3.7/5 rDev +3.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Aroma: Lager yeast and very faint noble hops.
Appearance: Medium yellow, bright and crystal clear, very good white head that falls away not too quickly.
Flavor: Soft malt up front with a mild bitterness in the middle, finishing dry
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body, medium carbonation
Overall Impression: The dry finish keeps this beer from being too filling. The malt flavor adds interest to keep an experienced lager drinker happy.
Comments: A good session beer for people who are bored with light beers. This beer fall short of the Munich Helles standard, but I prefer my Helles to be more like a Maibock than a standard American lager.
Serving type: bottle
