Trade with Aurelius - thanks!- new state - Nebraska! Bright sparkling medium dark golden pour with a thin white head. Pretty much of a neutral aroma, hints of spent grain and fresh lake water. Solid, crisp lager flavor with some nuttiness, a bit of honey sweetness, some graininess. Crisp and refreshing mouthfeel. Not bad at all.
Got in a trade with The-Adjunct-Hippie. 12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy medium orange/amber/light copper color with a small dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of cracker, toasted biscuit, brown bread, light nuttiness, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of bready malt and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. A bit fruity/yeasty, but not overwhelming. Flavors of cracker, toasted biscuit, brown bread, light nuttiness, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light herbal/grassy/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, toasted biscuit, brown bread, light nuttiness, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Minimal dryness. Fairly clean on lager flavors, with minimal yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth and moderately bready/grainy mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4%. Overall this is a nice lager. All around nice robustness and balance of bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth, clean, and refreshing to drink. Feels a bit more like a Vienna lager. Nice clean malty flavor, with just enough hops to balanced the sweetness. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Draft at Local Kitchen, Omaha, NE.
Copper in color that is see through. Aroma is corn and sweet malts. Taste is sweet malt, corn, and yeast. Where are the hops?? I can not get them in the aroma or flavor.thepatrickman (1307) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 22, 2016
Medium bodied with soft carbonation and sryupy texture. Easy enough to drink but I was hoping for a little bit of hops.
Thanks Greg (gregwilson) for sending this my way and getting me a NE tick! Wonderfully bland -- there’s a vague, light sweet butter flavor and that’s about it. It’s a craft lager (it even has a badge on the label that just says "American Craft Brewery") just a really dull one. With that said, though, I split it with my wife and she loved it... gregwilsonstl (2466) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 13, 2016
Dark amber. Effervescent. Poured in a Sam Adams glass, it looks like Sam Adams lager. Thx Arp for leaving this with me. Nothing great, nothing bad....nice safe lager. Some maltiness. rdixon77 (2763) - Georgia, USA - JUN 29, 2016
Down the middle. Grainy, slightly sweet, mild
Hop flavors. Pretty easy drinker.

Poured amber, no carbonation and no foam. Not really usual golden as other premium lagers have, but well, I guess lagers are still different. Aroma had some caramel and brisk malty grain character. Quite subtle. Taste caramelly, sort of what I could already understand from the colour. Otherwise quite watery body, simple and highly drinkable - word I am using not to say characterless. Volume beer, not bad but well, just not that interesting, had much better stuff from this brewery before. ozzy70 (1132) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 1, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Pours copper with white head. Aroma was grains and wheat. Taste was sweeter than expected. MNAle (179) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 18, 2015
This one had an odd metallic aftertaste. Maybe I had a bad batch or something. DBob5150 (235) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Found this at an Omaha HyVee. Definitely on the marzen side of lagers. Amber body with hardly any head. Faint aroma. Taste is sweet, slight hops with a little after taste.

Not a bad beer with a lot of qualities, but none that seem hoppy per se. Appearance, body, & aroma are all ok, but nothing to write home about.
