On-tap at Trap Rock Restaurant & Brewery, Berkeley Heights, NJ

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that died down, leaving a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of bready and buttery malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell, but seems to be more buttery. A slight amount of bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This Munich Helles Lager is very bright and buttery. It is an interesting twist on the style.

The standard "please the masses" light offering found at every brew pub... light straw yellow, clean in appearance. Scent brings a touch of honey like sweetness to slightly stale grain, stale grassy hop presence as well. Taste follows suit. Light and bubbly. Fairly straightforward.
