12oz bottle purchased at a Pick n’ Save outside of Milwaukee. It wasn’t as cold as I would have liked for the style, but it was definitely in the drinkable temperature range. The pour was more red than I would have expected from a beer labeled as a pilsener. The aroma is also sweeter than I would have expected. The flavors are sticky sweet and a bit soapy. I was expecting a crisp dry beer. This is disappointing for a brewery that I have come to respect - I’ll have to give it another try the next time I’m in Milwaukee. musinj6 (506) - Dedham, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 8, 2012
Pours a medium copper color with small head that quickly dissipates, leaving small lacing. Subtle sweet toasted and cereal malt with a little hint of caramel. Mild/moderate hop flavor that is grass and floral. Hint of leather. Thin body, but not overly so, moderate carbonation. Crisp clean finish. This a very respectable lager.

Thanks to Rogueone for sharing a bottle. The beer is a clear amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes slowly. Partial rings of lacing. The aroma is fruity and hoppy. Light-bodied with flavors of grassy, herbal hops, fruit and sweet malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall. AWISLguy (3109) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Bottle from Woodman’s in the Falls. Pours a clear copper-brown with a small white head. Some fine bubbles below the surface. Wedding dress lacing. Aroma has earthy malts and some bread. A bit of metal detected as well. Taste is of sweetish malt without much distiction. Finishes dry and fairly quickly. As a lager, ok. As a brew to have more than once, there are many better choices.

Average head, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, clear light brown.
Malt aroma, not amazing
Sweet start acidic finish
Light watery soft carbonation

Bottle. Grainy malt aroma. Clear copper with a moderate beige head. Sweet barley malt and light grassy flavor. Light carbonated body. valpoaj (744) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Bottle pour - amber in color with thin head which leaves my presence quickly. Aroma is moderate in strength...slightly hoppy with a solid malt presence. Flavor is very clean and not particularly aggressive. Light hops and bready malts are evident. Palate is clean and this is an easy drinker...expected given the style. Good, solid beer, while far from one of my NG favorites... drewaha (129) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 20, 2012
I am not huge lager fan but this one is really nice and refreshing. Slight malt flavor and light hops. Simple and nice Doghair (312) - Illinois, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Poured clear dark amber into a pint glass. Nice white head that dissipates to a film with a thick ring. I get no smell worth commenting. There’s something there but it’s faint. Taste is malt, a little bitterness with a little honey at the finish. Clean crisp and easy to drink. o_Merlin_o (225) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Pours a beautiful caramel color with a yellowish head. Hints of toasted hazelnuts fade rapidly to a pleasant but slightly watered down aftertaste. Not a very complex beer, but thirst quenching and pleasant none the less.
