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.
