My first round with this Lager was mediocre. However, after a great night at a German hall with great imported German Helles style lager, I came home a tried it again. I tasted the same great Helles style lager. I realized great care and attention went into making this Lager. Must have on hand. Always.

Pours a straw color with decent head. Grain like aroma and a bit of hay. Toasted malt taste, fruity like green apples, moderate hops. apple. Very clean finish. Smooth and light. This was an excellent lager.

look - Golden color with a good head and lacing. Typical for a good lager.
smell - normal lager smell with good hop malt balance
taste - very tasty with a great balance
feel - crisp medium body
overall - for not being a lager fan because I think they are kind of boring, this is a pretty good lager!

Watered down Miller lite? I can't believe this was on the craft beer shelf.

Got this at the beach last year at a local craft beer seller. Took a six pack on the beach. Good drinking beer. Had a light crisp hop flavor at first. The malt smell and taste is a little low for me. Light wheat color to it. Had a thin head to it. Alot better than my go to beer miller lite. So it a keeper.

This is a darned fine beer, nice color and aroma and very drinkable. I found it had a nice hoppy aftertaste which I enjoyed. I thought it was slightly flat which detracted from the "Feel" score. I'm not a huge fan of German style beers but this is one nicest I've tasted.
