look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

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)

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.
