I revisited this beer just recently, I did it some injustice the first time around. My review is updated to reflect the changes.
Poured from a bottle into a standard pint glass.
A: A lighter golden color that is clear as a bell. One finger white head that leaves not much lace.
S: Biscuit, fruity, floral, grass and grains.
T: Grassy, grainy, biscuity with some fruit flavors of lemon, peach and apple. A little bit of pepper and spice with a grassy and floral hop bite at the finish. Very, very dry finish that almost turns tart. Very nice.
M: Medium, not real coating and not overly lingering or lasting but very dry.
D: Pretty high, an easy drinker.
Overall a fantastic Helles that is easy to drink and a true representation of the style. There is a lot to be said for low alcohol but high taste solid drinkable beers, and this one falls squarely in that category. A fantastic Helles that should be rated as one of the best it the category.
