On tap at Home Brew Mart.
A: Pellucid pale yellow with a modest and fast fading white head.
S: Grain with a little biscuit and dough. Lightly sweet, with a low noble hop spiciness. Clean, with no fruity esters.
T: Slightly sweet grain, bread, and Pils malt flavor with a low noble hop bitterness. There's a light spiciness on the back end. The finish is clean.
M: Upper light to lower medium in body with medium carbonation.
Overall: This is delicious and ridiculously drinkable. I want to take down an entire growler right now.

Bottle was a 2006 GABF left-over that was given to me as a reward for my volunteer efforts. Thanks a million to GABF and to Ballast Point Brewing for the opportunity. Entered into judging in category #18 (Munchner Helles).
Pours a two finger clingy white head. Crystal clear dull-light yellow liquid. Looks like a macro lager or a light macro lager. Smells a little bit of zingy hops. Pils malt and a hint of yeast.
Tastes simple. Gentle pils malt sweet with a hallertauer floral. Nice zing hops make the end. More and it would come across as peppery. Touch of grassy with a sweet that hangs oon the back of the tongue. Just a touch of creamed corn (suggesting DMS). Not to style, but at a level that I find adds character, rather than detracts. Soft simple and tasty. I see myself buying this one for hot summer days next year.
Md body and hangs on the tongue enough to keep the malt and sweet around a while. Nice, very drinkable.

12 oz. bottle, picked up at the local Total Wine,
A: Pours gold with a light white head, average retention, no lace.
S: Sweet bready pils malt, very much a classic German Helles nose.
T: Lovely simple bready malt, yet vibrant. A soft noble hopping lends a good balance, very easy to drink.
M: Crisp, clean, light-bodied, well made here, no off flavours.
O: A classic craft lager for the summertime. I don't now why I'm seeing bottles of this for the first time come wintertime, but I'll be looking for this in June.

12 ounce bottle - Hop City Beer & Wine in Birmingham, Alabama.
Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, pale hay-hued beer with a medium-small, white head, though its retention is fair.
Smell: Pils maltiness with softly toasted grains, a little yeasty breadiness, and gentle hop notes of lemon and grassiness.
Taste: Subtle pils malt bill, lightly toasted grains, a modest cereal sweetness. Citrus alongside a minute grassiness, ample peppery hop bitterness. Scantly yeasty. A little more lemon precludes the crisp, easy finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium, active carbonation.
Overall: A crisp, clean, refreshing beer for the Memorial Day Weekend.
