Tastes very good.
Sweet for a lager.

THis is a good one, a yellow gold color with a head about a half inch off the gold. Oddly enough, I sensed a sweet corn aroma with some malt. Tastes involve sweetness, probably honey, grape, corn and grass. A great feeling going down, a real winner.

Light straw appearance with lighter white head and definitely carbonated. Pleasant aroma slightly fruity. Taste is very mild and smooth with a slight fruity accent.

Beautiful thick head with fast rising bubbles. Gorgeous. Tons of grains. Not much complexity. Crisp and clean. Awesome pairing for a niceness day on Hawaii.

Yellow gold with a thin white head.

Bready malty aromas with sweet kettle corn.

Taste is corn, grass, sweet honey, bread, and white grape.

Tingly feel.

On tap at the source. Clear golden straw color with a thick white head. Bright bready aroma with floral noble hoppy notes. Malt forward on the taste as expected with plenty of white bread and dough. A little biscuit. Floral hops in the back. Very nice.

On draught into a tall glass. Yellow gold colour and clear behind the thick condensation. The one finger, loose head reduced to a 3mm cap within a minute despite the high carbonation.

Smell is American adjunct.

Taste is light. Like a euro style lager without any metallic off-notes and only a hint of grain.

Feel is gassy, medium to light body, with a hint of bitterness.

I get no sense this is a helles. There isn't that sharp, clean taste and body that I'd expect. Nor is it a blonde ale. This is a reasonable but unexceptional lager.
