12oz can from Total Wine Tampa FL for 2$
Appearance - Slightly hazy gold colour with an average size fizzy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some faint acing. The head lasted for 3-4 minutes.
Smell - Breads/grains, lemons, corn
Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste corn mixed with some bread and grains. There is also some light hops and some lemons. It ends with a lemony/grainy aftertaste.
Overall - A great beer for camping trips or tailgating for sure. It`s very refreshing and goes down fast. Not sure how true to style it is, but it`s still a tasty beer worth trying.

Poured from the can into a medium sized Cigar City snifter glass.
Deep bright shining lemon and gold colored body. Very clear nearly bright crystal glowing. White fluffy head, a little bleached and shocking forms nicely and settles to a thick creamed bubbled collar.
Nose hints at doughy malts, but there's a macro like sweetness to this that begins to dominate. Sweet. Slightly sugary, hinting towards a fake honey sense a little.
Palate comes with a smooth controlled coating mouthfeel. But the sweetness pops out quite noticeably. Dough crisp a bit somewhat on the finish, hinting of baked bread slightly, but has a sweetness that takes over that sort of dominates. Very mild to no bitterness even for a Helles, with little spice character.
It's a fine drinkable brew, but it comes off almost like a Euro lager than a Helles.
