hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 13, 2003
Co-rated by Scraff! Sparkling clear, straw-colored beer. Small, creamy white head with great retention. Lots of buttered popcorn in the nose. Very light caramel as well. The flavor is buttery with blasts of butterscotch. Medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Short, semi-sweet, refreshing finish.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 27, 2007
Dark gold, creamy white head. Light buttery flroal nose up front that fades into a dreid fruit and earth finish. Similar flavor with just a touch of peppery hops, and hints of earthy nutiness added to the mix. Nicely balanced as it seem pretty much like a light pils of sorts. Light bodied, light carbonation, soft bitter finish. Might be good with some hot wings, but truly not my thing...

nuplastikk (4269) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 9, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2009 Draft at the brewpub. Australian-style Lager. Mildly sweet, with a touch of nuttiness. Nothing extraordinary, relatively balanced. A little sourness in the finish. Decent session beer, nothing more.

BeerandBlues2 (9400) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Tap. Pours clear dark gold with a large, frothy white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is Pils and grain malt with corn notes and light spicy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with light hops and medium bitterness, and a clean lager character with a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

Not that great, not that bad. The first time I tasted it I was told it was somewhat like a Fosters. I would put it on the same level as Foster’s but it tastes more like a staple European lager with not much aroma like Maartens or Stella Artois.

alobar (2719) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2008
Golden yellow color with no head. Minimal aroma of some hops and malts. Tastes of malts with some hops. Nothing impressive, but not revolting either.

Mirage52 (147) - New Market, Maryland, USA - MAY 15, 2006
On tap on the Maryland Brewers Festival. Poured a golden color with a moderate sized head. Taste is rather plain, with a pronounced hop finish. Very drinkable, but also forgettable.

KUEric (886) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 30, 2010
Malty, funky vanillaish flavor. A little grassy on the aroma. Very standard pale ale looking.
