COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Before Prohibition, thirst quenching lagers were firm and substantial, and enjoyed in huge volumes. This recipe incorporates yeast from the C. Schmidt Brewery of Philadelphia and a small portion of brewer's corn to recreate an 'industrial' lager of the turn of the century.

On tap. Poured a lighter and clear yellow color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of grain, corn, and somewhat fruity. Tastes follow with some honey sweetness. Thinner body. Lacing left on the glass.

Tap at Victory. Sparkling straw with little to no head formation. Nose is muted honey and pineapple juice. Taste is quite nice- biscuity, decently hoppy with mouth watering saltwater and quenching body. Feels at some times like an upgraded malt liquor with sugar and bitter tinniness but far less metallic approaching zero. Still very sweet lagerish all around but unmistakeable Victory malt profile and attenuation. Webby lacing along the glass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gold color, with hopcit and some fruit in the aroma. Tastes malty, withy some hopcit and honey in the finish. This one should keep the chicks happy.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 20, 2009
Tap at CAH. Pours a very light golden clear and a thin white head. Aroma is a touch of corn and vegetal, crackery and cereal notes, but still has some dough and fresh malt, very light hops. Flavor is more corn, dms, slight metallic and reminds me of a bad bud, with a bit of a twang in the end. When you make beers like the v-lager helles, there is no need to make something like this. Ugh.

Draught: Smelled malty as well as of corn and some sweet fruit (like apple). Also smelled of a bit of grassy hops and yeast. Poured golden color with large, dense white head. Very nice lacing. Clear. Slightly sweet and bitter corn flavor. Malty, with a small hop presence mainly in the finish. Light to medium body. Kind of thin and watery. Average carbonation. Short finish. Overall, it’s a classy beer for your average light beer drinker. Not something I would usually drink, but good for a game of quarters.

kramer (4892) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2010
On tap, at brewery. Pours a clear pale gold with a frothy white head. Pale malts, a little corn, and some crackery malt on the nose. Maybe not exciting, but better than most Pale Lagers. Light, clean and refreshing flavor, you can tell there’s corn in there, but it’s a positive in here actually. Light bodied, fizzy prickly carbonation, unusually clean finish for a Pale Lager. Pretty nice, good corn flavor without all the DMS or veggie flavor.

TomDecapolis (4459) - Milton, Delaware, USA - APR 27, 2006
Pours a clear light yellow with an average white foamy head. Aroma of sweet malts, corn and I thought I was even picking up some honey. Flavor of cereal and grains. Overall an easy drinking lager with a light hop presence.
