32oz brewery filled growler. Pours a clear paler gold color, topped with a frothy covering of bright-white head. This maintains a moderate richness, leaving back a smattering of rich lacing down the sides of the glass. The nose is fresh with a combo of floral, grassy, and spicy notes. A tangy mix of green citrus and sweet bready character sits along the back. The taste has a crisp and zesty bitter bite to it that finishes dry and spicy. The hops are barely holding that bready sweetness back (made even stronger by the alcohol) but manages to just keep the overall flavor profile balanced. The mouthfeel is fuller bodied with a crisp feel on the tongue and then more of a firm creaminess along the back. Alcohol does add some thickness to the body and ends things a bit too much on the warm side. This was interesting. I liked the crisp and spicy mix of German and Czech hops here but the high alcohol cut back on the overall smoothness and drinkability of this. It’s definitely still worth a look though, plus it’s a cool bit of history as well.

Pours a straw golden yellow, really airy and foamy head sits on the beer for a while.

Smell is earthy, straw, grains, piney hops.

The flavor is a little sweet and spicy at the same time. pepper, straw, grassy. Some bitterness from the hop content.

The mouthfeel was thicker than I expected upon looking at it, but it still finishes crisp. Very refreshing.

Honestly, a very cool idea to work with the family to brew this classic recipe again.

Nice historic research and reinterpretation of a local lager. Tasty and stimulating.

Presentation: Growler from DC Brau's NE headquarters. Small dry board with general growler offering notes. Served in a tall pilsner glass.

A - Straw to pale gold pour, assertive frothy head, moderate to small retention with a nice memory ring, and attractive lacing.

S - Soft nose, bready touch with a pleasant hint of lemon and grain on the nose…

T - Sweet initiation, bready notes, sweet lemon with a soft lingering bitter nose over the lager sense with a somewhat grassy touch..

M - Medium body and carbonation, nice lingering texture, with a pretty solid feel.

O - Rather stimulating, this flows very nicely...

Notes: …while nothing that would drive me crazy by style this is surprisingly tasty. Very likable, and something worth celebrating. Nice research and collab story with a rather tasty brew to back it up.
