very refreshing fruity lager. excellent balance between the malt and hops. this is actually one of the better two brother’s products that i have tried, although all have been decent.

MrBunn (2560) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2005
This was on sale at Whole Foods for a whopping $3.99 per six pack. Didn’t expect a whole lot and was pleasantly surprised. (That said, I wouldn’t pay $7 or $8 for it.) Pours a light clouded yellow/amber color that changes a lot depending on lighting. Nice foamy head that doesn’t go away right away. Aroma is weak, hops and grass. First sip is malty with apple undertones that give way to hops that could be a bit stronger. All in all, well worth a try at $4...

I bought this in July, and didn’t get to drinking it until December. It’s surprisingly still OK. It still pours a minimal head, has a carmelly aroma with a hint of hops. You can taste the malt, but the citrusy hops soon take over. It’s not the best balanced, but this may be due to the extended fermentation I left it alone to do over the months.

DocLock (8500) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2004
Pours turbid gold with minimal white head and floaties. Aroma of malt, hopcit, slight honey. Tastes of hopcit, malt, slight fruit. A decent helles. More complex and balanced than most.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2004
Yellow. Dry, malty, slightly medicinal aroma with notes of cooked veggies and herbal, grassy hops. Nice flavor. Nice maltiness fruitiness, with tropical fruits coming into play on the finish accompanied by a lovely, subtle hop bitterness. Light bodied. Not bad.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 16, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2005 A clear golden color with a generous frothy head, this has a nice, mild malty flavor. The light hopping give it a crisp, clean finish. A tasty lager.

Frank (3297) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 18, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2004 A tasty summer treat. Very yellow with a thin head. Refreshing with a nice, mild dose of hops and a bit of fruitiness. Maybe a bit weak on carbonation but satisfying nonetheless.

Braudog (5999) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 16, 2004
Bright yellow and excellently carbonated. Nice floral aroma. Smooth and starchy, sweet and malty with decent bitter finish. Almost as good as the best German lagers, but falls a bit short in character.

Bottled. Nice yellow-orange color. Some fruity notes throughout, with malty-yeastiness. Good medium body. consistent throughout and very drinkable. Good summer session beer.

Bottle into small plastic tasting cup, Humulus Lupus @ Jak’s Tap (Chicago). Not good. Aroma was vinegar, sour, and pilsner. Appeared yellow with no head, but as it was in the little tasting glass, take that with a grain of salt. Tasted kind of sweet with something like garlic, mealy; tasted like a bad macro. Finish was a nice length (unfortunately), but was skunky.
