Got this in a mix-a-six at Giant Beer Garden & Eatery enjoyed from a pub glass chilled from the bottle.

The color is a medium amber with light cream of beige with small bead and spots of lace collect. The smell is malty with a mild sweet aroma and light yeasty breadiness. The feel is good -a mix of malt and mild bitterness with a slight creamy and carbonated feel but the finish is mostly dry and alcohol is subdued.

The flavor has some nutty malt with toasty flavor combined with the yeast which adds a slight bready quality to the brew with slight spice and and mild hop flavor which seems to balance the sweetness of the mild caramel accent. Overall I enjoyed this but feel it would be better classified as a vienna or amber lager perhaps. I think it is a drinkable lager with a nice malt body.

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.

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 ...

Thanks to BA Smoked for sharing this growler with me. Poured into a couple of standard pint glasses, the brew appears a clear straw yellow with a frothy white head. The cap maintains as expected for the style with a spotty lace pattern across the top and on the glass.

The smell is buttery with herbal hops contrasting a bit of cereal-like sweetness. The nose is pretty average as expected for the style with the only highlight being a noble hop presence is noted.

The taste is as buttery as the nose leads on with a touch of fruity alcohol ester and faint herbal hops. The hops provide a mild herbal flavor and not much bitterness. I guess I am super sensative to diactyl because the buttery character of this brew ruins it for me. Underneath is a mild grain sweetness that lasts into the aftertaste.

This is medium bodied with a modest level of carbonation. Sonewhat crisp but not as much as you would expect for the style since the buttery notes linger and ruin the crispness. I wanted to like this beer, I really did. I always look forward to new local brews but this one is nothing more or less than a fair bmc substitute.

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.
