12oz bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a clear golden with a big white head. Aroma of grains, sweetness, and slight hops. Taste of the same with more sweetness and hops. This light bodied brew is not bad at all.

Super fresh can thanks to NielsenRatings197. Drank from the can. Nose of cold metal, hay, and summer grass. A very weird, sweetness that is slightly toffee like. A medium full mouthfeel with some lightly toasted quality. Not horrible, and I bet if this were a non macro lager, it wouldnít get that much hate. Honestly reminds me of a GL Dortmunder without the mineral character.

12oz can thanks to aaaaaaron"I POUR FUCKEN BUS" n!elsen. Thanks, brospehini!! Pours a nice clean, clear gold with a large white head that lasts a while. Aromas of some light hops, cereal grains. Taste is crisp and clean upfront with a nice clean slightly hopped finish. Very clean. A touch on the sweet side is the only detracting factor. Very good.

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Fucken can @ home, picked up at some podunk liquor store in Fort Collins. Been wanting to get this tick for a while and I finally pulled the trigger when I found a sixer for $4.19. Typical clear golden appearance with a huge fizzy white head. Aroma is actually pretty grainy, a touch of toast, light bubblegum, and lemon. Fairly full body. Cracker, honey, toasted grainy, somewhat sweet, light candy flavor. Even though it was really fizzy to begin with, the carbonation seems a bit dull. A little fuller than most macro pale lagers but the flavor isnít anything too enjoyable.

Pale brown color. A pretty smooth lager, lacks the nasty bite after each sip that distinguishes a crummy usual suspect pale.

I remember having this after the brewery tour and I thought it tasted pretty good. But that was back then.

foyle (187) - Wyoming, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Appearance: pours a 1" fluffy white head which recedes moderately. There is a moderate amount of lacing. Beer is a deep golden color with noticeable streaming carbonation. Aroma: roasted barley, corn husks, clean water and a bit of hop aroma. Mouthfeel: light and crisp. This brew goes down easily and finish is quite dry. Flavor: pleasant taste of toasted bread crust, a bit of buttery toffee, some corn sweetness. There is a mild hop bitterness in the finish and aftertaste.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2013 Okay American beer. As good as or better than most mass produced American beers such as Bud, Miller, etc. And at a much lower price! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cabin fridge rate. Pours with just a slight haze to its gold body under a small fizzy white head that hung around a while, but didnít look all that natural as it laid there. The nose is pretty generic macro lager, mostly corn sweetness with not a whole lot else. Itís not especially offensive though, and thatís something at least. The flavor is a bit heavier than the ílightí beers Iíve had tonight, but that really just means more corn, so not sure thatís really a good quality. Finishes like it starts, sweet and a bit bland. Light to medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Would it kill these macro guys to throw in some hop to their lagers? Not something I could picture myself on a steady diet of, but for a night at the cabin, itíll do.
