purchased on the heels of the bourbon-barrel-aged imperial stout... just to see what these guys are about...
pours a light colored, low-head, pils-type-of-looking brew into a bruery-type tulip glass.... mostly clear, but hazy gold...
smells like fruity lager. like a regular adjuct type of commercial beer....
tastes like a fruity lager, but with some extra SOMETHING... not sure what-maybe it's the alcohol?
overall, it's okay. nothing special. but if you're using this 7%er as a session beer, you're doing very well.... it's easy to drink, although a bit 'twang-y', and not bad I imagine if you've purchased a 6'er and heading home... just don't get too buzzed and beat the girlfriend.... but it is a very decent brew. not my favorite style, but still a very decent brew... aside from the stout, I think I need to see what else this brewery has to offer...

Picked up a case from bell beverage on discount.

Poured into a tall pilsner glass, color is gold, head is bright white, very thick and pretty dense. Very enticing and delicious looking.

Smell is nice pilsen malt, maybe some biscuit or bread type scents, some nice hops, grassy/earthy scents.

Taste is nicely malty, pilsen mostly, some biscuit or bread flavors, somewhat lingering flavors; hops are similar to the scent, pleasant bitterness, not fruity, more earthy/grass.

Mouthfeel is tilted towards strong flavors on the tongue, pretty crisp carbonation popping the flavors out; some nice pilsen lingering flavors, maybe some vienna type flavors lingering in the mouthfeel on the tongue as well.

Overall, a very good, tasty brew, taste is a little sweet, but some clean hops to balance, moutfeel is also a bit crisp; still a very tasty brew and solid helles/mai-bock. Quick edit - noted the pale malt used instead of pilsnen, could be why the sweeter flavors.

3.78/5  rDev +4.7%

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy goldenrod with a wispy head that leaves a lot of dots behind

Smell: Bread and butterscotch; a hint of grassy hops

Taste: Bready, up front, with the butterscotch building in the middle; the grassy hops make an appearance after the swallow and while they linger into the aftertaste, this is one malty brew''

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Although there is some diacetyl and a sweetness that may indicate some corn in the grist, this is a readily drinkable brew

Poured into a pils glass.

4.0 A: Clear golden yellow color. Three fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is pretty good and a great deal of lacing is left.

3.5 S: Grassiness through and through. Hay, floral and earthy hops, moderate neutral malt sweetness, and that lager yeast smell.

3.5 T: Taste is like the nose. Grass, hay, floral and earthy hops, sticky neutral maltiness. Moderate doughiness and could be a bit cleaner, but good enough.

4.5 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Velvety viscousness with plenty of creaminess. Very nice here.

3.75 D: Good beer with no real flaws. The mouthfeel is awesome.
