A super smooth, crisp, refreshing lager. It may not punch you in the mouth with flavor, but there is something to be said about it's excellent execution of subtle flavors and smooth taste.

Phenomenal beer. Lager may not be in style these days but a really good one is still my favorite beer.

Wow! I have never had a better unfiltered Lager in my life!! This has absolutely everything a beer geek would ask for! I am sad to hear that this is only around for a limited time...

On tap at Capone's.

A: Slightly hazy, unfiltered, straw color...excellent head! Lacing sticks all over the glass.

S: Perfect aroma of German hops and robust bread-like malts. Hops are a bit spicy in the nose, kind of floral if you ask me.

T: Perfect again! Immensely impressed with this brewery. Light hops bitterness up front that is met with soft doughy malt flavor. Thought this was going to be whatever...boring...but I drank this beer all night. So many delicious beers on tap but I didn't even want to switch over! That takes a lot. The aftertaste is slightly bitter and begs for another sip.

M: Lively carbonation and overall roundness. Perfect body for the style.

D: I love this beer! My new favorite...too bad it is not going to be around long. Might have to move to St. Louis...

16oz bottle poured into willybecher glass bottled on 6/7

A: nice inch or so soapy white head. Body is a light gold straw color pale with great clarity

S: Smells like a pilsner with that little bit of peppery hop bitterness and a huge dose of sourdough bready quality with hints of sweetness. Has a little corn smell as well.

T: Very nice smooth bready, doughy, sweet, corn, grain taste. The aftertaste has bits of the floral and bittering hops to it.

M: Full feel yet very smooth nice on the tongue almost a little rich. The beer feels creamy yet crisp quite wonderful.

O: This is an amazing lager, its smooth, creamy, beautiful nuanced doughy a lightly bittering hops it is very balanced. Reminds me of a little of Miller's High Fortune ehich was pretty damn good.
