Had this beer as part of the brewery tour. Served from the tap into a pint glass cool but not warm.

appearance was very clear. gold body and a nice foamy white head.

Smells sweet very german malt smelling.

Taste is sweet, grainy with a very light hop balance

light and very drinkable

this is a great representation of the style. Maybe one of the better Helles I have had outside of germany. don't care for much else they make but this one is very good

Rahr’s Blonde
Poured out with a nice thick white and fluffy head and is very bubbly. Its body is a nice dark golden blonde and is pretty hazy with some mild carbonation. Its aroma is very citrusy; smells of orange, lemon and peach come through along with some wheat. This beer has some very good lacing! Its light and semi crisp on the tongue with an overall grainy flavor to it. There are some tart flavors when it hits the corners of your mouth and a slight malty aftertaste. Overall, this beer is very tasty, I look forwarding to drinking this one again.

Poured into a pint glass. Pours golden with a large, white head. A finger length of head is left after the head dissipates. A moderate amount of bubbles can be seen rising from the bottom of the glass. The aroma is of bready and grainy and there is a mild floral scent. It's a pretty basic, but appealing scent. The taste follows the nose. The malts bring a nice bready and grainy flavor to the beer. There are some hops in the background which help balance the flavor of the beer. The body is light with adequate carbonation. The finish is crisp and clean. The drinkability is high. This is an excellent beer that I would drink again.

I have had this beer by the 12 oz bottle fairly frequently over the past few years and had the occasion to try it on tap recently at Boo Ray's in North Fort Worth thus occasioning this review.

Rahr lists this beer on it's website as having 4.8% ABV.

Served in a frosted schooner. Light yellowish blonde in color with large head that persisted for more than a few minutes.

Very little in the way of smell except very subtle floral aroma, which is not surprising since the on-tap serving temp had to be well south of 40 degrees.

Medium tastes of malt and very light impression of hops and sweetness balance the clean flavor profile.

The mouth feel is excellent. Very crisp with medium carbonation and little evidence of bitterness or off flavors. This is an above average classic Munich Helles Lager. Rahr has brewed this one for years and it is a staple at my somewhat famous backyead BBQ's.
