3.58/5 rDev +0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
The beer comes in a light clear golden color.
The aroma has a nice grassy aroma, and a breadiness and grainy character.
The flavor is extremely refreshing. A decent punch of light citrus, grass. Then an extremely crisp cracker/bready note. A bit of a flaw from DMS or something, but a reasonable amount for the style.
A good easy drinking brew.
Serving type: on-tap

First review, first Helles tasted as far as I can remember. My comments will by no means compare to that of a beer judge, but here goes:
--bottle to pint glass; light urine / apple cider color (label notes golden which is appropriate)
--nominal head with aroma lightly sweet, but 1st thought is Foster's
--taste: like that of a standard DOMESTIC lager (which says alot pro and con, since not an American beer fan), albeit a bit smoother and definitely not as bad hoppy
--aftertaste: hangs there on the tongue / lingers in your mouth; dry, palpable cottony mouth feel requiring you to take another hit to quench it
--buzz meter: drank pre lunch@ 1130 so mild to mod on empty stomach
--burpage: slightly acidic / hoppy (this would be standard)
Drinkability: ala comic book grading scale = FINE.
Big Fan of Victory, since lived in Philly for some time, but with so many beers to try / re-try, not one I'd be HANKERING (my new category) for / no love lost; but would probably reconsider, as we all would and all know, if we had one on tap in Downingtown.
Ch33rs factor = indifferent.

EBD 3/4/14. Clear light golden pour with a nice head and normal lacing. Laid back nose of what strikes me as Hallertau hops, very slight. Light medium body with light carbonation. This is a nice Helles that is to style. The taste is laid back, as is the nose, and light with the expected effervescence. A slight sweetness coupled with a bit of hop flavor and bitterness constitutes the flavor profile. Crisp and clean finish with a touch of lingering bitterness.
