Had this Moerlein offering at the Wilder, KY Mellow Mushroom for a Bengals game day lunch. Wanted something local to Cincinnati and glad i chose this. Came in a chilled pint glass. Reminded me alot of Stella Artois but with a smoother finish. Very tasty. Not bitter. Went very well with an all meat pizza. Was so impressed that i went out and purchased a six pack from Party Town in Erlanger KY.

fresh 12 oz bottle.
Pours clear, golden with a moderate size head that has weak retention,
Fairly nice aroma of sweet and light roasted malts. Flavor is true to German style heles with no noteworthy faults or strengths.
Medium-light body; lightly crisp carbonation; slightly dry finish.

This being an Ohio beer, and me living in Ohio, I admit that I wanted to like it. But it really doesn't have much to like--or dislike for that matter. The nose and taste are dominated by sweet malt, but there's a considerable dryness to the finish. Flavors are muted here, but you'll smell and taste bread and caramel. The mouthfeel is thin and carbonation is relatively low. Overall, this is a step up from the macro lagers, but at $8.49-$8.99 for a six pack, it just doesn't have much to make it stand out from the others beers in that price range. While I didn't dislike this, I won't be buying this one again. Next time I'm looking for an Ohio beer I'll be sure to stick to Great Lakes, Thirsty Dog, or Columbus Brewing Company.

a. Nice golden color, pored into a pint glass. Nice head.
s. something about the smell seems off. I can't really pin it.
t. Not very good, honestly tastes sorta corny-y, almost like a euro lager. After taste is not good, and as it warms it gets even funkier.
m.not bad not great.
o. Okay not great, they are easy to drink, Doubt I would buy again.

I got this out of a variety pack.
