COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In The beginning, there were ales. As far as anyone knows, the first beers made were ’top-fermented’, which is longhand for ’Ale’. Sometime long before the 1860’s, beers became popular that were made in Northern Europe with a bottom fermenting yeast strain that liked the colder temperatures. Because they had to spend weeks aging before they tasted their best, they were known as ’Lager’ beer. Lager is the German word for ’storage’. Since they had to sit a while, they took up more time and space and as such were harder and more expensive to make. Where ales are meaty, lagers are sinewy. Where ales are street, lagers are ’haute couture’. Where an ale might hit you over the head and take your wallet, lagers donate to charity and adopt stray cats. While an ale might steal your car or try to date your daughter and keep her out all night for who-knows-what purpose, a well bred lager would offer to clean your house while you’re on vacation and leave fresh scones and coffee for you when you return. Now, don’t get us wrong, ales can be a lot of fun to hang out with when you’re in the right mood, and if you have bail money on you. But what’s wrong with livin’ uptown from time to time, on a nice street, where the doormen all wear those little uniforms, the air smells of flowers, and lagers rule the Earth. Cheers!

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2007
Rated 8/3/07. Bottle at Redlight Redlight. Courtesy boboski. Pure golden body with virtually no head or lacing. Aroma was primarily a grainy background with faint hops and very mild spices. Perhaps a tiny bit of sweet citrus fruitiness in there too. Flavor was on the mild side, but interesting nonetheless. There is no dominant element here, but everything just seems to meld together incredibly well. The fresh grains flow right into the mild hops and the pale malts, and vice versa. Body is a little watery, but there is a bit of creaminess on the palate that makes for a very nice finish. Just a very well rounded beer that is incredibly easy to drink.

Pours a clear as day, straw gold with a small white head. A little bit of grain, really mild hops, and sweet cinnamon are detected in the aroma. The taste is mildly bitter, a little sweet, hoppy, with some malts in there too. Really easy drinking beer, and very flavorful for a style I’m usually not big on. Just mildly bitter in the finish, but left a sweet cinnamon flavor on the palate. This is well done for this style.

Original 3.2 Atlanta, Ga. - Briarcliff Whole Foods - 12 oz bottle. Overall a solid Pils. Nice orangish appearance, frothy white head. Some buttery notes and citrus tanginess in both the aroma and flavor. Tangy finish.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clear orange-tinted body with a large frothy white head. Pleasant grainy aroma, soapy grass, and cookie dough sweetness. Not overly bitter but more malt oriented. Plenty of biscuit sweetness with just a small level of bitter twang at times. I could see this fitting nicely into a session.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUL 29, 2007

3.4
redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 28, 2007
Strong aroma for a pils, honey, spicy and floral hops with some trace amounts of citrus. Pours very light blonde. Definitely a hoppy pils, which i tend to like! Spicy hops upfront, with some citrus hop notes, with some grainy cereal. Pretty good pils!

Bottle. Very good pilsner... nice golden color with a very pleasurable taste. Citrusy aroma. A very refreashing beer with body.
