3.25/5  rDev +7.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A: An extremely light blonde and a creamy one finger white head.

S: gentle grain sweetness. Very clean on all accounts

M: extremely light in body and high, snappy Carbonation

T: A tad dms flavors the malt body nicely giving it a good bready sweetness balanced by floral hops. Slightly grassy and herbal. An abundantly drinkable beer. Outstanding on that regard. Not really sure about the Munich helles classification although I can certainly sense a slight caramel/buttery sweetness. It's like their version of a bud, but made craft.

Draught @ Brewpub: This one pours a pale yellow. There was almost no white head and no lacing. The aroma is lighter: malts and some adjuncts. The taste is OK, but certainly nothing to write home about. Some malts and earthy notes.

My first impression was as if i had a mass produced american lager in front of me. Unfortunately the brewer did not and was not that Successful. Amber, tasteless, and under welming. It reminded me of August game at the stadium. Being served a day old warm beer. At least it didn't cost me 8 dollars.

On draft at the brewery.

Poured a light straw hue with no head to speak of.

The smell featured a light grainy malt and a subtle noble hop spice.

The taste consisted of a light and relatively crisp malt and a drying hop spice. Buttery bread noted.

The mouthfeel was dry and a bit thin for the style.

Overall an easy enough to drink lager. Nothing too exciting however.

Beer comes a pale straw-like color. Medium carbonation. Flavors of slight malts,some sweetness, none of that "helles" bite, nothing outstanding to really speak of. Super light to watery mouthfeel makes this one almost too easy to drink. This beer is brewed to be the brewery's "intro" beer, and it actually tastes very much like a Budweiser.too macro for my liking. when at this brewery order the S.O.B. bitter. I don't think I will order it again.

THis one is a quaffer with flavor. Nose is soapy and slightly hoppy. The pour is clear gold in color, plenty of carbonation and foam. The body is approachable, light but the malt flavor is easily detected. Quenching but flavorful. Slight hop flavor and feel break through towards the end. nice beer.

Pours a yellow color. Nice thick head that lasted through most of the drink. Lacing developed on the glass. The aroma was bland but not totally void as some malts were noticable. The taste was mellow, as malt and hops were present but not too loud on the flavor scale. Light bodied. The aftertaste was clean / light and did not ride the tongue after swallowing. Definitely drinkable, but this may get a little boring after a few.
