Pours a deep clear gold with a fizzy white head. The head doesn't last long but does leave a small amount of lacing. The aroma is mild, with light notes of cut grass and grain. The taste is similar with the addition of light hops earthiness. The mouthfeel is toward the lighter side with a nice bite from the hops on the finish. A very good lager.

A very drinkable, enjoyable beer. Smells inviting, tastes fresh and has a number of different taste themes all working together. Finishes clean with no unpleasant aftertaste. It just seems right to me and I would be hard pressed to order something else if this was available.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. bottle poured into pilsener

L: gold, clear, not much of a head but tons of bubbles in the column; with a super hard pour, the head reached about 1-inch of wispy white foam that evaporates quickly -- big soapy bubbles on top

S: some green/grassy hop notes with a bit of bread malt sweetness ... grain, sweet grain, sour grain; has a slight skunkiness but not too bad

T: mostly bread malt and water ... it really has a watered-down taste ... a pinch of hops but not overly bitter; the hops taste more like black pepper/earth than those greener hops in the nose

F: average ... again, a bit watery

O: far from terrible, far from great ... it's not a beer I'll buy again because we import so much better from the region, but it's also a serviceable helles with an interesting hop mix of grass in the nose and black pepper on the tongue
