A: An alluringly bright gold color.

S: Pleasantly sweet grains. Freshly shelled wheat husks. No grassiness nor subtle spicing can be detected.

M: Medium bodied and smooth. Not as a crisp finish as desired. Only semi-dry, and left with a wet palate. Breadiness pervades.

T: Honeysuckle. Very clean tasting malt forward beer. Needs more hop bitterness to tidy up the malt sweetness.

O: Definitely showcases the German malts nicely, but at the expense of any noticeable contribution from the Czech pilsen hops.

This golden lager is very light and easy to drink. I enjoy this beer very much. The German pips malt really stands out in the taste. And the hallertauer hops are the perfect choice to put a hint of bitterness in the after taste. I would recommend this beer for a tailgate or on the beach.

A: Straw golden with a fluffy white head. Attractive I declare.

S: Floral, and biscuity.

T: Earthy, floral, grassy hops with a light bready/biscuity flavor to it. Gentle and refreshing a great showcase of the noble hops.

M: light bodied crisp dry and refreshing.

O: For an American brewery, it's hard to do a better helles lager. Very sessionable great drinkability.

330ml can. Footed flute glass @ Freiburg (L´Hospitalet-Barcelona). Pale gold color, clear appearance.. White froth, close crown & fairly good retention. Spicy, floral, yeasty & grassy aromas. Malty & crisp upfront rounded by hints of apple & pear on the back. Light body. Moderate but lively carbonation. Pale malty texture & spicy touch. Clean bitterness arises in the middle & lingers into a bitter/sweet finish. Dried aftertaste. Easy to drink !!
