COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Heidi Lager is a German-style Pilsner brewed with Hallertau hops. It's really on the money. Slightly perfume (hop) in aroma, just like Heidi would want it.

Dogbrick (8660) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Sample at the brewpub. Clear yellow-gold color with a medium thick fluffy white head that diminishes steadily. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of herbal hops, malt and fruit. Light to medium body with flavors of grassy hops, toasted malt and fruit. The finish is mildly bitter with an herbal hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2013
From the April 2013 3R6P beer tasting. +++ Sampled from a growler this beer poured a bright yellow color with a small soapy white head that faded and left no lacing. The aroma was slightly must and skunky with a tart citrus presence. The flavor was dry, tart and very perfumey with a hint of skunk and a light citric note. Medium length tart perfume and citrus finish. Light body. Not good.

JStax (3237) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Poured on draft. Pours a pale gold with a thin white head of foam. Aroma is super light and a little grainy. Taste is mildly bitter and just a touch sweet. Finish moves toward the more bitter side of the style and on to a walnut type nuttiness. Its a nice take on the style, that’s for sure.

JaBier (5011) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2009
Sample at Buckeye Beer Engine. Clearish yellow pour with a big white head. Malty aroma with a bit of hop and lemongrass. Mostly malt flavor with hints of lemongrass and apricot and some bitter hops in the finish.

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 13, 2009
On tap at The Beer Engine. Pours clear yellow with a thin white head. The nose is citrus zest and light malt. The taste is similar to the aroma with some light citrus hops in the finish. Medium bodied. Nothing special, but not bad.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 14, 2008
In short: A german pilsner with a fruity pineapples twist. Very nice session beer.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear blonde body with a medium white head leaving goof lacings.
In long: Pillowy body. Malt profile is white bread, wheat and a little honey. Then comes some dry grass, some floral notes, mild bitterness. An overall pineapples flavour from beginning to end. The wheat, grass and floral aspects really took me to a countryside field. All in all a very flavourful refreshing beer that will take you to a countryside field an make you forget about the gloomy aspects city life, and trust me in Cleveland you’ll really need it.

krautdog (15) - Gimmelstümph, GERMANY - MAY 14, 2008
Must say I was most impressed with this one, a very well done German style pilsner. I had it on draft at the Beer Engine. Poured a very pale straw color with a big, creamy head and very good carbonation. The taste was right on for the style, it reminded me a lot of the pilsners I had last time I visited Deutschland.
