I changed my mind josef hoffbrau, isn’t the worst beer i ever drank, this is.Putrid soury wheat beer/lemon aroma, nice head, nice lacing, creamy texture, but the flavor is like you opened a can of grapefruit juice, left it open in the refrigerator for two weeks carbonated it and tried to drink it. Off grapefruity like flavors with a slight tinniness.

Bottle thanks to somebody, rating from my backlog. The smell is weak, malts, floral, and corn. The look is clear, whitish head, and golden in color. The taste is malts, floral, grains, and slight sweetness.

Served in a can, so I’m not entirely sure of the color and head. Tastes like a mass produced pale lager from years gone by. Sweeter, more body and hops that the pale lagers now. Kinda cool to find such a prominent taste of Cluster hops.

topherh (1912) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - MAR 7, 2012
Pours clear yellow. Sweet, wet grain, corny aroma with hints of metal. Flavor is much the same. Tastes like a typical mass produced pale lager.

If you gave this beer to me while I had a blindfold on and told me it was a pils I would call you a liar. Since when is dishsoap a prominent pils flavor?

I love the micros that come in cans. Thanks to cheapdark, I tried this one again!!! My last one was about 20 plus years ago. When micros first started getting popular in the Pittsburgh area, this was one of the first brews that got “hot” fast, but then faded out. Now, I remember why. I remember people enjoying this beer, I think again because the micro industry was new, and long before many really good beers and breweries popped up. The name alone was worth the taste.

Yea, so what, I couldn’t wait to try this brew, come on, pigs eye, yea. Let me say first off this brew is much more than the 4.5% listed here. This is much more high gravity and it tastes like it. Not a pilsner by any stretch of the imagination. Sweet rude awakening for an olfactory. First taste? Revolting at first then it grows on you like a city brewing kind of way. Almost gag but not quite there. Melanie all the way way across the continuum of pale lagers like brew city, camo, evil eye, milwaukee classic ice, pennsylvania style ice, jaguar, I think you got it now; just mix those all together and you got this. I’ll give 0.1 extra points for the name and label, best thing going for it.

Pour from a 12 oz can. Clear golden yellow lager with a white head, big bubble of carbonation. Aroma of corn, adjunct, a little grass. Flavor is light, a little sweet grain and a kiss of hops in the finish. Now and then I get a slight vegetal whiff, but it does not seem to be consistent. Overall, not bad considering the price but then, nothing to write home about.
