A bit darker than most Germanic lagers, good thick head on it. Well hopped and tasty but not as crisp and clean as the good German lagers (from Europe).

From old tasting notes. Brassy orange amber color. Thick creamy white head. Nice floral hop aroma. Tangy citrusy malt flavor. Complex malty midtaste. Tasty bitter hop finish.

Old undated notes: Nice golden color. Tastes fruity and rich with a nice herbal quality and a dry finish.

2.4
ROGUE (2216) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - FEB 5, 2009
12oz bottle. Poured a golden color with a slightly frothy white head that faded quickly. The smell was grainy with a little bit of hoppiness in there. The flavor was quite weak with a little bit of spicy hops but not much else. A very weak Petes.

nearbeer (5636) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 15, 2007
This was a good, highly available beer. Didn’t realize it wasn’t available anymore. Smooth and balanced with a clear golden appearance. Slightly hoppier than most Helles, but that is probably what made it good.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 18, 2006
Bottle on sale. Lager glass. Light malts, and very light hops. Smells like a light Helles. Sweet taste, a little sweeter than I expected. What is up with this brewery is every beer supposed to be a little sweet. Like someone poured a sugar packet in each beer. Lite hoppy notes and those are very light. Lots of carbonation. Once again Petes wicked releases a boring and overly sweet beer.

3.2
JoeMcPhee (9586) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2006
12 oz bottle. Slightly hazy golden colour, thin white head. Sweet, fresh grainy aroma, pale malt, slightly worty with touches of honey sweetness. A bit too sweet actually, but otherwise quite good. Toasty finish with a kiss of noble hop flavour.

2.8
oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2005
Pours a clear golden yellow color. Aromas of grass, cheerios, and a touch of flowers. Flavor is kinda sweet to start, citrusy finish with some hop notes.

2.6
KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAR 4, 2005
Pours decent enough-- cloudy, golden yellow, nice head. Taste initially is of the more malty slant, then the beer transistions rather abrubtly to a more hop-tinged taste. I’d like to try this on tap. A little flat, but not bad.
