3.28/5 rDev -2.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3
Some nice suds in the glass and plenty of lacing. The usual pale yellowish color. A faint aroma of peaches and straw.
A very subtle flavor mostly of light malt with some fruit. Grainy and lemony, but rather sweet. A hint of fruit cocktail but it's pleasant enough. The best attribute is the creamy, sudsy mouthfeel. After some sipping a rather bitter tang comes along. No hint of hop flavor, just this kind of metallic bitterness.
I guess if you're going to drink a blonde this is better than some, but I would drink it cold and fast. From the 12 oz bottle bought at H and H Beverages in Abilene.

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.

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.
