Smooth and drinkable, yet malty and complex with a noble hop kick. Church Street’s Continental Lager marries four German malts with three German hop varieties to create this quintessential beer. Notes of biscuit and grassy/floral hops make this a great beer to kick back with anytime. Enjoy!

So swamped by old notes it’s not funny. Here’s the beer I tasted in April at Cellar Door. Nice golden pils color, looks a little hazy with some thick but dwindling foam. Slightly grainy, sourish smell, perhaps. But taste is just on target for a light beer style. Slightly baked biscuit malt with a note of honey. German hops are quite sharp and peppery. Despite the light abv, a full shaker is pretty substantial. No watered-down megabrew this. I keep comparing it to a pils, but it only lacks the Czech hard water profile to make an examplar.

Ready for a righteously good beer. Dark golden color with a near white head. Strong aromas, with toasted biscuits, light phenols, and heavy herbal hops, Light sweetness. Hints of pale malt, followed by floral and herbal hops. Hints of ripe light fruit. Too many esters, and not a crisp clean lager as I would hope for a continental lager. 1/14

Courtesy of Strykzone Poured gold with a white head. Nose of grassy hops. Medium body. Flavor light malts and grassy hops. Finishes sweet not bitter. Easy drinking and simple.

12 ounce bottle. Honey gold with a big almost white head. A Euro hop aroma is light. The flavor is gently hopped with light bitterness. Soft spice and sulfur. Grain is just as light. Honey, bread, and, cereal hops add sweetness. This is on the dry side but finishes quite sweet.

vyvvy (6476) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 5, 2016
Pours mostly clear gold with a white head. The aroma has lightly toasted malt, spicy hops and more of a richness than most pils. It has a medium body with lighter carbonation. The taste has spicy herbal hops, toasty malt and rounded lager aspect. Good.

Draft at source. Nose is clean and neutral. Sweet malt character without any off flavors or sulfur. Super fucken clean lager. Mild hop pepper but that’s about it. Very clean.

Thanks to iNBe. All around decent version of a euro pils. Minerally and lager aroma just right. Nice. Serving: Bottle

Draft at Bottlefork. Noble hops and lemon dish soap on the nose. Grassy, hay, slightly grainy. Crisp clean finish.

12/28/14. 12oz bottle from the Milan Hy Vee. Lightly hazed orange pour with a fluffy off-white head that cuts but laces fairly well. Bready aroma, faintly floral, mild lemon peel... shockingly mild and inoffensive compared to the other brews I’ve had from them. Muted bready flavor, muddy, doughy, a touch of apple, cream corn, lingers almost tart in a way, green apple or lemon juice in a way. This brewery has issues.

Aroma is citrus, grains/malts and spices. The flavor is grains/malts, citrus, fruit, mild spices and a mildly tart finish.
