Bright and clear, light gold with a fluffy white cap. Good head retention overall and lacing was spotty on the glass. Soft malty aroma with notes of floral and grassy hops, almost bready. Mild bitterness, floral and grassy with malt sweetness and slight mineral flavour. Sort of spicy in the finish, but this was mild in character and balanced by the malt and more pronounced bitterness at the end. Medium/light bodied, moderate to low carbonation, on the dry side, soft on the palate, decent texture. I quite enjoyed it.

I got this at Bierkraft in Brooklyn while picking up a wet hop Blue Point bottle. This refreshing and tasty beer is very bright in the glass poured from the 500 ml bottle. Golden hay notes overlay the malt nose. Great balanced flavor with plenty of heft for a helles. Even better as it warms up. This is a very well made, extremely enjoyable beer.

Pale straw gold, rapid carbonation visible. Billowing foam settles to a clingy, soapy white collar after a few minutes. Bright clarity, maybe the slightest haze towards the end of the bottle.
Aromas of minerals, grass, and fresh bread.
Bready malt, lemon pith, quenching with a dry grassy finish. Very clean, Light bodied, crisp and well carbonated. It has a prototypical and flawless Helles blueprint. Very drinkable and worth trying if you like the style.

Poured into a Schaumburger pilsner glass. Pours a light golden amber with a half finger white head with good retention due to active carbonation, moderate lacing. Aroma of bready with hints of biscuit malt, grassy hops and lemon. Flavor is slightly sweet bready and biscuit malt, grassy, slightly peppery hops, light citrus and a touch of wheat. A nice, lingering light lemon, hop and malt aftertaste to the finish. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. A light, pleasant helles lager that hits all the right notes. Flavor is not intense, but appropriate for the style. A very nice beer for drinking with a meal for non intrusive malt and hops. Sessionable.

A: The beer is crystal clear light yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down, leaving a thick collar around the edge of the glass and some bubbles on the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of floral and grassy hops as well as. Ready malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste mostly resembles the smell, except that the malty flavors seem to stand out a little more in front of the hops, the latter of which contribute
M: It feels medium-bodied and very clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is an excellent representation of the style and has lots of flavors of malts and hops. If you put a blindfold on me, I could picture myself drinking this in a Biergarten in Germany.

@ Atwoods, Somerville MA
Stepped outside myself and ordered a beer with the tap handle I liked best. It was white with a brilliant lizard green country scene.
Gold with a white head and an eye catching tap handle for whatever that's worth. Doughy and slightly grassy floral aroma. Tastes spring-y green apple and and honey. Full, plush body. I've had a few good lagers lately (Tarnation comes to mind) but this is the best of the bunch.
The good tap handle =good beer theory works. Sometimes.

16.9oz bottle purchased as a single from Beverage Warehouse, Winooski, VT.
Poured into an imperial pint, formed a 1/2" white head over the clear very light golden brew. Head lasts well, with lasting chunky lacing. Aroma is sedate and balanced.
Taste is sweet to start, touch of citrus in the middle, to a rounded bitter close. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, smooth, and drinkability is nice and easy. Session-worthy.
