COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic Munich-helles style lager with the emphasis on complex malt flavors and low hop character - in accordance with the style. Brewed with 2-row pale and Caramel 60 malts and Saaz and Hallertau hops. This was the first American beer to certifiably pass the Bavarian Reinheitsgebot Purity Law of 1516.

I was actually suprised this was ranked so high on here. I didnt think it was horrible but it just wasnt that great at all. It at least had more flavor than the usual bud light my dad usually has in the fridge. This actually had a little maltiness and a little bitterness to it.

pours a cloudy yellow gold color, not much head or lacing. A very malty lager, with just a tinge of roasted taste,smooth as well. Nice amount of hops and bitterness. A really good lager.

Clear and gold in color with a small white head. Good clean malt aroma with some biscut and slight toasted malt. Good malt flavor that is balanced well with a mild hop bitterness. Reminds me of a good dortmunder style german lager. A beer which I’d drink several of and will have again.

I was surprised this is a pretty good brew. has a slight caramel aroma, taste is similiar... caramel almost a spice element to it, along with a hint of hops. smooth body.

Pale yellow, slightly cloudy appearance. Soft white foam head that doesn’t last, yet stays thinly at the surface throughout. Aroma is almost that of a hefeweizen. Taste is Saaz hop bitterness with the fluffy citrusy notes of the Hallertau and pale malt sweetness. This is a poor cousin to Urquell and Czechvar which means it’s pretty good, just not excellent. Worthy effort.

It was alright (reminded me of Sam Adams), but not nearly as smooth as I’d like. I’d take a Killian’s Irish Red any day over it.

I might be partial because this was originally a Cincinnati beer. It does have an over good flavor. Like a sam adams but not quite

ehhdayton (1188) - USA - FEB 27, 2006
Slight malty aroma with a bit of hoppiness can be detected. The beer pours a golden color with a small white head. Starts off with a slight malty sweetness but quickly grows to finish with a mild bitterness.

hopscotch (9163) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2005
Bottle... Clear, golden lager with a large, frothy, off-white head. Very good retention. Malty, peppery nose with notes of honey and white bread. Decently balanced flavor, but a touch on the bitter side. Medium-bodied and astringent with moderate carbonation. Finishes medium bitter and very dry.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2005
A tad bit darker than the standard lager. Aroma is slightly skunky, but with a good bit of caramel and honey. Funky flavor, slightly oxidized, but some notes of honey and flowers.
