COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Munich-style Lager brewed for Farmhaus. Farmhaus chef Kevin Willmann selected this lighter style for its ability to pair well with dishes on his menu.

Tap at Perennial. Very slightly hazy light orange pour with a smaller white soapy head. Sweet caramel malts. Bready. Easy drinker. Very good for the style.

phaleslu (7041) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 18, 2012
Draft at Perennial. Pours a bit darker than a typical Dortmunder/helles; rather than a clear gold, this one is more of an orange color with a small off-white head. Notes of pale and cereal malts, grassy hops, straw, crackers, and toasted sugar. Light-bodied, with medium-high carbonation and a crisp, dry mouthfeel. I split a small one with my wife, so I need to try this one again and re-rate when I get a better handle on it.

arminjewell (6986) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of bread, biscuit, some soapy notes, nice malty, caramel notes, some grass and spice. Taste is a mix of grass, bread, nice sweet vanilla, honey, some yeast, finishing bitter, slightly sweet. Nice.

Strykzone (5202) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2013
Pint from a bottle at Perennial. A darker honey gold pour with a kind of funky head. Light lacing remained. This beer was grainy, malty, and nicely hopped. Fruit was nice and it had a moderate bitterness. Some toastiness and a bit of caramel. Nice beer.

vyvvy (4394) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Sampled at Augusta Bottoms Beer Fest - Pours clear copper / orange with an off-white head. The aroma has smooth caramel lager maltiness, good amount of toast, light spice and smooth hazelnut. Medium smooth body with a minor amount of carbonation. The flavor start with slick lager malt, dry caramel, spice, toffee and a nice balance to everything. The finish adds some crusty bread. Really nicely done.

jandd1983 (2887) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - OCT 15, 2012
It poured a golden color with a small white head. The aroma was some maltiness with hops and a little roastiness. The taste was also similar with maltiness and hops. It was a lighter beer than they normally brew, but still very good.

wedgie9 (2487) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 13, 2014
From notes. Tasted on 4/23/13 from a capped 750mL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a thick off-white head that leaves average lace. The nose is bready malt with some spicy, green hops underlying, and just a touch of yeast aroma. The flavor is bread up front, some spicy, bitter, green hops, and the yeast from the nose showing a bit nutty. The body is medium with average, stinging carbonation, and a medium spicy hops and lightly nutty finish.

Bottle picked up at Perennial. Pours a copper color with white head. Grainy, earthy, bready aromas. Toast, grain flavors with a touch of bitterness at the end. Pretty nice lager.
