Looks like beer(ok look). Scent is malty with some grassy elements on the edge. Flavor is more pronounced than a macro but I don't like it. Kinda malty and bready but not in a good way. Sort of astringent. Watery feel. Ok I guess.

New to me brew from dberger624... Thanks Dan! Pours clear golden with a sudsy white head.. pils malt with some earthy/grassy hoppiness... could use a bit more bitter bite to balance, Okay... but not my favorite example for a German Pils.

Poured a darker yellow with no head and a tiny lace with minor carbonation to speak about. Smell was an odd fruity smell, like cooked Rhubarb and maybe a bit of cooked egg? Felt like a weak syrup with a grapefruit bitter at the back. Stale was the impression.

From the bottle this didn't taste too bad but when opened up to smell and taste... The fruit of the hops with grapefruit and orange. Nicely bitter finish. Dry not sweet.

Okay. So this is a lager. It's not anything to write home about, but this is a good refresher for the drinker who wants a bit more flavor that foamy pale BMCs. But, I don't know as this misses the mark for me.

Really watery with an unpleasant bitterness. Lacks any kind of complexity.

Kenzinger, a nice beer when your having more than 10. Phila. Brewing Co. has a wide variety of beer. And if you stop in make your own case for only 27$$. From unfiltered Walt Wit to Newbold IPA to Kenzinger lager, something for all.

Pours a finger and half of head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is dry grain and mild lemon.
The taste has a moderate lemon bitter, mild malt body with a clean finish.
The texture is crisp.
An enjoyable beer.
