This beer poured out bright gold with a nice head. I didn't detect much of a nose on it. A slight aroma of fresh linen, and that was all.
Taste was pretty spot on for this style. Nice, crisp, refreshing flavor with a noticeable maltiness and considerably less body than a Dortmund Export. In other words, a proper representation of a Helles Lager. I even detected a slight taste of coriander on the finish. This beer goes great with NFL preseason football.
When reviewing beers, I always try to judge them by the style and not by how much I like that particular style. I don't buy a lot of Helles Lager (I prefer American-style IPAs, porters, and stouts), but a Helles Lager is what this is and it would be unfair to bash it simply because I'm not a huge fan of Helles Lagers. That said, I will simply say that this was a really good Helles Lager and I probably won't buy it again for a long, long time.
