Refreshing summer beer. Drinking it at Fat Daddy's Smokehouse on Maui. Good beer in this setting. Not enough of a standout to seek it out, but it's OK when the taplist is a little shy.

Perfect session beer any time of year. It smooth with just a punch of flavor to keep things interesting.

A: The beer is clear light straw yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high bright white head that quickly died down, leaving a thin film of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass. The head eventually faded away, leaving only a webbing of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of cracker malts are present in the nose along with notes of fruits—white grapes seem to stand out in particular.
T: The taste has flavors of cracker malts along with some notes of bready malts and hints of grapes. Faint amounts of bitterness are perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and relatively clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The aromas and flavors of grapes make this seem more like a kolsch compared to a helles lager, but in any event it is a nice and easy to drink American representation of a German beer.

Interesting and clean helles lager. Taste is of grass, honey, and slight tropical fruit which differentiates itself from others in the style. Not bad, but one that I will likely not pick up again.
