Paid $8 for a 6 pack straight from the brewery...

The beer pours an amber-golden base with a medium white head, very minimal head retention and a speck or two of lacing effect. The aroma is a subtle hop and malt, somewhat floral as if it were a weaker IPA or APA.

The taste is very Helles, smooth and a touch sweet, well balance hop and malt make this beer true to the style. So smooth that is cleanses the palette and this is you typical session beer as it ranks up there with the finest from Munich, Augustiner Brau comes to mind,

Final Thought: This is a very well done Helles that comes as close as they brew in Bavaria... and this means a lot because I lived there for six months.
