3.43/5  rDev +1.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Bottle at Iron Monkey, Jersey City, NJ

A: The beer is hazy pale yellow in color and has a high amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high white head that has good retention properties and consistently left a quarter finger high layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: Light aromas of floral hops are present in the nose along with hints of bready and grainy malts.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of floral hops along with stronger notes of bready and grainy malts.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink but doesn't seem to be a good representation of the style—the malts do not taste like those in a German helles.

3.46/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served in a bottle at Iron Monkey in Jersey City, NJ

A: Pours a crystal clear light to medium golden yellow in color with light amounts of visible carbonation and some bright yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy white head that reduces to a medium patch of thin film with a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of biscuit malts with some light notes of citrus/lemon and grainy sweetness.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of biscuit malts with some lighter notes of cereal grains and a hint of toasted malts. There is a light flavor of lemon citrus and some hints of grass. Light amounts of herbal and floral hops that impart a light amount of bitterness in the finish which fades fairly quickly.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Lightly chewy.

O: This one does not really fit well into any specific style but it is an interesting beer to try - I did not love it but I didn't hate it either. Pretty easy to drink and sessionable but not super interesting.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pale yellow in color with perfect clarity. Poured with a short white foam that quickly reduced to a soapy cap. Bready, biscuity aromas with light floral hop and earthy, grassy notes at the end. On the lighter side of medium bodied with crisp carbination. Flavor is similar with bready, biscuity malt up front with floral hop flavor through the middle to the end. Finishes clean and crisp with a tangy floral hop bite followed by a bready, maltiness.
