I didn’t even realize this was a top 50 premium lager until after I was finished drinking it, but I wasn’t surprised. It pours golden amber with a tall, creamy off white head with good retention. The aroma is mostly fruity peaches, banana, and a hint of noble hops. The flavor is fruity up front that goes grainy and ends with a mild noble hop bitterness and some dry cracker like malts. It leaves a doughy aftertaste. I kind of like these lagers a little dryer and crisp, but it was still enjoyable for a style that can be really boring.

Pours a nice clear dark gold/orange color with medium amount of bubbly, quickly dissapating head. Aroma is big - can smell it from table level - some mellow doughy yeastiness, with sweet grassy base and slight citric notes. Flavor is pretty dry with a nice medium bodied grain base and some floral hop notes. Overall, a very good lager.

beerbill (3324) - Laurel, New York, USA - SEP 23, 2009
12 oz. bottle that I received as a gift from my friend Russell. Pours a crystal clear gold with a moderate linen white head that was gone after two sips and left a few streaks of lace. Barely noticeable aroma of malt and grain. The flavor is again malt and grain followed by a moderate dose of hops bitterness that is basically flavorless. Uninteresting, even for a lager.

Decent lager. Nice looking amber with a big head. A bit skunky like most lagers. Bread malt flavor.

PhillyBeer2112 (2514) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2009
Clear copper color, foaming head. Light perfume nose, a touch spicy. Clean balanced flavor profile, with sweet bready malts, light bitterness that balances, minimal hop flavors. Reminds alot of Yuengling, only a little better!

Elwood (3009) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 13, 2009
Draft. Pours golden amber with a creamy off-white head. Grainy nose with light perfume notes as well. Medium carbonation with a medium mouthfeel. The palate follows the nose with grainy notes, a bit of perfume, and a decent hop bitterness to balance things out. Medium finish with some lingering bitterness. A tasty lager that is very sessionable.

CUJO (383) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 10, 2009
Bottle VA: Nice brew! The nose is a complex mix of hops, jerz (earthy, dirty), some sugars. Taste reflects the same, carbonation is medium and rinses the alcohol well. The bitterness hits the tongue first, giving way to some sweetness and smoke, ending again with the bitter hops.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - JUN 6, 2009
Bottle pours a hazed amber with a healthy offwhite head that leaves abundant lacing. Floral and spicy noble hops aroma. Light medium body has a creamy carbonation. Taste is well balanced, with a subtle malt sweetness that struggles to balance the bitter hop profile that is mostly spicy. a hint of ripe pear adds complexity. A very drinkable and well executed lager.
