4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the Publick House: I dont know why this one is rated so much lower than the Dortmunder. This is a very similar beer and is just as good. It is however more delicate and is lower in alcohol so maybe that has something to do with it. Pours very light gold with a small white head. Aroma is of pilsner malt and just a hint of hops. Flavor is very malty but not cloyingly sweet at all. Like I said this is very delicate, but it goes down nice and smooth and is a very quaffable brew. Should change the category to Munich Helles Lager. Pale lager sounds like this should be a BMC equivalent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2008 Almost clear yellow color (Bud-like). Sweet, light malty taste thats not too sweet and just a little dry. Has a bit of an effervescent mouthfeel although it has a rather smallish head. Very refreshing and very well balanced.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the pub...
Crystal clear, light yellow lager with a small, fizzy, white head. Butterscotch, lemon and straw in the nose. The flavor is sweet, malty and slightly tangy. Maybe a little short on hops for a golden lager. A little too sweet up front. Light-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, decently bittered finish... the hops finally make an appearance. Too little. Too late.

This poured golden allright, with a nice foamy head. Aroma was crisp with hint of citrus and floral hop. Decent lace for a lager. Good bold flavor of warm bread, hint of grapefruit up front, nice finish with a good amount of hop for the style. I had another pint, and I would call this a great session beer. Another fine offering from a great brewery.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of buckwheat honey, light and pleasing on the palate, refreshing and quaffable, bright medium gold on the eye. Nice for a low-grav lager.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A decent lager. Light, golden color, diminishing head. Nothing really stands out in particular about this beer other than it is easy to drink, and it mimicks the German style well.

This is a pretty decent lager. Probably one of the better lagers I've had. However, since I tried so many of their beers in one shot, this paled in comparison to most, if not all of them. Very wheaty - bread-like. If you like lagers, you'll love it, but I had to move on to bigger and better things. Good thing you can get beers in 4 ounce sample glasses, because this was def. a beer I wouldn't want to waste the money on a full pint of.
