I love this beer and glad it is readily available in the Cleveland area. I have a good friend who was skeptical, but is now a believer as well. As member Ohiolager said - "move over Hofbrau". Hofbraus is good too, but this beer is my pick at the moment.

Smell: Light crisp bread like malts

Appearance: Golden and clear.

Taste: Much like the smell. Light and crisp with delicious bread like malts. Just the lightest kiss of hops. Extremely drinkable.

Mouth feel: Very nice. Prickly carbonation.

Overall: Just an outstanding lager. Extremely thirst quenching and a perfect example of style. No wonder this beer has been pleasing drinkers since 1040.
