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 ...

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.
