6/6/04 at Ortliebís Brewery. I havenít had many good lagers, or many lagers at all for that matter. No, the standard American megabrews donít count as real beer, either. That said, being a microbrew, this beer is quite good as far as lagers go. Not much head, but the aroma was on the sweet side with a very mild hop presence. Initial taste is sweet and citrusy. Finish wasnít fantastic, but I did like it. This beer is still worlds above Bud, Coors, Miller, etc. Itís not very complex, but it is refreshing.

04.04.04 Tap at Citizen's Bank Park, Philly, PA. Are the Phillies resurrecting old brews? First the Dock Street, now this. Pours a lighter yellow with ample, fizzy, disappearing head in a plastic cup. Not much aroma other than light graininess. Lots of bready malts in flavor; simple, unpretentious, and quite tasty for a ballpark beer. Cheaper than BMC, too! Refreshing (not that I needed that on a cold, wet, day) and could use a touch of dry bitterness at the end. Unassuming and forgettable.

Maize-colored with a grain husk aroma. Standard US lager with a sturdy malt character. OK.

Very average lager, a bit of a darker tint to the golden color, very little head, not a whole lot going on with this brew

This is a fine lager. I enjoyed it very much. Great appearance, good aroma and a balanced, very enjoyable lager. The label is awesome too. Canít go wrong here.
