2.5/5  rDev -32.4%

Nice pale gold colored body with a very thin, big bubble head (3.25). Hardly any aroma (2.75). Brittle, almost metallic grain and hop flavor (such as it is) (2.0). Light, leaning to medium body; watery (2.75).

A really weak, unbalanced beer. The high point for flavor is a long, lingering hop bitterness, but on the whole, with what flavor there is, it's harsh and the feel is watery and bland. Only for the curious.

it takes a lot to get me stoked on a basic american helles, but this one is pretty good, and certainly superior to new belgiums summer seasonal this year. this is a bright blonde beer, take its name quite literally, with robust carbonation and a lot of clarity. the nose is simple, just one or two malts in this beer, very very light, but fresh cereals and lager yeast are the predominant aromas. the flavor is the same, rather understated, simple beer. refreshing with all these bubbles, but not unique enough to really excite me. i think the fans of true german helles bock would appreciate this one, but find it lacking in depth and in body, just a little too dumbed down here, but tasty just the same. lone tree brewing has been totally hit or miss for me, more hits lately, but this helles is neither great success or terrible failure, rather a passable new beer that should have an audience when summer rolls around.

Poured from 12 oz can into pint glass.
Appearance: pours a thin sudsy head, golden color and plenty of carbonation streaming.
Aroma: pleasant bready aroma and some grassy hops.
Mouthfeel: light and crisp with a pleasant dry finish.
Flavor: nice combination of bready malt, a bit of lemon, grassy and floral hops.
Overall: delicious lager. Would gladly have this one again.

Found this at Lowry Beer Garden in Denver...or is it Aurora. Whatevers....

Looks like a helles. Bright golden, clean beer. Slight white head due to the pour.

Aroma is a bit more malt driven than hops, but is well balanced. Nothing over the top sweet or spicy. A hint of field corn, nothing major. I was outside, so it could have been anything

In tune with the more malty helles as opposed to a Czech pils, but the hops are still here. Perhaps not providing the zing, but they do tame the malt. Hint of floral and citrus. Clean finish, very easy dirnking

Had on Tap at Yard House in Denver in a short glass

Appearance:
Clear with small mildly excited carbonation and a white head

Smell:
Attenuated straightforward German hop profile

Taste:
Clean and crisp with Nobel hops or something similar and a malt aftertaste that didn't linger too long.

Mouthfeel:
Crisp and effervescent

Overall:
Nice Helles.
That restaurant could do a much better job of cleaning their glassware
