I get this beer sometimes when kicking around Philly. If you’re in the city, you’ll see around. Its character has been sufficiently described, so I will say, give it a try if you’re in Philadelphia and don’t know what to get.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at MOM’s - Doylestown, PA. Salt, mineral and light cracker aroma. Flavors are straightforward, simple and sharp. Sadly, the menu listed this as a Kolsch, so my perceptions were skewed, but the hoppiness was right on for a Helles, if a little generic. There was a slight harsh mineral bite to this that cut into the drinkability and the pale malt depth was a little shallow. Otherwise, clean and workable.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Wegman’s. Pours clear yellow with a medium sized white head, active carbonation. A nice looking lager. The aroma has a bit of grain, light grass, pretty tame but not offensive in any way. The taste has a nice little hop kick up front, some grassy flavors mid tongue.. and a dry finish. Not bad at all in the style.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle from the sampler case. Not much to say about this beer in the positive. So glad I at least got a free glass for buying the case.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the beer store. Pours copper with a lacy head. Aroma of lots of nutmeg and cinnamon, pumpkin, caramel, and some floral hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent pumpkin beer. Might not be the right beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
El Bar, Philadelphia: Pours a golden colour with a white head. Aroma is grain and hops. Taste is pretty much the same. It is very easy to drink quickly. It has more hops than does the archetypical Dortmunder. For some reason I was always under the impression that this beer was a golden ale. In any case, it is good to finally get this rating out, as I have had this many times over the years, but have only just now rated it.
