Purchased a bomber from Brew Thru at Nags Head, NC.
Poured into a tall 22oz taper glass. Nice straw-colored yellow with a relatively small white head of less than a finger or so. Crystal clear on the pour but not much lacing to speak of.
Smells like your basic lager, but has a touch more on the nose in the way of grain or malt. Smells good, but nothing more than average.
Taste is interesting in that there is a lot more malty sweetness on the palate than you would expect for the color and the nose. There is still a decent amount of balance here, but there is definitely a nod to the malt. Finish is mostly clean, but that sweet grain wants to hang in there for a while.
The mouthfeel is heavier than you would expect, perhaps because of the maltiness. It was rather enjoyable in the beginning but the longer it went on, the more I was ready for the glass to be done so I could move on. Not something I would drink a lot of, but definitely something I would enjoy in smaller doses. I liked it overall and would like to try it with food next time.

Bought a 22-oz bottle on the way back from OBX. Poured into a Prima Pils glass. Appears dark gold, clear with nice head that eventually fades. Good carbonation. Smells a touch sweet due to Pils malt. Clean & crisp. Low noble hop character. Subtle spiciness. Tastes clean with sweet pils malt. Perhaps a tad too heavier than I'd prefer. Overall, a very solid helles. Glad to have tried and would drink again.

Served on-tap at Weeping Radish Eco Farm & Brewery in Grandy, NC
A: Pours a very lightly hazy dark apricot/peach to orange in color with some very light amounts of visible carbonation and some golden yellow + peach highlights. The beer has a half finger tall sudsy/soapy off-white head that reduces to a medium to large patch of very thin film along with a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light to moderate aromas of caramel and grainy malts with a touch of sweetness and just a hint of spicy hops.
T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of malts - I get both caramel malts and toasted cereal grain malts with a light amount of sweetness. There are some very light hints of earthy and spicy hops that become a little more pronounced as the beer warms up. Light amounts of bitterness which fades rather quickly.
M: Slightly less than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin/watery.
O: This beer was easy to drink but just was not a good enough representation of the style for me to want to go back for more. There was just a little something missing in the mouthfeel and the flavor that left we wanting.
