COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Draught: Smelled malty as well as of corn and some sweet fruit (like apple). Also smelled of a bit of grassy hops and yeast. Poured golden color with large, dense white head. Very nice lacing. Clear. Slightly sweet and bitter corn flavor. Malty, with a small hop presence mainly in the finish. Light to medium body. Kind of thin and watery. Average carbonation. Short finish. Overall, it’s a classy beer for your average light beer drinker. Not something I would usually drink, but good for a game of quarters.

Draught pint at Eulogy in Philadelphia. Pours pale and light golden in the darkness of the bar, with a smallish creamy white head, quick-diminishing....corn, faint grassy hops, a touch of dried lemon and herbs in the simple but tolerably pleasant nose....sweetish and to my taste closer to a Euro-style lager character, fairly light and refreshing while cold though with too little pale malt evident and virtually no hops....sticky and way too sweet when warmed a bit, reminiscent at that point of an above-average malt liquor. I don’t much appreciate even "good" malt liquors, so while I can accept Victory’s intentions in this "recreation", it’s still pretty lousy by their, or any good brewer’s, standards.

Pours a clear light yellow with an average white foamy head. Aroma of sweet malts, corn and I thought I was even picking up some honey. Flavor of cereal and grains. Overall an easy drinking lager with a light hop presence.

On tap at BitterCreek Alehouse clear pale light golden thin wispy brief white head classic light pale lager flavors, some nice body and a smooth finish. The low carbonation actually helps this to go over well. Quite nice actually

Clear pale golden body, thin white head, sparse lacing. Light grainy cereals, gentle floral and grassy hop notes, a touch of cracker. Relatively simple, but clean, medium to light bodied, and decently refreshing.

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.

MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 18, 2013
plenty of small bubbles rise through the transparent gold to a thin white small bubbled head laces well. Tea and grain nose, very plain with light lemon, fresh cut grass with warmth. Well-attenuated flavor, soft doughy grain with husk hints, more grass, all of it very light, even muted by the effervescent body. Lightly sweet by victory standards, and though "plain", still well crafted.

Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Draught sample at Victory. Pours a medium gold clear with thin off-white head that dissipated quickly. Medium bodied with medium-high carbonation. Had a mild hop note and bland sweetish malt to start. Bittering became stronger toward the finish and had a somewhat clean after. Overall, I thought it was a bit watery compared to their other lagers. Mild tang for the finish, as well.

LilBeerDoctor (3930) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2008
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.

Pale yellow color with a white head. Aroma of grain and citrus. Cereal grain flavor with lemon, and some hops. Very nice lager.
