COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Nice. The food and atmosphere probably adds a lot to the experience. Could be stronger in the flavoring department. Works well with non-spicy food. Good head and decent lace. The right touch of hop aftertaste.

Well balanced to say the least...smooth and sweet, but not strong enough....great for the style though.

Not ’amazing’, but definately a good thirst quencher. Good for an after work beer. Hot day, lawn mowed, Big Buck!

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - AUG 17, 2006
5 oz draught sample at the Gaylord, MI location, July 2006. Just faintly darker than the "Naked Light", thinish with little head....corn sugar and corn husks in the corny cornpone aroma....very sweet, full mouthfeel, clean and pretty juicy with a bit of mineral saltiness late, more hops (English-y earthy) than I’d expect....average carbonation and surprisingly bitter, dry finish. Not at all bad.

Sampled draught at Big Buck, Grapevine, Texas.
Pale yellow. Some grapefruity hops. Light bodied and rather soft with low bitterness. I can easily picture myself drinking more of this.

Tap @ Brewpub with Nuffield. Rating from 2004 notes. Yellow color with a white head. An odd cider like aroma. A natural lager flavor that feels less processed than expected.

Overall, a very decent pale lager. I enjoyed this one, but probably would not get it again given the other options Big Buck has. Worth a try, but like I said, Big Buck has much better beers.

Dogbrick (7870) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 11, 2006
Sample at the Gaylord location: Clear yellow-gold color with a medium thin white head and spotty lacing. Light malt and hops in the nose. Thin, fizzy body with hops and corn flavors. The finish is vaguely hoppy and does not linger much. Pretty forgettable.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 7, 2007
On tap at the Gaylord, MI location. Clear straw body, medium off-white head. Light biscuity, floral aroma. Crisp herbal, floral hops bite balanced by light bready malt. Kind of bland but inoffensive with no serious flaws.
