This is labeled as a Helles at the brewery, but that does not mater much.

A: Pours a bright and clear golden/yellow color. A two finger white head forms with good retention. Light lace is left behind.
S: Pretty neutral in the nose. Light grain, cereal and sweet malt. Not much else.
T: Plenty of flavor though. Big dry biscuit flavors. Toasted grain and a light sweetness follows. Very nice.
M/D: A light to medium body. Not watery at all. Dry, crisp, and clean. Very easy to drink. I can quaff several without a thought.

This is a very nice lager. I really enjoyed it, and something that is worth a try.

2.63/5  rDev -16.2%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: Beer pours pale straw. White head fades quickly.

S: light but distinct hint of sugary sweetness up front but not much else.

T: Palette opens with a nice light sweetness (agave / very mild honey). Mid-palette is watery and indistinct. Finishes hit a hint of bitterness and a lingering mild sweetness.

M: Mild carbonation with a nice smooth, slightly thick mouthfeel and clean finish.

D: Easy to drink but nothing special to pull you back for another.

Not impressed with this one. I think the hop schedule is off from style. They said they use Magnum hops which is an american hop. The flavor was a bit off, not the standard crispness I expected. Poured a bit cloudy with very little head. Would not buy this one again but fret not their other beers are better.
