Fresh as Helles by Sam Adams

Time for a nice Helles Bock.  Sam Adams’ Fresh as Helles poured a perfect nice light gold color.  Poured from the bottle into a Sam Adams glass, the head kept nicely and laced all the way down.  On the nose was citrus with orange leading the way.  Watching the carbonation flow up made the mouth water for the first sip.  Malty and citrus lead the way to a very slight hoppy finish.  A light medium mouthfeel keeps the beer from being overly filling.  The Helles Bock beer came about as the German version of the Czech Pils but with a more malty flavor.  Definitely a beer I would have again.
