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.

Had to catch myself and rate the last one of the six-pack before it ran out. This is a nice, well, gold color with minimal but pleasant head and lacing. Aroma is light dough, laced with caramel and some vegetal hoppiness. Flavor is nicely balanced and complex grain, clean and woodsy hoppiness. Really a perfect balance between residual sweetness and hoppiness here. Really good stuff.

Damico (2356) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2014
This tastes awesome after a long day, on an empty stomach, and driven fresh from Cleveland. Pours golden clear with an orange hue and huge creamy white head. Love the aroma, almost a funk sweetness from the German yeast, juicy and refreshing unexpectedly. Flavor has a nice German sweet clean flavor from the malts and yeast.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear gold with white head. Aroma is hay, grass and grains. Taste is mostly malt sweetness with similar flavors to the aroma. Slightly bitter finish. Light to medium bodied. Crisp and smooth mouthfeel. Very sessionable beer. Great on a warm summer day. Excellent for style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bacterial (1205) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Draft at Stouts. Ever so slightly hazy deep golden amber in color with a really nice white head. This is one of those beers that should be in the conversation when wondering what you would want on permanent draft when stuck on a desert island. Lots of hops - old school ones, not the citrus bombs. Properly bitter. Dry finish. Really well done.

thornecb (4172) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - APR 22, 2014
Pours gold into a Sam glass. Off-white head with good retention recedes leaving spider lacing. Sour citrus and bread aromas. Soft with sour fruit and vegetables upfront turning to sourdough before an aspartame finish.

Nice golden color light foamy head. Aroma brings back memories of my fathers beer. No bitterness in taste or after taste. No nonsense beer. My go to in warmer weather.

Bottle into a larger glass. Pour is a golden orange. Aroma is crisp with full malt. Taste is a rich thick rounded malt with a slightly bitter hint. Finish is a bold rich and crisp. This is a great Lager.
