12 oz bottle. Bottle and 6 pack carrier indicate Newport KY brewing. No dates anywhere and cery cheap, so I was relieved that this is a decent beer ... an unremarkable lawnmower beer, but plenty drinkable. Actually, the aroma is fairly appealing for style, albeit light in hops.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. A piece of Cincinnati brewing history. Pours a clear pale yellow with a smallish half finger white head. Very minimal head retention with just a little bit of lacing. Aroma is bready malt mixed with corn and wet hay. A little metallic with some DMS showing through as well. Bread mixed with grassy hops on the taste along with an assertive bitterness that lasts all the way through. No metallic taste and the hops shine through more than they do in the aroma. Less DMS too. Overall, this is not bad at all for a budget beer. I’d like to think this is similar to a Classic American Pilsner and what might have been enjoyed by the masses 50 years ago. A lot better than today’s fizzy yellow beer.

A pale-straw brew that is serviceable for a decent drink: it has caramel, nut, and a little burst of hops in there as well. Okay. 12oz bottle

My bottle might be a bit old but I have no way of knowing. It’s a bit cloudy with a small white head. Noise is mostly malt with a bit of sort of citrus-like hops. Taste is pretty clean with a crisp earthy bitterness in the finish.

Draft sample at Listermann Oktoberfest. Pours a clear bright gold with a massive white head, though that may have been from a particularly difficult jockey box. Notes of pale malts, straw, grass, minor citrus rind, white bread- simple and clean. Light-bodied, with high carbonation and a crisp, refreshing mouthfeel. Not bad at all. Glad this is readily available in the area.

12 ounce bottle. Served in a pilsner glass, the beer pours a clear gold color with almost an inch white head. Head retention is decent, and there’s a small amount of lacing. The brew smells like sweet malt and corn. It tastes like bready malt/grain/corn, it’s a mostly sweet tasting brew. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s easy to drink and is well carbonated. It’s not a bad beer, but not great either. I might be rating this too high, but there really isn’t anything offensive or bad about this. It’s just an average pilsner overall. Worth a try if you can get a single bottle like I did. $1.58 a single at Party Source.

Pale gold color with a small white head, thin streaks of lace. Taste is sweet malt (even though I suspect an adjunct is present as well), with light bittering and carbonation to clean up the finish. Different from the original Wiedemann Beer, but not necessarily an improvement. Check out Falls City (Louisville) to see how things can be substantially improved.

Bottle @ home. Not sure who the heck sent me this. I spose Dr. Silverworm. Thanks! Pours a golden appearance with a white head. Blah, sweet grainy, corny aroma. Sweet corn on the cob, a bit husky, somewhat bitter hoppy flavor. Scroll past.

Draft. Light barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Lightly sweet barley malt. Very good - head and shoulders above the average pale ale.

bottle from the Greyhound Tavern in Fort Mitchell - pours pale yellow with little white head. flavor is straw with light malts. light bitterness. funky aftertaste as in metallic. I’m no longer curious about this one, next.
