Notes/Commercial Description:
A true Helles style, our lager is golden in color with a pleasant, malty aroma balanced by a rich, smooth flavor. Using only the finest Bavarian malts and finished with Saaz hops, one sip will make you feel like you're in one of Germany's finest beer gardens.

This beer is simply DELICIOUS. Reviewing straight from the bottle, as I prefer lagers in bottles.

A - Served in a brown bottle, so perception of appearance was minimal. Noticed a slight cloudiness, but not sure if it was the bottle or the beer. Rated a 4 for being "interesting".

S - Nice clean lager smell. Just a slight hint of earthiness. Smells a tad heavier than your typical macro lager.

T - Where the beer really shines. What I loved about this beer is that it didn't really taste different or unique, it simply tasted better. Nice clean smooth watery lager taste with hardly enough earthiness for you to notice, but it's definitely there.

M - Excellent smooth clean mouthfeel. I am using the word "clean" a lot because that is what comes to my mind, after drinking many complex and exotic craft brews lately. This beer wont do anything funny to your tongue, it just goes down easy and tastes great.

O - This was a pleasant surprise for me. I normally prefer craft ales for their complexity, but I found this beer to be simple and reassuring. It doesn't taste funky, it just tastes good. Super easy to drink, would certainly bring a twelve-er to a party (to share of course). To some up my opinion, cheap lagers typically leave something to be desired. This beer, as simple as it is, is wholly satisfying on its own.

Would love to drink this one again ice cold at a hot summer barbecue. Or tomorrow night.
