COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Brewpub Exclusive is a strong DFH interpretation on the classic Munich Lager. It was brewed by our pub manager Jason and Head Brewer Bryan in traditional fashion with German Pils, German Munich, Biscuit, and Special B malts.

The slight departures from rigid stylistic tradition include boosting the ABV just a bit and using American hops (although Warrior and Liberty both have Noble lineage).

The aroma is full of bready, nutty, malt character with just a hint of spicy hops. The blend of Lager yeasts delivers a crisp clean finish and the dry, complex malt profile shines above a smooth subtle bitterness.

Way too drinkable for 7.5%, this beer will definitely get you ready for the chilly Fall weather coming our way. Enjoy this lager with some Wood-grilled and Roasted Chicken or Antelope Sliders!

Reviewed back in 2010 - It has a nice sweet malty taste and aroma. Sweeter than most Octoberfest type beers I’ve had. They changed it up a bit by using American hops but the sweet malt really takes over here.

On tap @ the Brewpub, Rehoboth De-Clear copper color w/a slight tan head. Roasted malt aroma. Flavors of floral hop, roasted malt, some caramel, & toffee. Had a fair amount of carbonation. Smooth & easy to drink, alcohol was very well hidden. I’d call it a good sesson brew if the alcohol wasn’t quite so high. Long malt finish, very enjoyable

From a tap poured a brown color with a fair amount of head. Sweet malty flavor with a quick finish.
