Brightly clear, light golden dulled yellow color with a thin white frothed cap that faded off quickly.
Smell has a nice crisp and clean herbal essence with a soft, fresh bread roll dough. Quite nice, a firm crispness and sweet doughy breading for its nose, which really comes together as it warms.
Taste is a nice crisp and clean hop, some dried herbal variants float around that are light and airy with a nice and firm bread dough sweetish malt backing. Totally reminds me of the dough used for white bread rolls or cresent rolls.
Feel is a bit lighter on the body but the super clean, super crispness makes up for the lack there of. Kinda sweet and very smooth, quick crispness at first with a lightly dry breadish souring finish thats nice. A pretty darn good Helles thats easy, clean, crisp, and drinkably good. Yum.

Old review
.5l bottle I got in Brewery mixed pack. Poured into the Weizen glass that came with the mixed pack, imagine that.

A: Poured a beautiful golden yellow, this is the epitome of gold. Had a huge white head that had some some serious creaminess. Disipated down to a nice top cap that had some beautiful sticky lacing.

S: Aroma is off grassy, earthy hops, malt, mild citrus, and some sweet bready notes.

T: Taste is a sweet bready malt, earthy hops, citrus, and slight taste of banana nut bread. Very nice.

M: Creamy, light to medium in body, a touch of hop aftertaste. Really goes down easy.

D: This beer goes down easier than my date on prom night. Easy drinking brew that has amazing flavor and still refreshes. This is a good plain drinking brew on any day. Happy day.

Pours a golden straw color with a thick two finger head that disappears rather quickly. Active carbonation, always a head presence, with decent lacing.

Aromas of a grassy nature, along with honey and lemons. Clean and crisp.

Taste is of sweet malts at first, with grain and biscuit notes quickly to follow. Just a bit bitter and tart into the finish, along with a mild dryness.

Medium in body, with a pleasant smoothness to it. Good carbonation.

I like this alot. Nice low ABV, session-able, enjoyable, clean and refreshing-an excellent thirst quencher. If ever in the mood for more than a few beers, I just may reach for this...
