COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Previously known as All Malt Lager (Helles) & V Lager

There was a time when all beer tasted this good. Back when immigrant Brewmasters turned fresh malts and hops into liquid gold. Before big business lessened our precious beer with corn and rice. Having trained in Germany, we thirst for better beer. So, we brew better beer like this crisp, golden, helles-style lager. Brewed with patience from quality German malts and hops, it is a Victory for Your Taste!

Malt: Imported 2 row German malts

Hops: Whole flower German hops

Jsawyer (297) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2009
Bottled, pours thick white head atop a pale yellow body. Aroma was of apples, eggs, flowery nectar and soft malt sweetness. Flavor was cereal, nectar, slightly fruity and starchy sweet. Palate was light and gave a lasting bite on top of the tongue as well as being sweetly oily. The only really good thing I can say about this beer is that it was hoppier than a yuengling, it did not however match up in any other way. An oddly unfortunate beer from an otherwise great brewery.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - FEB 26, 2009
330 mL. Pours piss yellow with not even a one-finger head that dwindles to nothing. No lacing. Aromas of grass, corn, orange blossom honey. Taste is bubbly upfront with some light honey and cereal grain with a powerful blast of white sugar and then turns slightly acidic and astringent with some barely noticeable balancing dry hops more reminiscent of freshly cut grass. Overall lackluster, bland, nothing to rave about.

Really really pale colored, fizzy with no head and lots of bubbles inhabiting the sides of the glass. Aroma is grassy, wheaty, corny. Pretty ordinary.

LinusStick (3399) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2009
A typical helles. Aroma was so so. LIght sweet malt with a hint of graininess. Pour was a light gold with nice small rising bubbles and a 2 finger white head. Taste was weak and watery. The only real flavor present is the light malt and a slight vegetal aftertaste. Very average.

Grassy floral nose, also citrus, very pale appearance, not much of a head. There is some body to the palate, some minerals, german hops, a bit of malt. Not bad.

12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours very light golden with a thin white head. Aroma of tin and light malts. Flavor pretty standard for this style. Not for me.

Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours light gold with a creamy white head. Bready aroma. Not a lot of hop. Med minus body. Flavor is lightly sweet and bready with only a hint of nobility. One can only wonder.

Nothing special. A typical lager beer. Goes good with pizza. Refreshing on a hot day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2004
Not my idea of a lager at all...pale yellow color with white head, aroma of hops and some sweetness, possibly lemon. Very crisp body, but much more bitter than any other lager I have ever had. Goes down easy, bud not what I was looking for from this particular beer, from this particular brewer.

Pailhead (6539) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - AUG 26, 2005
Bottle: Courtesy of Styles. Aroma is slight Euro-lager sweetness with some grassiness and a touch of hops. Pours a pale straw yellow with a small white head that fades to a ring in no time. Sweet Euro-lager flavor from start to finish. A hint of some apple and only the slightest hing of hops in the finish. I really dont understand how this gets a score above a 3. Very little difference from a mediocre European sweet pale lager.
