A pilsner style beer specially brewed for those who seek a refreshing drink to share with friends at meals and conversation and, like our Heinzelmännchen friends, at times of celebration. A nicely balanced ale with a malty note that complements pasta and pizza.

This is a pretty good gateway beer. If someone says they want a Bud you could use this to get them moving towards craft beer.

Draft at the brewery. Orange colored pour with a white head on it. Fruity, swet, malty aroma. Easy drinking, crisp finish with a slight hop bitterness. Refreshing and pretty damn good. I liked most everything i had at this place.

This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of frothy fine to medium sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation hazy orange brown colored body. The mild aroma was caramel malt. The mild citrus thick mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a mellow hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of mild caramel hops and malt. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

ChainGangGuy (4808) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - OCT 20, 2010
Appearance: Humble-looking, clear, light golden body with a white head. Smell: Meager aroma smelling only loosely of lightly malted barley and tenuous hops. Taste: Lightly sweet, delicately malted barley. One singular drop of lemon juice. Subtle spicy hops and a very low amount of bitterness. All in all, it’s very mild, hovering uncomfortably on the precipice of blandness. Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: One of those uber-light, refreshing, albeit forgettable brews best utilized for washing down a meal. It was confidently handed to me as a "traditional Pilsner", notwithstanding it being brewed with an ale yeast. Ah well.
