07/17/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Not your grandfather's lager, unless he's from South of the Border. This is a lager more in the style of a Dos Equis or Modelo. IMO most US lagers lean to the pilsner side, not in this case. Thicker in body & more substantial in flavor this is a great beer. Even though the ABV says 4.5% it taste like a bigger brew. Give it whirl.
