Had on tap at Zum Schneider in a 1l Mas.
Appearance: Golden yellow color that is very translucent and clear. It yielded a nice 3 finger head that had long legs and left minimum lacing.
Smell: Very fresh smelling hops with nice notes of cereal and wheaty aromas. A little bit of citrus as well, but the true essence of the beer is that it smells very fresh and refreshing.
Taste: Its got some lemony hops and grassyness throughout the duration of the drinking. Nice noticiable hops came through with a good amount of citrus on the back end. very nice beer.
Mouthfeel: Good solid carbonation at the beginning of the beer. Towards the end, and its biased because it was out of a liter mas, but it had a much flatter feel by the end. Still it was nice textured and rolled well through my mouth.
Drinkability: nice medium to light bodied beer with good flavors and lasting taste. If i had to dirnk it only out of 1 litre mas all day, i would drink this beer among a select few for sure. Its a definate session beer.
Serving type: on-tap

500 ml bottle into lager glass, bottled on 3/26/2013. Pours crystal clear golden straw color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of light lemon, pear, apple, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, straw, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of light lemon, pear, apple, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, straw, and yeast earthiness. Slight earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of light lemon, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, straw, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of pale malt, earthy hop, and yeast ester flavors; with a very clean flavor profile and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and clean mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice Helles style. All around good balance and robustness of clean pale malt, earthy hop, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
