Poured from the canned version.

A: 4.5 Crystal clear light golden color with a substantial head, nearly an inch tall initially, still persistent a minute later.
S: 3.75 A bit faint, but a nice pils type malt aroma, with light hoppiness.
T: 4.25 Really good for a Helles! Delicious malt, not grainy at all, with medium to medium high bitterness and delicate floral hop flavor.
M: 4 Nicely carbonated
O: 4.25

Possibly the tastiest Helles I've ever had. It's probably too bitter for the style, approaching a decent pils in hop presence, which probably explains why I like it so much. It's quite tasty and quaffable. Recommended!
