Yep, I’m into it. Lower ratings than I would have thought, but Raul don’t care. This one is rock solid like that place in Scotland (or is it Ireland?) that has wild stone faces scattered about. Stone Hedge. Yeah, see? Raul went to school. He don’t need google. Anyway, this one is just right down the line like John Wayne lassoing a cow in “Red River.”

Get it, and get it good!

Traded for this a while ago as the date on the bottom of the can read 3/26/18. Yeah, I took a while to get around to this but this held up well over the last year and a half and was a good example of what a German Helles should be. This was perfect for a freakishly warm night such as the one that we're having here in late September!

Of course, this had a clear and golden hue to it that was quite radiant when held up to the light. Plenty of bubbly head topped it off but it settled unevenly and there wasn't any lacing left on the side of my pint glass as I worked my way through this. Lots of bread, German hops, sulfur, urine, and sweetness in the nose as the taste contained cereal and some grainy spice that gave this a taste that one would expect from a beer of this sort. Plenty of carbonation, moderate slickness, and an underlying skunky aftertaste rounded things out as this beer fully warmed up.

Not a lot of booze here as this was so easy to drink and savor, because of how it tasted and how different it was different from what I was accustomed to. This has BATCH #00245 written on the side of the can and the colorful label was in line with how full this beer was. While this may not be a cup of tea for a hard-core imbiber, this deserved it's ranking on here and was good enough to have me looking for more examples of this style - if they could be readily found...

16 FL. OZ. can
Served in a pokal glass

This beer pours a brilliant golden color and is topped with two inches of off white head that leaves spotty lacing.

The smell is grain with floral hops.

The taste is light grain and floral hops. Mild bitterness

Medium mouthfeel

This is a light, crisp, easy drinking beer. Well crafted

Poured a clear straw gold body with great head and lace retention. The aroma is grainy, dry and clean like a proper lager should have. Crisp, clean, light body with that distinct lager type flavor but unlike most American lagers that pale in comparison to German lagers this one has an American edge w/ more hops but also adds a touch of sweetness and avoids becoming overly hopper or watery/thin (the balance is just right).
