3.78/5 rDev +12.2%
This beer is very close to being a dead-on Helles. It is a very clean lager that really lets the blend of Munich and Vienna malts shine. This is not a macro style lager, no way, no how!
Straw yellow color with a moderate head. Aroma is sweet and grainy with a hint of alcohol. The taste is malty without being sweet. The only issue I had with the taste is that it is too bitter for the style. This beer is well balanced, but a helles shouldn't be...not that there is anything wrong with that...
If more brewers made good helles, more BMC drinkers would get turned on to real beer.

2.95/5 rDev -12.5%
Straw colored with a light chill haze, nice active carbonation, and a decent white head that turns to a lasting ring. Grainy malt aroma and flavor with a strange almost adjunct-like character. Light bodied with a crisp malty dry finish.
OK at $6/growler but would have been disappointed at $4.50/pint... surprisingly macro-ish.
Note: This review was based on a growler from the Centreville, VA location. 5.7% ABV per the chalkboard at the brewpub.
($6.00 / Growler fill)
