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.

Not a lager dude but I had to give it a shot. Pours a clear, medium gold body with a small, and I do mean small, white head. All malt aroma. Flavor is that of a cheap macro lager. Not my thang.

On tap at brewpub. Pours bubbly pale gold with white head. Nice lacing. Caramel, fruity, musty basement, floral, light citrus. Medium sweetness and lightly bitter. Medium bodied, light carbonation. Much better than I expected it to be.

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.

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- ppured golden copper with a lot of carbonation. Nice citrus and maltiness in the aroma. Taste was very pleasant. If I were to be by a pool in the summer I would be very pleased with this beer. For the category it is very good.

Pours a pale yellowish color with a thin head. The smell is very bland nothing too intense to pick up. The flavor is maltyand has some bitterness. Overall carbonation is ok and is refreshing out of a keg.

Not much aroma at all and it looks like a bud light in the glass. I notice a bit of lemon in the flavor, but this beer overall is very light with not much body.

Looks almost like a BMC product in the glass with a clear gold color with little to no head. Tasted malty more than anything else. I liked it for a lager and found it to be extremely easy drinking. Perfect lawnmower.

Pours a nice slightly cloudy gold with a decent bubbly white head. Very clean, crisp, corny/cereal aroma. Clean taste with no flaws. Crisp, dry finish. Easy drinking - a fantastic conversion brew.
