3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of alexsdad06. Pours copper/gold with a thin but lasting white head. Aroma is dominated by citrus and tea. Tastes of light pepper, a hint of spice, some nice dry malt. Finishes lightly bitter with a nice hint of lingering dryness. This is better than the scores indicate.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a flute.
3.0 A: Light straw color and crystal clear. Two fingers of soapy head that falls quickly, even in a flute. Not really any lacing going on.
4.5 S: The aroma is quite enjoyable. Lots of sweetness, but not cloying at all. Grainy and a touch of straw. Simple, yet elegant. Hops are minimal.
4.0 T: Again, sweet yet not cloying. Earthy, a bit grainy but much less than in the smell. A bit doughy as well. Hops are minimal again and it works well.
4.5 M: Medium body. Good carbonation and creamy. Everything checks out here.
5.0 D: Pretty good beer. I usually hate the style, but this one is a winner.

Pour Form a 12 oz bottle. Deep gold color with a white head that soon dissipates. Pleasant aroma of malt and flowery hops. Flavor is an exceptionally good balance of sweet light malts with a distinctive hops bitterness. Fine finish with an excellent hops smack on the back of the tongue and lingering, pleasant, bitterness. Good mouthfeel with active carbonation. I picked up a 6 pack of this while passing through Cincinnati recently. A very good, very solid brew. Will have to look for it here in Michigan.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crisp, refreshing, smooth and toasty, this beer defines a light, easy drinking, German lager. Great example of the style, although slightly less dry and a bit sweeter than most German style helles I’ve had. Nonetheless, LagerHouse is a perfect session beer on a hot day. Not much in the way of flavor or aroma, yet the crispy, bready malt and caramel aroma defines every aspect of the beer. It is light bodied, but not thin, and has a sourdough dryness, a rye spiciness, and a multi-grain, whole wheat, oily,grainy sweetness. I could drink this all day. (and that’s the plan.) Christian Moerlein deserves credit for brewing the best and most accurate German lagers with extreme attention to detail and the purtiy law (this was the first American recipe to pass the Reinheitsgebot), that far surpasses many other American breweries.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from a Moerlein mixed 12pack bought in Kentucky. Sweet brewery malt aroma. Orange tan color, slightly hazy, but mostly clear. Mild crisp hoppiness up front and a smooth, sweet malty finish. A little thicker and richer than a typical German example. Pretty good session beer.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The pour was golden with a half inch white head. Aroma was sweet and wheaty with hints of malts, honey, and a little bit of hops. This beer went down really smooth, but lacked in flavor. It is better than the average beer, but not much.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle on a small lager glass. Pours golden with thin white head and light lacing. Aroma is caramel malts, grass hops and I want to say something yeasty. Taste is both sweet and bitter. Finishes dry. LIght to medium body. Not bad but nothing more.
