3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap (finally). Pours with a small, fluffy, off-white head that flattens over a orange tinged yellow clear body. Aroma is grassy hops, toast and diacetyl. Taste is sweet and watery, but clean. Slight bready with no real hops or bitterness. In no way offensive, but not interesting. Well crafted though. Light bodied, dry and crisp with a slight lingering sweetness. Light tingling carbonation (which I prefer to the fizzy beers of the style).

Draught at Flying Saucer Fort Worth. Calling this a German style lager is a little weird. This was WAY sweeter than expected. Not saying it was bad, just not what was expected. Easy drinking beer but nothing special.

If you are going to make a lager to go against a sea of lagers, the DO SOMETHING to make it stand above. Had a hard time not falling asleep after the first sip, The second didn’t fare any better. Sorry if I was/am in a piss poor mood, but that about sums it up for me.
I’m all for breweries having a lighter beer that helps drive sales so that other beers can be made, but this still needs MORE to hit ground level and to be a step above will take some thinking and work.

A bit to malty for my taste. I generally like a lager to be crisp and spicy/hoppy. Maybe I’ll try it again, we’ll see.

A nice enough lager, but a tad on the sweet side- lots of honey character. Very nice lacing. Wish this guy well.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2008 On tap at the Irish Rover in Frisco, TX.
Pours a clear deep gold with white head, laced the glass. Aroma is slight citris and caramel. Flavor has a nice semi sweet caramel malt flavor. Palate is medium body, medium-high carbonation, very nice.
I had again at the Bavarian Grill in Plano, it seemed better this time around.....Very tasty and malty.
