Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a hazy yellow amber color with a huge head of billowy white head. The head fades very fast at first, but then persists with it slowly fading to leave tons of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell- The aroma of the brew is big of a bready and somewhat wheaty smell with a grand showing of a yeasty aroma. There is also a good level of a lemon citrus as well as a little bit of a hop aroma of floral and grassy nature wiht a little bit of pepper smell.

Taste – The taste starts with a sweeter malty taste beginning very bready with the sweet being a mix of a more candied taste as well as a good showing of a light fruity nature. A little bit of a yeasty flavor and some wheat develop as the taste moves on from the start. There is also a coming of some light grassy and haylike flavors that come to the tongue more toward the end. With a little bit of an increase in the sweet and some floral flavors that come to the tongue, one is left with a sweet, but still somewhat crisp flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thicker side for a 6 % abv. brew with a carbonation level that is rather high. The thick body really accentuates the malt and sweet nicely all while the carbonation level makes for a very refreshing brew.

Overall – A very flavorful and somewhat sweeter helles which is still very easy drinking and enjoyable. A rather tasty brew and one to try if you get a chance.

So I was nervous about this beer at first mainly due to the very light color (since I am more of a darker beer fan) however in this review this surprised me threw and threw.

Color is a VERY clear almost water like with a light tint of yellow (just for fun) almost light corn color.

Smell is hard to pull out. Takes a few minutes but you then can really get the German aromas flowing. The multiple smells really surprise you and make you keep wanting to pull more from the glass. With the German malts and yeast you also get a very clean smell and nothing pungent or overwhelming.

Taste is what really got me. Going with the clean taste this is a very smooth drink. You can get flavors rolling with the full tongue full and taste the MUCH different ingredients. The Hopps are light and near the end with the yeast and malts.

Overall this is a very relaxing beer even coming from a slighter higher ABV 6% this has very little punishment for the after effects.

Pale yellow body with a foamy white head and big carbonation bubbles. Mild pine hop aroma with some wet grass notes. Light flavors of cereal and old lemon rinds; big hop bitterness. Medium bodied; crisp and dry finish.

An okay bock beer. Perhaps this one is a bit old as the smell was rather weak and stale. Still, it has that light, lager malt style with a bigger hop bitterness. Worth a try...
