Light gold with a little haze, this brew had a foamy white head. The aroma has a fresh, bread, sweet, malt, flowery scent. The taste is hop forward, with sweetness. The body is full and satisfying. Nice, engaging, and better than expected.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours cloudy orange yellow with a large white head. Smells of sweet grain, not much else. Tastes of sweet grain with some earthiness and grass. Beer is light bodied and very easy drinking, good carbonation. Overall, an above average beer.

My second offering from this brewer I simply happened upon, and I am quite happy so far with the results...

What continues to impress me about these Shmaltz offerings is the unique look one gets when pouring these brews out of the bottle and into the glass. I'm not quite sure how to explain it, but the beer looks 'different' when compared to the many, many others I have poured through the years. For a lager, it reminds me of the bold, dark look of a Boston Lager, but a bit hazier. The head is a bright white with decent staying power and the lacing is impressive, indeed. The smell is a wheaty, yeasty blend that was missing something. That something I could tell when I tasted it. I also noted the wheaty and yeasty flavor, the hoppy character, but if it had be a tad sweeter I think it would have made a huge difference. The mouthfeel was lightly carbonated but did have a watery sense that I noted right from the beginning. Overall, it was a very decent beer and probably one of the better lagers I've had in quite some time.

Clear golden yellow with creamy white head.Aromas of tropical fruit, some banana and malt sweetness. Some fruits and faint hops in the background come out on the tongue. Light body. Crisp, refreshing and drinkable lager.

Nice head, really great retention - but carbonation level looks off, opaque and incredibly "orange" hue.

Nose is light, almost nothing there - some hints at malt, bit of bittering hops but that's it.

Flavor is okay but not "good". Malt character is more pronounced in it's sweet but that's about it. No real depth of any flavor here. It's a light flavored lager, with a decent body. But no hop profile, no real malt characteristics. It just doesn't taste like much of anything.

Feel is on the watery side, carbonation is okay but something just seems off. I'm not impressed here.
