Served on-draught into a taster glass at Lost Abbey's taproom. Cost was $1.00 USD. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a half finger beige colour head of some cream, nice thickness, and fair retention. Colour is a clear yellow. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Pale malts, clean malts, lactose, clean barley, some spice, and straw.

T: Clean barley forms the body. Straw. Clean malts. Pleasant refreshing lactose. Crisp. Definitely a helles; I like it, but it's simple. Subtle for the style - just as you'd expect from Lost Abbey. A tasty little lager.

Mf: Smooth, clean, and wet. Suits the flavours near perfectly. Slight rough coarseness drags the flavour out in the second act. Good carbonation.

Dr: Very drinkable. I could down this one all night. A refreshing enjoyable little helles. Well priced as well. This would be a good one to get a keg of for a party, and it's one hell of a session brew, but it's too simple for me to want to enjoy again. Still, I'm glad I tried it and it's impressive what they've done with the style. Another solid offering from Lost Abbey.

On-tap at Beachwood BBQ,

A: Pours a clear golden yellow with a soapy white head, solid retention.

S: Bready malt, some noble hop character, light.

T: Fairly hoppy for a Helles, pratically Pils-like. Malt is mild, hops bring a lot of grassy and earthy flavours.

M: Crisp, semi-clean, light-bodied.

D: A solid Helles though it has been Americanized a bit, but a good choice on a hot day. Weird that this style is coming out of The Lost Abbey.
