A - Very slight haze, with minimal pinpoint carbonation rising through the glass. Fluffy bone white head tops the beer.

S - Definitely smells very lagery. faint soda cracker malt up front leads to s slightly more pronounced pale malt leading into a barely rounded center before fading into a lasting aroma of European hops. Hops reminds me of a slightly floral version of fresh cut grass.

T - Starts off with a promising rounded quality. Soda cracker malt and a faint, hard to describe juicy quality. Beer flavored fruit gusher, maybe? This gives way too quickly to a dry finish that's a little too lasting.

O - Overall, not as satisfying as I had hoped. What the Helles has qualities that would otherwise make for a refreshing, enjoyable lager. Here, they just don't quite mesh together in a fashion I can enjoy.

473mL can, pac'd JUN 14 2018. Thanks to my cousin, Kris, for bringing me some Canadian craft! Golden pour, nice and clear, bubbly white head fizzles down to a layer of bubbles. Aroma is pale nutty grain, honey, and grassy hops. Nice subtle nutty Munich and pale malt base with earthy & grassy hops. Lighter body, lively carbonation, clean finish. Overall, not too bad in my opinion. Quite refreshing on a hot summer day.

Pours a clear straw yellow with a two finger bubbly head. Good retention and nice lacing.

Not much on the nose, slight presence of malts and hops. Flavours are very mellow but reminiscent of corn and a touch on the sweet side. Drying with a clean finish.

355ml can with a date of Nov 29 2016 ink stamped on bottom of can. Not the freshest but should not be hurt too badly. Slightly hazy gold color with a finger of head that settles quickly. Looks almost like soda pop carbonation with its many large bubbles. Aroma of grains with a slight vegetal quality like celery. A little DMS perhaps. Flavor of pale malt with some grassy hops. Not completely clean tasting as some off flavors sneak in at the finish. A little sweet so it is not the most refreshing beer. Carbonation is off. It was so lively in the pour that it sounded like soda, now half way through the glass, it is lifeless.
