Many thanks go out to woodychandler for providing this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, sweet, some grains. Taste is very good, malts, biscuty, some sweetness, extremely refreshing. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is a beer worth seeking out.

We pop the tab on a can, pouring a brew of dirty, wet straw. It holds a modest head of one finger tall white foam, and appears to be highly carbonated. The nose is wonderfully fresh of German grain, clean wheat, rye, powdered barley, and white rice. The hops to meet are grassy, with other balancing notes of dandelion, white sugar, honey over soggy cereal, heavy creamer, and baker’s yeast. The taste, too, is wonderfully fresh and malty, but keeps it light on the toes. The flavors are sweet, of biscuity pales, German Weiss, honey, lactic milkiness, flaked barley, soft grassy hops, sugary apple juice, and generous lager yeastiness. The body is light to medium, but crisp, creamy, and frothy, leaving the mouth happy, warmed, and satiated. Drinkability is wonderful.

Overall, this is a sleeper of a beer. We were a little blown away here. This is an amazing rendition of a not oft-made style from a smaller American brewery, and they nail it both stylistically and artistically. We didn’t really write a long review, but that should speak to its well-crafted simplicity and elegance. The aroma and flavor, both, showcase raw, flakey barley like none other, at least as far as freshness goes. We have a bunch of other “world class” beers lined up in the fridge, but I might honestly give one of them up if I could sip on this the rest of this summer’s night and enjoy the breeze and the hockey game.

355 ml can poured into a flute. This one is a nice golden yellow with a rich creamy white head that retains its form well. Aroma of hay/grass, dry cracker-like malts, and maybe just hints of orchard fruit and green peppercorns. Taste reveals why this won a World Beer Cup award in 2006. At once bready but not particularly sweet, assertive noble hops, and again just hints of citrus and stone fruit, this is a solid Helles lager. Features a very soft but flavorsome cereal malt character and hoppier than usual for the style. Moderate body with some dextrins apparent, vaguely chalky, and just the right level of carbonation, on the far side of moderate. Finishes dry and grassy with a little white pepper and grape. Nil huskiness or other off-flavors. I regret that I have only one can in my possession.
