COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bruce describes his classic German-style lager as "pale gold in color with a blend of Pilsner maltiness and a mild hops aroma. The bitterness is just enough to balance the taste of the malt." Bruce is a former music teacher who began homebrewing 13 years ago when his wife gave him a kit for Christmas. He has since become an accomplished homebrewer and shares his knowledge and passion for beer by teaching classes in homebrewing and beer appreciation.

Not bad. Wasn’t too impressed. I think I make a beter Dortmunder style beer.

12 oz. bottle. Aroma is full of sweet malt, yeast, and mild bittering hops - nothing too characteristic. Pours golden with a moderate finger worth of white crown with low retention and lacing. Flavour is fairly balanced between biscuit and malt, and hops. Palate is medium-bodied, moderately carbonated with a rather bitter and yeasty finish. Overall a decent beer but nothing too characteristic. Tastes almost like it smells and although it might be close to style, it’s still my least favourite out of the LongShot pack.

The weakest of the three beers this year, but that does not mean it is a bad beer. Bitter and sour taste; a refreshing beer that would be better served in summer. But who can wait that long?

jgb9348 (4625) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 19, 2007
Very slightly hazy golden coloured body with a nice dense off-white coloured head. Very nice looking beer! Aroma of fresh malt, lemons, yeast, pears and a bit of fresh hops - really nice as well! Medium-bodied; Strong malt backbone - more than you’d expect, plus a potent hop flavour up front shows well. Aftertaste is oddly chewy, with yeast and wheat more noticeable than anything else. Sweetness lingers on the palate - but not overpowering. Overall, a decent beer - I think I liked this better than most, but there isn’t anything necessarily wrong with this offering. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle pulled from the six-pack sampler, drunk on 18-Dec-07.

12oz bottle-pours a foamy white head and hazy yellow color. Aroma is light-malt, grain, secondary citrus/herbal hops. Taste is light-malt, grain, secondary citrus/herbal/spicy hops. OK carbonation. Slight syrupy yet semi-dry mouth feel.

Copying from my tasting notes. Bottle. Golden pour with small head. Malty aroma. Nice taste that finished well. Not bad

Courtesy of Quake1028. It pours a clear deep gold or pale copper with thin off white head. The aroma is malty, pale malts and grains. The flavor is nice with pale to grainy malts and some malt sweetness. Very nice flavor mixture, some Munich too maybe. It seems a little too sweet as the taste moves forward but the grainy and pale malt flavors even things out.

Thanks to unclejedi for the bottle. Been wanting to try this one for a very long time since FL sucks and didn’t get these beers. Golden amber pour, no head, just some loosely collected bubbles and foam. At first I get a big whif if skunky, funked hops, but that goes away very quickly. What’s left is pleasing - sweet crystal malts, grains, citrus hops. Flavor could stand to be a bit more concentrated, but it’s not bad by any means. Citrus malty notes and a pleasing bitter kick. Finish is sweet folding into slight bitterness. Very nice, not as good as the Boysenberry but again a bit underrated I think.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 23, 2007
Upon the pour from the 12 ounce bottle it displays a clear gold, a creamy white head piles on top of the body, with its eventual demise, the lace forms a velum like coating upon the glass. Nose has delectable malt sweetness, citrus line in its crispness, hops also make an appearance with a flowery tones, start has a rich malt profile, sweet with the hops providing a bit of “Twang” at the back. Finish has a spirited acidity, the hops deliciously spicy, aftertaste dry, and a “marvelous” beer overall.

37steel (186) - St. Charles, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2007
12 oz bottle. Hazy dark yellow with a nice white head. Smells malty but the taste is more balanced. A clean finish with a little bit of bitterness. Very drinkable.
