Nice light grapefruit and hop flavor. A little bit of sweetness balanced this out just right. A pleasant surprise.

Tap at The Tripel in Playa Del Rey. Pours light yellow. Nice fluffy white carbonation. Wow, a really full mouthfeel for a lager. Goes down like velvet. Good crisp taste. A really good lager.

Grainy nose with grass and noble hops. Solid pils malt flavor with earthy bitterness. Solid and refreshing mouthfeel. Finishes with more hoppieness and grain. A nicely done lager, wish I could find more around socal.

Tap poured a clear golden color with nice white head. Aroma was clean lager yeast with a hoppiness and corn. The flavor was well balanced with a dry lager finish. A sharp crisp bitterness and a bit of corn fit right into style without being to powerfull. Good one.

I didnít even know this was a lager (mostly because the guy at the tap didnít know what it was when I asked...shame...) so I had a glass of 1903. Very tasty for a lager. I donít think that there is much more that can be asked for in a lager...

On tap at Public School 612 in downtown LA Dec. 11th. Pours golden with moderate head. Good lacing throughout. Quality senses from nose to finish. Very easy to drink, and flavorful. Nice beer!

served on tap. pours golden with a white frothy head. aroma was actually kind of faint, but noticeably malty. it was easy to drink and sweet tasting. not an overwhelmingly good lager, but not bad either.

Sven (229) - Lancaster, California, USA - JUL 15, 2006
Draught at Lucky Baldwins, Pasadena
Brilliant golden straw in color,modestly carbonated which lends to a good dense head. Nice clean aroma with a good hop presence. Medium bodied. No diacetyl, nice hop/malt balance, crisp and refreshing, finishes dry, quite pleasant.

bsierra (213) - Vista, California, USA - AUG 10, 2008
On tap at Mammoth Bluesapalooza 2008. Had a sweet malty/grainy aroma. Hue is golden with a small white head. Flavor has an initial sweetness followed by a spicy/crisp hoppiness. Pretty mello brew a good thirst quencher during the dusty afternoon. All and all a pretty good brew but there’s lots of other better versions of this, still pretty good session brew.

On tap at the spice table. It's a lager, ok? But it's a good one, and it goes completely perfectly with the food at this spice-centric restaurant. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
