COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Continental style lager enjoyed throughout Europe. Visions of the Liter Stein-laden "Bier Fraus" bespeak the drinkability of this smoothest and most quaffable of lager beers. Less hoppy than Pilsner and very drinkable. Deep straw color. Balanced with Bavarian hops. Aged a full 6 weeks at 32°F.

Pours a clear golden yellow on tap with bubbly white head that dissipates to leave good lace. Aroma and taste of fruity, clean yeast esters and light bread malts. Crisp and refreshing, good for the style.

shadey (2068) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 30, 2015
5oz sample from honeymoon. This is a style that usually under-performs for American brewers. This one is example. The aroma and flavors are bland and flat. Given the line-up on tap there is a better beer for every situation.

freekyp (1855) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Clean clear dark yellow. Some bready malt in the note. Nice spicy hop finish. But suffers from a sewery overtone, that is likely unclean lines. Note to brewer: Just because your crowds are nearly guaranteed due to your placement in a tourist destination does not mean that mediocrity in your beers/food/service are ok. Step it up.

5oz on tap at Smoky Mountain in Gatlinburg. Light pale yellow color, small white head. Aroma is light sweet malts, touch of crispness. Sweet malt, light crisp notes. Easy drinking, perhaps a touch sweet but drinkable.

Theydon_Bois (16262) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2015
Keg at Smoky Mountain Turkey Creek, 16/02/15. Clear golden with a moderate off white cap. Nose is pale malt, orange, light vanilla. Taste comprises caramel, light citric peel, pale malt, faint bread, straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Pretty bland affair, mediocre.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2015
5oz on tap at Smoky Mountain in Gatlinburg. Corn flavor up front, bread. Sweet malt. Very little bitter. Clear yellow color. Minimal ring of white head. Medium body. Kind of slick, syrupy texture. Very light carbonation. Not a great helles - bit light on carbonation. Sweet and malty, not much else.

Crystal clear gold. Toaster malt in the flavor and less hop aroma than the light. Duller flavor.

Patrickctenchi (5796) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 4, 2014
Draft: Clear gold with a small white head. Corn, grain aroma. Sweet grain and corn malt taste. Light, but a decent bit of maltiness in the body.... Overall a pretty weak example.
