Poured from an 11.2 fl. oz. bottle into a pint glass. Purchased at the Hofbraeuhaus Pittsburgh - six pack to go.
Appearance: Pours a standard pale lager yellow with a decent soft fluffy head. Good looking beer.
Smell: Grassy Euro hops. Slightly grainy.
Taste: Refreshingly bitter. Grassy, slightly floral, Euro hops. Lots of grain. Biscuity but not buttery.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied yet light at the same time. Good aftertaste. Very nice.
Overall: Not too much to say about this Helles, other than it is a good one!

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.
