A really delightful beer. With a lighter body that is a nod to the light Lagers that helped them survive for many decades, and a high quality malt flavor and bright citrusy hops that are a nod to the craft brews that sustain them today. Kind of an American hopped Dortmunder? Very drinkable.

This was a pretty decent beer. Thickish on the tongue, with a light fresh taste. Bready malt body.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer is light orange colored and fairly hazy. The white head is a finger thick, displays decent retention, and leaves some sparse lacing on the pint glass. The aroma offers fruit, wheat, malt, light hops. The flavor is decent. The beer is slightly sweet, with malt and fruit flavors. The body is pretty thin, with solid carbonation. Overall, a decent brew. I would try it again.

A little past its prime but the hops still do come through. Reminds of a german export style.

Poured an amber/gold color with a nice frothy head that faded slowly to lacing. Aroma was nice - bready, sweet malt, fruity. Taste was pretty decent as well - hoppy (high to moderate), nutty malt backbone. Palate was above average too. Overall, a nice Vienna lager in the vein of Sam Adams.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a copper gold into the glass with a nice head of pearl colored foam. Nose is mostly malt. Creamy on the palate, the taste is light hops on the front end, light malt and bread in the middle and a hop kicker on the finish. Overall, a pleasant sipping beer that pairs well with summer picnic food.

Bottled. Poured clear, medium orange with a short, sticky off-white head.. nice lacing followed it down. The aroma picked up sweet caramel and redder fruity notes with fresh pine resin and grassy accents.. really, really clean. The flavor found sweet, lightly-toasted caramel at the core, with fresh, prickly pine and leafy bitterness throughout.. refreshing, lingering bitterness and simple, but tasty malts on the finish. Lighter-bodied with moderate-plus carbonation on the palate.. good flow to it.

This one is even worse than their Pils, though along the same lines. Added some flavor complexities? They sure have, just the wrong ones. Its only saving grace is that it is seasonal so that we do not have to dump it out year round.

1.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
starts with minimal, nearly undetectable flavor, followed by a strange unpleasant bitterness. not hoppy, just an artificial seeming bitterness. i donít know what they were going for, but this certainly canít be it. one of the worst beers iíve ever had.

Bottle in hotel room, picked up at a Hy-Vee in Lincoln, NE. Clear, dark gold appearance with an off white head. Sweet creamy, grainy, light citrus, hay aroma. Easy drinking, sweet grassy, lightly herbal, straw flavor. Easy drinking and pretty nice.
