Tap @ Church - a forgettable lager. Golden yellow, a bit astringent and piney. Hay, grass and lagery notes. After the coconut stout, unremarkable. j12601 (12000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 29, 2010
On tap at Church on our way to RBSG. Pours a clear gold with a medium sized white head. Soft hay and light crackers, little bit empty. Clean and softly sweet, a bit of grain. Touch sweet on the finish, crackery and grainy crisp bitterness. alobar (3800) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2010
Clear straw yellow color with no head. Aroma of grain, grass, and some hops. Smooth with a malt flavor and a slight hop ending. SSKD814 (854) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2010
A- Nice German lager appearance. Clear straw yellow body with thick foamy white head. Head fades to 1/2 finger and leaves behind little lacing in the glass.
S- Pale malt with a refreshing hop balance.
T- Suprisingly sweet. A good balance of pale malt and caramel malt upfront. Refreshing mild bitter hop finish. Sweet caramel malt lingers. Tastes more to me like a Munich Helles than a German Pilsner. The malt is stronger than the hops but it is a nice light taste.
P- Low carbonation and light body. Smooth and creamy. Goes down easy.
O- Nice drinkable German lager. Something that I enjoyed and will have again. This is a great offering on tap.

Pours a pale gold color with a very thin white head. Aroma is barely there, but is of both hops and some malt. Flavor is grassy with some hops. A very crisp clear beer with very little flavor. Would probably make a nice session beer.

Bottled. Golden pour with pretty much no head. Aroma is muddy, band-aid, radish, a little lime. None of the hallmarks of a German pils, as the label claims. Crisp body, a bit clammy, surprisingly thick for 4.1% pale. Easy drinking at least. dolemike1 (1288) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2010
Bottle: Slightly skunky grassy aroma with a lttle hint of malt to redeem itself. Flavor was ... ehh... a bit of malt, with a lot more of the grassy notes in the finish. Not a favorite. Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2010
Enjoyed via draft in a pub glass. The beer pours a straw-colored to medium golden hue, with a medium white head. Carbonation is accurate for the style, and markedly less than the American and European standard and premium lagers. The nose is rather slight, but does give a nice hint of German character malts, with a nice nod to Munich malt, in particular. The palate is a touch thin, but not out of character, for the style. Malt character up front: pils, Munich, and perhaps a touch of Vienna, before a nice, firm bitterness via continental hops. The finish is clean, slightly bitter, and semi-dry. Overall, this is a well-made example of the style. It is truly a shame that so many ratebeerians do not have a full comprehension of the BJCP style guidelines, and rate beers soley on their alcohol content, their IBUs, or whether they have been aged in oak. douglas88 (9195) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 23, 2009
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear golden color with a large white head. A sweet grainy nose, light honey. A smooth and tasty flavor; grainy earthy malts, light honey and a touch of bitter hops. Nice and easy. JaBier (7973) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - NOV 15, 2009
Sample at CBW. Clear gold pour with a thin white head. Creamy malt aroma that makes me think it contains corn, also some light and crisp hop. Flavor is crisp hop up front with creamy and sweet malt in the middle before a thin dry finish.
