Bottle pour with a half a finger head. This tastes every bit as good as the imported Dortmunder/Helles I’ve had. Great taste, will buy again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance is a slightly hazy deep yellow with a decent sized white head that goes quick. A bit of lacing remains throughout the life of the brew. Smells of malt and earthy hops with notes of spice and a few other things. This tastes of a wheat/grainy malt flavor with a slight sweetness. There is a small hop taste in there as well but I can’t detect much else. Mouthfeel is decent with good carbonation. This is a beer that would be good to give to someone who is used to macros to try and convert them. A fairly tasty lager that I would probably get again.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Just a poor beer, in my humble opinion. Not much more flavor that a Bud. A bit watery, weak hoppiness for a lager, and the musty aroma of beers that I used to drink in high school. I’d pass on this one if given another opportunity to have one.

On tap at Barley’s in Asheville. Very little white head with a pale golden body. Aroma was mild and of noble German hops. Flavor was a little weak, but not offensive.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a bright, clear yellow/light gold, with moderate white head about an inch thick. Retains for a few minutes, then quickly vanishes, leaving no lacing. Typical weak lager appearance.
My nose detects scents of lemon,citrus, grains and light malt. A little weird, but has character.
Mouth absorbs faint traces of malt and graininess. A slight acidic and bitter citrus-like edge near the end of tasting. probably from hops. Fairly light-bodied, with your typical lager high carbonation.
As you may know I am generally not a fan of plain ol’ lagers(the non-pilsener and non-Oktoberfest kind), so I did not expect much from this. That said, it is what it is. Not supposed to be extraordinary, just an everyday-type session brew. It’s rather average at that, because I know there’s better offerings in this style out there.
