32oz Crowler canned at the brewery 12-8-18
1" white head with decent retention...ends up as a solid cap after 3-4 minutes. Golden, clean, brilliant lager with a continual carbonation stream.
Very alluring sweet and bready in the aroma. A bit of a noble and hay.
Wonderful bready malt flavor and a touch of spicy hop late. Elegant but not delicate. A match for any fare.
Light to medium body, south of medium carbonation. Soft mouthfeel and a dry finish.
This is a delicious beer, maybe good I don't have easy access to it but it would be a regular in the fridge and maybe even would need a keg of it.

Clear yellow color with a lot of rising bubbles. Thin white head. Spicy, earthy hop profile. Biscuit malt finish. Fits the bill for a beer you want a few of while at a concert.

a well made helles lager here, i thought all the pale lagers i had in here were very good, and they offer a fair few of them, lots of beat the heat types of beers in here, and this is a good one, although for its low alcohol and dry grain character, it does have a little bit of body to it, especially for the style, but its not at all a turn off for me, and this stays really drinkable throughout. the yeast is what makes this stand out to me, its the classic german flavor, but fresher than it ever tastes in the imports, not tired and dropped out yet, despite this being clear and well refined visually and texturally, the yeast has a lot of character. less hoppy than their rocket 100, but more grain flavor to me, which is european in nature and just a touch sweet. helles is simple beer by nature, and this is simple beer, its well made and there is nowhere to hide flaws, and there arent any. none of the beer we had in here was overly inventive (an apple sour was the closest they came to that), but all of them were professionally done and really drinkable and satisfying. a very solid and classic helles here.

2.75/5  rDev -27.4%

A: Pours a dull, slightly chilled hazed yellow color. A two finger white head forms, and recedes in a second. Light lace.
S: Buttery malt, biscuit malts, and cereal grains. That is it. The diacetyl like buttery malts only build as this warms.
T: Again, I get plenty of buttered popcorn and cereal grains. Some dry cracker like flavors, and that is it.
M/D: A light body with moderate carbonation. Not as crisp and clean as I would like. Not particularly hard to drink, but the simple nature of the beer, and diacetyl make it so I am not coming back to this often.

A simple lager, that shows off a small flaw IMO. I get to much buttery malt/popcorn flavor to enjoy this.

Clear golden pour with a minimal white head. Malt, grain and yeast dominate the flavor with bread and biscuit tastes. Has a nice floral and grassy hop presence towards the end that balances things out for a crisp finish.
