4.15/5  rDev +24.6%

A-blonde/light amber, crystal clear, two cm white head that stands in the glass
S-bready, malty, slight sulphur (ok, it's a lager - might improve with longer lathering)
T-clean, malty, very much to Helles Bock style, just the right hop balance to have a clean finish without really noticing the hops.
M-medium to full body, appropriate for style
O-a fine example of the Helles Bock style; in BJCP terms, it would score in high 30's to low 40's.

GB allows its brewers to perform.It is apparent from the reviews here that some excel and some don't. This GB brewer (Cheektowaga, NY) got it right.

A finger and half of head on a clear, straw colored body.
The aroma is grain with metal. Not great.
The taste is average: grain, mild bitterness and mild sweet finish.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
A mild drink overall without any offensive notes... or redeeming qualities.
