Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine April 2007.
Cheers to Bruce Scott for the win with his Lager. It's great to see a Lager win in any competition because the style seldom gets the respect it deserves (unless you attend our Night of the Lagers @ American Beer Fest on June 15).
A quick-to-drop white head leaves a bubbly lace in its wake, which, surprisingly, puts a few rings on the glass, showing that it actually does have good head retention. Slight haze with a pale golden color. Hoppy aroma of fresh-cut grass, white tea and lemon essence. Some pale maltiness in the nose as well. Refreshingly smooth crispness off of a moderate body. Clean, malty palate; grainy up front with a mild, doughy biscuit flavor middle to end. Hops come in with a sharp bitterness to set things straight, and slowly leave with a light tea and spicy herbal flavor. Clean for the most part, with a touch of nutty yeast in the middle. Finishes a bit grainy and semi-dry.
Other than the clarity, this beer ended up being quite the stellar Lager. Crisp, clean, and refreshing--what else is there to ask for? Oh yeah, and it's flavorful. Pair this one with a pot of Edam and Swiss cheese fondue and an array of sausages.

bread like smells, which completely dominated the entire profile from the first moment you took a whiff of it. This was not a bad thing in fact it was kinda what I would be looking for in the style and it really came off with the aroma of a classic German lager. big-time bready and malt heavy lager this just did not mess around and came right at you. Nice light profile that was just full of bready grains and a bit of an earthy sort of twang
