Draught sample at the Portsmouth restaurant. This was a great lager, definitely near the top of my nice. Very lively and spicey in the aroma and flavour. Very easy drinking. cwalsh156 (6) - Exeter, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 26, 2008 does not count
A good beer, Im drinking it as I type, 1st time trying it.....was expecting Boston lager more or less a little let down. gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2008
This was a enjoyable lager. Not too thick or heavy bodies but just enough to stick to your palate on the finish. Color was amazing, deep gold and looked alot sweeter than it tasted. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2008
Golden yellow with no head. Aroma of mild sweet malt and grassy hops. Taste of sweet malt with mild hops and a semi-dry finish. Eh, premium lagers aren’t my thing. DewBrewer (295) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 3, 2008
12 oz bottle. Nice clean lager. Nice aroma hops. Medium amount of bittering hops. No off flavors. Just a solid lager. Good beer. As a homebrewer, I can appreciate the difficulty of brewing a good, clean lager.

On tap at Portsmouth Brewery. Served in pint glass golden yellow in color with a white head. Aroma was malty with grassy hops. Flavor was surprisingly fresh a slight malt in hte front followed by a spicy hoppiness. rcweir (139) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 27, 2008
Dull gold color, with large white head. Medium body and carbonation. Malty and clean with a dry, spicy finish. beerbill (3618) - Laurel, New York, USA - AUG 17, 2008
12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a moderate white head that disappears after the first two sips and left no lace. Mild aroma of malt along with some grassy hops. The flavor is again mild malt up front with some hops bitterness at the finish. Hoppier than the typical lager, which is a plus, but not as smooth as some of the better lagers. An ok beer, but probably not something I’d come back to. phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 28, 2008
Pours a clear amber colour with a tint of orange. Thin white head, that is only temporarily visible. It quickly leaves behind a small creamy top. Aroma is malty, slight pear and a bit nutty. Mouthfeel is very full, flavors are semi sweet and nutty as well. Finishes very smooth, but light and refreshing. Very clear in taste. 3fourths (9345) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 27, 2008
12oz bottle. Nose is semi-sweet honey malts and semi-sharp wheat. A full bodied palate and a medium sweet flavor of pure cracked barley and clean wheat bread is refreshing, vibrant and pure in flavor. A light note of resinous corn hints at marzen, while the lighter wheat germ and saltine cracker notes signal pils. All in all it’s actually really tasty.
