This is a well crafted beer. Well balanced, flavorful yet not overpowering. Mild wheat flavor, malt and bitterness, yet nice lingering aftertaste.

Pours a bright golden color with a big, stable white head.

Smells of coppery, dried garden herbs with a note of dough, toffee and fresh hay.

Has a surprisingly full and well balanced, smooth mouthfeel with a nice, sparkly finish. A light, crisp and refreshing beer.

Tastes of grain bread dough, caramel with a light mineralic note, grassy hops and a whiff of wheat. Turns a little sweeter then, with the hops developing a soothing blueberry quality among their herbal foundation. Finishes light and clean with prevailing herbal hops and lighter turning bread dough.

Another winner from this brewery. Traditional hop profile meets rustic, mellow malts and bread dough, blending together to a very refreshing, tasty flavor profile.

330 ml bottle into lager glass; no bottle dating, but was just released locally this week. Pours crystal clear medium golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense and rocky white head with awesome retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, pepper, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance of bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of Aromas of cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, pepper, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate herbal, floral, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, pepper, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great robustness and balance of bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness balance, and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately bready/grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.2%. Overall this is an excellent Dortmunder lager style. All around great robustness and balance of bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink with the modestly bitter/drying finish. Clean pils malts and perfectly balanced noble hops. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example. No complaints.

Pours a sprightly, beautiful pale straw. Not much in the form aroma. May be a little bit of bohemian yeast on the nose? It's super light, clean, crispy. I prefer a bit more body on my pilsners, but this is one that I don't see very often and would be great on a sunny day, which it is definitely not today.

Poured from the bottle into a Libbey style pilsner glass.

Foamy capped, and pretty tall at three solid fingers and off white topped head. Body color is a good pale brass brown, touches with chestnut and dirty brass with little streams of nice linear carbonation. Neat looking beer.

Refreshing clean aroma, hints a little fruity, but gives excellent doughy mix and even a touch of toast. Chewy white bread with a nice piece of crust on the nose. Flirts with lemon and hints at a thick malt body than usual, very nice.

Clean palate and a simple flavor makes the mark. Chewy with a nice simple malt forward and flirts with caramel by a hair. Not as crisp quality, but with a good rich malt and just the nicest amount of sweetness mixing in the mid palate. Hints a little thicker than average, giving a bigger body push on the flavors which is a real nice feeling.

A very neat take on a lager, lighter marzen bock? Dortmunder? Hard to say, kind of in it's own realm. Very nice and simple brew.

Pours clear, gold in color with 3/4 inch head. Taste is graham crackers, honey, and straw. Light bodied, high carbonation, clean and sweet. Makes for a good and sweet sessionable lager. Would get a six of this again.

Golden in color. Clear in appearance. Lightly toasted grain, hay, grass and earthy noble hops. Light bodied, highly carbed. Nice lingering bitterness. Super refreshing. Solid beer.

Light gold, yellow in color. Higher clarity. Straw, harvest grains. More mid-bodied, yet still refreshing. Perfect beer for a warm autumn afternoon.

Delicious. Gold in color, little bread and crackers on the nose, maybe a touch of sweetness. Really nice. I brought this into my bar for a few regulars to try and they loved it. Highly recommend this beer!
