A light golden colored Franconian style Helles Lager. With a slightly sweet malt body, a noble hop profile and a crisp finish this beer is as traditional as we’ll ever get.

Pored from a bomber into a Surly pint glass.

A - Gold in color with a small white head that dissipates in a few minutes after pour. Pretty standard appearance for a Helles lager.

S - First thing that i smell is the sweetness followed by some bitter hoppiness. Some smells of fruit, citrus, and a bit of skunk in there as well.

T - Very well balanced Helles with sweetness up front, light hops, and a good malt backbone. Sweet at first and finishes a bit dry.

M - Medium mouthfeel with light level of carbonation and a dry finish. Very nice.

O - Very good example of a Helles lager here. Also pretty "normal" for the "it's not normal" brewery. I would put this up to a Surly Hell any day. Perfect beer for a summer day. I thought this beer was a perfect balance of sweetness, hops, and malt. Very drinkable and will do it again if i can find another bottle.
