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.

bhensonb (12454) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 16, 2009
Bottle from Archer Liquors. Light copper color with a transient, temporarily impressive off-white head. Aromas of pale malt and saaz? hop. Near medium body with fizzy/frothy carbonation. Flavor is amazingly bitter, almost overpowering the light malt. Comes a bit bready, but finishes nicely bitter and fairly dry. 30 IBU seems a good number.

argo0 (12118) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 24, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2006 (draft, 5/27/06) Clear apple juice body topped by a white head. Aroma is medium sweet, peach. Taste is medium sweet, peach, some earthy, light spice. Light-medium body, light stickiness. (6/3/8/4/15)

(12oz bottle, 1/24/05) Clear amber body with white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, bread, caramel, apple. Taste is moderately sweet, bread, some apple, light bitterness (grassy/earthy). Light-medium body, some crispness. I was not sure how to rate this -- it seems to have all the characteristics of a very good brew, but for some reason it did not much appeal to me. (6/3/6/3/12)
