Had a bottle of this at the TGIF 'Fridays' restaurant in Cincy. This brew pours a clear sparkling honey amber. The large creamy white head is mostly diminishing with fair lacing. The light clean nose is mostly caramel with some perfumed floral notes. The sweet flavor had hints of citrus, flowers, caramel, with a touch of spice, but was overall typical bland lager fare. The average finish was nutty. The light soft body is creamy and smooth with a slight astringent and alcoholic finish. Very refreshing, would make a good session beer.

Nothing real special. Very sweet malt flavor. Hallertau hops are slightly evident. Not bad, but nothing special. Aurelius (5658) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2001
Aroma: Smells like a German beer, but perhaps a little sulphury?
Appearance: good, nothing special gold-amber
Flavor 13, good but not remarkable. Does indeed taste like a German beer.
Palate: somewhat thin and under carbonated.
Good beer but nothing to write home about. Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 14, 2001
Has a nutty, bread-like quality that I find appealing... but I don't like the cloying 'stickiness' in the finish. Too much 'sweet' also; I yearned for more 'crisp & clean' in this Lager. Otherwise, not bad. Finishable. Beer Guy99 (251) - Maineville, Ohio, USA - AUG 27, 2001
An out of the park grand slam! This is the beer you've been looking for. A rich, malty Munich helles lager and the first U.S. beer to certifiably pass the German Reinheitsgebot Purity Law of 1516. This is a serious German-style lager. It was named 1998 World Champion Munich helles and has won more than its share of gold, silver and bronze medals all over the world. Sam Adams is good but Christian Moerlein is better and a lot more rare. Even better on draft than in the bottle! This is one of the original craft beers and well worth seeking out. Sells for about $5.99 for a 6-pack.
