Before Prohibition, thirst quenching lagers were firm and substantial, and enjoyed in huge volumes. This recipe incorporates yeast from the C. Schmidt Brewery of Philadelphia and a small portion of brewer's corn to recreate an 'industrial' lager of the turn of the century.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Big fluffy head atop a mid gold body on a sweating glass. Cereal grains aroma, clean, adjuncty, but well made flavor. Rice and grain. Easy drinking.

On tap at Blind Tiger. Pours golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is light and crisp with some light fruits. Flavor of corn sweetness. Light, crisp, refreshing. There’s not much going on here, but this is a decent pale lager and quite drinkable and refreshing.

This is an awesome beer, I would drink it all summer if it were avaliable. aroma is nicely balanced with some hops poking out, and some bready malt. flavor is dry, slightly hoppy, and very crisp and refreshing. if only all pale lagers were like this! reminicent of stegmaier gold medal accept with more hops. lean mouthfeel, easy drinking, tasty and refreshing. just a little less bitter than a bitburger. Vastly underated.

Tap....you must be kidding me. Pours a pale golden color with decent carbonation. Smell is Saaz hops as if this were a pilsner...Taste is grainy with a slight hint of corn and absolutely nothing behind it. It seems like they were deliberately trying to make something that would evoke the crappy macrobrewed pale lagers, and they succeeded.

Tap @ Victory. The beer was a clear light yellow color with a white head. The aroma was lightly sweet and malty. Malty and lightly flavored with a grainy finish. Light body with a dry and mildly bitter finish.

I had this on tap at Isacc Newtowns in Newtown Pa. It’s a good lager. I’d pick this over Yuengling anyday, for a lager, it’s got a good flavor, nice color and good smell.

pretty decent lager, cool concept to have a recipe based on an old school lager, but i didn’t exactly dig the sweet grassy/corn taste that come with it, but it was very smooth and crisp with a bit of a sweet aftertaste.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2010 Draft at PJ Whelihan’s. This is one of the best pale lagers that I have had. Great taste - poured a bod somewhere between michelobe ultra and yuengling....so yellow. Nice sweet aroma, would def try this brew again. solid alc % as well

Tap at Capone’s. Clear yellow color with spare lace. Aroma was sweet, sweet malt. Taste was pretty much the same, Almost honey-like, with just a hint of hops. Light body.
