Really disappointing. I was in the mood for a lager, and I was prepared to compare it to your typical macro lagers (and expected to find it a bit better, given the pricetag) This beer is local, and I wanted to like it, but it's too thin, lacks taste or pleasant aromas (there's just mainly grain), and there's just nothing special here. It's no better, and is actually probably worse than Corona, and it costs more (over $5 a pint where I bought it compared to $2.29 for a Bud). Couldn't finish it.

Decent lager, smooth and balanced. If you're a lager fan this is worth a try. Nice flavor, easy to drink, good year round beer.

On tap at Alter Fest in Kettering, OH. Served in a clear plastic cup.

Appearance: Mostly clear pale gold. Thin white ring of foam. Some lacing.

Smell: Clean lager aroma. Just a hint of noble hops.

Taste: Simple lager flavor. A bit of grain, mildly bitter, with some weak noble hops.

Mouthfeel: Nice thickness, good carbonation.

Overall / Drinkability: Full bodied and flavored for a light lager. A no frills beer, great for drinking with food, which in this case was sweet and spicy chicken and rice. Easily drinkable, and a 16oz can of this would be fine. Normally I would want something with a lot more flavor and aroma, but this worked well. Again, for a light lager it is full bodied and flavored as compared to other light lagers I've had over the years.

16 ounce can, canned on date of 06/08/16. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a slightly hazy straw gold color with maybe a quarter inch white head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. Aroma is subtle, the brew smells like bready malt, along with some grassy hops. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also a bit of apple noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is light, it's smooth and goes down pretty easy. For the style of beer it is, it's not bad at all. But for the price I probably wouldn't buy it very often. With that being said, it's worth trying at least once and I wouldn't turn one down. $2.49 for a single can.

Can dated 6-8-16. DFH Tulip.

A: pours an almost clear dark straw with 1/2 finger white head that fades to nothing. No retention, no lacing. A few bubbles stream up, and a few initially cling to the sides of the glass.

S: slightly sweet graininess with a slight twinge of something vegetal. Creamed corn, maybe. Not super, but typical of the style.

T: not as sweet as the nose, but pretty similar; white bread, slightly sweet, slightly grainy.

M: lighter side of midweight, slightly carbonated; wish it had more carb. Not as clean as I'd like, but cleaner than an ale for sure.

O: it's an okay lager. If I lived in Dayton, you would always find this in my fridge because I like lagers and I like local beers, and this is a decent American lager. But for me, Budweiser's brewery is actually closer and employs more people, and the beer is just cleaner and cheaper. The bigger breweries tend to do lagers best (Great Lakes, Sierra Nevada, anything German). Not likely a repeat buy for me, but worth trying if you like lagers.

Look - Light and pale. looks like something you would go to in a movie for a prop beer.

Smell -it really doesn't have any distinctive smell. No flowery hops smell, just a malt small.

Taste - Tastes like something you would pay $10 for a 30 pack of.

Feel - feel exactly like a light beer, nothing special.

Overall this beer is not very good, and there is no way it demands the price that is being asked for a 4 pack of 16 oz cans. They have great marketing for a beer that is nothing special.
