Nice, soapy head with light lacing. Straw-yellow. Rich, sweet malt aroma smells of the wood. Starts sweet, a little tart, almost. Floral hops. Then a CRUSHING, sublime malt finish; miles of biscuit floats on floral hop bitterness.

Overall, this is REALLY, REALLY excellent if you like a malt-centric lager. The finish to this is simply amazing. It's definitely an odd-man-out at such a hoppy brewery, but it's an absolute gem.

From the sire: "Brewed with Andechs yeast … released October, 2011"

A - Helles yellow... slightly cloudy, translucent yellow brew. Thin white head which didn't last long.

S - Grains and grass. There is a bit of a sulfur at the end that is perplexing me. Smells like a German Lager.

T - Sweet, creamy and bready. It's malty flavor dominates, but there is a spicy bitter finish.

M - Light/medium body with very little carbonation.

O - I was craving a taste of Bavaria... one of the better Helles I’ve had.
