The beer poured into the glass crystal clear pale golden straw with a white medium head which fell slowly to lace the glass.

The aroma was mostly Saaz (or other noble) hops when first poured coupled with a malty character which had a bit of caramel. The aroma was clean with some spicy hop notes.

The flavor was malty with a clean character. The malt had a light impression of caramel but mostly seemed to be barley. Some lightly spicy hop flavors were notable and the bittering was enough to keep the malt character in it's place.

The finish was even into dry with very light lasting impressions of malt and spicy hops which faded in the aftertaste. The body was medium with a carbonation level that was just a bit lower than expected. The beer was a nice Helles lager, very clean and drinkable. It was not very complex, but was certainly a good example of the style.

12 ounce bottle.
