I have to admit that I have been spending more and more time at the Huether house Lion brewery the last year...and this lager is a good part of the reason...there have been major changes in this brew pub with the addition of 2 new brewers ( One a certified brewer from Germany)...and the entire line of beers have taken on a new fresh malty chracter they never had before.
I was made aware that the most of the recepes were tweeked and the process changed to a longer cold lagering cycle.
This beer seems to be all the better for the changes.
Aroma is now much like a rich Dortmunder golden lager...malty, toasty, light wet hay and citrus tones.
Flavor profile is big malts up front with a light herbal bittering and a nice biscuit malt drying finish with a lemony snap at the end...a very decent all malt crafted German session lager
An I have "sessioned" with it extensively the last year. ;-)

At the brewpub. A Munich style? Smelt like sweaty gym clothes, not mine. Light yellow, with a bit of head and lace. SOurish, I think from some wheat and yeast implosion. This led to one European at my table to actually like it. Light body.Unknown style.

A new offering from Marrika's Bierstube. Goes to show that not all German beers are that good. This one falls short of average. Looks straw with nice retention and high carbonation. Aromas are typical of 'green bottled' beer and noble hops--Earthy, yeasty, and close to skunked. Flavors are bready and moderately malty. Sweetness gives way to bavarian hops and a mild grainy bite in the finish. Also finishes a bit watery and fleeting. Still, worthy of chasing down a bratwurst and saurkraut.
