Bot. Smells like a clean lager. :Looks like a lager. Sparkles like a lager. Taste starts off sizzling co2 and then the mild dortness sneaks in. Gets a little slick as the session continues. Becomes a little malty sweet fer sure. Slight caramel finish.

Nephilium (1628) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 6, 2016
Very mild malt aroma, pours a clear light amber with a thin white head. Touch of sweetness, with a hint of fruit notes. Very light bodied with not much going on for a finish. A easy drinking light bodied, session beer, not bad, but nothing special either.

on tap @ Vino Bellissimo / Lima OH --- Clear light amber color, white head cover, bands of lace. Aroma of musty grass. Taste is a watery malt that moves into a shallow, fizzy swallow, then finishes with barely discernible hops. Understated in a very unflattering way.

phaleslu (9017) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Draft sample at Cincy Beerfest 2014 on Fountain Square. Pours a clear gold color with a white head. Big malty notes throughout - sweet, pale, crackery, and even a bit corny - with straw and a dash of fresh grass. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, malty mouthfeel. This was called an American Adjunct Lager on the signage there, and I’d believe that before thinking it was a pure Dortmunder/helles.

bytemesis (6139) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Tap. Pours clear amber, small white head, decent lacing. Aroma is quite light, touch of caramel and bready malt, grass. Flavor is light sweet, little bitterness, caramel, bread. Smoke and clean, but pretty boring. Light body.

JaBier (6496) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2014
Sample at the Brew Kettle on 3/23/14. Clear gold pour with a medium white head. Aroma of grainy and bready malt with slight noble hops. Malty sweetness and bread in the flavor with a noble hop and lager yeast finish. Solid for the style.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Taster on tap at Cincinnati Winter Beer Fest (CWBF) 2014. Clear golden color. Thin off-white head. Dots of lace. Medium body. Smooth, soft, moderate strength carbonation, more dry finish. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Bready taste, light pepper, maybe a light bite. Some nice light citrus notes. Light toasty wood aromas, maybe. Alright lager.
