The year 1933 saw the repeal of national prohibition in the United States. While it was not fully repealed until Dec. 5th, it was amended to allow the production of beer on April 7th. Many of the long suffering national brewers whose livelihoods were restored were of German heritage and it only seemed right to brew this malty, German style lager to commemorate the occasion. Using German malts and prized Czech Saaz hops, we've brewed a very smooth and drinkable toast to the repeal. The color is very light amber and the aroma is malty with a delicately spicy hop note. Brewed as a German Style Maerzen or March beer, this is also very similar to the Octoberfest style. O.G. - 13.1°P/1052 Hops -19 IBUs

Golen color. Malty aroma. Taste is sweetish, but nearly balanced. Mild to moderate caramel and some earthy flavors. Caramelly, malty finish. Tasty.

Indra (2711) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - APR 7, 2006
Lightly sweet, grainy malt aroma, very lightly hoppy as well; makes only a slight impression due to the overall faintness. Perhaps some faint vegetal notes. Medium copper color, clear, with a slight, fine head. Mild flavor profile as well but thankfully not as much so, featuring some tangy, fruity hops and mild spicy bitterness on top of the lightly bready, cereal-like maltiness, just a hint of toast and caramel sweetness here. Smoothly carbonated mouthfeel, plenty active but with a distinct crisp lager smoothness. Not a lot to this one, it is mildly pleasant however, and made for a good choice on an 80 degree evening.
