Sampler pour on tap at the brewpub (Michigan City, IN). Pours a well hazed yellow golden hue, frothy white head films well, laces ok. Some decent glow, golden orange hue. Aromas are gentle bread and cereal grains, touches of bread, grassn and straw. A mellow gentle hopping, kiss of dry toast. Simple, inviting. Initial is medium bodied, a bit lighter, touch of girth shows cereal grains, bread, and dough. Gentle cracker, grassy hops, some mellow florals. Some flour, florals, dough into the middle. Kiss of lemon rind, florals, and a bigger grassy component. Clean and generally more firm hopping, gentle and fairly clean, a growing dry hoppy quality. Backend and finish show bread, florals and earth, kiss of citrus. Firmly solid Lager, with a nice hop presence. Pretty nice.. Above many brewpub lagers and into the "I’d buy cans/bottles of this" realm.. valpoaj (755) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - JUL 22, 2012
On tap - have enjoyed this multiple times, both in its ’standard’ offering, as well as ’syrah barrel aged’ (which was quite intriguing actually). This review is for the standard offering - came to the table clear gold with a thin white head. Corn and grain in the nose with some lingering sweetness, and the flavor mimics the aroma well. Palate is not bad for the style, and this is actually a quite drinkable version. Easy drinking, and not offensive - far from the worst thing out there! esjaygee (3906) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 28, 2012
On tap at Shoreline Brewpub. Hazy amber with a lacy white head. Aroma of grains and sweet malt. Taste of sweet malt, a hint of honey, corn with a crisp finish. Just a click, on to the next brew. pittsburghkid (8) - VALPARAISO, Indiana, USA - JAN 15, 2010 does not count
on tap at the brewery. floral grass aroma. very pale with hazy appearance and very little head. Taste reminds me of miller lite. enough said. Light body with sticky texture and abrupt finish. patrick767 (4197) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 20, 2009
tap at the brewery (description said it was aged in a French Oak Syrah barrel) - The brew has a mild, pleasant aroma mostly of wine. It tastes of sweet, pale malt and grapes with a light body and no noticeable hop presence. Interesting brew. The wine barrel aging works well for it.

From the tap this pours a clear golden body with a small bubbly head that quickly fades away. The aroma has some sweet grainy malt and a touch of candy corn. A mild earthy bitterness is added to the flavor, balancing the drink out. Not sure if this should be styled as a Pale Lager since it’s adjunct free and has taste-able hops. No matter. I probably won’t be repeating it.jezmez68 (404) - Chesterton, Indiana, USA - NOV 10, 2007

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2009 Nice, straight-forward lager beer. Served cold in a mug. Smallish head with lots of bubbles that disappears. This is as good as the Helles OKtoberfest from Hofbrauhaus, only it’s fresher here at Shoreline. GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 17, 2006
Clear gold color with thin white head that laced the glass. Aroma and flavor were similar; light sprucy hops and fresh malty cereal grain. Slightly sweet with a crisp clean finish. thedm (6319) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 21, 2006
This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized bubbles that was mostly lasting and left behind a transparent uncarbonated orange colored body. The thin mild aroma was malty. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a lager hop malt aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of medium strength lagerish hop malt mix. An OK brew just nothing special. Tmoney99 (14982) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2006
Draft sample at brewpub. Clear pale color with a minimal frothy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Light sour citrus aroma. Light to medium body with a dry texture. Medium sweet flavor with a medium balanced finish of short duration.
