look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a...well, golden color. Moderate to vigorous carbonation. Two fingers bleached head. Slight haze. Good retention, good lacing.

S: Crackery malt, akin to saltine. Some sulphur like compounds, bit of lemon. Floral and grassy.

T: Subdued hop presence. Tastes old...looking for an expiration....best by 11/13. Damn. Given how far breweries stretch the shelf life, this beer could be a year old. No off flavors, but definitely faded. Still, hoppiness does come through a bit. Straw, bit of sweet grains. Hops are floral and slightly herbal.

M: Very smooth. Carbonation is subtle for the style and this one goes back easily.

O: Probably damn good fresh. Will have to try it again at some point.

A - bright golden color, very light. White foam, 2 fingers, nice carbonation bubbles.

S- the hops overpower the smell, which is not overly strong. Definitely the week point of the beer

T - As a Export beer, a very good taste. Light hops with a hint of vanilla. The beginning is rather sweet and the end has a little bitterness, though not unpleasant.

M-very light and smooth, a slight tingle with a medium-to-light body.

O-A simple beer, but very well made. One of the better exports I've had.

A beautiful, sweet-malty helles with a full body, and the taste never fades. Rated to style.

A: The beer is clear golden yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger and a half high bright white head that gradually died down, leaving a large patch of bubbles in the center, a collar around the edge and lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of bready malts and noble hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste is dominated by flavors of bready malts with hints of sweetness. No hops are perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has nice malty flavors that taste true to the style but seems like it could use a little more hops to balance things out.
