2.86/5  rDev -14.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Hazy pale yellow body, topped by two fingers of rocky snow white foam. Spotty lace drops.

Appealing pineapple aroma with bakery back up.

Soft malt beginning. Light pineapple before the swallow. Strong smoke finish. Needs more pineapple. Needs less smoke.

Light tingly mouthfeel, proper for a helles.

Don't care for the smoke and pineapple together, and the while the helles might have been enough for the pineapple, more body is needed to stand up to both the pineapple and the smoke.

Pours into a 1/2 liter stein a light straw color with a large blooming bone white head that settles very slowly into a frothy mass leaving broken globs of lace behind.A bit grilled pineapple and toasted grain mainly in the nose,the smoke is light.A nice fuller feel with the carbonation not getting in the way.An interesting but I have to say a little strange palate,pretty sweet from the the grilled pineapple with some smoky "meatiness" wich makes for an odd combo,a light drying toastiness in the finish.Well I wanted to drink something light today to enjoy outside on this 70 degree day but I also wanted something with character....this has it,maybe a little too much character in fact.

Bottle share at Proof courtesy of jbruner. Pours an odd vibrant yellow. Almost no head, but there is a thin white collar. Aroma is very muted light malt, a touch of some kind of other sweetness too, but it doesn't really remind me of pineapple. Taste is the same. Muted, faintly reminds me of sweet pineapple. Good beer, but nothing crazy.

22 oz bottle served in a lager glass.

Pour is hazy and golden, with a bubbly and durable off-white head. Good, sticky lacing.

Aroma: fruity, with a bit more pineapple than smoked malts.

Flavor: less sweet (mildly bitter) and fruity, and a touch more smokey than suggested by the aroma. Malt base comes through clearly, while the hops are most obvious in the mild bittering. Good balance and mix of flavor.

Feel: light-medium body, with high, lively carbonation; light astringency.

O: Distinct; good mix of pineapple and malts, with balancing hops.
