GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - DEC 24, 2010
355mL. Pours a clear orange with a healthy, off-white head with good retention and some miniscule lace. Aroma of orange candies, sickly sweet malt, candy corn, honey. Taste is relatively inoffensive, slight diacetyl coating the palate with butter, sweet rolls. Inoffensive, malty, sweet, not bad.

12oz bottle. Bought this in a Publix in Port St. John, FL. Yellow color. Smells like canned corn, vegetable sweetness, and grassy hops. Fizzy mouthfeel. Tastes like corn. All that is missing is the skunk. I feel sorry for these locals.

Six-pack from Publix in Bonita Springs, FL. Poured a small white head with short retention, transparent, visible carbonation, one ring of lacing, and a yellow hue. The aroma was corn, grassy and grainy. Ditto for the flavor with a bit of bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel and light-medium body. An easy to drink beer and pretty much right on for the style.

The aroma is malty in a macro lager way with an adjunct like quality that makes it a little corn like and a little acidic. There is a little bit of grassiness. The appearance is pale gold with a slight hazing and a small head. The flavor is not too bad it’s incredibly simple with just a corn malt taste and a touch of bitterness. The palate is right for the style. Pretty much a standard lager.

this is a quite simple yet very nice beer to drink over many rounds. the malts are medium flavor at best but still has a touch of caramel that is noticeable. hops are mild but slightly acidic.

The Lager is one of the beer styles I am most particular about because it is so hard to find a really good lager. Having been surprisingly impressed with their porter, I approach their American Lager with far more hope for a decent lager than I would have otherwise.
A golden orange with a small white head which fades quickly atop an incoming onslaught of bubbles is the vision which appears before me. Orange, honey, citric hops, and sweet grains greet my nose, and I am most pleased. Definitely a sweeter nose than some, fresh sweet grains of cereal and bran are the most prominent. My first quaff reveals a nice medium-bodied mouthfeel with notes of honey, fresh oranges, tangerines, and a chewy presence of wheat, sweet bread, and cereal grains. Maltier than some, she could use a bit of hops to add a snappy crispness to her profile. As I delve further into my Beachside American Lager, she retains her sweet grains and bready profile while honey and orange coat my mouth and tastebuds. Finishing pretty much the same way she started, I rather enjoyed the American Lager for what she was. While lacking a lot of the typical crisp hop and lager yeasts profile, she wasn’t bad.
Not as good as the porter, and yes, I realize they are two different beer styles. But remember, I am very picky when it comes to lagers. I’m not quite sure what makes this the American lager, but if offered another, I would accept. Should you ever find yourself looking for an alternative to the crisper, brighter, hoppier lagers, then give the Beachside American Lager a moment of your time.

Bottle from Whole Foods. Yellow color, grainy aroma and grainy taste. Pretty watery. Not overly bitter and had a better flavor than a macro brewer....but it isnt a "premium" lager like it says it is.

A gift from Brittany :): Pours a bright golden colour with a head that quickly dissipates. Aromas of grain and a slightly fruity. It was definately a nice flavorful brew, but needs more excitement.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Bottle courtesy Degarth. Pours a pale golden with a small white head. Aroma of light pilsner malt. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium thin mouthfeel with a very mild amount of bitterness. Decent.

Ibrew2or3 (8207) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 15, 2008
Courtesy of Degarth. Pours clear gold with thin white head. The aroma has a nice crystal malt influence to go with a faint noble hop sense. The flavor has a mild carbonation enhanced roastiness, some faint tart malt astringency and wafer thin notes of something resembling hops. The experience ends with mild malts and a lingering vague hop bitterness.
