4.38/5  rDev +21%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

16.9 oz brown flip-top bottle with no freshness date from HDT Importers Inc.

Appearance: Very bright golden hue, nice clarity. Thick two fingers of froth form and leave a semi-sticky white lace.

Smell: Sweet bready malt, hints of honey and noble hops.

Taste & Mouth Feel: Incredibly smooth with a creamy moderate body, ample crispness from the carbonation. Fresh malt flavors, with an underlying hoppiness that comes though to balance. Sweet malt becomes juicy in the middle with more hop flavor. Ends semi-dry with a long malt-hop finish.

Drinkability & Notes: Wow, quite impressive. You really don’t come by lagers like this too often. Paired well with some mild Munster cheese and country ham.

3.88/5  rDev +7.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 500 ml swing top bottle into a pint glass.

Slightly turbid, pale golden with a roughly half-inch loosely foaming head that quickly disappeared. Sparse, tiny bubbles reflect the mild carbonation.

The aroma is light and fresh, with a little sweet, dried summer grass.

The taste is what I would expect from a German lager. Very drinkable and refreshing, just enough hops, balanced with bread-y sweetness, with a hint of whiskey. The only minor complaint I have is the alcohol taste seems to elbow its way to the front a little, but not enough to interfere with the overall experience.

On the palate this lager is light, but not too watery, mild carbonation.

I'm a little biased because this is one of my favorite beer styles. But I really like this beer. I will have this one again for sure. Beware... It's so drinkable, the alcohol sneaks up!

3.75/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

clean golden yellow pour with a half inch of head which quickly dissipated.
smells citrusy sweet.. like a lemon orange zest. mainly sweet malts and bready yeast.
slight grassy bitterness up front, a skunky bready yeast flavor follows, then a burnt-like bitterness makes way for the final flavor offering of sweet bready malts. kind of all over the place with great flavors.
light-medium body, mild carbonation.

i feel like this could be better with a little more carbonation. a sweet lager, almost pils like, with a dry finish. very crisp, flavorful, and refreshing.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a 1/2 liter stein a honey tinged light golden color with a fluffy one finger white head atop.Grainy withiron notes in the nose,light toast a faint sweetness as well.Quite dry on the palate with that toasted grain element coming thru,faint vanilla tinged sweetness with slightly detected sour bite in the finish.Not bad,not very complex but it's great while outside grilling on a kick ass autumn like today gearing up for uopefully another Tiger beat down of the Yankees tonight.

3.8/5  rDev +5%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - Pours a pale straw colour, finger of head with solid retention and no real lacing.

S - Grassy hops and bready malts, musty and a hint of wheat.

T - Much like the nose with heavy grassy notes, loads of pilsener style hops that linger with bready flavors and wheat.

M - Medium bodied, smooth and dry on the finish.

O - A tasty ale with loads of pilsener style hop notes. Definitely flavorful a suitable for the style. Well worth the 4 pack that it came in.
