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.

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.

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.
