Trapp Golden Helles has a clear, straw colored body and a creamy, bright white. Both retention and lacing are quite good.

The aroma has an array of pale malt as well as grassy hops.

This is a good lager. Lots of pale malt characteristics, including a light sweetness, some crackers and bread. The hops and malt are balanced quite well, with a moderate bitterness and plenty of grassy and earthy flavors from the hops. This is a nice, crisp helles lager.

The body and carbonation are right on for the style.

This beer was good enough to have a few of. I'm looking forward to trying more Trapp beers on future trips, and maybe even visiting the brewery.
