Aroma is non-distinctive, average appearance, the flavor hits with a slight maltiness that quickly fades. Nothing too distiguishing about this, but nevertheless still a good run of the mill lager.

Transfer from BA review on 11-11-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass (bottled on day 204 of 2013 = July 23, 2013) Appearance – The beer pours a crystal clear golden straw color with a tiny white head. The fizzy head fades almost instantly, leaving almost no lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is overall sweet with a moderately strong aroma of corn syrup and a very light caramel. Along with these smells are some grainy and bready smells with just a hint of a citrus smell. Overall rather cloying in aroma. Taste – The taste begins with a rather sweet corn syrup flavor as well as some lighter bready flavors. The sweetness of corn syrup grows even stronger as the taste moves on with some lighter grain flavors joining the taste as well. A little bit of hay and earth join the flavor at the end leaving a rather overly sweet flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average to slightly thicker side for a lager of 5.2 % abv. with a carbonation level that is rather average. A thinner body and higher carbonation would have been better for the brew, hiding some of the more cloying flavors and making it an easier and more refreshing drinker. Overall – This is certainly not a beer I would recommend. Very cloying and rather unbalanced in flavors and feel. Most adjusts are far superior to this with a much lower cost and actually a better taste. I will likely not come back to this brew.

On tap at the Harrisburg brew pub. Pours a clear amber with a ring of white head. Nose is corny, cheap malt, metal root veg, cheap pine. Flavor is sweet, cheaply sweet, corn, pine, rotted carrot. Watery finish.

Nephilium (1413) - Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Light grainy aroma, with a touch of sweetness. Pours a clear light gold with minimal white head. Tastes underattenuated, with a sweetness left behind, and no noticeable hop flavor. A truly mediocre beer.

60minuteman (861) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Clear yellow urine color. Minimal head and lace. Aroma of malt, hop, wheat, lemons, pine, spices (pepper). Flavor is the same. Robust malt flavors are giving me a headache but only slightly. I think when this happens I have to chalk it up to raw yeast/malt. It happens with a Yuengling, too. Light body quick duration.

Bulk_Carrier (2269) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a clear golden colored body with small slowly rising bubbles. A small white head leaving a film on top of the beer appeared and left some light mild lacing. The smell was malty with some really light citrus. The taste was malts and light citrus and added a slight corn taste that ended up tasting pretty good. The palate was light and left a sweet yet wet aftertaste and finish. Overall, this was a good dortmunder that I would come back to. I’m glad I picked up a variety pack with this in it.

callmemickey (3021) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Clear golden body, medium to thin white head, spotty lacing. Sweet grains and cereals, fairly fruity in the nose. Light bodied, moderate carbonation, off-putting sweetness, muddled finish.

Light bodied golden ale with fluffy light head. Grainy and pale lager like beer. Easy to drink.
