3.3/5  rDev -11.5%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pale golden in color, head fizzes up and then quickly fades away to almost nothing.

Smells of fruity malt, almost like apple juice

Flavor mostly follows aroma, with fruit juice, sweet biscuit and slight caramel flavors. Grain and husk follow the sweetness. Hops are in the very distant background, which is appropriate for the style, but I'd still like more. Slightly earthy in the finish.

Thin to medium body, seems slightly under-carbonated. Finishes dry.

Not a bad Helles, but far from being my favorite of the style.

Serving type: bottle

3.48/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a thin head on a clear straw colored body.
The aroma is dry grain with some lemon. Mild.
The taste has a grain flavor as well with some mild bitterness. Pretty tame.
The texture is fizzy with moderate carbonation.
It's fine but lacks any distinguishing characteristics.
