COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Fordham Lager is a golden Bavarian-style lager, with a firm malty body, a subtle hop character, and a slightly sweet finish. Helles is the German word for light or pale, referring to the color of the beer. This is the everyday drinking beer for Germans in Munich. Fordham Lager is bottom-fermented, making it a lager beer, and has a medium to light-body. It has a clean, malt accented aroma and a malty finish with little hop bitterness. Our Fordham Lager is a very balanced beer, meaning that it is not too sweet and not too bitter. It is brewed mostly with pale malted barley and small amounts of Vienna and Munich malts, which increases the body and maltiness in the beer.

jrodooo5 (804) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Light & pretty uninteresting. It’s easy to drink but that’s about the best quality it has. Transcendent gold pour & lacking much aroma. It’s not very good overall!

jd543 (361) - SCOTLAND - MAY 18, 2013
Hazy yellow, pretty much no head. Aroma was very malty, breast and a bit yeasty. Flavour was light sweetness a bit of saltiness. Not awful but not that tasty either.

AshtonMcCobb (2113) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 17, 2013
355ml bottle. Pours light and golden with a small head, as expected. The nose has too much butterscotch for my liking. There’s a lack of freshness considering this is a lager. The taste is marginally better but still butterscotch and no fresh zingy finish. The palate is close to medium bodied with a cloying finish. Overall, not a good beer.
