12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a golden straw yellow with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Bready pilsner malts, some sweetness, cereal grain, and Noble hops.

Taste: You get more sweetness in the taste than the nose. Bready and toasted still hops in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, crisp, refreshing, light bodied, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Pretty nice helles lager. Pretty nice for this humid Orlando weather.
