32oz growler, sample from the brewery.

Aside from the slight haze this is a great looking brew. Just enough crispness and stays clean throughout. Hint of malt sweetness, toasted graininess, and soft herbal hop in the nose and on the palate. Extremely drinkable, obviously very well put together.

On tap at the brewery. Really good, clean, German-style lager. Pours a clear light gold. Upon tasting, I think this beer is mis-categorized - it is not of the strength and body to be an Export Helles. Tastes vaguely like a Helles and German Pils. Clean malt flavor with a nice crackery, bready taste. Mild hop flavor of grass / slight spice, but very appropriate. Perfect fermentation and lagering from what I can see. This is a nice, easy-drinking yet flavorful lager. I’m surprised by the lower rating for this beer.

Appearance: Extremely gold as the color suggests. There is a little white lacing that sticks to the glass. The gold, hay color of the beer is crystal clear.

Smell: Noble hops, and a slight sweet bread from the malt. Nice.

Taste: Perfectly crisp. There is a little flowery, floral flavor, just barely detectable next to the malt.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, clean, and lagered to perfection for that flowery soft mouthfeel.

Overall: Excellent beer. Probably my favorite of Confluence's "Flagship beers." An example of how great a simple beer can be.
