COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Though it is not necessary to drink this beer out of a mug that is larger than your head while dancing to polka music and wearing your lederhosen, you will find this lager’s unbridled festivity difficult to resist. This ode to Germany’s classic fall lagers is as clean, clear, and quaffable as any that has ever weighed down the table of a German Beer garden. The crisp maltiness of classic Munich malt compounded with the delicious notes of Bavarian hops gives this clean-finishing beer just the right flavor for the end of the summer.

12 oz can purchased at Jack’s Discount Liquor located in Lenexa, Kansas. No date on the can, though presumably this is from last fall. The pour is a mostly clear golden copper with a 1 ½ inch light tan head. Nice retention. The aroma is toasted cracker malt, grass spiciness and a bit of floral sweetness. The taste is the cracker malt along with sweetness, which is more caramel than floral in the taste. Hint of cardboard oxidation. The grass character comes out in the longish finish. The palate is light to medium bodied with active carbonation and the grass aftertaste. Decent, even with the age.

Mora2000 (5527) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Amber pour with a white head. The aroma has a lot of toffee malt in it with not too much else going on. The flavor is similar. I get some toffee and nutty notes as well as a hint of grapes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

BelgianBeerGal (3102) - Panama City, Florida, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Can from Flagstaff. It started out very nice: a good amber color with a nice caramel, lager aroma. The flavor fell a little flat though: decent bitterness but not much else.

12 oz can from Evergreen Discount Liquors. Copper/amber color and clear with an off-white head. Toasted malts, bread, caramel, medium sweetness, light spicy hops and light fruit. Light to medium body, smooth and easy to drink.

deyholla (6483) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Can. Pours a clear gold with a slight orange hue and a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of bread and grains with some biscuit for sweetness. Flavor starts with earthy grain and a touch of grass with biscuit in the finish.

Ibrew2or3 (6767) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 27, 2013
12oz can pours with a clear copper body that supports a thin light tan head. The aroma offers up lagery yeasty notes mixing with apple and fig like fruit as well as a dash of caramel malts. The taste has the same stuff going on as I get sweet fruity esters teaming up with a lagery yeastiness and sugar sweet malts. There’s no real safe haven from the sweetness but that’s to style, sadly.

On draught at Marble Septemberfest. Pours a deep gold with fine white head. Minimum aroma, medium body. Nice malty flavor. Great balance. Well done.

Draft at taproom. Pours brown with a half inch of white foam. Not much on the nose. I get a slight malt note on the tongue. Finishes clean. Eh,
