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.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 12, 2004
Clear, peachy-golden-hued in appearance, very promising, with a solid heft of head above, soft and near-white in color. Aroma, neutral, a bit grainy, right on for the average lager, airy and inoffensive. Nice enough. Taste: smoooth, mild, big and malty, little hops on the palate, but†everything slides very easily down. Grainy taste is easily met by light fruit, the body is medium, finish is long and lasting. Flavor sits forever in the mouth, thatís is the biggest thing this brew has going for it. Itís not one of those In-&-out-lagers, in the mouthfeel. big points for that, for the persistence, and the pleasure, and the all-out pleasant-ness going on here. If I were somewhere where this was the most intriquing selection, though Iím no lager lover, itís a beer I could happily sit with. Or stand, even. Actually, it tastes better the more you get into it...very nice. Yum, top notch lager!

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - OCT 7, 2004
Pint (or so), drunk as a lovely complement to Michael Stipe and Bruce Springsteen dueting on "Man on the Moon" at Clevelandís Gund Arena, October 1. Lovely malty/lemony aroma, juicy fresh well-balanced body, nice cutting but light bitterness throughout...I donít have a lot to say here really as I was paying attention to other things; but I really wish I could get something this good at all concerts and sporting events.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - SEP 16, 2004
Nice golden/amber color,small white head that faded slowly and left a slight lace behind.Good light malty aroma with a slight hint of olive (Green) and maybe some hops and fruit as well.Nice fruity flavor some malt and a nice hop presence that doesnít get to out of hand but stays in the quite refreshing range.A very nice brew and iím glad i have one more for later.Thanks go to Footbalm for sending me this brew and others from this brewery along with some great samples from his company.

Bottle. Pours an amber to yellow color. Whitish head, medium lived. Aroma is a combination of malt and hop. Mouthfeel is medium to light. Taste is clean and crisp. Pretty good beer overall.

Pours golden (obviously) with a small head and heavy carbonation. Taste is light, crisp, and malty. Low hops. Slight fruit aftertaste. A great summertime beer.

IndianaRed (2865) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Bottle Pours a a slightly hazy light golden amber with a good foamy white head. Aroma is a light fresh smelling grain, apple cider, and yeast with an easy hops trace. Flavor is slightly sweet, bready and the slightly higer ABV is noticeable. Feel is very light and crisp and the finish is quick, clean with just a hint of hops. Very nice refreshing, light brew.

sfontain (845) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2004
Light red with a great, huge, chunky, disappearing head. Aroma a bit weak with light malts and a little citrus. Flavor is lightly sweet, fruity malts, matched up with a solidly hoppy finish. Feels both clean and silky, yet not sticky; nice. Tasty.

awaller05 (305) - Sharon, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 26, 2004
sweet smell as it was poured, nice golden hue with a decent size head. Just enough hops to keep the malt at bay. Would recommend this beer to people
