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.

This one was a dead goose next to the V12 and Old Horizontal. Well its pretty much standrard issue stuff. Clear yellow appearance with some corn and a little bit of malt. This exists to keep the barflys playing pool happy and drunk. Its the cash cow beer. No thanks.

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.

I never met a beer i didn’t like, but this came close. Should be served in 40z bottles in a brown paper bag.

Not a lager dude but I had to give it a shot. Pours a clear, medium gold body with a small, and I do mean small, white head. All malt aroma. Flavor is that of a cheap macro lager. Not my thang.

Pours a pale yellowish color with a thin head. The smell is very bland nothing too intense to pick up. The flavor is maltyand has some bitterness. Overall carbonation is ok and is refreshing out of a keg.

On draft at Just sports with Stegosaurus. Pours pale golden with a thinwhite head. aroma of sweet malts. Flavor is watered down? not much flavor, very weak for victory.

Tap....you must be kidding me. Pours a pale golden color with decent carbonation. Smell is Saaz hops as if this were a pilsner...Taste is grainy with a slight hint of corn and absolutely nothing behind it. It seems like they were deliberately trying to make something that would evoke the crappy macrobrewed pale lagers, and they succeeded.

Not much aroma at all and it looks like a bud light in the glass. I notice a bit of lemon in the flavor, but this beer overall is very light with not much body.
