Malty and a little cloying on the finish there. (I expected a stronger hop note?) Something about it was syrupy?

Imagine if what passes for lager tasted like this. Imagine.

A great looking beer. So smooth and easy to drink.

Served in a willibecker at the lodge. Pours a golden-orange hue with a slightly hazy clarity and a loose, bright white head. Nose expresses light, fruity esters, a slightly grassy quality and a hint of sour mash. Taste follows nose with the addition of a light biscuit malts, a hint of sweetness and a faint, lingering sour mash character towards the back. Mouthfeel is light in body with a pleasant, even carbonation and a clean, mostly crisp finish. Overall, a solid domestic Helles on par with those I've had in Germany; however, I'd like to see more of a clean finish.

I had two glasses while dining at the Green Mountain Inn. Went well with both meals, one light and one being a heavier meal. Very refreshing and sessionable.

On tap at El Cortijo in Burlington, VT.

Pours a clear golden classic yellow lager flavor. There's a one inch head, and not a lot of lacing.

Smells like lager yeast, grassy/spicy hops, and toasted bread.

This one tastes a bit like drinking a mildly yeasty bread. The malt flavor is great. There's a twinge of lager yeast flavor, with only the slightest amount of hop flavor- falls into the spicy and grassy spectrum of hop flavors. Slightly doughy.

The beer is light bodied, with a crisp and bready mouthfeel. It goes down really, really easily.

The best beer I had at Trapp, probably the best Helles I've had.

Poured from a crossroads beverage growler

Nice golden color with a moderate head that dissapates quickly

Smells of cracker and bready malt

Nice crisp taste with an emphasis on the malt with a light hop finish

Good mouthfeel for the style

Overall a very drinkable helles lager that you can definetly session.
