From the 12 fl. oz bottle stamped on the neck with JAN 2014-D20010748. Sampled on November 1, 2013.

The pour is yellow to golden yellow with a quick burst of a white fizzy head that disappears entirely. Looks like a Helles to me.

They promised a hop-forward Helles and grassy hops are evident on the nose. There is also mildly roasted malts, grain, and a kind of tangy and tart nip.

The body is light to medium and basically pretty good for the style.

As it warms the roasted malts really introduce themselves on the first sip. But before and after I am getting grains, tangy citrus, lemon, grass, and a dry finish. Works for me.

Leinenkugel Brewing Co. Hoppin Helles

On tap at Monk's in the Wisconsin Dells. Served quite cold in a 22 oz mug.

A) This is a bright golden brew. It was quite clear. A little soapy head which dissolved quickly to a thin collar. No lacing...

S) Light malt, grain/grass, very distant citrus, and a little spiciness.

T) Light sweetness, slightly bitter, mainly a crisp grassy flavor. Interestingly, I found a little dash of pepper on the backend, which quickly faded for a clean finish.

M) Light bodied, with crisp refreshing carbonation. Easy to pound down. Nice enough aftertaste.

O) Not to shabby, but there is nothing Hoppin at all about this Helles. It was a better option than the macros on tap. Easy drinking, and inoffensive.

Paired with the monster burger and waffle fries.

Serving type: on-tap
