Poured from a bottle to a pint
A - Classic golden, indistinguishable from any other lager with a quickly disappearing foamy head
S - Bread malt and grassy hop
T - Well balanced, fits the style and the smell
M - Smooth
O - A good Bavarian helles, this is a good choice to discover the style!

Serving: .5L bottle into mason jar
Served: 16 Sept 2016

Appearance: Pours a crystal clear yellow color crowned by a glorious soapy white head that sticks around with gusto. Some soft carbonations seen percolating up through the beer.

Smell: Noble hop aromas- soft spiciness and some green notes, subtle assertions of grass and pepper. Sweet malts and traditional 'beery' smells.

Taste: Excellent flavor- really nice malts with just the right amount of sweetness and typical biscuity notes. Good hop bitterness and subtle hop flavors, largely of the same quality described in the nose.

Mouthfeel: Robust body, perfect for the style.

Overall: A marvelous lager and one that everyone should seek out.

Beer tastes good. Almost the best beer I have ever had. It goes down good and leaves a nice aftertaste.
