UPDATED: MAY 9, 2012 On tap. Pours with a large, white head and a deep yellow body. Head is long lasting. Aroma is sweet, with some grains and maybe a bit of banana. Taste is lightly corn with some vanilla. Smooth mouthfeel.

Wow thatís a bad original rating. Re-rate: Clear golden yellow, somewhat pale, white head slow to fade. Aromas show a light hop element, some bready malt, light corn sweetness, very very low levels of DMS. Clean yeast wise. Flavors show a light fruit note, low hops and sweet bready, malty, cornbread. Lightly sulfury. Clean, light crisp. Bitter to balance. Dry and light. Very drinkable.

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, Iíd rather reach for something else. Maybe when itís 100 degrees in LA, Iíd grab this one over one of the more fizzy yellow brews.

Draught @ Underbelly, San Diego, CA Pours yellowish orange with a smooth head. Aroma of grass, citrus, hay, malts and lemon. Taste is smooth, slightly grainy and citrusy with some lemon and hay. Finish is smooth, sweetish and earthy with some corn, lemon and hay. A bit untypical.

From a flight at Tratoria Neapolis in Pasadena CA. Pours a clear gold with an off white head. Light malty nose. Flavors of biscuit, butterscotch and bubblegum. One of the most complex pale lagers I have had.

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.

On tap at Trappist Provisions. Believe it or not, Iíve been tracking this one down for a while now. I can see why itís rated so highly as a pale lager. It kind of changes your mind on what this style can actually be. It pours a clear golden color with a nice white head. The aroma is rather spicy and floral with a light maltiness that has some corn and apple, but not over the top. The flavor is full bodied with prominent spicy and floral hops, more corn and light malts. Very creamy mouthfeel. Excellent stuff.

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.

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.
