The German Brewers’ Star represents Fire, Air, Water and Earth together to form perfect balance. It’s clear that the brewer’s star was intended to symbolize purity; a brewer who affixed the insignia to his product was thereby declaring his brew to be completely pure of additives, adjuncts, etc. In fact, folklore has it that the six points of the star represented the six aspects of brewing most critical to purity: the water, hops, grain, malt, yeast, and the brewer himself. Our Head Brewmaster created this beer in honor of the history of the Brewers’ Star. Crackery aromas of fresh milled grain and grassy, floral hops, with crackery malt flavors, fresh cut hay and bitter noble hops. Clean, crisp and refreshing.
Food Pairings: Salads, Pork, Light Seafood.

Clear pale yellow, small white foam ring. Bit weak aroma and quite regular taste, but then this style is not outspoken ever. (Cleveland 201510)

Pailhead (6425) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - OCT 8, 2015
On tap: The aroma consists of mild honey, cereal/grain notes, and a touch of grass. It’s a transparent golden-orange with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There is some thin soapy webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with with a quick dose of honey. The finish has lightly sweet grains and cereal notes with a touch of grass. It’s light bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

On tap at the Brewpub. Patty wanted a mild beer without fruit in it. She liked this. Pours a clear golden color with an average white head that was lasting with good lacing. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate sweet flavor with a good moderate sweet finish.

Pretty bland lager that didnt have much taste or appeal. What it did have was a little bit of traditional German taste.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 27, 2015
On tap @ Fat Heads PDX. Clear golden colored beer with some white head. Much too sweet for my liking for this kind of beer. Very sweet and sugary, some caramel?!, and cereal grains. Really no bitterness at all. Actually tastes kind of bland, despite being quite sweet.

mcberko (14632) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 21, 2015
On tap at Fat Head’s, pours a clear blonde with a small white head. Aroma and flavour is slightly on the sweet side, with perfumey floral notes, grass, and biscuity malt to back. Clean and balanced, but not overly exciting. Decent.
