I wish BA made it easier to compare one's past reviews of same style in order to be "fair". This is one of the best, freshest, most refreshing, USA Helles I have tried, along with Carton "This Town". While perfected in Germany, for freshness best to drink Helles local.

A: Pours a bright golden color with a slight haze. White, bright, pinpoint head leaves some lace. Retention is good.

S: Lemony bread, biscuit, crackers, floral, grassy hops. Pilsner malt is apparent, with a strong, excellent aroma.

T: Follows smell .Lemon cake pilsner malts, bread and more citrus rind, followed by subtle, herbal, spicy, leafy, hops. Plenty of long, dry refreshing feel in the finish.

F: Light bodied, well carbonated. Great mouth feel.

O: A refreshing fresh, aromatic Helles. One of the best in US.
