Poured 12oz bottle (best by 2/2014) into imperial pint glass with a big 2 in fluffy white head, clear light golden, left some good lacing on the glass

Aroma had some barely noticeable hops but it almost reminded me of an AAL

Taste - biscuit, malty, some honey, slight hops

Mouthfeel - light body, stronger carb, smooth drinking

Overall - It was ok, something I picked up in the Leine's sampler, and would probably not purchase this in a sixer.

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.
