It's a nice refreshing offering for summer months (it's 76 degrees in NC in December. That's summer weather for me). Bit more hop flavor than I expected. Not a bad thing though. I like it, but there are many others from Sprecher I like a lot better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear gold, frogs’ eggs bubbles in the thin white head. Great Sprecher potato masher pint bottle - too bad it’s a twistoff. OK label. Diacetyl Bohemian pils aroma. Buttery, nutty sweet, modestly bittered, mineral flavors - this is an OK-drinking beer, but it’s almost savory and would be a great base for a chicken dish - stew, pie, dumplings. Mouthy, with a bready finish and a little hop flourish at the very end. I always look forward to a new Sprecher.

PorterPounder (7894) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - pint bottle. Medium golden pour, slight cloudiness, nice bubble actions, snow white head. Aroma has some butterscotch accents, a touch of vanilla. Flavor has a buttery back end with some vanilla notes, some butterscotch, some honey sweetness. Mouthfeel has a decent spritz to it. Can’t tell if the butterscotch is from diacetyl or it is intended - pleasant at first - turns cloying after a while.

backdaft (286) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours a bright yellow/gold color with a nice finger of foam. Aroma is faintly sweet. Taste is sweet grains & grassy hops. Well carbonated, crisp, & slightly bitter. An easy drinkin’ summer beer.

16oz, Sprecher bottle, twist-off. Bright yellow, slightly hazy. Bright white head. Aroma of old dirty socks. Smells of wheat malt, grassy hops. Tastes of straw & grassy hops. Sharp bitter grass flavor finish. (3597)

jmohno (1612) - Iowa, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Poured a hazy golden yellow with a inch or less of head,nice frothy lacing into a SS pint lager glass. Aroma was strong grassy, citrus, skunk, spice. Taste has same nature but medium-fullish bodied, lots of noble hop,spice,grassy,some breadiness, grassy spicey finish.With tart grassy citusy type bittering. Strong nature for a 5%er.
