A full-bodied lager with lots of malt and hop character. A touch hoppier than many lagers yet perfectly balanced with lots of fruity hop character and fragrance.

Onslow (1372) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Pour from a 22oz bottle. Clear pale yellow brew with fizzy white head. NOt much aroma but what there is light malt, a little grass. Taste is a little sweet, a little bread, some drying in the finish which I suppose is hops. On the up side no off flavors or vegetal tastes or odors. Think palate. Comparable to a better mainstream lager.

Bottle. As far as PLs go this is one of the best. Not my favorite style but a good beer all the same.

Crisp yellow color with great clarity, one finger pour that dissipates quickly. Fairly fragrant aroma for a light lager, grain and flowers. Nice flavor of grain, hop bitterness is evident, slightly metallic. Dry. Rather good for a light lager.

Very solid lager. Nothing spectacular, but it has a grassy/hop nose with a smooth easy drinking body. A little light in some flavors, but good nonetheless. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at dinner. Pours a golden color with a small lacy white head. Earthy, skunky, buttery, and crisp. Decent quaffer.

sfuen03 (357) - Barcelona, SPAIN - NOV 26, 2012
355 ml. bottle. Standard appearance for a lager: glittering golden color with a standard white head and a vivid carbonation. Weak aroma, a little hop and bread, but nothing remarkable. Taste is above the standard for a lager, a little hoppier, simple, light and correctly balanced.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 16, 2012
550ml bottle. Clear light yellow color. Big foamy fizzy white head. Quickly shrinks to a reasonable size. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Medium body. Lightly sweet taste, little savory. Some salted bready flavor. Straight-forward, but clean and tasty. Solid lager.

nike (966) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2012
16oz bottle, pale, golden clear, white foam, perfect pale lager. Great taste, hoppy taste (not overwhelming) that I was surprised to find in a lager, balanced, with malt backbone. Clean, crisp taste. Overall, an organic beer that I found enjoyable.
