DSG (6162) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 14, 2009
(10/31/08) Draught at Lucky Devils in Hollywood. Cloudy golden-orange color with a white head. Aroma of malt and some grassy hops. Sweetish malty flavor with some bread and a nice bitter grassy hoppy finish. A decent Lager.

On tap at Lucky Baldwins. Clear gold in color with a white head; lacing. Aroma of fruit, grape, and bread/corn. Flavor of grapes, bread, corn, fruit. Pretty strong flavor that was slightly sweet. Top notch for the style.

I love the aroma and flavor of this lager. Sweet yet dignified on the palate. A great quaffer. But for some reason, it makes the roof of my mouth itch. Yeah, I’m kind of allergic to it. Doesn’t stop me from ordering a pour every so often though. A regular at my local pub and for good reason.

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.

Tap at The York. Heavy corn element is correct. Very creamy mouthfeel and nose. Not my favorite, but blame the style. This execution is almost German.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2010 Rerate because Ken made such a flippin’ out about how great this was. I don’t feel any differently about it. Still corny, and reminds me a lot of Grain Belt. On tap @ Father’s Office L.A. Clear straw with a one finger white head, creamy with fair retention. Grassy citrus, corn, and pale grain domiante the aroma. The flavor is much the same, and, despite the sweetness (the big corn and sweet notes almost have me cry out "diacetyl! , but not quite), manages to pull off a semi-dry finish. Bitterness peaked @ a 2. Moderate prickly carbonation with a light body. Better and more flavorful than a macro, but not by enough for me to want to get this regularly.

Golden-straw colour. Grainy, creamed corn nose. Canned corn, grain and a hint of hop on the palate. Reasonably dry despite all the residual sugars. I’m really not a fan but he definitely hit the mark as far as my understanding of the concept.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 29, 2010
On tap at Hamilton’s. Pours golden with a thin white head. This is a very light beer in body. It has a certain sweetness. I can tell there’s lots of corn dextrose here. It’s sort of fun in a retro beer way.

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.
