Brighter than Moonlight with a more forceful gravity. The Heavenly Malt profile encapsulates an elaborate Hop recipe for a crisp dry finish. Silver Medalist at the 2001 Great American Beer Festival.

shrubber85 (10762) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 24, 2008
Tap. Sweet buttery malt aroma. Golden yellow color with moderate head. Butter malt flavor. Another with high diacetyls - described as a German style lager - this was closest to a Helles or a Maerzen but hard to put a finger on due to the diacetyls.

On tap, Brewpub. Admittedly, I tried this a bit too deep into a drinking night to give this a proper rating. Nevertheless, there were some memorable qualities to it. First of all, it pours a quite palid yellow color. Aroma is light, with some grass and citrus. Flavor is grassy, but maintains a semi-interesting citrus hop character that I didn’t expect. Finish is pleasantly off-sweet. From my memory, this is definitely drinkable, just a bit boring.

Taster - Brew Moon Brewery - Honolulu, Hawaii
2008 - Hawaiian Beer Run
Aroma – A nice lager aroma.
Appearance – Dark yellow color, clear with a small head.
Flavor – Had a good lager flavor buttery and slick with some lingering flavors at the end.
Palate – A good Mouthfeel this ended slick and semi dry this was a good average beer.
Overall – Lagers are hard. I don’t care what they say about A/C in the brewery the place has some disadvantages with the humidity and heat. But overall not a bad beer.

On tap at the Brew Moon located in the Ward Center. Poured a medium golden color with a small sized head. Aromas of toasted grains and floral hops. Tastes of the same with some citrus. This one was listed on the menu as a ’Northwest Pale Ale’.

fordest (2470) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - MAY 29, 2007
Draft at brewpub. Some vegital aromas. Flavors were better with a decent hoppiness unexpected from a lager, but not too bad

swanmann (738) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 18, 2007
Had on the sampler. I HATE those little sample glasses, can’t really detect aroma. Appearance was clear golden w/green tones and a sustained thin off-white head. The flavor had rather impressive peppery hops giving it a rye-like character. Good lasting finish.

chadzter (94) - huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 28, 2006
Sampler. Good golden color and Pours with a thin covering head. Little of a hoppy aroma, with a crisp heavy malt taste. Its a bit dry but makes for a good drinking beer.

Some mildly pleasant doughy maltiness with a mild, bitter finish. Bitterish and slightly astringent finish-I see a trend here.
