COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This smooth lager strikes a delicate balance between malt and hops in the aroma, palate, finish and body. It has more body and less hops than a Pilsner, and less malt and more hops than a Munich style lager. 30 IBU.

Draft, at GLBC. How did I miss trying this until now? Good pils color and a nice German hops smell. Thin head. A striking pale malt taste yes, a pale-type lager with taste with that slight note of hardened water. Nicely done.

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2007 Bottel for this review, but have had draft-brewery also. Pours clear with a decent sized white head. If you like balanced brews this one is for you. When fresh, this is the king of American craft brewed lagers. Perfect on a hot summer day!

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 31, 2005
Gold. Delicate, perfumey, herbaceous nose wth a light, clean, honey grain smell. Large body and fairly flavorful, quite complex for this style, which I am not very familiar with. Really toasty and rich, grassy and earthy with well developed malt flavors.

Ernest (7476) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 31, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2015 Bottle (BB Jan 09, 2016). Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is moderately hoppy (toasted bread, grain, cereal), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, faintly husky. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. A touch rough/raw in the malt department, but otherwise fairly decent.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 31, 2005
Rich grassy hop aroma. Thin head, murky orange. Light bodied, sweet with grassy bittering hops. Slight earthiness.

thegreenrooster (4148) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 30, 2005
Pour is a bright gold with a white head. Aroma is malty with a touch of hops. Flavor is crisp and dry. Malts used in this one carry the beer. If you in the mood for a malty lager then this is for you.

Tubbfan (147) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - JUL 24, 2005
Poured an orange/gold. Decent, soapy head that dispersed within a few minutes. Nice lacing. Slight aroma is balanced with muted hops and malt. Flavor consists of bittering hops and some malt as well. Nice dry finish. Carbonation give it a good mouthfeel and adds some body. Overall, this is a nice lager with some hops flavor. I recommend this beer.

ehhdayton (1188) - USA - JUL 22, 2005
A golden color and light aroma. Nicely bittered with a sweet/dry finish. A nice clean crisp taste to the beer.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 19, 2005
Light, shiny gold/amber color, thin creamy/soapy white head. Aroma has a wet, day old cut grass thing, along with a dry white-wine malt sense to it. Nice and pleasant sweet taste, with a papery note to it. Nice and crisp and very enjoyable overall, but maybe the sweetness will get annoying.

This is a great beer with a fantastic finish. Works well with lots of different food, or by itself.
