1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Sigh, I’m not sure why I expect much from a flagship lager.. this one tasted like macro swill. Pale yellow straw color, corn nose... bleh.
Pours golden with a simple foam head. The aroma is of lager yeast, bread, and basic malts. Tasting is crisp, refreshing, of malted bread, light sugary taste, and some yeast character in the flavor. The body is thin, it has a soft bitterness, and the after taste is good. Overall a good lager style brewed beer. BuckeyeBoy (7937) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 24, 2016
On tap at Appalachian Brewing. Pours out a golden topped with a white head. Nose is grain some corn earthy notes. Taste is more of the grain and earth tones. Block (2845) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - AUG 21, 2016
A basic lager, lots of biscuit and yeast flavors. Sweet. Light. Not too complicated. BytesAndBrews (66) - - AUG 6, 2016
Pale straw color, thin white head, light clean aroma. Well balanced drinkable lager. books_n_brews (162) - Baltimore-ish, Maryland, USA - AUG 6, 2016
Pours on tap clear caramel color light white head. No clear aroma. Medium hop profile. A bit sweet but not bad. Not quite as smooth as finish as advertised.

Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (grain, cereal), lightly hoppy (herbs), with notes of concrete, egg white, DMS, metal. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Dirty and sloppy. A dumper. Patrickctenchi (6628) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAY 16, 2016
Clear gold with a short, off-white head.
Grain malt, honey scent.
Taste is sweet, barley malt, creamy grains.
On the sweet side, but a pretty decent offering. Sirmixsomewhat (266) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2015
This is a good beer. It’s kind of sweet for a lager, but it doesn’t insult you with its odd approach to a lager. It’s good! One thing I noticed is that it didn’t keep particularly well, but I found that to be the case with the other beer I bought from ABC as well. It may be their packaging that doesn’t last.

DATE TASTED: November 15, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: pilsner... OCCASION: finishing off a football Sunday... APPEARANCE: clear, golden body that has a steady, sparse display of bubbles; the head clumps in marshy pools of off-white fuzz, with a solid ring solidifying the outside of the glass... AROMA: fresh dough intermingles with aromatic flowery fragrances; some uneven yeastiness keeps the aroma from complete allure.... PALATE: light, nearly flat body that allows for maximum sipping; little carbonation; watery, forgettable aftertaste... TASTE:slight buttery flavor with some maltiness to suggest a biscuit; some of that flowery, hoppy lightness attempts to balance the experience... OVERALL: a solid Dortmunder that offers a bit of nuance but also resides in the style’s parameters...

Poured from the tap into a pint glass at the brewery in Gettysburg, PA. This beer has a clear golden color with a small white head. the aroma is big on grass and malt with heavy carbonation. The flavor matches the aroma with grass, malt and some malt to finish the mix. Not a bad beer, good with quesadillas or nachos.
