The beer pours a pale golden color with a thick frothy white head that fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a crisp, pilsner malt scent along with a touch of hops and dry lager yeast aroma. The taste is good as well. Again, it's crisp with a dry lager yeast finish. The malt character maintains a smooth, well rounded flavor. It contains a much broader taste than a macro, adjunct lager. The mouthfeel is fine. It a low bodied beer with adequate/good carbonation. This is an every day beer that's easy drinking and flavorful, yet doesn't hurt the wallet too bad.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a rich golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, some grains. Taste is crisp, clean, malts, some hops at the finish, refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall this is a fine session beer.

A - Nice deep amber color with a thick and foamy white head. Ample carbonation, but nothing too obnoxious.

S - Can definitely pick up on the German hops just by smelling it, and maybe a little bit of cornbread and sweet dinner roll. Very pleasant smelling.

T - Great. Wonderful smooth full-bodied lager taste, with just enough hops to give it a punch. Has a sweet buttery tone to it, like a sweet dinner roll, very tasty.

M - Thick for a lager, but very full. Not greasy or watery, but almost a perfect viscosity for a beer.

O - Very good beer. Great first impression by the Susquehanna Brewing Company, a very good lager and a very good beer all around.

I know that I usually eschew bottled beers, but given that Guy Hagner is part of the brewing crew behind this beer, I could not resist.

From the bottle: "People Beer by Beer People"; "The address says Northeastern Pennsylvania, but make no mistake. This beer is pure Deutchland. The use of classic pilsner malt ans Sauermalz recalls beers from centuries ago, bringing to life a traditional, rounded note. And the Bavarian and Czech hops deliver a crisp, classic and nuanced bitterness. Which can only mean one thing. It's time to don your favorite pair of lederhosen and enjoy an incredibly drinkable German-style beer, from right here in NEPA."

My musical accompaniment for this one is Adam and the Ants doing "Ant Music" since it was "ant music for ant people". My pour created just better than a finger of fizzing, tawny head that lasted longer than I expected. Color was a brilliant gold (SRM = > 5, < 7) with NE-quality clarity and now the three stooges, Croesus, Mammon and King Midas were REALLY fighting for a sip. Nose was had a grassy tang along with a cereal-like sweetness. I would have guessed GER Pils, but APL also fits. Mouthfeel was medium and the wash of grassy hops reminded me of why I have fallen in love with adjunct-free lagers. I have CANsumed far too many AALs on The CANQuest (TM) to be enamored of such things. The finish had a slight twang to go with the grassiness, perhaps from the Sauermalz, giving it a unique taste. Man, if only they would begin CANning, I'd be all set ...
