(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.

Clear light yellow golden color in the tall glass. Some low foam when you pour, but lots of bubbles streaming. The mouthfeel is a little slick with some malty body. The carbonation runs out of gas before you're down the glass.
Lots of aroma. Grassy, cut alfalfa, bread baking. The flavors are crisp but fruity with a touch of pear. Some distinct sweetness with a taste like graham crackers. Flavors are full of aromatics. It's quite hoppy, perfumey, and resiny, though not overly bitter as you sip. More bitterness at the finish.
This is more of a Pilsner taste to me, but in any case a classic European flavor that's worth trying. One of the better Ninkasi brews and nice to taste a lighter style with such good results. From the 12 oz bottle purchased at Bine & Vine in San Diego.
