Pours like a domestic lager.
Smells of breadiness, and slight hop.
The amount of breadiness of a Helles Lager is a little lighter than I like, and the hop bite is a little much, but still a good Helles.
Very light, crisp, and refreshing offering.

Pours a clear, gold color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of strong pale malt, hint of hop, and a hint of yeast. Fits the style of a Munich Helles Lager. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong pale malt, hint of hops, hint of sweet malt, and a hint of yeast. Overall, better than average MHL, but nothing outstanding.

Pale, hazy and golden. The beer has a thin white head, and an ready, malt forward smell the taste is soft, slightly sweet, and malty, with a light herbal hop flavor. Medium body. Good.
