COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the tradition of the Helles (Pale) lagers that are popular in the Bavaria region of Germany. This lager is deep golden in color with a pleasant, malty aroma balanced by a rich, smooth flavor. Troutbrook Brewing Company uses only authentic Moravian and German malts along with a Bavarian lager yeast strain to create this smooth and flavorful brew. Cool fermented and aged for six weeks, this beer is made to be delicate but yet still hearty. This beer is great anytime of year but particularly refreshing in the summer. Cheers!

Slubgob (183) - West Hartford, USA - FEB 16, 2012
One of Hooker’s better offerings. Light in three glass, crisp in three mouth with a good hours bite, a solid undertone of wheat in the body to lingers into the finish after the hops have faded.
