Can into a Sam Adams pint glass Pours a very light yellow with a one-finger head which settles to a film quickly. Lacing is nice for a lager, forming white rings as you sip. Nose is yeast, lemon, perfume, and hay. Taste is subdued - grassy and touch of lemon with some sweet bisuit. Mouthfeel is very light but with good carbonation. Somewhat dry at the finish. I admit this is not a favorite style of mine but this would clearly be a good gateway beer for someone who is into macros. I will pass.

Light yeast aroma with some grains. Very light yellow color with a large white head. Lightly dour with a mild cardboard taste that strengthens in the finish.

Slipstream (2464) - USA - JUN 20, 2010
From a can that made its way from BC to PA. Big foamy head on a very lite pour. There is a fair amount of corn sweetness in this pretty standard lager. Not bad tho - better than most lagers.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2010
12oz. Can: Aroma of grain, cat pee, corn, and some Hellertau hops. Poured pale yellow in color with a small, white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Sparkling. Looks thin and Macro. Flavor is slightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of corn, Hellertau hops, plastic, and something rancid. Light body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Corn, hops, and vegetal finish is quite bad.

Blonde yellow pour light white head light lacing aroma of grains and sweet malts .... taste of sweet malts and a little funk thats supposed to be hops .... an easy drinker but not very good at all ... stick to their IPA that seems to be the bread winner for them

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2010
Can from Capone’s. Pours as light a pale gold as I’ve ever seen this side of a sake, wth 2-finger white head. Nose is grainy hopcitrus, and the flavor is hard to find, some mild hopcit and pale malt, and very watery. Forgettable.

mcberko (14406) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2010
330mL can, pours pale yellow with a white head. Aroma is very typical of a macro-lager - rice and grass. Flavour is very weak - grass, wheat and rice. Worst of Central City.

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 11, 2010
Slight hazy, very pale yellow with a thin white head. A kind of fruity aroma, little wheat hints. Nice texture. Flavour is weak and lacks body. rich honey, reminds me of a cereal. Nice bitter finish.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 21, 2010
malty, grassy aroma. Horrible appearance, practically no colour at all, just a very pale yellow. Not much too it really....typical lager. Why would you drink this if you could drink their IPA?
