COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The German Brewersí Star represents Fire, Air, Water and Earth together to form perfect balance. Itís clear that the brewerís 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 Brewersí 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.

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 (13605) - Orange County, 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.

On tap at Fat Headís, 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.

phaleslu (7600) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 9, 2015
Draft at Myrtleís Punch House, served in a pint glass filled to the brim. Pours a clear bright gold with a small white head that leaves some bubbles throughout. Not much hop or snap to this one, just a clean, straightforward slate of pale, crackery, and cereal malts, straw, and a hint of grass. Light-bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a malty, but pretty clean mouthfeel. Not a lot going on here, but drinks easy and gets the job done.

Tap: Mostly clear golden body with a soapy, quickly fading white head. Small spots of lacing. Mild grain, grass, under-baked bread, & faint lemon zest in the aroma. Fresh biscuit & bread flavor. Heavy lager yeast, clumpy. Mild pale malt sweetness, cereal grain, earthy grass, a hint of citrus zest, & a faint metallic note. Small touch of honey with a zesty noble hop finish.
