Rancho Lager by Garage Brewing Co. was judged as #5C (German Helles Exportbier) according to the 2015 BJCP Guidelines. The aroma of this beer revealed a wonderful malt sweetness and subtle hints of honey with negligible hop aroma (okay for style). The pour revealed a straw-colored hue with very good clarity and a rocky head (carbonation ). As well, the carbonation had good head retention throughout the tasting. The flavor of this beer was a balanced malt sweetness along with light hop bittering very much in the style of German Helles. The beer had a light / medium body and mouthfeel. Very good carbonation throughout, which made the beer very crisp, dry and smooth. A very easy-drinking beer made in the true German helles style.
