This beer is built for quenching thirst and cooling down hot summer bodies. Just a touch of sweetness and an easy drinkability make this beer a good choice for beginner beer drinkers.

On tap and sampler served at the Grampfenpils Tapping at RB Yorktown. Showed a hazed, light golden hue, with modest, white head foam, and spotty lacing. The aroma was light yeast, light esters, and a touch of dank grain. Light bodied, the flavor added a touch of honey sweetness, but the earthy, lingering, rind-like hop bitterness was a little too acrid, and disrupted the finish for me.

Draft sampler pour on tap at the brewpub (Lombard, IL). Pours a straw yellow hue, touches of gold glow with just a kiss of haze. Frothy whitish head sparks on top, gentle lacing and sticks around as a film overall. Aromas are gentle grainy malts, touch of lemon, bread, dough, and straw. Gentle sweetness, crisp bready dry malts. Simple. Initial is mellow sweetness, touch of dry earthy hops. Gentle kiss of lemon, grainy malts, bread, cereal grains. Touch of honey, mellow earthy sweetness, straw, grains. Middle is a touch more fruit slanted, some lemon and mellow honey sweetness. Finish is more dry and crisp. Simple yet doable. A summer beginner’s beer. Solid and fresh if underwhelming.
