Pours a murky yellow with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, biscuit, and grass aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and grass flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and quite easy to drink.

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.

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.

(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.

Serving type: on-tap
