12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
A: Golden in color, hazy. Short-lived white head. Spotty lacing.
S: Biscuity malts. Slightly doughy, light toast. Hints of herbal and grassy hops. Faint lemon zest. Very clean.
T: Pilsner malt lays down a grainy and biscuity flavor. Mild oily hop bitterness balances nicely. Grassy and slightly herbal/spicy. Perfectly clean. Grainy malt finish.
M: Light bodied. Slight malt firmness. Blast of aggressive carbonation cuts through the body. Crisp.
O: A pretty good stab at the Helles style. Not as honed as the best of them, but it's free of flaws and drinks nicely. Pretty good stuff, I could see a six pack disappearing quickly on a nice day.

A-Clear straw yellow, no carbonation, not much head either.
S-Malt, straw, wheat not much of anything.
T-Very similar to the nose, straw, wheat, semi-sweet. No bitterness.
M-Lighter, not much carbonation and watery.
O-A boring, bland, nothing new lager. No reason to have other than the tick.

Served on tap in a pint glass.
A - Yello and on the clear side. Not a lot of carbonation going on, but there was about a 1" head. Some lacing left behind in the pint glass.
S - Not much going on. The dankness of a lager, with some hops to it. Not bad, just not much there.
T - Munich Helles Lager's are my favorite stlye, and I don't think this is the best representation of the style. Not a bad tasting beer, but not nearly as good as other popular Munich Helles'. A fair amount of hoppy bitterness, with just a touch of an adjunct-like flavor, which I didn't like. A cut grass / flowery aftertase.
F - Pretty refreshing. I prefer my lagers to have a little more carbonation, though. Certainly easy to drink.
O - Not a bad beer, but there are Munich Helles' that are much better. Not a bad flavor, and I'd drink this again, but probably wouldn't buy it. Decent beer, but there are many better Munich Helles', Spaten, Lowenbrau, Hofbrau, and others.

A very good drinkable lager. Pour is a 1/2 inch of bubbly head that fizzes to just a mild lace ring. Color is a respectable bright bubbly yellow. Smells of lager yeast, biscuit, and a touch of herbal hops. Taste is about the same but very clean and crisp. I kept thinking how many lagers I had and none impressed me as much. Mouth feel is again bubbly, light and crisp.
Overall a step up from BMC and just enough flavor to impress a craft veteran like me this beer has it all. Give it a try.
