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, 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.

Draft at the brewery. Nice chugging beer. Light at clean looking. Had that cheap beer taste. Besides that tasted like a beer.

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.

Tap @ Victory. The beer was a clear light yellow color with a white head. The aroma was lightly sweet and malty. Malty and lightly flavored with a grainy finish. Light body with a dry and mildly bitter finish.

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.

Pale yellow color with a white head. Aroma of grain and citrus. Cereal grain flavor with lemon, and some hops. Very nice lager.

Clear pale golden body, thin white head, sparse lacing. Light grainy cereals, gentle floral and grassy hop notes, a touch of cracker. Relatively simple, but clean, medium to light bodied, and decently refreshing.

Looks almost like a BMC product in the glass with a clear gold color with little to no head. Tasted malty more than anything else. I liked it for a lager and found it to be extremely easy drinking. Perfect lawnmower.

pretty decent lager, cool concept to have a recipe based on an old school lager, but i didn’t exactly dig the sweet grassy/corn taste that come with it, but it was very smooth and crisp with a bit of a sweet aftertaste.

Pours clear gold with a tiny white head. Aroma is grass and cereal grains. Taste is sweet with a lightbitter finish. Light and airy. Overall this was pretty good’ it finished clean with no lingering off taste.
