Tap. Golden body, white head, spicy nose with malt accent. Malty, lightly spicy hops, refreshing. As with all light lagers, this is underrated at this site.

Goodgrief (1832) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - AUG 17, 2007
July 2005 - Light color, almost clear with little head and lacing. Taste is sweet and lemony with a creamy mouthfeel. It looks like a macro, but has pretty good taste. A nice mild offering.

This was alright, but I just don’t think I’m a real fan of the helles styles. Beer had a slightly malty aroma with some cereal type notes. golden in color with a moderate carbonation and firm white head. flavor was matly and pretty dry, but nothing to really brag about. medium bodied lager. meh
