Great solid lager - very balanced & great maltiness. Exactly what I expected from Thier Brew Master Bill Moore. He has been around for a long time and has always made a solid lager.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2011
Draft at GABF. Pours a pretty standard and very clear gold with stiff white head. Nose has faint herbal hops and a pretty robust malt profile, soft pilsner. On tasting, super clean and fresh. Soft malt profile that is the driving force with some pleasant light herbal hop notes. Quite enjoyable, if simple. Good balance and roundness. Nice!
