Pours a bright golden amber with one and a half finger head, decent retention, some lacing, crystal clear.

Aroma of bready malt, light toastiness, floral grassy hops, earthy.

Taste is light and crisp, bready, crackery malt with some light toast. Hops are light with slight bitterness, grassy, floral, and earthy.

Light to medium body, crisp, smooth, good soft carbonation. Easy drinking.

Overall it's a good Munich Helles. Light, crisp, tasty, and easy drinking. Kind of wishing it came in six pack 12oz cans rather than 16oz 4 packs.

Great Helles style lager on draught at Bull Feenys in Portland Maine.
It's got it all. Nice clear golden body. Perfect head. Lovely lacing. Easily drinkable with great balance. Excellent nose and mouthfeel.
