Bright crystal-clear gold color, though with little head and almost no lacing. The nose is extremely faint, giving just some grainy malt. Flavor isn't bad: malt predominates, though, as in the nose, it is a bit grainy. Hop flavor is on the high end for a helles, giving more interest to me than a typical beer of the style. Finish is clean. Does have a very nice light body, with a neutral texture.

The blonde was better in the early days of Rahr.

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

Pours out to a thin white head and minimal lacing. Medium gold and crystal clear. Aroma is very weak but clean with nice pale malts and slight grassy hops. Flavor is light and balanced with grainy pale malts, noble hops and clean, acidic bitterness with a spicy, dry finish. Mouthfeel is light but not fizzy or overly watery. Overall a solid Helles.

Update: I noticed that the on-tap reviews are coming in much higher than the bottles. I hope to review the on-tap version soon.
