12oz brown bottle.

Pale golden hue, lacing stays around long enough. Hint of buttery yeast, faint sulphur as well with a semi-clean graininess in the nose. Just enough crispness, a bit more body than needed. Odd sweetness, faint fruitiness and buttery tone. Somewhat balanced but not enough to make it super drinkable. A decent lager but it need to be cleaned up a bit, a tad dryer as well.

Not a destination beer by any stretch, yet a satisfying quaff on a hot summer's day sitting on the back porch at Ram's Head in Severn.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a rich golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, grains. Taste is crisp, grains, malts, touch of sweetness, highly drinkable. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall a good thirst quencher.

This Helles lager misses a lot of marks. Not recommended.
