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.

bhensonb (10978) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 5, 2007
Aroma of lighter malt with noticeable hop. Brassy color with a decent white head that even attempts to lace. Medium bodied, starts a bit sweet from the malt, there is a hop bite that pleasantly offsets the malt, and the finish has enough bitter to satisfy. There are some delicate fruit notes along the way.
