Wow, I did not expect this in a lager. Nicely balanced hop and malt character, it begs to be drank! Brewed in honor of a local establishment’s 50th aniversary and sampled on site, it was a pleasure to drink a pale lager that has some colour, flavour, and character. The brewer mentioned that it was in the pre-prohibition style.

A sweet malty/grainy aroma. Beer is gold with a small white head. Flavor is initial sweetness followed by a spicy/crisp hoppiness. Easy drinking, thirst quenching. Not alot going on here, but still a nice beer.

Tap poured a clear golden color with nice white head. Aroma was clean lager yeast with a hoppiness and corn. The flavor was well balanced with a dry lager finish. A sharp crisp bitterness and a bit of corn fit right into style without being to powerfull. Good one.

I hated the corn aftertaste. I don’t like corn, so that is probably why. But the sensation is very strong. The beer looks quality though.

Brilliant golden straw in color,modestly carbonated which lends to a good dense head. Nice clean aroma with a good hop presence. Medium bodied. No diacetyl, nice hop/malt balance, crisp and refreshing, finishes dry, quite pleasant.

Nice light grapefruit and hop flavor. A little bit of sweetness balanced this out just right. A pleasant surprise.

Had this on draft at the Stone 9th party. Clear yellow with a nice, slightly sweet flavor. Far superior than the pale lager crap you see every where. Nice brew

Taster at the Stone 9th Anniversary Festival. Purported to be a pre-prohibition style lager, I found this to be quite interesting. Definitely a lager but with some more palate and flavor than modern brews. Pretty good.
