A: A clear, medium gold, effervescent, with little to no head. An example of the style.

S: Cereal malts, grains, a bit of lemongrass maybe.

T: A malty, full bodied lager. Slight hops on the back end, but very moderated. Bready.

M: Full bodied for a lager, fresh, clean, crisp.

Nothing too adventurous, but a very dialed-in lager.

Pours a mostly clear straw yellow, soapy white head, settles to a thin layer, rings halfway down the glass. Smell: bready, grape, floral and lightly spicy. Taste: mildly grassy and spicy, lightly bready, white grape, nectarine note. Very nice.

A pretty average lager, better than adjuncts, but not as good as most other craft/imported German offerings. A little watery almost flat, with some lemon/bready flavors, but overall an uninspired brew. Maybe the 6 I bought was past expiration as I couldn't make out the date on the bottom of the can.

Pours an effervescent straw color with a finger of ivory colored head. Good lacing& head retention

S: Grassyness, a little wet cereal, some lemongrass & perfumy hops

T: Breadyness, grassiness & pears up front. Some astringency & cereal sweetness as this warms, pears as well, a little lemongrass too. Finishes fruity, grassy, a little dry with some honey crisp apple

MF: Medium body, firm carbonation, nice balance

Drinks super easy, very true to the style. I will buy it again. This a great beer to have year round, but, really goes down well in the heat/humidity

Great summery lawnmower brew, drank cold with a pale straw yellow color, faint grassy and earthly smells. Taste just like Germany! A nice play off the German dortmunders I like it!
