This true American Lager is made with 100% Pilsen malt with a delicate body and light hop profile. Lagered in the tradition of the style to full maturity. It’s a break from the typical craft American beer scene.

Light banana wheat and smooth plain old beer taste. Nothing special but gets the job done. Draft pour at high wire brewery in Asheville

A traditional premium style lager with a nice bready malt base and clean profile with a bit of lemoniness to the hop. Pours a very pretty deep golden with a strong fluffy white head. On tap as a guest at Pig Pounder.

A mildly hopped lager that doesn't overshadow the traditional lager elements. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PorterPounder (5703) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Asheville, NC - Bruisin’ Ales - 12 oz bottle. Pours a sparkling medium golden with a quickly fading white head, rather still, not much bubble action. Aroma has an olive oil accent, some lemon accents. Flavor has a bit of a grainy essence, light nuttiness, some mineral water. Overall, somewhat bland. Mouthfeel is rather dry. Not a highlight of my North Carolina haul.

Sampled at the brewpub. It poured a clear golden color with a white head. The aroma was of grainy malts and some grassy hops The taste was grainy, with toasted malts, grass and herbal hops. Decent.

Pours a nice amber with a thin eggshell head. Aroma is crisp, malty and a bit fruity, typical but inviting. Flavor is malty with an underpinning of pear and a hint of apple. Texture is average but OK. This could be a good gateway beer to wean people off industrial swill.

Had on tap at Lookout Brewing in Black Mountain. Just meh. Color and taste of straw, predominantly. Pretty high carbonation. Sort of insipid flavor wise- bready, doughy, corn, sweet. Was cold enough that one could call it refreshing- might work in a pinch on a hot summer afternoon.

@ Whole Foods Market / Asheville NC --- Clear dirty light amber, thin head cover, narrow bands of lace. Taste reminds me of the big guys - malt and adjuncts that don’t extend flavor past the palate, fizz for balance, only this one at least provides a light bitter as the finish fades. Overall, weak.
