This one was something I wanted to try for a while, but I never seem to float to the lager section of the liquor store, though I do enjoy a nice pilsner or black lager. It is stated as being a pre-prohibition lager and I understand exactly what they mean as the hops and malt are omnipresent during the entire experience. Poured into a pint glass and the colour was a light ruby red, nice head retention and lacing throughout. It smelled of light caramel malt with some pleasant, aromatic hops on the nose. I drank a couple of them and they flowed nicely. It's really a shame that Americans did the whole Prohibition thing, and I wish they would have bootlegged beer like this throughout as it could destroy any macro side-by-side. Hell, it could snipe down a crap Miller Light from miles away! Enjoy it in the sunshine with a burger or a brat and a side of slaw.
