Very Good
Notes: Pouring a beautifully striking bright gold color with a creamy white head, Central Artery displays a wonderfully vibrant nose balancing malty aromas of freshly baked, flour dusted rolls and lightly toasted barley with a gentle noble hop profile of dried wildflowers. Cleanly fermented, the palate follows the nose closely with pleasantly sweet notes of kneaded biscuit dough and bread crust. Refreshing and quenchable with a light rounded body, fully reserved level of bitterness and soft, drying finish, Central Artery proudly honors this classic Bavarian style as the signature house lager of our own beer garden.

Golden body edging towards bronze. Good clarity. Long lasting eggshell head.

Aroma and taste of toasted white bread, cracker, grains. Not picking up much fruit, like grape or lemon. Tasty malt all the way. Light kiss of bitterness.

Clean, crisp, damn drinkable.

Great bronze clear body with healthy head on pour. Really nice and toasty malt. Love how trillium is showing that they know how to dick around and get a triple double in lagers too. Awesome beer

Poured from a 16 oz can into a pint glass. Canned on 5/15. Translucent golden color with fluffy white head that slowly recedes. Effervescent. Bread, malt, and wheat in the nose. Bready flavors- grain and barley. Clean, smooth mouthfeel and finish on the palate. Glad I cracked this one open for some BBQ’ing outside today. Refreshing and solid. Worth a try when looking for something to enjoy outside on a nice day.

Canned 05/15/19. Trillium made a proper Helles?! Sign me up! Very traditional with this beer, nothing special...just consistent and spot-on for the style. Clean, crisp, and delicious. Lots of tasty grain, bread, and a touch of hops in the finish. This is how I would imagine a Helles tastes in Germany. For a brewery that emphasizes hoppy, sour, and fruit beers, this is solid!
