3.5/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a slightly hazy yellow orange, one finger thick white head fades quckly, nothing on the glass. Smell: light wood smoke, white grape and nectarine notes, light breadiness. Taste is similar but with the addition of a moderately spicy hopping. Not getting much pineapple other than the impression of that acidic pineapple aftertaste. Light-medium bodied, creamy feel in the middle. This is a pretty good helles, but doesn't deliver on the promises made on the label.

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.
