A very nice run of the mill Pilsner like Helles, very clean yellow body with bubbly foamy white head which dies down quickly. Typical nose for the style, good but nothing outstanding. Same with the taste, standard stock, very acceptable and safe. Slight hint of sweetness. Slight dry malts and modest sweetness in the aftertaste. Decent but expensive at $12.99 for a 6-pack.

Pours crystal clear straw-gold with a medium head that dissipates fairly quickly and didn't leave lacing. Nose is clean, fresh grain, and slight noble hops in the background. Taste is also clean, slightly sweet grain. Crisp mouthfeel. Overall, a solid beer that is simple, clean, and crushable, but doesn't really stand out anywhere.
Edit...have tried several times since the initial review, and I feel this one deserves a bit of a bump. Appearance, including great lacing was evident on most bottles, and the flavor is spot on for the style.

11.2 oz bottle.

Pours pale gold, almost straw color, and crystal clear. The head is strong at first, but fizzles out pretty quickly. Clean malt aroma with just enough grassy hops for balance. Very soft and clean malt flavor. Carbonation is lively and spritzy, causing it too feel too light in the finish.

Not my favorite Helles but I'll have to find it on-tap somewhere and give it another shot.

Refreshing, crisp helles lager, this one is enjoyable in the summer. Still this is not a complex brew nor one I'd return to. Quite malty but a bit watery

Poured 0.5l bottle into a Willi becher glass.

A: The beer is pale goleden in color with brilliant clarity. Pours with a two finger high foamy white head, which quickly disspiates, but leaves some lacing. Low-to-medium carbonation is visible in the glass.

S: Very fresh notes of grassy hops and grainy malts.

T: Follows the nose. Very clean and fresh. Perfect balance between subtly sweet malts and grassy hops.

M: Light bodied, crisp and smooth. Moderate carbonation on the palate.

O: Refreshing and very drinkable. Excellent Helles lager.

12 oz bottle: brilliantly clear, little or no head, no lacing; malty aroma and taste, soft medium-low body with spot-on carbonation; finish is very pleasant smooth malty character. Very quaff-able if a bit pricey. Although I'm sure it's better when fresh and on tap in Bavaria it is still a finer example of a Helles than most (foreign or domestic).
