First, I hate the name. If I'd noticed it, I would never have tried it. But I'm really glad I did. I don't buy lager much, and usually only drink it when I have to, but I'll be buying this again. It's an odd-looking color -murky orange - not really appetizing but the smell has an alluring floral character. Taste is rather complex for a lager. HIghly quaffable.

Pale straw gold, compact head of bubbly white foam that seems to dissipate to a thin skim after a minute or so. Second pour yielded a much longer lasting head and some irregular spotty lacing around the edges of the glass.

Aroma is clean and slightly scented with honeyed malt. Nothing too wild, and definitely nothing off to speak of.

Taste is clean, mild apple esters from the yeast, a very light malt sweetness, though it tapers off quickly. Light bodied with moderate carbonation, and a somewhat substantial feel. Dry aftertaste of grain husks and crackery malt. As it warms up the taste improves slightly. Pairs well with just about any food except sweets.

Helles lagers are simple by design, no one is trying to reinvent the wheel here. Ignorance of the style is one thing, but to convey that ignorance into a "review" does a disservice to everyone.

Thanks to Dan for the recommendation.
