Poured a pale crystal yellow with a one finger white fizzy head that disappeared quickly. Sweet grain aroma. The taste is mild; grass, cracker and honey. Medium body and carbonation. Overall, this seems more like an American AL rather than the typical Munich Helles Lager. For the price, I would rather have an American lager.

A light golden brew, at first I noticed a hoppy bitter flavor, followed by a honey-like sweetness. A light bubbly feel and a faint sweet aroma finish the experience.

This is decent, though more of a Premium/Export Lager than a Helles.
It can't really hide it's industrial character.

The ratings on this beer are very confusing to me? Poured out of a green bottle, so a bit of skunky silver on the nose, and again in the aftertaste. As good of a beer as I have had in a green bottle, but still...
