Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2008
Sample at the brewpub. This beer is a clear yellow-gold color with a wispy bone white head that disappears quickly. Stringy lacing. Mildly hoppy aroma with notes of corn and malt. Light-bodied with light grassy hops and grainy malt flavors. The finish is mildly bitter hops and the aftertaste does not last long. Overall this is unmemorable.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 12, 2007
Pale and transparent polished brass in color with a fluffy white foam cap on top. Paprika, sandstones and buttery sourdough crust - along with a garden bite - sneak up the nose. Some fabric sheets come in on the backend. Larger flavor profile than expected, laying in with dinner rolls soaked in golden sweet whole kernel corn juice. Sand goes over light grahams, and margarine slips over sourdough. Herbaceous honeysuckle and marigolds drum in the distance. Supportive carbonation and hard to seriously fault, finishing out with a sweet cream cornbread outtake.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 27, 2006
Very grainy with very light hops. Better than the macros but nothing to get excited about.

argo0 (11317) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 29, 2006
Clear straw body with white head. Aroma is medium sweet, grassy, some grain. Taste is medium sweet, grassy, some apple, light grain, low bitterness. Light body, some crispness.

NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 11, 2005
Golden pour with a white head. Grainy malts and some noble hop aromas. Clean and smooth. Much like other contiental pilsners I’ve had, just much fresher.

kujo9 (1093) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - JAN 17, 2005
On tap @ Cornerstone: Small creamy lasting white head w/ a clear golden body. Light, clean, grainy malt aroma w/ some green apple & DMS. DMS is no where near as strong as Rolling Rock. Well balanced, grainy malt flavor w/ a little corn & apple in the flavor as well. Aftertaste is clean and short lived. Finish is a little on the sweet side. Smooth m/f, slightly creamy but thin palate. Medium carbonation. Not a bad version of a light beer. Typical flavors of a Macro version, but grainy malt flavor is a little more intense. Some hop flavor and aroma could improve this, but with BW college around the corner, I don’t think they’re trying to scare anyone away.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - JAN 8, 2005
Another lager, just a regular tasting beer like a budweiser nothing spectacular or different.

3.2
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
aracauna (3034) - Georgia, USA - DEC 30, 2004
This one comes in with a pale gold body and a slight, white head. The aroma carries whiffs of grass and lemon. That leads into a flavor consisting of mostly straw malt. Seems a little sandy in the flavor. Not bad for a pale lager, but it is what it is and nothing more.
