3.44/5  rDev +0.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a dimpled mug.

Look: Opaque yellow straw color with a few rising bubbles -- A white head recedes to a collar and a light wisp. Very light spotty lacing.

Aroma: Malts and grains, some grassiness, followed by some light hops and subtle citrus.

Taste: A sweet malt bill to start, with an almost nutty character. Subtle hoppy bitterness and citrus in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Light, goes down easy.

Overall: Not a fan of the style, but this one goes down easy enough.

3.08/5  rDev -9.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Look: Thick sudsy white head dissipates quickly. Mild carbonation. Color is hazy straw.

Smell: Light clean hop and barley malt.

Taste: More of the same. Add some bready malt to boot. It certainly is a bright lager.

Feel: Lighter body than I was expecting. Kinda watery. Half-dry finish.

Overall: Pervasively average. If your looking for a crisp clean Lager you could do a lot worse OR a lot better.

2.43/5  rDev -28.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

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.

3.53/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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.

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

Clear with small mildly excited carbonation and a white head

Attenuated straightforward German hop profile

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

Crisp and effervescent

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