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.

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - MAY 10, 2007
draft- pale yellow in appearence, white head, big lemon/citrus hop flavor that I enjoyed quite a bit. My friend and I were not quite sure what kind of beer this was, but it was nice and refreshing on a late spring night. Would buy again. Friend really thought it had a sour apple thing going on that I noticed other raters had mentioned,but I did not get that.

BigBen2120 (688) - Derry, New Hampshire, USA - APR 27, 2007
12oz brown bottle from Florian’s. Very hazy yellow body with a half inch of white head. Smells malty with a good dose of floral hops. Tastes like citrussy pithy floral hops with caramel malt making a nice malt backbone. The mix of hops is really nice. Lighter bodied with only a moderate amount of carbonation. The great flavor and light mouthfeel make this a really drinkable beer. It has the perfect balance of full flavor and refreshing drinkability. Good stuff.

Nihon (247) - Vernon, Connecticut, USA - APR 18, 2007
Cloudy pale yellow appearance, Aroma of alcohol and bananas. Flavor is a bit mysterious, a little bitter. Decent balance, Flavor of a pine like candy, flavors come out more and more with every sip.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 28, 2007
Have had this one in bottles quite a few times and recently (2/19) on draught at Redbones. Won’t be rating the draught version, as that was a diacetyl bomb.
Another fantastic appearance, very well-conditioned and obviously unfiltered/unpasteurized. Huge, foamy, sticky white head laces very fully. Beer is clear, with a slight haze and shows a fine golden appearance with tiny bubbles in the liquid.
Very dry and lightly fruity hops in the nose suggest styrians and/or hallertauers. Deliciously crisp and aromatic, with light yeast apparency on the finish. Malts are super-attenuated, lending only the barest hint of light vanilla-honey, but more a grainy, crisp, fresh barley aroma. No alcohol or flaws from the nose.
Flavor is shockingly dry. Even for someone who enjoys ultra-dry beers, this stuff is challenging. Almost zero sweetness, just a bit of lemon-icing sugariness that quickly gets wisked away by the assertive, moderately bitter nectarine-meets-lemongrass hoppiness. Orange zest and lightly bitter lime-like notes collect as well, as a slightly nutty, moderately grainy, crisp maltiness further dries the palate. Very engaging, tight carbonation needs a good 10 minutes to reach an appropriate level (it starts a bit too aerated). Really interesting beer, my only complaint was the fact that you could "taste the Paper City in it". Hard to describe exactly, but there’s a slight papery, almost sour-apple (though much less intense/apparent than that sounds) note that I associate with Paper City beers that I can also taste here. Seems like they used Paper City yeast, which was not a great decision. I’ll take the XPA, though, I think that one is a bit more balanced overall.

JoeMcPhee (8551) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 14, 2007
12 oz bottle. Very pale golden beer, slightly cloudy. Aroma if lean pale malt, spicy wheatiness as well as a touch of orange peel citrus character. Flavour is great with loads of spicy hop aroma and flavour in perfect harmony with the lean pale malt. Straw-like herbal character that comes across as very fresh. Great balance and would make a terrific session beer.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - JAN 10, 2007
Hazy golden orange with a large head, good lacing and retention. Aroma is a huge blast of fruit and grass. Like, loaded without being overbearing. I can’t stop smelling it. For a golden ale.. wow. Flavor brings this with a relatively high bitterness, medium body. Big flavors for the style, but also very well balanced. My favorite Golden Ale, if the 6 packs are $8 or less I’m buying a case, which says a lot.

shadey (1912) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 20, 2006
Clear, light golden orange pour with a thin white head of lace. Aroma is light sweetness and attractive hops. THe hops are more in line with an american pilsener than an IPA. Pretty tastey, with a clean bite of hops in the finish. Actually better than I anticipated. Palates is raw and scraping. Quite a nice and tastey brew.

HogTownHarry (6129) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2006
Bottle (12oz). Slightly hazy pale gold with a large fluffy/foamy white head, sticky lacing. Aroma - oh, god, after all those Québec golden ales, I’m bloody floored; sweet malt backing, yeasty, with a wonderful mélange of herbal, resiny, floral hops - like a fresh Euro-style hoppy brew moderately amped up American style - it works well. The taste is quite nice - less hop character up-front - surprisingly mild, really - but it slowly builds sharp bitterness in the finish, which is slow-building and fairly long. Soft, gentle mouthfeel, astringent and crisp, a bit of a resin aftertaste - and it seems to have a little alcohol kick too, but it’s only 4.9%? I agree with muzzlehatch - if this were readily available near me I’d have a six chilled and ready to drink all summer long. Well done!
