Tap at Lafayette. Filtered slight green yellow body. Big creamy head. Inexpert lagering. Not all the way off per se, but some odd flavors creeping into the otherwise straightforward Pale Lager. The aroma is unappetizing. A little more character than some brewpub examples, but pretty boring and shabby too.

Pretty standard lager. Not much to write about. Reminds me a little of a Stella I guess. Not bad. Had this poured from draft as part of a sampler at Lafayette Brewing Co.

Draft sample @ Ft. Wayne Oktobeerfest. Fruity grainy malt aroma. Hazy yellow with a moderate white head. Bready malt and light grassy hops flavor. Light body, moderate carbonation. Nice enjoyable lager.

Patrickctenchi (5726) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Draft: Pours clear....gold with a small, white head. Smalls slightly sour, lemony, malty. Taste is a little tangy, malt, grain, "generic beery" Comes across as a little cheap feeling.

Draft. Lemon-orange malt and hay aroma. Yellow with small head. Sweet creamy malt and hay flavor. Very nice German-style lager.

Well balanced lager. A good session beer. Very fresh, but nothing extraordinary. Nice balance.

Faint grassy scent on the pour to a medium head that subsides quickly. A nice gold color shows also just a hint of carbonation. A bit of malty sweetness on the taste, and the finish is dry and a little peppery. Nothing spectacular, but certainly solid.

Aroma is hops, light color, light body. appearance is like a normal lager (miller lite, budweiser), Taste is overbearing hops for style. No malt taste what so ever. Palate is crisp, clean, and hoppy. Overall, not too impressed as it is advertised as a German Lager. Sorry, but this is a no go for me..

tap at the brewpub - Pours clear yellow with a white head and a grainy malt aroma. It tastes light, sweet and malty with some mild hops bitterness. It’s light bodied and while not terrible, definitely underwhelming.

Looks OK in the glass, bright golden color, well carbonated and decent head formation. Noticeably sweet on the nose and tastes very sweet too. Cardboard lieke dryness in the finish spoils and sours a little but remains sweet and even sugarry in the aftertaste. Pretty much run of the mill lage
