MrHangover (3098) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 25, 2015
Bottle, brought by a friend from Chicago. Pours a lovely, clear copper coloured beer with a big white head on top. Aroma is grainy, malty and bit skunky. Flavor is mildly bitter, slight citric and has a medium bittersweet finish. Really soft, subtle and easy going, like a decent lager should have.

Bottle. Slightly murky light orange pour with a smaller white head. Cereal grains, somewhat stale smelling, hint of light fruit. Not good.

Cybercat (3874) - Georgia, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Pours clear, dark amber with a thick, if not persistent, buff head. Looks more like an ale than a typical lager. Malty aroma has a strong fruity overtone, apple with some pear. Flavor is more pale ale than lager, malty with some fruity notes and a hint of hops. Nothing special, but enjoyable. Body is fairly firm, if lacking fizz. Overall, not too shabby.

[Bottle] Bright golden pour with a dense white head on top. Notes of cereal grains and a light grassy bitterness in the nose. Flavors of grassy hops, and lighter herbal note, grains and crackers. More bitterness than expected. Good balance. Overall, pretty decent in my opinion.

Not a normal tasting pale lager. Hop taste was week and over weird. Sub par pal lager.

Bottle at the Renaissance, Chicago O’Hare bar. I was hoping for something more impressive with this name from a local brewer but I was disappointed.

wmubronco1992 (660) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Bottle. Pours light honey color. Healthy white head that dissipates to a foamy finish. Some lacing. Not picking up much aroma. Taste is a grainy bitter. Dry finish. Not terrible, not great, just ok.

Fredis23 (515) - Hickory Hills, Illinois, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Light Copper, Huge Long Lasting Foamy Head, That Left Lots Of Lacing. Faint Hop Aroma. Grainy, Malty, Good Hop Finish, lasting Light Bitter aftertaste. I also had my portion of beers from Stevens Point, WI that were below par but this one was quite good. Whoever says that this one is like a macro, ever did not have a macro in a while and do not remember what they taste or should write me, so I could try a macro that has actual hops in it. Like I’ve said, pretty good for a style that is somewhat bland and is not that exciting. Refreshing and good thirst Quencher. Worth a Try.

Pailhead (5438) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Bottle: The aroma is pretty nonexistent. There’s just a hint of bread/cereal and grass. It pours a transparent gold with a one finger white head that quickly fades to a thin film. There is some decent thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with with a very quick dose of light honey and cereal. The finish has light grass with just a hint of apple. It’s light bodied with moderate-lively carbonation that is a bit prickly at times. Overall, there just isn’t much here. Sure, more flavor than your standard BMC, but this is still pretty bland. I guess you can call it a thirst quencher since there just isn’t much here to get offended by. That also means there’s nothing here to look forward to or get excited about either. There’s certainly worse out there.
