is mild floral hops, more sweet malts, and quite grainy on the finish, which is dry, but crisp. Mouthfeel is bubbly, but satisfying.
