The only reason that this beer is rated so poorly is probably becqause it was at winter solstice and there are a bunch of idiots with no palates that attend. A very ncie lager adn a suprisingly nice one. Light but alcoholic but not boozy. BigBeer45 (1523) - Michigan, USA - JAN 26, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2007 Draft at pub (listed 7.2% alcohol), pours medium to dark gold with a full hat of white foam that stayed for a visit, whiffs of bread, pilsner malt, hops,
taste that reminded me of a pilsner with lots of malty flavor, some pepper on the palate, has a full mouth feel, hop bite bitterness with malty sweetness, if you like the taste of a lager you will love this, this came off as a heavy duty pilsner with hops, dry in the finish, great brew, I will get this again.

Pours a deep yellow-golden color with a good amount of white head. Very lagery aroma of sour hops, slightly metallic aroma as well, but not in a bad way. Starts out quite reserved and picks up in strength as it warms. Good clean lagered flavor of barley, some corn, lighlty sour, lightly bitter, medium body. Alcohol is not perceptible, has an almost syrupy feel to it. Something like lemon in the flavor as well. I will have to try more, quite good though. jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - FEB 13, 2005
Golden clear body topped by a white head. Grainy toasted white bread aroma. Minimal sweetness. Lightly dough medium sweet and lightly bitter. Dry medium body. Alcohol is totally hidden. Intersting stuff. Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 27, 2010
Tap at Spuyten Duyvil. Pours a very clear medium golden with a nice fluffy white head some lace. Aroma is nice malty bready pils, toast, deep dark toasted crackers and french bread, good German flowery hops as well - seems mostly clean. Flavor is clean as well- toast, biscuit, doughy pils malt, light carapils sweetness, herbal and grassy with some flowery hops- finish is fairly clean and crisp. Pretty nice overall. (went back to see the description- Beet Sugar? Damn never would have guessed).

On-tap at the pub, poured into a 6oz tasting glass...A dark but clear gold, good coloring. The head is bright white and keeps about a half finger cap for several minutes. At first the lacing is very full, but falls too quickly. Good start...The aroma is totally dead, very disappointing, only a slight hint of hops...The taste is exceedingly sweet, corn, floral bitter hops help to break the sweetness. Reminds me more of a pilsner with a little black pepper finish. A touch to sweet but this makes this totally crushable at a shocking 7%.
If I had to drink a lager I’d probably go for this, but at Kuhnhenn tough to keep going back to this with so many other options. jredmond (8206) - New York, New York, USA - APR 27, 2011
Draft at RnH with Streets, Andrew, and Brendan during the Kuhnhenn Total Tap Takeover Event. Pours a deep brown body with slight lacing. Aroma is light smoky roast. Mouthfeel is smooth notes of sweet roast, chocolate candy and earth. walleye (1099) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - DEC 26, 2004
from the tap at my favorite brewery. poured a cloudy golden with a nice white head that hung around for a while. aroma, hops, corn, as it warmed the aroma got a litlle more pronounced. flavor corn, hints of lemon, hops. this is one of those beers that should be sold in the summer apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 4, 2007
At Spuyten Duyvil, Brooklyn...a slightly cloudy, wheaty looking lager - pale, murky yellow without much of a head. Strong wheat aroma, but it is clear that it is a mild lager. Dry malts abound in the flavor, yet some slight honey-sweetness. Not bad at all, really. Ibrew2or3 (8607) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 11, 2011
Poured up on tap at the Kuhnhenn brewpub with clear light copper body and white head. The aroma puts out floral hop like cotton candy sweetness, mild spiciness and some lager-y yeast. The taste is sweet and gets caramel-y before lager yeast and thick sugary maltiness take over. I’m not picking up much in the way of hoppiness which seems a bit odd since floral hops were noted in the nose. Nice brew nonetheless.
