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.

12oz bottle shared by SoLan. Pours golden color. Nose is bready, malty, and bit of yeast. Flavor is the same as the nose with some citrus flavors. Light and easy drinking.

Draft pours golden with a white head. Aroma of yeast, herbal and malts. Taste is grains, yeast and a hint of hops.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2014 Looks as good as the Germans do, yellow with an orange tinge and billowing white head. Appealing aroma of yeasty dough and herbal hops. The flavor is less interesting, pretty much all bread and a little honey. Well-balanced mouthfeel, this is a solid example of the style. Better than many of the German lagers I’ve had, although this hasn’t sat on a boat and a shelf forever.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Deep golden color with a low foamy head but maintains. Lite carbo’s. A nice smelling beer with a clean balance to it. I can pick up some spicy hops and some bready malts. Dry and tart tasting with a good biscuit or bready malt taste, not much. Spicy hops come through. Clean tasting and well balanced, a dry finish. I drink a few of these babies while cleaning up the gardens. A go to beer Drink well my friends

hopmelt (152) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Pours brilliantly clear medium golden, finger of creamy white head, slight lacing. Aroma sweet bready malt, floral hops, slightly fruity. Taste slightly bitter up front, malt sweetness comes in and balances it out, floral and fruity hops. Mouthfeel medium body and carbonation, clean and crisp, balanced finish. Overall very good for style, not my favorite but enjoyable, not sure why anyone would drink a fizzy yellow with well made options like this out there.

Bottle: I’ve tried this beer multiple times from a bottle & on tap. I want to love it, I want to see the greatness that everyone else sees... But me & this beer have just never "meshed" well. Cloudy, golden-orange body with a small, white, quickly dissipating head. Aroma is sweet pils malt & some backing graininess with a sharp, musty, cheese-like note that overcasts everything. Sweaty, dirty cheese. Also some sweetbread & hints of sweet corn. Taste has a little sting of some earthy, Saaz-like hops, along with a touch of florals before I’m send into the strange cheesiness of the brew again. More notes of bread, corn, & a strong sulfuric finish. Not sure what it is with this one... I just don’t "get it" & I always get this weird, cheese thing from it. So many better choices for the style, in my opinion, though it seems most disagree. I’ll say that certain bottles are much better than others... But overall, I’ve never been "wowed" by this beer.

Bottle. Light copper with medium off white head. Very light aroma of grain and not much else. Light body with a light malt sweetness and a medium hop bitterness on the finish.

The color is a beautifully bright and golden with great clarity. Its head has great retention and builds up thick and creamy white. Lots of cool lacing is left behind on the glass. The aroma is full of fruity sweet malts and aromatic floral hops. The flavor and body are wonderfully balanced. The malt has a pleasant sweet fruity character offset by flavorful leafy and crisp citrus hops with mild bitterness that quickly fades into the finish. The body is light to medium with a smooth yet crisp texture that is perfectly balanced with carbonation.
