A sweet malty/grainy aroma. Beer is gold with a small white head. Flavor is initial sweetness followed by a spicy/crisp hoppiness. Easy drinking, thirst quenching. Not alot going on here, but still a nice beer.

Tasted on tap at Beer Revolution on 2/17/2012. This Pale Lager pours a hazy yellow gold color from the tap. Small to medium bodied white foamy head. The aroma is cereal, grainy, sweet, orange and honey. A touch of corn, but in a good way. A medium bodied pale lager. The malts are cereal and grainy, some orange and orange peel. The hops are floral and citrusy. Nice balance. Good carbonation. I know this beer has a lot of corn in it, but all you can taste of the corn is the sweetness. Light and refreshing. Touch of orange at the finish. Very easy drinking beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter with some residual sweetness.

Draught. Bright golden. Clean roasted corn and nuts in aroma. Quaffable palate, with clean yet distinctive sweetness. Nice stuff.

Pint at some Studio City, CA restaurant. Poured a pretty clear yellow color, foamy white head. Aroma was light malts, adjuncts, crisp hops. Flavor was light malts, crisp hops. Drinkable in a pinch, I’d rather reach for something else. Maybe when it’s 100 degrees in LA, I’d grab this one over one of the more fizzy yellow brews.

This is actually a very decent pale lager. Draft at Stone 14th anniversary. Grain, bready malt, lightly herbal and sweet, with bits of hops. Very drinkable.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 27, 2013
On tap at Father’s Office, Santa Monica. Compared favorably with the Stillwater pre-Pro lager. Vibrant golden-orange pour with a lively, fluffy head and plenty of brimming carbonation. Nose was very inviting with plenty of bitter hops, a touch of must and tart fruit. Bracing flavors, quite sharp and grassy, just a bit of funk peeking out from the herbal deliciousness.

stouby (3820) - Holbćk, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2011
Draught at BoHo. Clear yellow with a white head. Aroma light to moderate malty (caramel), moderate+ hoppy (citrusy, piney). Flavor light sweet, moderate to heavy bitter, long duration. Light to medium body flat. Very nice.

FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 28, 2004
This beer has a lightly sweetish corn aroma to it, but it is backed by a solid maltiness as well. The taste is sweet, smooth an creamy. The finish then abruptly kicks in with a solid hit of bitterness that nicely balances the front of this beer. This is quite a good commercial example, it is sharp and biting yet smooth and creamy, with a hint of clean sweetness to it. This is quite enjoyable, and I wish there where more commercial example of this style out there.
