From the pint can, it pours a clear yellow color with a large white head. Scent is bready with some light spiciness. Taste follows nose. Nice brew!

Great hops - work really well with the style. Easy to drink but plenty of flavor.

Clear and bright body, golden in hue; excellent carbonation; thick and creamy white head; well-formed rings of foam step down the glass. Light and delicate aroma; bready; softly floral with a bit of light herbal notes. Well-rounded flavor combining elements of biscuit and mineral-like hop bitterness; very clean. Medium-light body; crisp with a light malt warmth; a bit dry overall yet still wets the palate nicely.

This is a beautiful helles, sometimes delicate in nature but still packing some exceptional flavor and sensory delights.

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and lots of thick lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of biscuity and bready malts and green grapes are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of green grapes along with underlying notes of grassy hops and biscuit malts.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is hoppier and fruitier than I would have expected for a Helles Lager, but it is easy to drink.

Serving type: can

A: Pours a crystal clear pale to medium golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and faint medium yellow + bright yellow colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall sudsy foamy bright white head that quickly reduces to a small to medium sized patch of very thin film covering slightly less than 25% of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of bready + pale + grainy malts with a light amount of grainy sweetness. Light to moderate aromas of spicy + earthy hops. Hints of sulfur.

T: Upfront there are slightly stronger than moderate flavors of bready + pale + grainy malts with a light amount of grainy sweetness. That is followed by a slight hint of sulfur. Finally there are light flavors of spicy + earthy hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which slowly fades away.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp initially with a clean finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a pleasantly clean finish. Enjoyable with the flavors and aromas that I expect for the style and just enough sweetness without having too much.
