It is unfortunate for Buoy to be in the news for reasons other than their beer, so I thought now would be a great time to talk about just their beer.
The Helles is has a nose that is a bit too subtle for my tastes but it is reminiscent of sourdough bread! So I like that. There’s also a small whiff of that old school lager hop funk that reminds me of Dad beers.
The middle has a pleasant sweetness from the malt which sticks around even after the finish. That isn’t bad though: the finish is sharply crisp with it’s bubbles and that means that the maltier elements help ease me out of it.
Quality beer for anytime but especially going into summer.
