COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the style of Dortmund, Germany, this golden lager has a delicate caramel malt character, balanced by a light body and mild German noble hops, creating a crisp, refreshing finish.

From the can into a St Feuillien glass. Pours gold with head and lace. Aroma of light malts and floral hops. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of sweet malts, grassy and floral hops, honey, light grains, yeast, and breadiness. Overall a nice body and flavor...good representation of the style although a tad sweet.

Bottle at home from backlog notes 07. Pours a clear golden colors with a medium sized white head that didnít last. The aroma and flavor have grainy and cereal malts, grass, mild spicy hops, light caramel, not very exciting.

Glass at barcade. Pours light golden with smaller head. Notes are malt, yeast and grains. A little too yeasty for itís own good.

ryecatcher (718) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Can. Pours a clear, pale straw color. Thin white head, not much retention or lacing. Nose is light malt, grain, wet cardboard, faint noble hoppiness. Mouth is thin, grain and malt, lemongrass, metallic, hoppy bitterness. Better than Stella or Miller... but thatís not really hard to do. Mediocre at best.

Orange tinted amber. Small off white head that disappears quickly. Yeasty aroma and taste. Some malt in there. Typical Helles taste.

From a yellow can. Pours a clear straw to pure golden with an eggshell head that settles to a film and leaves some soapy lace. Nose involves soft bread, honey, spicy noble hops, and some pleasant subtle rain forest. Fairly sweet and fairly bitter. Medium to light bodied, creamy, softer, with a doughy yeast and drying spicy hop bitter finish. Really enjoyable, well made brew. Imminently drinkable.

One of the better lagers out there. Not overly bitter and really easy to drink. Had in a can at a roof top party ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aurelius (4028) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 28, 2014
Cute pup on the can. Clear, yella beer, white clingy head. Generic lager aroma, a little corny smelling. Some off over-sparged flavors, musky malting, a little graham cracker sweetness. Medium body, sort of a frothy mouthfeel. $10.99/6 - Are you #@@$ kidding me, ABC Liquors - glad I just got one.

PorterPounder (5340) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 25, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz can. Pours a slightly hazy medium golden, a little bit of a glint to it, thin white bubbly head. Aroma has some fresh lake water accents, a touch of wort and spent grain. Flavor is true to the style with lots of grain, some grassy notes, a touch of nuttiness and just a hint of yeast. Mouthfeel has a pleasant thickness to it, Good sturdy very drinkable lager.

Nuffield (3657) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Pours yellow with moderate, quickly-disappearing head. Full-flavored, giving some sweetness up front, a metallic edge, some corn and chemical-like flavors, and a light to moderate hop finish. I felt pressure (internal) to like this, because if it is brewed by a good brewer like this, one might think that it is just your failure to appreciate the style. But in the end, I didnít regret pouring half my glass down the drain. It was too rough in its chemical qualities. Can.
