COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A strong gold lager for the unsuspecting prey. Gold in color, medium in body, a subtle malt character and smooth finish you can really sink your teeth into!

Pours a clear golden with a thick and fine-bubbled eggshell head. Aroma is crisp and malty with a hint of apple. Crisp flavor has notes of sweet malt and apple plus a snip of hops. Smooth texture is average, but this still an above average brew. Should make you purr.

jgb9348 (4635) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Crisp golden coloured body with a very thin white head. Aroma of pale malt, alcohol, light sugars and a hint of honey. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive metallic malt up front with a strong hint of flowers, some deeper yeast and a relatively bitter finish showing some english or german hops. Aftertaste has a bit of a malt characteristic with an assertive bitterness, some lighter grassy notes and a bit of sweetness, but not much. Overall, not such a great offering, but about right for the style, perhaps on the bitter side of things, but not awful. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Washington (Foggy Bottom [Eye St]) on 14-September-2013 for US$2.00 sampled at home in Washington on 03-November-2013.

obguthr (3636) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Little aroma, perhaps peach. Clear amber, headless. Dry peach flavor. Fruity for a lager and not really doing much for me. A rare miss from a great brewery, but still respectable.

Braudog (5578) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - SEP 30, 2013
Bottle. Golden and light, with almost no visible body presence. Drinks with a flatter essence, a definite corny malt personality at the forefront. Very easy to drink for something above 6%, but one of the less notable offerings from this place. (#5270, 9/30/2013)

2013. Draft. Pours clear gold with a thin white head. Tastes sweet, malty, like corn and faint hops. Light body and medium carbonation. Smells sweet, malty, and like grains. Nothing really stands out.

bytemesis (2952) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle obtained in Local Swap 5 1/2 - thanks! Pours crystal clear amber with a small white head that dissipates quickly with some lacing. Aroma is cramel, grain, light hay. Flavor is the same, lightly sweet, light bitter, caramel, with a bit of a bite at the end. Medium body. Not bad.
