Look - very clear light/pale yellow/gold. Carbonation is quite low
Smell - not much aroma - some bread / light malt - some slight peppery hops
Taste - much more flavor than anticipated based on lack of aroma. Slight sweetness - nice yeast and biscuit flavors
Feel - quite flat - carbo leaves quickly and not very interesting
Overall - good crisp Helles - not the most flavorful and lacking in aroma, but would be a great refreshing beer on a hot day - a good Lawnmower Beer

On-tap @ Falling Rock Tap House in Denver, CO.

Pale gold color and briliantly clear. Small white head that gets helped along by strong carbonation. Mildly sweet grainy malt aroma with grassy hops. Well balanced flavor but nothing really stands out. Medium-light bodied and very dry.

Easy drinking enough but far from a top notch Helles lager. This got overshadowed by the fantastic Bierstadt Slow Pour Pils I had right before it.

12 oz. bottle poured into willibecher.

A- Straw in color, and crystal clear brilliance. Head is white and solid, and a little foamy in texture. Retention is good along with some decent lacing.

S- Bitey noble hops, earthy, grassy and spicy. Malt is a a light toasty and grainy.

T- Flavor a little more floral. Light grain sweetness.

M- Finish is crisp, with a mild earthy-bitter linger on the back of the tongue.

O- Pretty good example of a German lager. Hop character is nice.

Tivoli beer is as old as Denver itself, and with such a storied history it would be wonderful to have the beer restored in a way true to its original character. The owners of the brewery have implemented an authentic recipe of the old Tivoli Helles Lager which went out of production for roughly half a century.

Appearance: a very gold colored lager. Looks nice and clear in a glass
Aroma: Faint malt aromas, nothing special, but appropriate for the style
Taste: Very light, subtle malt sweetness, with little to no hop bitterness. Very drinkable texture and mouthfeel.

Overall: While this beer may not stand to amaze anyone, it is a very solid example of the style and has a wide-appeal. The german ingredients and brewing process are very evident in this super drinkable lager.

Summer in a glass. Easy drinking, perfect for a lazy afternoon. Golden, grassy, floral, not spectacular nor memorable, but that's the unassuming loveliness of the style.

Light yellow body; lots of fine carbonation; thick, frothy, white head. Malty, light cereal grain aroma. Light grain flavors; crystal malt sweetness; light hop bitterness. Medium body; medium sweetness in the finish.

A very fine, malty flavored beer yet with a lager smoothness that should satisfy most folks looking for a mild, tasty lager.
