look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: 4.0 - Crystal clear light gold with a small frothy head, lots of fine streaming bubbles.
S: 4.0 - Very nice aroma for a Helles, not grainy at all, just good clean malt.
T: 3.75 - Much like the nose, the dominant flavor is simple pils malt. Bitterness is moderate, higher than some examples of the style, but there's not much hop flavor, and emphasis is on the malt.
M: 3.5 - More body than many examples of the style. Maybe a little too heavy, as it's not as easy drinking as most.
O: 3.75 - Gets the style right flavor-wise. Unfortunately, Helles just isn't an exciting beer.

Poured from 22oz bomber into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium golden hue with no haze and a very strong effervescence. Head is a finger of pillowy ivory foam. Pretty attractive!

Smell: nice malty aroma, but aside from just "malt" there's not a lot of character here.

Taste: lots of basic malt character. Hops are low enough to not be terribly detectable, though there is a very low bitterness. It's very clean, I will give it that, but there's not a lot of complexity here.

Mouthfeel: light body with a big carbonation and a good creaminess despite its lightness. not bad.

Overall: this is tasty enough and seems well-crafted, but there is not a lot of great complexity here. Perhaps that is the point -- just a clean, drinkable lager.

Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint. A fairly aggressive pour produces a short-lived white head that dissipates into a ring of lace along the edge. The beer is an extra pale golden with very light carbonation.

Light Munich malt flavor and aroma with a very light hop character. A very pleasant fruitiness makes itself felt. DMS notes are absent or very subdued. Delicate complexity, very smooth, and extremely drinkable/sessionable.

This would be "the bomb" on a hot summer night. An exceptional lager beer and quite possibly "World Class".

These 22's have been around Boise for a couple of weeks now.. Finally got around to picking some up over the weekend... Poured one tonight into my CC Teku... short-lived white head... no real lacing as expected.. The brew is perfect bright pale golden.. Clean pale malt with spot-on hoppy balance from the bitterness and the light residual grassy hoppy flavor.. Drinkability is off the charts.. I love a proper Helles and Full Sail really nailed this one.
