A light pilsner in color and taste. Overall a typical light golden beer, not a lot to note. Notes: Pub visit during ’09 GABF

Slightly hazy golden with a thin white rocky cap. Thin biscuity pale malt nose. Crisp pale lagery flavor that’s clean and bready and quite German with no hop bitterness anywhere to be found. Cerealish and slightly corny but clean and light.

355ml bottle. California common style yeast makes it a bit fruity in the aroma, flavor is not great, but it is drinkable.

Sample at the brewery. No head. Clear amber body. Mild and weak malt straw aroma and flavor with little hops bitterness, low caronation and a short finish.

Now I know why the elk are staggering: they’re about to drop dead after sampling this horrid brew. "Harshly metallic" is the only way to describe the taste. Did I get a bad batch? After 1 1/2 sips we dumped the rest of the bottle down the sink.

Look: pours a dark golden color. Slight cloudiness. Bright white head. Smell: heavy malt. Sourdough bread. Biscuit. Taste: bread. Crackers. Heavy malt. Noble hops, minimal pine flavor. Hint of bitterness on the back end. Feel: medium carbonation. Malt heavy. Very balanced and refreshing. Overall: ok beer. Not a Bad lager. Like the balance. Normally not s lager fan but the mouth feel flavor and aroma are all nicely balanced. First drank: home 11/5/14

"my buddy said this was a great lager on tap, but i wasn’t feeling the bottle. light and fizzy are the keywords. flavor and aroma has cereal malt and light grassy hops, but not much else."

12 oz bottle shared by Huhzubendah’s mother in law, thanks Sue! Pours a clear copper brown with minimal head retention and virtually no lacing. Aroma is mild biscuit malt and a certain unbalanced oxidized note. Flavor is same with a thin mouthfeel and sweet sugary finish.

2.5
Huhzubendah (3753) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Hilarious art work on the label and a great story behind this beer. Copper body, light chill haze with a bubbly tan head. Aromas of lager yeast, heavy fruity sweetness, caramel malt. Eh...mediocre flavor at best. Caramel malt and sweet fruity booze. Pass.

3.3
DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 8, 2014
12oz bottle, purchased from Brennan’s in Madison during GTMW. Clear red orange color. Thin off-white cream colored head. Decent bits of lace. Head fades to minimal in a bit. Caramel malt, dark fruit. Kind of toasty. Moderate sweet taste. Light bitterness. Medium body. Kind of creamy. Smooth, light carbonation. Light slick. Solid stuff, better than expected. Nice to wash my sandwich down with. Pretty drinkable.
