On tap at Hop Daddy’s, easygoing pilsner-malted/ Saaz-Hallertau-hopped Bavarian-styled golden lager stays delicately dry. Yeasty sourdough breading gains skunky grain-hopped musk (and slight cabbage patch) and mild lemon-seeded grassy hop bittering above biscuity pale malt base.
On tap at Ambulance, dry helles lager pits dewy pilsner malts against grassy-hopped herbal musk and distant lemon rot.

Indifferent Helles lager lets dry sourdough-breaded pale malting top laidback orange-peeled grapefruit and tangerine desiccation. In the recess, astringent leafy hop residue contrasts withering honeyed cherry-berry sweetness. Needs firmer stylistic distinction and conviction.
On tap at Ambulance, decent dry-hopped pale-yellowed moderation needs more pronounced helles bock features.

Extremely popular Dead Guy Helles Bock soaked in Dead Guy Whiskey Barrels retains soft-toned oaken vanilla buttering, creamy sugared malting and tangy orange spicing. Dry rye whiskey sedation soaks into brown-sugared grain malting as well as caramel, toffee, almond and coconut undertones.
On tap at Ambulance, muskily dry helles lager coalesces raw-honeyed maize, wet-grained cellar mustiness and herbal hop spicing embed sour yellow fruiting to gummy sourdough base. Horse-blanketed straw, hay and alfalfa rusticity deepens finishing acridity.
