musinj6 (506) - Dedham, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy golden with white head and moderate to heavy lacing. Bready, yeasty and toasted malt flavors on the nose with maybe a slight hint of caramel on the back. Mildly sweet, hint of bitterness. Slight herbal hop, but this is very much a malt driven beer. Medium bodied palate with moderate carbonation. Long malty finish that is very smooth. Very drinkable.

ccex (1251) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 18, 2017
Pours a clear golden color with small white head and very little lacing. Aroma has bready malts, grass, and slight hops. Taste is slightly sweet with a dry finish. Body is light to medium with a crisp mouthfeel and slight carbonation. Very refreshing and well crafted. If I had blind taste-tested this, I would have insisted that it was German.

My 2nd ucbc brew, and wow. Golden color pour with a thin head. Havent seen any comments about the sediment but it is def unfiltered with lots of lil floaties. Very pulpy but the taste is so good. Its clean with a mild spice. Maybe a touch grassy. No strong aftertaste leaves me thirsting for more. Pleasing and not overpowering this one is refreshing for any occasion.

kramer (6531) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2017
Draft, Granite City Brewing Downtown Indy. Pours a clear gold body with a wispy white head. The nose is clean pale malt with a touch of hops. The flavor is ok, slightly fruity with pale doughy malt, minimal hops. Light bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. A little grainy on the finish. Meh, not the best exams of the style, but drinkable.

OzarkElmo (319) - Poplar Bluff, Missouri, USA - DEC 26, 2016
Simply one of my "Go To" beers. Excellence of this style. Pours a deep gold and cloudy with moderate white head, dissipating. Good lacing remains throughout. Well-balanced. A great beer any time of year, especially summer - Prost to Florian!

Drake (13259) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 24, 2016
Keg at the Midtown location, 12/17/16. Slightly hazy gold, large creamy white head, good retention. Aroma of doughy malt and mild grassy hops. The taste matches. Medium bodied, crisp, well balanced.

tfontana (892) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 29, 2016
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass. Appearance is clear yellow/light brown, nice sparkle, finger-width white foamy head with fair retention and fair lacing. Aroma is cracker pilsner malt. Taste is rich, almost fatty, cracker/biscuit--like a wheat thin--with mild tart. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with airy, frothy texture, soft-to-average carbonation and finish as taste. Overall, certainly European-inspired and good for the style.

Very well made lager here. Traditional, to style with a good hop bite and some mineral and bread notes in the body.

Can from Milk and Hops, Chelsea, 11/10/16. Pours a mostly clear golden color with a small, fizzy head. Nice malty aroma, lemons, grains, and earth. Bit of grass. Moderately sweet, clean, easy drinking. Lightly dry close.

zenkis (819) - Ogre, LATVIA - NOV 19, 2016
Pours yellowish-greenish with white off top, medium lasing. Aroma of sweet malt-hop mash, very ale alike thou, not like lager. Taste is light to medium sweet, light to medium hoppyness but not much bitterness, just light one. Medium+ body, but it didnt mess with drinkability. Kinda liked it. Easy going beer. I would say good balance slightly towards hoppyness makes it cool.

TimE (5535) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 18, 2016
Golden color. Very pleasant slightly sweet nose with honey, cereal and slightly grassiness. Very clean nose. Malty forward lots of cereal notes, but good grassy hops backing things up. Feels pretty authentic, like right from Germany. Good example
