Nice lager on a hot day, my choice of top class lawn mower beer or after downing a plate of hot wings. Crispy and tangy, goes down frighteningly easy

Clear, light yellow. Crisp, citrusy, light. A bit watery. Not bad.

Fairly pedestrian lager beer, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. It hits all the notes you'd expect, is clean & crisp, maybe a bit thin on the mouthfeel but that is really the only negative, outside of its anonymous taste profile.

Great beer. If I see this on tap then its a must buy. Locally I only know of 2 places that carry it on tap. I have purchased it in bottle but It seems to not do it for me.

Overall I highly recommend this one. Great starter if you arrive late and want to catch up to your friends lame-o beers lol.

Served cold from 500ml brown bottle into straight pilsner mug.

L) Light to medium bright golden colour, clear, lots and lots of bubbles, 1cm dense white head. Looks a quality lager.

S) Slightly sweet yeasty munich malt. Appetising.

T) Very clean taste, the maltiness isn't as pronounced as some other Helles and there is a bit of hop bitterness that his nearer the front of the mouth than some other Helles. I like it, it has it's own distinct taste. There is a bit of toffee malt aftertaste.

F) Pleasantly light and fizzy, there is a bit of bitterness that detracts very slightly from the refreshment.

O) Very good Helles from a big brewery; stands up well to comparison against other Helles. Will buy it again if I see it.

Poured from the tap at Otto's in Willow Grove, PA. The appearance is a clear gold color with a white head. The aroma was full of malt with some yeast. The taste matched the aroma and had a very smooth palate.
