COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Malty, light lager with a rather low hop characteristic. This classic, well-balanced beer is a year round favorite in Munich. Hallertau Hersbruker hops do not overpower the Weyermann pills and carafoam malts. Very smooth.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - OCT 16, 2011
Sample at Augusta beer fest. Poured a hazy yellowish color with a tiny white head that went rather quick. Aroma was citrus, malts and corn. Flavor was citrus up front with a corn malty finish. Crisp and light. Decent from what it is.

(draught at StL Heritage Festival) pale gold with small white head. Faint pale malt aroma. Straightforward mild malt lager flavor.

jandd1983 (2602) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Sampler at the brew pub. It was a golden light brown lager. The flavor and aroma were grainy and malty. It was a decent brew.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - AUG 7, 2010
Draft at the Stable. Pale in the glass with a white head that left light lace. Corn aroma. Corn and grain in the flavor. Light body, crisp, and a grain aftertaste.

phaleslu (6608) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 31, 2010
Draft served in a pint glass at The Stable. Pours a cloudy pale gold with a small white head, pretty simple looking beer. Aroma of pale malts, grassy hops, and lemon peel. Flavor of pale malts, grains, grassy hops, light lemon citrus, and some sweet fruit that’s hard to identify. A little pinch of spice. Light-medium bodied, with crisp carbonation. Nice helles.

beastiefan2k (2478) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Tap at the Heritage Beer Festiva’10. Pours a clear pale yellow color with a medium sized and lasting head. This was the first beer of the fest for me and one of the last. Its nothing special except a clean, not flawed, lager. There is nothing exciting about it, low on the hops, light creamy cereal matliness. I could drink this easily, as I said I liked it at the beginning and the end of the fest.

beernbourbon (1310) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 29, 2009
On tap at Iron Barley. Pour is clear light golden color with medium white head. Aroma is light cookie malt, light honey, faint hop, and bakers yeast. Flavor is a sweet malt up front with a nice balancing dose of yeast near the end to balance it all out. Finish is lightly malty and yeasty. A nice flavorful yet light brew.

Skyview (5242) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - NOV 1, 2009
Sampled on draught during Great Taste of Midwest 2009 in Madison Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear golden yellow colored brew with a thin white head that quickly dissipates to a thin white ring. Aroma of golden grain malt, some light fruit, pears, citrus zest and a touch of peach. Taste is light to medium bodied, some carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt with some citrus zest-like hops, a touch of pear and some light lemon. Finish is a little gritty but has a nice golden grain with a hint of citrus aftertaste. A solid Helles Lager overall.

vyvvy (4025) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Pours hazy yellow with a white head - I don’t think any filtering happened with this one. The aroma has pale malt, light creaminess and light fruit (pear?). Medium body that’s smooth and creamy for the style. The taste starts off with pale malt, nectar fruit, graininess, slightly creamy and very lagered taste. The finish has slightly more fruitiness and some spiciness. A good helles.

Strykzone (5004) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2009
Sampled at the Brewpub the day after it became available. A golden light brown lager. Flavor and aroma were grainy and malty. A bit of fruit. Refreshing and easy to drink.
