Pours yellow in color. Not much head. Smells skunky and a little grainy. Has a little bit of a spicy cardboard flavor. Kinda of skunky and watery as well. Not a quality brew. Has a weird spicy finish that makes it drinkable. Not a really bad brew but it is pretty generic.

The aroma is weak but does have some discernable malt and hops. Incidentally, it smells like a German or Dutch Macro lager. The appearance is odd in that it is apparently unfiltered. It is pale gold with a smaller head but I am not so sure I like an unfiltered pale lager; the sediment seems to detract from the appearance. The flavor is bland with lightly toasted malt and herbal hops. The palate is thin. Other than for the particles this is an unremarkable beer.

Clear golden appearance, medium low head. Malty aroma, sweet taste, slightly unbalanced. Average Pale Lager.

hotstuff (4269) - Indiana, USA - JUN 23, 2003
A beer that poured a medium sized white head with no lacing. The carbonation was quite lively in this beer. The body was clear with a pale yellow hue. The aroma was pretty typical of a Lager. It was somewhat of a smooth drink from start to finish in my opinion with a light and watery palate. This beer did not have much character to it.

Somehow arrived un-skunked in it's green bottle. Honestly, that would have at least added something to it - it had some mellow bready malts, but that's all - thin, bubbly and generally hop-less. Give me a pils to quench my thirst. Color was a clear dark yellow with nice sized white head.

Call this one the bad child of the bunch. Very dissapointingly bland for a German Lager. Nothing to shout about, but still better than anything mass produced in America, as well as anything named "Buffalo Butt."

thedm (4971) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUN 22, 2003
This brew poured a small head of fine white bubbles and a carbonated transparent straw wheat yellow body. It had a hoppy and a medium strength lager flavor of malt and hops. It was slightly bitter initially and with a lingering hop finished.

Golden color, semi-skunked. Somewhat nutty(?) taste with a dry finish. On the watery side.

I found it better than that other pale lager, the one form Holland. Beefed up skunk smell. Tasted watery, somewhat malt assertive, generic.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - SEP 10, 2004
Bottle. Crystal clear gold body with a thick foamy white head. Skunky nose. Taste’s like skunk, cardboard, CO2, corn syrup, and adjuncts. I don’t know if there are alot of adjuncts in this, but it tastes like corn syrup. Not bad, but not good by any stretch. Do yourself a favor and spend your $6.99 on something else.
