pours very clear, even though event says unfiltered, straw yellow with a touch of gold. Half finger white head.

Smells of light pilsner malt with fruit sweetness.

Taste is on the sweeter side. Fruit juice, white grapes predominately. Floral and grassy hops. Slight pleasant bitterness. I get cereal-like flavors too on the back end.

Light bodied and extremely crisp. High carbonation cleanses the palate. Fizzy and lively. Grape juice sweetness lingers somewhat.

Really impressed with this lager. Never had a Helles style but this is really good. Light and clean with nice blend of flavors. Carries a lot more than some other one dimensional lagers that just showcase pilsner malt.

Hazed pale straw with a thin bone white head. Smells clean with pale malt, tea like and floral hops. Pale crisp malt flavor with some floral hops up front. sweetness comes out midway with a grainy, vegetal finish. Mouthfeel is light with low carbonation. Overall very solid but I'd take a Hans' Pils over this anyday.

Nice Summer beer - goes right along with my Summer staples, Fireman's 4, Devil's Backbone, and good 'ol Lone Star!

A: Pours a clear straw yellow color. A massive white head forms with infinite retention and lacing all the way down.
S: Cereal grains up front. Lightly fruity, and green tea like hops. Enjoyable, if not exceptional.
T: Cereal grains up front again, then quickly becomes a little sweet. Grassy, leafy green hops. Though not really any finish. The flavor just kind of vanishes to nothing.
M/O: A light body and really soft carbonation. I like soft/fine carbonation for the style, but it seems a little light even for the style. Not hard to drink. This will be a good summer afternoon drink, though not exceptional.

A nice Helles Lager (don't know why this was added as a Dortmunder, it is pretty obvious what style they are going for). I will certainly enjoy this, but not one of Real Ale's better Brewers Cut. Above average for sure, though maybe to subtle, even for me.
