b3shine (5460) - Indiana, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Draft to pint at Dutch’s. Looks solid; a mostly transparent deep orange with thin white head that dissipates into sticky lacing. Smells and tastes solid; doughy and malty with a nice hop presence and notes of caramel. Solid on the palate. A nice lager.

Pretty good lager. More taste than the Cher ami, but still missing something. I don’t know what else to say.

Sampler at the brewpub. Golden pour, grassy aroma with some malt sweetness that hints at corn. Flavor is relatively similar, and quite bland. Not great.

arminjewell (6177) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Pour on tap, light orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of rich caramel, bread, biscuit, spicy notes going into hints of grass, grain, and earthy tones, touch of cracker and a vanilla sweetness. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, into some grass, bread, yeast with some spice, touch of spice in there, finishing fairly sweet, slight dry notes as well.

Gerbeer (1788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 7, 2013
On tap. Pours amber with almost no head. Very little aroma - a whiff of cereal. Flavors of cereal, grain, and caramel. It’s the later that makes it interesting for a lager.

mcberko (6516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2013
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a clear golden orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is barely anything, maybe a bit of straw and bready malts. Flavour of straw, sweet corn malts and not much else. Bland, but drinkable and inoffensive. Not much to this one.
