Pours a clear pale gold, soapy white head, dots of lace down the glass. Smell: floral, mildly grassy, a bit grainy and doughy, white grape. Taste: white grape, spicy, mildly grassy, cracker back, a little nectarine. Light-plus body, fairly crisp with a nice hoppy finish. The tweaks to Hotter Than Helles were for the best it seems... pencil this in as a go-to American made German lager.
