COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic Munich-helles style lager with the emphasis on complex malt flavors and low hop character - in accordance with the style. Brewed with 2-row pale and Caramel 60 malts and Saaz and Hallertau hops. This was the first American beer to certifiably pass the Bavarian Reinheitsgebot Purity Law of 1516.

Your pretty standard lager. Slight malt hops in nose and mouth. Nothing special here. Rated 3/20/03

I had thid one back on 8-28-06. Bottle. Poured golden. Head was semi smooth, but fizzy and crisp. Smell was cornish and malty. Taste was just as such. Slight malt, slight hops. Not too bad.

Goldenrod with a thin white head gone in a jiffy. Aroma of noble hops, caramel and munich malts. Taste of munich malts, sweet malt and mild noble hops. Semi corny aftertaste that finished dry and mildly astringent. Mild sweet finish lingers on with a touch of skunk.

12 oz bottle. I had this months and months ago, when one my friends brought some to a party. He had worked at Lion Brewery over the summer. It tasted pretty good, but the reason I never rated it was because I wanted to try it again sober. So, I think my rating may be inaccurate.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark golden/light amber color with a smaller white head. The aroma is mildly sweet malt with a hint of floral hops. The flavor is mostly caramel malts, bread, and the slightest amount of hops present. Decent, but not something I would revisit often.

The aroma does not set this beer apart from most lagers save the slightly roasted character. It’s mostly malt and grassy hops. The appearance is a dark gold with a small head and some floating particles. The flavor is quite nice. It’s toasted and sweet like toffee but only a little. The finish is mild and bitter. The palate is smooth. As lagers go this one is Yummy!
