Pours light brown with a tiny white head. Thick taste for a lager. Very malty and low in hops. On draught at Great American Ballpark. Good for a ball game. whiterabbit81 (244) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2004
Poors nice, good color and an appropriate amount of carbonation. Smell is pleasant, although not particularly prounounced. Taste is very well-balanced, with a nice hops flavor that isn’t overpowering. Slightly bitter finish. This is a refreshing beer that is somewhat flavorful yet not a "tour-de-force" on the tastebuds. Nice local beer for my adoptive home of the next 2 or so years. shrubber85 (11583) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 24, 2004
This is a nice balanced beer for those looking for an American beer that approaches the quality to German beers. It has a nice balanced taste - noted hops flavour but not too bitter. Seems to have lost some of its uniqueness over the past decade but that may just be due to the experience of my palate. Still a good choice that keeps the Cincinnati brewing tradition alive. mec3437 (54) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2004
A bitter aftertaste, but a good brew. Good to see that someone bought it and is going to produce it again. JPDIPSO (6262) - Wauwatosa, USA - APR 1, 2004
Alright, I get to rate two select lagers within a month of each other. This should be interesting. Dark golden with just a hint of orange in the color. smaller off white head. Rising bread dough and flour aroma. Only a hint of hops, light hay, in the nose. Mild crisp feel. Words are escaping me. An amalgamation of pale malt, light oak, petunias and berries (I am thinking blue, but maybe gose). Finish as crisp, with a light caramel apple flavor. Interesting, but I do not envision myself drinking copious quantities of this. Thanks for the efforts slikwily.

Sweet tasting seemed like it was brewed by a confectioner. Distinct caramel taste. Weak aroma was almost non existant. punklawyer (100) - USA - FEB 15, 2004
This is like malt liquor. Great name, good color and nice aroma. Sort of heavy but unpleasantly bitter. SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 4, 2004
Give me a bowl of Camp Washington chili and a bottle of Christian's and I'm in Cincy Heaven! Not a great beer, but definitely one with local color. effervescent and light in body, a maltier alternative to the standard Hudepohl. Braudog (6804) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Light orange with a quickly disappearing head. Initially strong sugary alcohol aroma and flavor, reminiscent of malt liquor, but this is a fuller malt-bodied to make it a better beer than Old English 800. jazz88 (2683) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 28, 2003
Bottle. Hazy golden orange color with a white head. A strong malty flavor that was assertive and enjoyable for the style. A wheaty texture.
