PlainsDrifter (75) - Adelphi, Maryland, USA - JUN 29, 2011
On tap at BJs restaurant Kissimee, FL. Pours pale golden brown, medium white head, medium carbonation. Aroma of hay, citrus. This is a flavorful light beer, one of the best light beers that I have had.

JaBier (4762) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Sample at BJís Polaris on 6/27/14. Clear yellow pour with a medium white head. Aroma of malt, metal and water. Sweet malt and crisp hop flavor with a sweet and malty finish.

radio_nowhere (746) - Maryland, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Draft at their Frederick, MD restaurant, served in a pilsner glass. Golden color with bright white head. Aroma of sweet grainy pale malt. Taste adds lightest note of corn and grass. Light body, moderate-heavy carbonation, crisp with clean finish. Does what a pale lager does, refreshing without a lot to it (not offensive though).

DrSilverworm (6002) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Pint on tap at the Cincinnati location. Mostly clear yellow color. Thin ring of white head. Couple dots of lace. Lighter body. Kind of a sharp carbonation. Light bite to it. Flavor profile is like saltines. Just some mild watery cracker taste. Light bitter, and moderate bite to it. A great replication of the unappealing cheap pale lager. Should satisfy the Bud Light zombies.

kevinator (863) - The Colony, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2014
This should be rated for what it is as there is nothing truly superb about the style. Very faint light malt aroma. Light golden to yellowish color with a slight fizzy head. Light palate with a lot of carbonation. Taste was of grassy and pale malts with a small hops bitterness. Not much else here but very drinkable and better than its mega-brewery buddies.

bhensonb (10731) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Pours gold with a white head. Light bready aroma. Med minus body. Flavor is lightly bready with some very light hop. Decent for a light lager.

DialSquare (2522) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 25, 2014
On tap at the Tallahassee location. Limited note: pale malt, sweet corn, biscuity, thin. My least favorite of the bjís sampled. - 5.0

Aurelius (4042) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 11, 2014
AR is that of a rinsed milk jug. Clear, pale. Lightly sweet, corny, no bittering at all. Very light body. Lackluster. With PorterPounder & Son, Tallahassee.

Tap. Light yellow clear gold. Slightly grainy, not bad with slight lemon and cracker. Light and wet. Not terrible.

Headbanger (3230) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Flight 10/28/10 (Tucson-Broadway)-Pours a clear golden with a small ring for a head. Aroma of grains. Taste of malt, grains, and a bitterness. This light bodied brew is not bad but is a good brew for newcomers.

douglas88 (5812) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 12, 2013
On tap at the Hillsboro location. Pours a clear yellow color with a small white head. A nice smooth grainy nose with some honey. The flavor is basic, malt forward, very clean and light lager. Some yeasty flavors, a bit drier than expected. OK.
