bhensonb (10342) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Light caramel aroma with a hint of hop. Slightly hazy amber color with a decent white head. Near full body with creamy, brisk carbonation. Caramel flavor with some pretty decent hop - noble, citrus - floral? Seems a bunch. Definitely citrus. The finish is reasonably dry, and the bitter tends to build. This is 50% of the way to Boston Beer’s Imperial Lager. Very nice in the mouth. Best lager I’ve had today, this week, this month, ... It is really good - an ale drinker should be able to enjoy this.

Tmoney99 (10073) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 17, 2007
Bottle from River’s Bend. Poured clear amber color with a large frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate sour citrus aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Drinkable smooth brew.

rlgk (9379) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2012
Bottle. Deep golden/copper beer with a quite nice lasting offwhite head. Malty fruity aroma, bready, biscuits, a little roasted, grassy herbal, citrus, some pear and apples. Malty bready flavor with grapefruit, mango, pear, biscuits, caramel, some bitter hops.

Ratman197 (9020) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 3, 2007
Bomber poured a clear copper with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, citrus and bread. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread, carmel and citrus with a crisp lingering bitter finish.

daknole (8537) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 29, 2009
Bottle. Another day another bland lager. Golden pour, white head. Very malty nose with some hop notes. Flavor is bland and boring. NOTHING to distinguish itself from any other lager.

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 10, 2008
Bottle… Clear amber lager with a mid-sized, wispy, off-white head. Good retention. Toasty, biscuity, toffee and spicy hop aroma. Medium to full-bodied with intermediate carbonation. Like the nose, the flavor is biscuity and toasty with moderate, spicy, European hop bitterness. Lengthy, moderately bitter finish.

hopdog (8521) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2012
22oz bottle. Poured a hazy amber color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of grains, biscuits, ritz crackers (or is it that because I just ate some), and some citrus. Tastes of the same.

JoeMcPhee (8188) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2007 Amber-gold with a light malty nose. Light earthiness with a touch of caramel and faint grassiness as well. Flavour is decently malty with light earthy hops. Moderately sweet up front, light graininess throught the middle with a touch of grassy hops on the back. I didn’t enjoy it all that much the first few times, but it’s grown on me lately... oh, yeah, and the label is beyond creepy.

Drake (7926) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 9, 2008
Bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville. Copper pour with a three finger head. Retention and lacing are both lacking. Crisap aroma with notes of grain, citrus, grass, pepper. Sweet grassy taste with a citrus hop bite. Medium body.

BMan1113VR (7786) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 8, 2011
On tap. Pours with a clear orange-copper body with a small off-white head. Aromas are of honey, biscuit, light flowery hops and a touch of fruity esters (huh?). Flavors of caramel, bready, crisp. Balanced towards malt sweetness. Bland. Light bubbles. Thin.
