Pours a hazy gold color. 1/5 inch head of an off-white color. Poor retention and poor lacing. Smells of citrus hops, slight honey, pale malt, slight sweet malt, slight floral, and a hint of lemongrass. Fits the style of a Munich Helles Lager. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. There is also a hint of dryness. Tastes of citrus hops, slight honey, pale malt, slight sweet malt, slight floral, and a hint of lemongrass. Overall, subtle with a good blend and feel.

From a can stamped 04/26/2017. Sampled November 7, 2017.

The pour is moderately cloudy looking light amber with a short-lasting white foamy head.

The aroma brings out esters of sweet barley Euro-malt, grass, mild spice, and butterscotch.

The body is light to medium but it seems creamy and smooth.

The taste emphasizes a spiciness that follows the sweet grainy malt base. It ends fairly clean and crisp. It might have been better closer to its release date but it definitely maintained the elements of the style. Easy to drink.

12 ounce can.

It pours a clear pale gold with an impressive head of foam and lacing.

Smells of grain, sweet malt, hints of cirrus and bread.

Big bready notes, very grainy, light citrus, only mildly sweet.

Medium body with the carbonation on the mild side.

Good beer.

12oz can - a brew made that benefits students studying Fermentation Science at Oregon State University. And supposedly good to drink whilst in a hot tub.

This beer pours a slightly hazy, medium golden yellow colour, with three fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and chunky off-white head, which leaves a bit of roiling wavecrest lace around the glass as it slowly but surely abates.

It smells of bready and crackery pale malt, lightly toasted white biscuits, a wee pome fruitiness, and some understated earthy, leafy, and grassy green hop bitters. The taste is gritty and grainy pale malt, saltine crackers, subtle honey, a touch of apple/pear skin, and more easy-going leafy, weedy, and floral noble hoppiness.

The carbonation is adequate in its palate-supporting frothiness, the body a solid middleweight, and generally smooth, with a nice aerosol creaminess evolving as things warm up a tad (even more reason to pop one of these in the Jacuzzi!). It finishes off-dry, the malt still large and in charge.

Overall, this is a more or less well-rendered version of the style, with just enough crispness to pull it all off. Tasty, refreshing, and worthy of the cause (more fermentation!) it promotes. I recommend checking it out, even if, sadly, like me, you don't have ready access to a hot tub.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a rich golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is sweet and malty. Taste is toasted malts, light hops are present, just a touch of sweetness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a highly refreshing beer on this hot summer night.

Poured a crystal-clear, golden yellow color with a one-finger, head of bubbly foam. It smelled of grains, caramel and toffee. Nice sweet caramel taste with a subtle bitterness.

A brilliant golden pour with a thick almost two finger bone white head that sticks like glue to my pokal,what a nice pour.Fresh grains and herbal/grassy hops come thru nicely in the nose,likely the most brash helles nose I have come across.The feel is a little thin even for the style in my opinion.Toasted grains stand out the most on the palate,a pretty good dose of 'green garden'-like hops play a big role as well.This is a damn fine lager,too hoppy for a helles lager...yeah but I like it.
