look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Served on-draught into a taster glass at Lost Abbey's taproom. Cost was $1.00 USD. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a half finger beige colour head of some cream, nice thickness, and fair retention. Colour is a clear yellow. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Pale malts, clean malts, lactose, clean barley, some spice, and straw.

T: Clean barley forms the body. Straw. Clean malts. Pleasant refreshing lactose. Crisp. Definitely a helles; I like it, but it's simple. Subtle for the style - just as you'd expect from Lost Abbey. A tasty little lager.

Mf: Smooth, clean, and wet. Suits the flavours near perfectly. Slight rough coarseness drags the flavour out in the second act. Good carbonation.

Dr: Very drinkable. I could down this one all night. A refreshing enjoyable little helles. Well priced as well. This would be a good one to get a keg of for a party, and it's one hell of a session brew, but it's too simple for me to want to enjoy again. Still, I'm glad I tried it and it's impressive what they've done with the style. Another solid offering from Lost Abbey.

Here's a question you might see on a future SAT:

helles lager: Lost Abbey, as
a) old ale: Harviestoun
b) India Pale Ale: The Bruery
c) dry stout: Anheuser Busch
d) porter: Drie Fonteinen

It's an odd couple, yet nearly as odd to see it available in Santa Cruz. Served on-tap at burger, on to the beer:

Straw colored with a small ring of lace on top. Its aroma is on target, which offers fresh hay notes, albeit with a kiss of DMS. The style gets a little smeaered in the taste, where bitter hops spring first. Steeley. Eventually, hay and lemongrass notes arrives, but I'm left with the impression of a pilsner than a helles. It's light bodied with modest crispness, and is reasonably drinkable.

An acceptable lager, even if it doesn't make me forget of the Hofbrau's of the world. As well as they did Midnight Sessions (schwarzbier), I'm a little surprised how the Road to Helles went.

And finally, in case you were wondering, the correct asnwer was D.

On tap at Beachwood BBQ & Brewing in Long Beach, CA.

Pours a clear honey orange with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, grass, and hay. Taste is much the same with a slightly fruity flavor as well. There is a mild amount of herbal hop bitterness on the palate after each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.
