COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The kinetic beauty of Noble hops grabs you by the nose and lets you know: this is German-inspired beer. A mild, bready malt sweetness greets you at the lips, smoothing the crisp hop flavors. Flywheel is meant for bombastic celebrations of singing voices and clamoring mugs. But then, that first contented moment of happy hour is uniquely celebratory as well. Now, where is that liter-toting Fräulein anyway?

Carlisle (369) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2015
Bottle. Slightly hazy gold color with off-white head and some lacing. Grass and straw aromas. Grass upfront with some slight honey notes followed by grapefruit hops and lemon-citrus notes. Mouthfeel is surprisingly chewy. Long, mouthcoating finish that's bitter but refreshingly pleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very good beer. Malty aroma. Likewise flavor with just enough bitterness. Excellent palate. Super easy drinking.

arkurzynski (2108) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Clear, brilliant gold. Nose of grassy herbal and woody citrus with sweet pilsner malt. Flavor is crisp lager malt with solid woody, herbal citrus bitterness. Lingering bittersweet mix. Minimal diacetyl. This was great. First thought was NG Hometown, but this was better. These ratings are killing me. Solid. Nothing and nowhere to hide in this beer.

csaso (1961) - Missouri, USA - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle - average size foamy head, hazy pale straw yellow color, typical basic lager aroma and flavor, but on the better side - grass, wheat, corn, earthy hops, pretty smooth finish, ok overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Christpuncher (2552) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Garbage beer. Super malty and boozy. Not a style I like. Smells malty and pours copper in color with a thin white head. Had at a fund raiser ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home watching a terrible Bears game. This is a decent lager, mostly yeasty / bready, easy drinking and better than the average lager...nothing special for this one though.

RobertDale (4963) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - NOV 10, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Pours a light gold with a nice white head. Aroma of malt, bread, and citrus. Taste is malt, lemon, bread, and caramel. Pretty good.

ARH (1093) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2014
12oz bottle poured into a high ball glass. Notes of dough, flowers, lemon, grass, and a light spice come through on the nose. It pours a clear, oily, pale yellow, with the light, sudsy white head. It leaves behind good lace and a medium ring with a dirty surface. The taste is a medium sweet and medium light bitter. The texture is light and oily with a light body and light, zippy carbonation. Flavors of buttered toast, light citrus, and spice hit the palate and it finishes clean and crisp. A light spice, bread crust, and grass aftertaste lightly coats the palate and fades quickly.

Nice refreshing flavor with a medium hoppy bitterness follow. Poured a golden with light foam
