fata2683 (2175) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 13, 2008
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.

cheap (4886) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2008
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.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2008
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.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2009 Tasting at Three Cellars Milwaukee. Dry and grainy. Not very Memorable seems very basic. skunky

Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2008
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.

jcwattsrugger (11752) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - SEP 27, 2008
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.

PorterPounder (6713) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2008
Tallahassee, Fl. - Liquor Loft - 12 oz bottle. Light to medium gold pour with a thin, soft white head and nice bubble action. Grainy aroma some hard water accents. Biscuity, malt-accented flavor with some yeasty notes. Some salt and mineral water in the finish. Crisp, dry mouthfeel. Good basic Dortmunder.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1121) - FINLAND - SEP 1, 2008
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.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 30, 2008
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.
