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?

Clear golden pour with a thin head. Grain aroma. Bright flavors. Grain dominates though. Clean finish. Good, but not overly interesting. Light watery mouth.

Pours a light gold color with a small white head. Smells of some floral notes from hops and a slight bready grainy quality from malts. Taste is spot on for a German pils. Some light spicy hops up front with a little bready malt coming through in the middle of the palate, finishing with a light dry spicy hop bitterness. Body of this beer is very light with good carbonation levels leading to a nice crisp finish. I love a good German pilsner and this one is done perfectly. Not quite enough to unseat Polestar Pils, but not many others I’ve had that I like better than this.

Pours a "bright" golden with a big, white head and plenty of carbonation. Big, sweet aroma, with hay, grass, and cereal in the background. Very sweet again on the tongue, light bitterness on the short finish. Light bodied beer and easy to drink. This would be a solid choice any day over St. Pauli Girl or Heineken.

Bygers (589) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2013
Bottle 0,33l. Pours a golden colour with small head that leaves a nice white lacing. Very nice aroma of wet corn. Tastes of malty breadiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a typical piss poor lager color. Nose is grainy and flat, what a surprise...and guess what, in typical lager fashion, flat, boring and tasteless. Maybe, just maybe for a very very hot sweaty humid afternoon in South Florida. Happy Hour, really ! Ugh. Quaff Score 3 / 10 Hey, what do you say. Monk, Trane and Davis...may they R.I.P. like all lagers.

zgaier (1185) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2013
Pours a clear yellow with a white head and light aroma of grains. Taste is of malt, grains, grass, and bread with a crisp finish. Typical lager, light and not very flavorful

12 oz bottle pours a clear pale yellow with average white head. Aroma is full of grains and yeast that make this seem more German than American. Body and carbonation are light. Taste is slightly sweet at first but drier on the finish. This is a good local session beer

Aroma is grainy malts and a hint of spice. The flavor is grainy malts, relatively low sweetness, bread and citrus hops in the finish.
