Bready, no real aroma, a decent representation of the style

A completely average lager. Not bad and I would drink it again gladly, but nothing memorable either.

Although it was fresh from the can, the smell was unpleasant, bordering on rotten. Taste didn't remind me of an actual Munich Helles. Feel lacked crispness. It didn't invite me to keep on drinking, which is what I expect from a beer like this.

For a SoCal lager, Golden Road's 329 is much better. As for Ballast Point-- their Kölsch ("Pale Ale") and their Witbier ("Wahoo") are MUCH better if you're looking for something light and refreshing. This is the first beer of theirs that I didn't admire.

04/27/13 At Beer Authority, NYC. Just a taste. Looking for something crisp & refreshing & this was not it. A bit too much linger & lacked crispness. Worth another look in a different mode.
