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.

12 oz bottle into a Chimay goblet.
A: Pours a gorgeous straw color. The head isn't much, though - not even a finger high (white shade), and retention isn't any better (read: poor). No real lacing is left behind, either. But the body is beautiful enough to make me overlook its crappy head.
S: Honestly, I don't get much. Maybe a hint of bready malts, and a (admittedly decent otherwise) noble hop profile. At least what's there is quite nice - it would be a good aroma if it were stronger. As it warms up, it seems to become a little bolder.
T: There are some nice noble hops right from the start. They're mild, but they work really well. The finish is lightly sweet. To me, this beer is more conducive to drinking than analyzing - it doesn't have much in the way of standout qualities or bold flavors, but by gawd, it just works extremely well.
M: Quite dry and crisp. Well carbonated, too. Maybe a hair overcarbonated, but that's a trifle. This goes down more than easily enough.
O: The aroma may not have been up to snuff, but the actual taste of the beer was. And that's all I really care about. There's nothing like a good lager in the right mood, and this hit that 'right mood' extremely well.
