COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beer of the Gods is a refreshing German-style beer that could never happen in Germany – as easy to drink as the best Kölsch but as hoppy and satisfying as a supreme Altbier. And the best news? At only 4.5%, it won’t keep you from doing the important things in life. Sure, we know that those well-endowed beers will get all the press, but, just once, how about some props for the little guy?

Malts: German Pilsner and Wheat malts
Hops: German Perle, Tettnang, and Hersbrucker
Available in 22 ounce bottles and in kegs.

RichardGretton (4434) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2007
Bottle. Pale yellow beer with a light head. The aroma is lightly mulled and the flavour is very, very, very bitter. Overall a reasonable bitter beer.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 1, 2007
Bottle: This has been residing mysteriously in my fridge for some time now. I have no idea how it got there, but it’s time has come. Pours an opaque pale yellow in color with a white head. Aroma, light fruits, spices, bready notes, pale malts. Flavor, spicy, some fruits, definitely soapy, some grassy bitterness on the finish. Not good, I think I have to echo reakt on this, if this is the beer of your god, it’s time for a change.

reakt (949) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2007
Bottle @ St. Albans BF. Yellow with a fluffy white head. Citrus, hop, malt and wheat. Taste is much the same with grapefruit notes. Overcarbed and soapy with a watery bitter finish. I think I may have even overrated it. If this was the beer of my god, I’d change religions...

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 27, 2007
Pours gold with a thin white head. Smells of crisp pilsner malt, some grass and some spicy hints. Tastes soapy with some earthy hints and a dry finish.

AskForJenny (1037) - Ontario, New York, USA - OCT 22, 2007
12oz - Yellow Gold liquid with an internal glow, light tan head, Bright, grassy hop note on nose. Dry, hoppy greeting on palate, followed by layered but not overpowering bitter finish. Good

beerbuzzmontreal (3488) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2007
Pours a hazy golden color with a ring of white lace. Aroma of citrus, pepper and hops. Good flavor of citrus and hops with a mild bitter finish. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation. A nice, refreshing beer.

bierkoning (11206) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 10, 2007
Bottle @ Bruxellensis. Citrus, flowery hops and traubenzucker in the aroma. Oily hoppy flavor with citrus. Lacks balance.

jrt (62) - USA - SEP 10, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2007 Pours a cloudy cake-yellow with a creamy, steamed milk like head that settles but doesn’t die out. Instantly I think Zinnebir, due to the fresh grass and golden cake notes, only this beer is hoppier, somewhat sweeter, and with a slightly less enchanting malt profile. Being unfiltered really helps with the mouthfeel, which is creamy. Something about it reminded me of a pilsener but it’s hard to describe. the important thing is that the beer is very very well made and interesting, but still what most would consider a session beer. If this beer were more readily available I think it would be extremely popular, which is astrange thing to say about a beer so well made. I plan on having many of these in my lifetime.
