Bottle poured into a pint glass. This Helles pours bright and light in color. Light straw with good clarity and a half inch of white foam. Looks like a Bud Lt. Touch of funky hop notes on the nose, not much variety but a pleasant hop and grain sense.

Taste brings some lemon and a balancing pils malt light bready character. Pleasant finish, slightly sweet. Simple style done fairly well though still just an old school all malt lager with a slightly more complex mouthfeel. Easy and unobtrusive.
