Straw yellow with small head. Lightly hoppy nose with sweet malts. Medium bodied with a pretty decent bready malt...some honey and corn flavors. Better than I expected, but not my style.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 22, 2007
Clear yellow coloured beer with some light carbonation and a small white head. Sweet hoppy aroma. Medium palate. Finish is sweet, light grainy with a more shorter bitter touch near the end. OK

pilsnerrogge (2677) - Finspång, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2007
Clear golden with a big, frothy head. Sour adjunct aroma with notes of cooked vegetables, glue and vomit. Flavour is sweet but turns dry and sour in the finish. Awful stuff.

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 8, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow with little head and no lace, ends up a flat looking clear liquid. Aroma is sryrupy sweet, lightly malty, lightly of cooked vegetable (why does that keep coming up?) with a body that is flat and watery and overly thick both. blech. Flavor is much of the same sweetish malt, light bread. Finish is lame, with flat dough taste and little bitterness. Overall, this is the suck but not as bad as that last one.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Bottle: Gold, thin head, no lacing. Nose of toast, sweet nice biscuit, thin malt. Flavor is crisp, balanced, a bit strong in the tail. Decent.

Drake (11116) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 5, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2009 Bottle. Pours a beautiful golden with a short-lasting head. Kind of a skunky aroma and taste with a faint hint of hops in the taste. Sweet finish. Forgettable.

BuckeyeBoy (4057) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 3, 2007
Bottle pours out a clear gold topped with a white head. Light sweet grain and a little very little hops. Not bad but still not that good. Thanks BückDich

500 ml bottle. Slightly hazy, pale golden with a thin white head. Fairly clean pale malt aroma with a touch of honey. It’s pretty tough to tell the difference between the 2, 3, 4, 5, and 7... but when they’re in good condition they aren’t bad. A bit of bready sweetness and light citrus. Might be a bit underattenuated.

I usually don’t care for pale lagers much, but this is probably the best one I’ve had so far. It had more flavor and aroma then I would have expected. Very malty, and very pleasing.
