4.11/5  rDev +6.8%

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.
