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

3.16/5  rDev -0.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Golden with just a bit of carbonation and a slightly flat layer of lacing.

Smell: Apple cider vinegar. A bit astringent, but there is a nice fall muskiness and there is definitely winey alcohol in this.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Flavor is lacking. Tastes like malty wet hay, so in that sense it screams "autumn," but it leaves character to be desired. Mouthfeel is clean overall, but also leaves a sour aftertaste.

Overall: Easy drinking, but nothing special.

Serving type: bottle

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

This pours a clear, yellow straw color with a slight, white head. The aroma is very grass and grain like. The texture is thin but there is a decent punch in the taste. There is a lot of grain and straw that gives it a very earthy taste. Fairly well made for a Leinenkugel’s product.
