I had two of these over dinner the other night and they were so-so. That said I'd like to try it outside of the can. (117 characters)

On tap @ the Sly Fox Brewing Company (Phoenixville, PA) on 10/9/11. Served in a pint glass.

Pours a clear gold, with a ½ finger of bright-white head. This retains with a thin frothiness, which bunches up around the sides of the glass, leaving back a smattering of creamy lace down the sides. The aroma smells grassy and spicy, with a fresh underlying leafy citrus character. The malts have a moderate tightness in the nose, which offers up some flavorful support and overall crispness to this.

The taste has a firm citric snap across the tongue, which spreads leafy flavors and a spicy bitterness out into the mouth. Sweet bready grains do a nice job of balancing this, while those Noble hops pull up the finish with a dry spiciness and a touch of lingering bitter fruit. The mouthfeel has a lighter medium bodied feel to it, with an overall crispness to the carbonation that keeps this tight in the mouth. Pretty overall easy feel to this here.

They excel at German styles here at Sly Fox and this was no different. This was just a crisp, flavorful, and most of all EXREMELY drinkable take on the style, with my only complaint being that this was maybe a bit too dry and spicy in the finish. Other than that though, this was had a tremendous quaffable nature to it. Good stuff! (1,285 characters)

This beer started out nicely. The appearance was a wonderful clear golden color every bubble being clearly expressed. But as it warmed slightly things seem to fall apart. What were generous toasted malts in the nose became sort of sweet cereal without being interesting. The taste was cloying with none of the charm of a great helles. I probably wouldn't order this again. (372 characters)
