3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2010 Re-rating 9/27/2010: Much the same, had it on draught, but I’ll also add that it’s a great session beer for conversation and friends. And you have to love supporting something local. Again had at the Green Rock Tavern, 2546 E Lehigh Ave, Philly.
4/10/2008: Light, chipper, bounces off tongue. Drank at Green Rock Tavern, FISHTOWN. Good tavern, good people.

Pours a light yellow color with a clean malt aroma. Taste is a bit hay like but mellow and very drinkable. Just enough hops to tickle the tongue that lingers a bit. The aftertaste is clean and simple, with a thirst quenching effect. Happy I got to try this on South Street in Philadelphia.

Clear golden body, medium to thin white head, minimal lacing. Crackery cereals and light grassy hops. Medium bodied, appropriate carbonation, could be a touch drier, mellow bitterness in the finish.

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.

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.
