(Served in a bow-tie)
A- This beer pours a crystal clear yellow body with a gentle carbonation working to the surface. There was a snow white head that sticks to the glass with each sip, slowly making some nice lace before sliding back onto the beer.

S- The slightly sulfury aroma has some dried leaves/ lagered malt aromas in the clean finish.

T- The nice crisp pale hop flavor had some pils malt underneath with a touch of sweetness and flint in the finish.

M- This beer has a medium-light mouthfeel with a slight slippery fizz texture in the finish.

O- This beer has a nice crisp smooth well lagered flavor that is easy to drink but has some nice subtle hops and malts that keeps me sipping.

Beautiful, clean lager. Fits my taste better than Weihenstephaner and other helles I have tried.

Picked up a couple of these at the COOP last night... Pours a bright polished golden with a good sudsy white head... spotty lacing. Nose shows grainy pils malt with some background DMS.. light grassy hoppiness. Hops show as more of a spicy Continental hop on the palate... very respectable.. I will be buying this one a bunch over the summer.

On draft at Tap and Barrel, Smithtown, NY.

Poured a hazy copper hue with a faint white cap.

The smell featured a light grainy sweetness and a touch of noble hop.

The taste was likewise grainy with a soft sweetness and light herbal hop.

The mouthfeel was a touch flat.

Overall a pretty good helles.
