COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This smooth lager strikes a delicate balance between malt and hops in the aroma, palate, finish and body. It has more body and less hops than a Pilsner, and less malt and more hops than a Munich style lager. 30 IBU.

This is a good overall beer. Good crisp balance of malt and hop. Good look with head and lacing. Good beer on the cusp of great.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2014 Tap. Golden color, duh. Very little head. Malty smell. Decent beer to have at the bar. Not my favorite.

Small sample poured from 12 oz. bottle in a beer class at Total Wine and More in McLean, VA. Clear, bright amber with an off-white head and fair lacing. Mild aroma of biscuit malt, caramel and subdued hops. Taste of lemon, biscuit malt, caramel and mild floral hops. Medium/light body and medium/low carbonization. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap into an english tulip pint. The aroma is mostly floral with some bread malt notes and citrus accompanying it. It has a moderate foamy head which dissipates quickly and leaves some trace (minimal) lacing. This sits atop a clear gold colored beer. This initial taste is sweet honey and caramel with some mild maltiness and some very light trace resin bitterness. It’s medium bodied with active carbonation. It goes down somewhat syrupy, but more or less dry. The initial sweetness fades with warmth and gives way to a dry, mild, but more pronounced, bitterness. It finishes mostly mild, hoppy bitterness accompanied by the floral notes sticking around.

Sampled on tap at the brewhouse. A nicely well crafted brew with a mild hop palate and smooth malts. A brew that you can certainly enjoy on a warm summer day.

Golden pour with a nice white head. Aroma of malts, honey, and bread. Tatse is very crisp, malty, with a very nice finish. Overall a great lager, very well balanced and complex in a style that often yields a bland result to me.

Golden pour with thin white head. Crisp with floral and pine notes. Some resins hops in the flavor, and dry mouthfeel. I didn’t expect to like this much, but I was greatly impressed.

Best by: 25JUL11 A: pours a nice golden ale with a single finger of fine white head. This falls in a few minutes to a dome speckled sheet of the same. Nice cloying cobweb lace. Excellent clarity. S: grain, sweet grain, honey, hints of lemon pepper. T: Nice honey flavor hits up front and then transitions to reveal a earthy vegetal bitterness. Pretty refreshing beer. Simple. M: heavy body for the style, medium carb is spot on. O: good beer, a bit less sweet than I initially anticipated. Serving type: bottle 08-16-2011
