Most of you will find some similarities to the larger German imports, like Becks, which is good because this is in the same style. This is a pale lager with a dry, malty taste and a hint of a hoppy finish (at the risk of sounding like my gay beer calendar, more like a "whisper") that fades quickly with little aftertaste. This style doesn't jump out and grab you like some, but you will appreciate this in the warmer months. This comes in a neat Bugelflaschen (flip-top bottle, like Grolsch). Currently available in the metro-Philly area, soon to be available in NJ, DE and MD. Thanks to our new friends at Reinheit Importers LLC for the sample.
