BMan1113VR (7822) - 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.

DocLock (7703) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2008
Bottle from State Line. Poured dark straw going toward copper, with off-white head. Aroma was grainy, cereally malt, some hopcitrus. The taste was crisp and clean, not offering anything out of the ordinary, but not offering anything offensive either.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 16, 2008
Pours a transparent copper orange with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Aroma of lightly toasted and sweet caramel malts with a touch of lager yeast. Body starts fairly full and semi-sweet with a bready maltiness and a drier toasty finish. A pretty good Vienna.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2009
A Mes rate. Tap at the Rake. Clean dark golden with a thin white head. Looks like a pale ale rather than a lager. Lovely pale malt snout. One dimensional but still nice. Fruity flavour with some polite nods in a lagerly direction but this is much more of a pale ale. Good citric hints in the finish. Nice stuff.

Ughsmash (7092) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 22, 2007
Bomber. Poured clear healthy caramel with lots of rising carbonation and a short cap of beige head. The aroma was quite enjoyable with wet grass and bready sweetness accented by ample doses of floral and citrusy hoppage.. very Czech-lagery as one might say. Flavor was even better.. crisp bread and fruity notes at the core with bright citrus and floral bitterness leaving an exclamation on the finish. Crisp and clean on the palate with a smooth flow. Didn’t see this one coming!

bb (6784) - Alamo, California, USA - JAN 17, 2008
Bottle. Copper/amber beer with a tan head. Malty, light spice aroma. Clean malt flavor with a bit of grass and spice. Medium-light body. Easy drinking. LIngering light malt, light mineral, light spice.

Ibrew2or3 (6768) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 21, 2008
Bomber shared with Degarth courtesy of Degarth. Thanks again. The pour comes out deep copper with thin off white head. The aroma is mild with faint grainy to pale maltiness followed by some spice hops. The taste is full and refreshing with a solid pulse of pale malts to grainy malts to mild caramel and biscuit malts. Hops are noticed too with floral flowery notes and spice. Nice session beer with solid flavors.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 14, 2010
On tap for growler fills at Half Time. Pours a mostly clear light brown with a thin beige head. Sweet caramel, grains, plastic. Earthy and malty with a bitter hop presence, but very boring. Finishes with some bitterness and grain. Inoffensive but very dull.

rosenbergh (6493) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 26, 2012
355 ml bottle. At Coney Island Brewing Co, Coney Island, Brooklyn, NY. Clear amber colour with small tan head. Piney resiny hops in aroma. Raisins, sweet fruit and malt in flavour. Very drinkable and tasty lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DuffMan (6462) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 11, 2012
Bottle. Bright amber with a medium off-white head. Nice toasty caramel flavour. Grassy hops with a metallic edge (are there noble hops in here?) More like a vienna than a lager, but a nice session beer regardless.
