This beer pours a hazy gold. Has the typical head that one would expect from a Helles, and it left tracing down the glass. The beer had a midly malty flavor, though not overpowering and not cloying. There was a hint of hops, but not much more. Overall, a fine example of a Munich helles. Try one and enjoy.

I got to try this at a friend's house while watching game 6 of the 2013 Stanley Cup playoffs. 500ml brown bottle with no freshness date.

The beer poured a nice deep golden color, but I was a little surprised that it was more cloudy than clear. There was only a ½-finger of white head but it hung around for over a minute before fading to a thin rim. Lots of good lacing.

The beer had a grassy hay-like smell to it with some yeast and spices underneath.

Wow! Where did these flavors come from? The beer had some caramel malt sweetness to it, but I was surprised at the orange fruit flavor and funky yeast twang that was in it as well. Just a slight noble hop bitterness gave it a nice balance as did whatever spice they used. The end result was a really tasty brew.

Light to medium body with a crisp carbonation to it.

I really love this beer but can't get over how different the taste is from the smell.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

I so wanna make some sort of Obama joke, but, alas, the spellings just don't mesh... Anyway, this stuff pours a mostly clear lemon-straw topped by a finger of white foam. The nose comprises barley, mild flowers, and a strong twinge of lemon rind that shocks from the start through to the middle, not unlike a bolt of pain from the sciatic nerve when that uppity ganglion group gets grumpy. The taste brings in more of the same, with a stronger sense of lemon, but one that is simultaneously milder, softer, less rind-y. A vein of lightly-buttered biscuit pervades in a constant undertow, providing a nice semi-counterpunch to the lightly-fruity aspects. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a lightly creamy feel. Overall, an enjoyable helles, something I could see drinking regularly with ease.

Golden colour, clear, medium fading head, good lacing. Aroma was initially reminiscent of a Premium Lager but this gave way to malt and vanilla and later yeast and berries. Tasted toasted honey, orange, malt, hints of grain and wheat. Finish was sharp, wheaty and slightly bitter. Texture slightly thick, heavy carbonation resulted in a coarse edge. Overall this was more of an Export than a Helles as it had that slightly in your face character. Was impressed by the depth which was better than normal.
