They ruined what might have been a pretty good Munich Helles.

Pours out to a nice golden color, brilliantly clear and a decent head with moderate lacing. Aroma is definitely hoppier than a true helles, with cat pee, pine, mint, dill and citrus and other American aromas. Flavor is a nice crisp lager that is overpowered by the trendy hop mania. Mouthfeel is good. Overall, this is offending me as I would like a good helles, not a jacked up trendy brew.

Bought a case of this on off the sale rack for 15 bucks. Had been wanting to try it but never got around to it until I saw an offer I could not refuse so I rolled the dice. Overall I give leiny credit on this one. It is a helles lager, biscuityalty malty sweet goodness with a overdose of hops for the style...FOR THE STYLE.. Do not expect an dipa, ipa, apa... Or any kind of...a. But it is a good departure for those who like malty beers but let curiosity get the best of them and buy a beer with hop in the name. Maybe this will be my gateway to hoppier beers?
