COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Straight from the tanks, unfiltered, this bier has undergone its third and final fermentation in the bottle in order to insure you the freshest possible lager bier. Expect this bier to be smooth, full-bodied, and slightly cloudy. The brewer’s yeast imparts a mild, fresh character which is as close as you can get to brewery fresh.

Thanks to Wawood for the Zwickel.

Poured with a hazy golden body and a bountiful pillow of white capped head. The aroma and flavor bring some traditional and some non-traditional lager note… grassy, sweet with honey and grainy All-Grain beady suggestions, yet a lightly tart doughy lemon peel in the finish. This bier has a grand texture on the palate… a nice balance of soft and full… ahhhhhh

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2005
Transparent copper orange in color. Crisp, pale, pils malt aroma. Fluffy biscuits and lemon zeal also contribute to the smell. Light and bready flavor. Golden sweet corn. Unimposing and a step up from Totally Naked. Thanks to hezron for sharing this soon to be retired beer.

MIBRomeo (2566) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 12, 2005
an orangish yellow w/ a little cloudiness and a white head that broke up quickly. Aroma is bready a little sweet fruit and something a touch tart. Palate was a little thin but coated well. Flavor is doughy oddly sweet and has a nice mild bitter. Overall an odd style but ok. THanks out to Herzon for sharing.

1FastSTi (3341) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 11, 2005
Thanks to Hezron! The aroma is kind of mild but reminds me of a buttered biscuit with honey. The flavor is tangy. The palate is good. The appearance is kinda piss looking and has a non-existent head.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAY 3, 2005
12 oz bottle. Cloudy gold with a small head. Aromas are sweet biscuit, grains and malt. Taste is nicely hopped, slightly sweet and really smooth. Starts off crisp and mellows out nicely. If it weren’t for the faint lemon taste, it would be too sweet but it’s damn nice.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - APR 19, 2005
Pours honey-gold with a quickly fading layer of off-white head. Mild mint/dill hop aroma, with sweet malt undertones. Some strange tangy vegetal tastes, sweet and earthy. Not bad, but strange. Doughy/bready finish. Palate is fairly full, and a bit flabby. I understand the "fresh from the tank" concept here, but overall, it tastes more rough around the edges than fresh. Very interesting and different style. Thanks hezron for sending this my way!

hezron (610) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 24, 2005
Golden cloudy yellow with some copper. White head that faded quickly. Aroma of doughy yeast, light hay malt and some citrus. Flavor is sweet, buttery malt with a short touch of grassy bitter. Also notice a touch of honey. Medium-creamy body with very soft carbonation. Yummy lager.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAR 23, 2005
Pours a hazy golden orange with a thin white fast disapearing head. Aroma of dough, lemon, yeast and caramel. Flavor of malt, yeasty, and a short bitterness. Light body and light flavor. Wouldn’t be bad outside on a summer day.

auerbrau (3178) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - MAR 9, 2005
Cloudy deep yellow pour with nice white head. Wondeful sheets of broken lacing. Strong apple and wheat aromas, with pleasent rustic cellar background. Sugary and fairly bland on the palate, except for some ethereal depth that I couldn’t put my finger on. Notes of honey and yeast. Palate is too watery. Very drinkable, would try again.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - DEC 23, 2004
From the Facto! Deliciously buttery, bready, crackery. Traces of nuttiness (not sweet, though, more walnut) and bark. I love love love this style. Bottle-conditioned glory, with a steely, crisp noble spicy hop character.
