(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.

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.

12 oz single bottle, purchased from Roth’s Sunnyslope Market in S.Salem. $1.79 Pours a clear corn oil yellow with a nice thick and frothy pure white head..that sticks around. Bready,slightly toasty malts dominate the aroma..touch of grassy hop. Taste is the same but has a really pleasing smooth almost buttery hint to it that helps.. Nice smooth low to medium carbonation..Touch of hop in the end. Nice enough summer drinker. Good lager.

12oz : pilsner glass

Clear, pale golden yellow with a with a foamy, lightly fizzy white head. Decent retention.

Grassy, lightly spicy hops, with a crackery, biscuity malt backbone.

Medium body, standard, foamy carbonation.

A well done Helles Lager. Easy drinking, yet subtle complexities are there if the time is taken to appreciate them.
