What the brewers say

There was a time when all beer tasted this good. Before big business lessened our precious beer with corn and rice. Having trained in Germany, we thirst for better beer. So, we brew better beer like this crisp, golden, Helles-style lager. Brewed with patience from quality German malts and hops, it is a Victory for Your Taste!

What our panel thought

Aroma: Great balance between light, spicy noble hop aroma, clean pils malt, and sulfur lager character. Malt is light, bready, and toasty. Very clean.

Flavor: Bright pils malt sparkles, a little perfumy. Hop flavor dominates the light, bready malt. Bitterness is clean and some spicy, peppery notes add interest. Medium carbonation but little head.

Overall: Strong mid-palate hops dominate the light-bodied malt. The final result is enjoyable—a light, malty breeze. Refreshing without being cloying or sticky. A great example of the style. Where’s my pretzel?
