This beer is just classic in all the sense of the word. Brilliant deep golden yellow color with a solid head that lingers. excellent aromatics push sweet crisp malt forward. Full nectar with brilliant effers creating a soft and luscious mouthfeel. A dense malt backbone with a defined sweetness factor is instantly balanced by a crisp hop component. The sweetness is overcome effortlessly reminding the user to take the next sip. Despite it’s density it is unbelievably drinkable. This specimen is by far more refined than other of this pedigree. Excellent! Trump! jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 7, 2009
Hazy gold with big, foamy white head / Nose of yeasty bread, lemon, and violets / Medium body, somewhat sweet, creamy with good malts balancing potent hops, and with smooth, slightly hot, finish / Flavors of orange, lemon, apple, bubblegum, violets, chrysanthemum, honey, and hops / Pilsner character dwarfed by the big, hoppy, ale-like character of this stunner. philbertk (1873) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 30, 2010

1st off.............man i love american version of euro strong lagers!!!! Great hazy orange pour with a wicked nose of hops, sweet caramel, caramelized apples, and sweet malt. Flavour is very sweet, but super satisfying. Lots of nice hops, and more of the wicked caramel apples, and malt. Such a chewy tasty beer. I love it!

Enjoyed on 3/17/11 in a Pilsen glass. Egg yellow color. Foggy almost opaque body. Headed with a very dense, close & lasting foam. Thick layer, yellowish center & lemon yellow circle. Subtle malty but intense hoppy aroma, kind perfumed. Heavy & dry bitterness all over - feel the chains of a Panzer tank rolling on your tongue. The aftertaste keeps the dry bitterness but refreshing flavor. Excellent drinkability no matter alcohol level.

Sampled from the tap at Port Brewing on Friday night . The perfect way to celebrate the end of the week and start the weekend. The boyz were busy bottling and holding down the fort while the rest were at GABF,so we had the hard task of sampling this brew. Golden in color with a thin white head. Subtle citrus aroma. Medium resin like body with some enticing carbonation. Great flavor of bitter hops and balanced complex maltiness. Very long finish with lasting flavor in your mouth. Excellent beer no doubt!!! paytoplay (146) - , California, USA - OCT 12, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2009 Really solid brew. Strong lager is noted? Seemed more like an Ale. Great aroma, strong pils flavor and German’esk. Lots of minerals and a strong rustic and bitter finish. After this opened up it was more intense. These would benefit from 6-12 months of bottle age. Tried from Bomber.
Update, enjoyed bottle 2 with 4 moths of age, drinking at it’s peak, the little bit of bottle age helped this really come around. Score improves and this felt like a german beer brewed in germany. outstanding! doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 18, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2008 22oz bottle. This beer rules! Pours brilliant, clearish amber with a medium sized white head, some lace. Smells mellow, light and sweet malty... unassuming. Tastes unbelievably citrusy with just enough aggressive malt sweetness to call it a pilsner. Think bright and sweet hoppy triple ipa only bottom fermented. Bright resiny, orange and lemon with a little bit of melon. FUll body, dry and bitter astringent, good carbonation.
