2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle poured into pint glass. Pours light gold with almost no head. Smells sour and lightly hoppy. Taste is crisp and clean. Heavy carbonation ends dry with a light bitterness. This is very light and easy to drink. Not a whole lot going on though.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2008 Polite bottle with a foil covered cap. Label seems to be quite a bit different than I see here. Pop the lid for a minor veggie olfactory. Looks like pale ubiquitous lager. Sparkling carbonation visible within. On the taste buds it’s a good easygoing initial zest that builds to a slender bitter bite. Carbonation is waning and just enough to keep the brew fascinating on the palate. Fizz weakens rapidly. Some hints of wet pasture perhaps, but just barely. Finish is gentle lager but does ever so subtly gnaw with pilsner spiky bitterness which hangs around for a while. An overall suitable knock back, with a rather amusing personality. Lager enthusiasts will be fond of it. No appallingly bitter hops. Nothing more here than a good american lager. Way too expensive, $4 for a 12 oz bottle.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not flawed but not exciting. Great clear light gold with a good white head; as I would expect from a lager, to thin to leave any lacing. Flavor of sweet malts, classic floral hops, even a refreshing surprise ... some bitterness in the finish. Hard to complain, since it is, after all, what it is supposed to be ... a pale lager.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It’s golden with a huge, white head. The aroma has notes of hops, malt and fresh grain. The flavour has a fine, slightly dry bitterness, notes of straw, grain and light caramel. It’s pleasantly smooth and yet refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle-pours a decent foamy white head and yellow color. Aroma is grass/grain, lime/lemon-citrus and spice hops. Taste is grass/grain, then over taken by the floral/spice/earthy hops (hallertau, Tettnang). Dry finish. Good carbonation. Thanks to jwc215 for picking this out.

Bottle. Golden colour with a small white head that disappers quickly. Hoppy and malty aroma. Citrus, hops, malt and a bit bitter. Slightly dry aftertaste. Nothing special but drinkable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Pours crystal clear pale yellow color. Very pale, very light. Coors light territory here. Small white head. Aroma is pilsner malt, clean malt and yeast character. No hops. Smells like a run of the mill Pilsner, though I’m not complaining, really. Taste is pretty much the same thing. Very, very drinkable, like water. I wish this had a bit more flavor though it is really easy quaffing. Decent.
