4.2/5  rDev +9.9%

Appearance: Served a perfectly transparent gold color with a big white head and attractive lacing.

Smell: To style it had a clean lager like nose that is slightly sweet with German malts and a bit of grain.

Taste: Sweet easy flavor built for consumption. Smooth and easy the toasted Munich malts deliver a gentle sweetness and the earthy hops and spices balance nicely with a crisp dry bite at the finish.

Mouthfeel: Light crisp refreshing easy.

Drinkability: This is the epitome of summer sessioners. This is what they make big German mugs for. Take home a growler and drink it all afternoon. It is a Munich Lager. If you like the style (many BAs don’t, but if you do), try this one.

Hope this is helpful.

Pours a bright and shimmering cold color with small cap of white froth, gone quickly with little lacing. Scent is pale and muted combining clean euro-malts with lightly spicy grassy and leafy hops. Taste is quite surprisingly good, nice profile of dried grain and pilsner malt with a splash of grassy, leafy hops. Easy drinking, light but good flavor, refreshing. Light bodied, good carbonation level, slight lingering bite. A good, easy drinking beer with some character.

First had: on tap at Triumph, Philly, PA

Poured into a tumbler, a clear gold with a finger or two of white head that receded to a thin layer, leaving a tiny bit of lace behind. Basic smell of sweet malts, grainy, with a hint of hops coming through. Similar profile in the taste, with sweet, toasty malts in the foreground, a good quantity of grains, and a leafy hop presence for a bit of balance. Not overly flavorful or distinctive, a little on the light-bodied side, but still good, and fairly drinkable if you're not feeling adventurous.

Pours a clear gold and delivers a mild nose. Seems a bit sweet on the fragrance as well. Flavor is smooth with a nice unwavering tone. Feel is good on liquid and carbonation and it goes down easily. A good lager that you could have more than a few of.

Went to the Triumph Brew Pub in Philadelphia, and noticed they had a few new beers there since my last visit. Necided to try the Helles Lager. And this beer was a excellent beer. It has a good gold color and a good aroma of hops. I will definitely drink this beer when I visit this brewpub again.
