2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From draught sample at brewpub. Mild pilsner aroma with bit of herbal hops to it. Pale yellow clear with thin white lacing head. Light body with light-medium carbonation. Starts with a bit of pilsner malt sweetness and light acidity. Mellow with mild bitter hops finish. Would appeal to light/pale lager drinkers as a crossover. Clean finish; a bit soft.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had this beer for the first time on draft at Frederick’s Oktoberfest. The aroma is soft but nice, with some citrus, grainy, and fruit hop scents, and a bit of malt. It has a pretty clear, light gold color with a small to average foamy white head. A nice flavor, mostly sweet with some fruity tones, but also a bit sour/bitter for contrast. It is on the lower side of the carbonation spectrum; not dry, some wetness. Overall a good light beer option that has pretty good flavor.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2009 On tap at the MBF. Poured a darker golden color than I wasn’t expecting. I expected this to be a light golden/blonde ale. The taste was more in line with what I was expecting -- it was somewhat light and smooth with a crisp finish free of any offensive hoppy aftertastes. I enjoyed it. The last time I went to B&H Restaurant I didn’t like any of their beers. I will know what to get when I got back. If only they would lower their prices...

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a very, very nice lager. Very light straw in color, with a white head. Cold and crips like a lager should be, but not so light as to be ineffectual. Simply a nice, clean, tasty lager. Good beer!

Near clear, just a hint of straw -- lighter than any body I’ve ever seen, including low carb macros. Aroma is mild sweet, light grassy/spicy. Taste is medium sweet, some cereal, faint grassy/spicy. Very light body.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 29, 2007 Draft... Crystal clear, light yellow lager. Creamy, white head with no lacing. Doesn’t matter; the head lasts forever.
The aroma is very subtle. Toffee and straw in the nose with notes of white pepper and a hint of pear.
Malty with plenty of malty caramel flavor and hopped just enough for balance.
Light-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Short, bitter, clean finish.
