Notes: Invisible Touch, our brand new Helles-style lager, is a smooth, touch of sweet beauty for this grey sky day. Notes of biscuits, honeysuckle blossom, and wildflower honey accompanied by a perfect round and pillowy mouthfeel.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Canned 2021/02/16
Pours a frothy 1 finger head with moderate retention, light foamy lacing, mostly clear slight haze straw color

Nose plenty of lager malt, grainy cereal blond malt, little corn with the grainy sweet pilsner malt, just a touch of grassy hop

Taste brings some herbal hops up front, med to lighter bitterness, light grainy sweet malt, straw, hint of corn pilsner malt again, hops turning a little spicy and grassy late, dry crisp bitter finish, a spicy European pilsner finish

Mouth is med bod, soft lager, higher frothy carb

Overall like a nice European pilsner, but some American lager as well, nice overall

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Can dated 02/16/21 into a nonic pint.

L: Straw yellow with 2 fingers of low-density frothy white head with good retention and left limited spotted lacing.

A: Cereal grains and bisquity malt out front, floral and grassy elements hiding underneath.

T: Follows nose well but with more hop prominence. Finishes with moderate bitterness and slight acidity, acidity lingers a bit and drys the palate.

F: Low-medium bodied with medium-high carbonation, tongue tingles from the carbonation/acidity, slick on the swallow.

O: A bit high on the carbonation, but I otherwise really liked it! Just on the spendier side to be a frequent purchase.

Great helles. Bready and green floral aroma. It's all clean toasty barley upfront followed by mild spicy and cracked peppercorn hops for a balanced, semi-dry finish. Bit more hop character than usual for a helles, but it doesn't dominate the malt. I want more.

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high bright white head that died down and left lots of specks of bubbles on the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of honeysuckle are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has some flavors of honeysuckle along underlying hints of biscuity malts.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a bit clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found that the aromas and flavors of honeysuckle in this lager to be a pleasant touch, which also added a bit of complexity. The beer was quite easy to drink.

This one pours a mostly clear golden yellow color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like honey malt, sweet floral hops, and biscuits.

This is a good malt vehicle, as a good helles should be - there's a light honey sweetness, but mostly bready crusty goodness, along with seemingly the right amount of grassy hop character.

This is light bodied, clean, and super crisp and drinkable. It does exactly what it should be doing.

I'm honestly incredibly impressed with the lager game Grimm has been playing lately. I care about this stuff much more than I care about whatever new IPA or whether or not Tesseract is coming back out.

16oz canned 3/23/20, opened 4/24/20.
2 finger white head with amazing retention. Straw golden with a slight chill haze. Early thick lacing left as the head slowly fades. More lace follows. Good looking beer.
Bready malt and a perfume of floral and slightly spicy hops. Sulfur and mineral.
Clean and lightly sweet, grain/bready malt followed by grass and hay hop flavors.
Soft mouthfeel, light body, medium plus carbonation.
Light sweetness in the beginning but finishes off dry and leaves me wanting more.
Very good.
This is a 4 pint in a session drinking beer.

5-2-20 Can #2 is fantastic and confirms the strong rating!
