Leighton (11612) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2013
Can on the Metro North train into NYC. Pours lightly hazy gold with a big, white froth head. Nose of cheap cereal grains. Light sweet flavor with modest cardboard, cereal and hay. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with vaguely tangy citrus. Not very good, really.

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 28, 2004
Taken as a Lager this beer is pretty good. As a Helles it is just average. Pours a clear golden color with lots of small bubbles. Thin white head with minimal lacing. The aroma is fruity with some malt. Light-bodied with a clean palate. Flavors of fruit, malt and a touch of hops and yeast. The finish is kind of thin and lightly bitter. Overall this beer is blown away by the likes of GLBC but it’s ok.

DocLock (8001) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Can. Gold pour with hopcitrus and pale malt in the nose. Tastes like a helles, nothing intense, but something I’d drink a few of with a Connecticut wrapper cigar on a 95 degree summer day like today in Philly.

shrubber85 (7862) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Can. Lightly lactic barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Slight sweet barley malt and lightly bitter hay flavor. Okay - nothing special.

BVery (6826) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2013
Can. Mostly clear yellow-orange pour with a large white head. Grain and bread, slightly sweet, not too bad for the style.

BBB63 (6122) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 28, 2003
At MBG summer fest: It's deja-vu all over again, the only thing that would have been weirder would have been if this brew was made by Arcadia... see I lived in Atwater on Arcadia Street and it was hell! Really though, this beer isn't really hell, it's a nice summer quaffer with clean and crisp taste. Hoppy nose and slight metallic finish. All in all, it's okay.

12oz Bottle @ Coles Buffalo NY. Yellow golden color. Didn’t like at all. Buttery & horrible. Couldn’t even finish
