[Suggested Glassware: Lager Glass]
The pour was a clear golden yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white frothy head that quickly diminished, down to a light wispy film and small collar with fair spotty lacing.
The aroma was very mild with a light biscuit malt, some grassy hops and a dusty yeast with hints of caramel, adjuncts (corn I believe) and a slight grainy appeal.
The taste was lightly malty with a touch of caramel early on, and then became mildly bitter and grainy with a mild adjunct finish. The flavor lasted only a short while proceeding the swallow, with a slightly bitter grainy taste left behind.
Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a medium carbonation.
Overall I found this brew to be just OK, it was refreshing but really did not have a lot of flavor. This is a good brew when doing yard work on a hot Summers day when you're looking for something more than just to quench your thirst...

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.
