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.

Draft at Churchkey. Hazy yellow pour, smallish head. Clearly a very fresh keg and boy does this deliver more than I would’ve expected, with a vibrant noble hop nose of spicy and grassy hop, touches of light but gorgeously subtle malt and it dries out at the finish. Excellent beer.

From a bomber. Pour is very nice too look at, a big rocky head on a bubbling hazey lookin lager colored thing. Smell is crisp and fresh. Taste has lots of sizzling co2. It says its hoppy but the taste is not overwhelming hoppy; you can taste it tho. Hops do build as session continues. Seems to be more than the 4.5% listed here. Overall not bad for a somewhat unsweetened citrusy beer. Didn’t think I’d like this but it was OK!

Spicy, with a complex hoppy balance...nice flavor. Very crisp. The Gods are pleased I’m sure.

12 oz. bottle shared by bsuedekum- thanks, Blake! Pours a hazy pale yellow color with a medium white head that lasts. Aroma of straw, bread, grass, minerals, sawdust, and perfume. The flavor is absolutely identical. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, crisp mouthfeel. Might suffice for lesser gods.

stouby (4067) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2012
Bottle at home. Clear yellow with a white head. Aroma light to medium malty (caramel) and hoppy (flowery, notes of citrus). Flavor light to medium sweet and bitter, light spicy. Light body.

auerbrau (3182) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - NOV 18, 2011
12oz Bottle, purchased at Downtown Wine & Spirits - Somerville, MA. Light, subtle, salty and plain grain aroma. Coulda guessed this was a Golden Ale. Hazy. This really feels and tastes like pils malt. It’s clean and that’s commendable. A nice snap in the finish. The water works well for this brew. It’s pilsner-like, which I enjoy. I think I would have so much more appreciation for this if it was 85F and sunny, which reminds me that this will be a go to summer beer next year. I’m looking forward to having a local, clean malt drinker like this.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 12, 2011
The label sets the bar pretty high and it unfortunately doesn’t hit the mark for me. Pours a yellow colour with a white head that dies away almost immediately. Aroma of yeast and corn. Similar corny flavour with some caramel, grass, yeast and a little alcohol coming through at the back. Low carbonation and a slick, oily mouth-feel. A little CO2 prickle and a long corny, yeasty linger. Not my thing.

cakanator (452) - South Hadley, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 8, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours out a lighter golden hue, white head decent lacing. Not much coming from the aromas, some citrus, little nutty, doughy, but light notes. Crisp and clean palate, but not really much flavor. Palate isn’t super balanced, light and messy, some steely off flavors. Pretty average.

Beer of the Gods? That’s a lot to live up to, and this falls short. Straw yellow color. Okay. Aroma is soft and fruity. Esters. Sharp german hop flavor, with notes of fruit and yeast.

mansquito (4118) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 1, 2011
Blainchard’s, Allston sixer ($10): Pours a hazy golden color with a nice white head. Aroma is straight up German hops and not much else. Taste is sufficiently bitter throughout. Tastes almost like a pils, but is still definitively an ale. Malt backbone is thin, but the beer is not watery at all. In terms of texture it is great, but in honesty I am not a huge fan of the flavor profile, even though I love the styles from which this in derived.
