COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Harkening back to the old world brewing styles, Cable Car handcrafts each and every small batch. This lager is full of body and flavors made with artesian water and natural carbonation styled to deliver a soft, enjoyable taste. Enjoy the ride!

Golden pour with a tight white head. A little more of a hop presence in the nose than expected for a pale lager. Flavor is mainly sweet malt with a light hop bitterness in the finish. Better than your average macro, but nothing to write home about.

Tallahassee, Fl. - Winn Dixie grocery store. Pours a lifeless light golden with no head and hardly any bubbles. Metal and hair tonic assault the nose upon pouring. Flavor does not fare much better with some spent olive oil notes, playground monkey-bar metal and a hint of pickle juice. Metal notes find their way in to the mouthfeel as well - feel as if I am sucking on a monkey bar. Very little redeeming qualities to this whatsoever and I’m usually pretty forgiving on pale lagers - color me pissed off that I purchased a whole six of this - thought it would at least be palatable.

Heh, I didn’t realize this was madeby the infamous City Brewery! Man, this stuff is terrible! Dark golden with no head. Aroma was of corn and a ton of acetaldehyde. Flavor much the same, along with being thin and fizzy. When I had a second one straight out of the bottle, I felt it was just about indistinguishable from bud. Found at a Winn Dixie in Orange Park, FL.

Clear straw gold color, dissapearing head, small amount of bubbles - your average looks for a pilsner. Aroma is a balanced mix of hops and malt. It brings more to the table than the watery smell of most mass produced lagers. Light carbonated palate. Flavor is slightly more malted than the mass powerhouses and has a pleasant hop bite in the end. If you care for this style than you might appreciate Cable Car Lager. It brings more to your glass than the usual suspects.

12 ounce bottle purchased at Winn Dixie Broward County, FL Not bad for the price.

glennmastrange (2240) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2007
Bottle. Light notes of light bread, toasted, herbs and dough with very faint hints of undescribable dried fruit and spice. Head is non existing and the color is a light amber. Flavor starts lightly sweet and acidic and finishes lightly sweet and acidic, and moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a lively carbonation and finishes just a touch astringent. Easy drinking and better than most similar American made styles.

whiterabbit81 (244) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 12, 2007
Almost embarassingly watery. Pours a very pale with a bubbly but almost non-existent head. Flavor is dry, crisp, but extremely watery. Guess it’s better than some macros, but i wouldn’t bother. Extra points for not being adjuncty. Anyone know if the "cable car" line is only sold at Winn Dixie in Florida?

I’m getting a real club soda taste fro’ this beer. though it does any some malt characteristics, the rest falls short of anything worth drinking

nick76 (4212) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 25, 2007
The aroma is corn malt and nondescript hops. The appearance is pale gold with a small but decent head. The flavor is simple with mostly malt and some bitter hops. The palate is better than average at first but the finish is watery. Not bad at all. Very true to the style.
