An easy drinking brew, I could put these away all night. Pours a cloudy yellow with a small fizzy head. Aroma was quite good, floral, and almost berry like. Taste is fairly approachable without being too watery. Malt is present, as well as hops, but neither is very assertive. Geat choice to keep on hand. Anyone from the consummate swill drinker to the experienced BA can enjoy it.

Pours a light golden color with not much head to speak of,aroma is faint a little biscuity and grainy.Nice flavors in this lager a firm malt base with some fruity notes even a little iron notes,the hops are more prevelant in the finish and aftertaste.a real nice lager beer complex but still refreshing and easy to drink,another nice one from Sprecher.

Pale yellow color, slightly chill-hazed in 10 seconds. White head that mostly turns to spidery tendrils at the top of the glass. Crisp hoppy aroma with some sense of candy sweetness. Likes the smell a lot. Decent maltiness -- very agreeable sweet flavor with a diminished hop for balance. Pleasant enough beer here, but I didn't detect much Pilsner Saaz character or adequate crispness. Quite drinkable, though...

I didn't care for this one. Pours out to a medium cloudy yellow color with a short lived head of foam. Medium low levels of carbonation. Aromas of raw light malts and cooked veggies were noted. Taste was bland and boring; raw maltiness and veggie like hops dominated, with a touch of a yeast bread-like background. Mouthfeel was slighlty carbonated but mostly boring. Drinkability is not up there with the other All-Malts I've had. I'm afraid this is a drain pour...

Poured dark golden in color with a slight chill haze. White head retreats to the side of the glass. Blast of Saaz and Mt Hood hops pops you on the nose. Aroma also has a sweet malt scent to it, along with a touch of saltiness. Mouthfeel is smooth, yet slightly crisp with a thin to medium body. Sweet malt middle gives way to the light bitter hoppy finish. A different take on the typical Pilsner. Less crisp and more creamy than I would have thought it to be. Still, it's a smooth pleasant brew with an interesting malt and hop balance to it.

The beer is a chill hazed straw color. The medium white head recedes to a rimming quickly. Lacing qualities are adequate. This baby's heavy on the malt aroma. It is very nice however. Like carmalized malt and sugar mixed together. There is also a bit of a floral hop nose. The taste also favors malt qualities. Sweet caramel malt. Smooth and easy. A small Saaz hop kick lets you know they didn't forget about the hops. A nice balance here and a very drinkable full bodied brew.

served in 16 ounce bottle

appearance: very pale, small white head that disappears quickly, some carbonation

smell: smells of maltiness, maybe some bread?

taste: very mild, but nonetheless present flavor of malts, very smoth and easy to drink. After a few more sips I noticed a slight cream soda after taste, different

Overall a good beer by sprecher, one I could drink my fair share of.

Yellow gold body, fluffy white head,which leaves too soon, settles into thin cover, with little lacing. Bubbles rising from bottom. Pale, yes, but not Bud pale.

Hay competes with hops in nose.

Hop tingle up front in the taste, but good balance with malt. Malt lingers more in aftertaste.

Full-bodied, this is not a training wheel beer, though some might think that from the name.

A good solid American micro lager.

Nice bottle, nice pour. Dark honey orange with a big white head into a nice big stein.

Very malty, very fruity. Plum and hey and lights hints of flowers like a European cough drop.

Tastes very much like it smells. A great flowery simple malt pilsner against a light, dry hop. Nothing too complex, but it's a hearty and rich taste and is very enjoyable for what it is.

Excellent session beer. One of the very most drinkable beers I've ever come across.
