Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2006
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain/bread), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a light note of lemon zest. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Clean, nicely balanced, decent rendition of a light golden lager; if only BMC beers were up to this standard.

Yellowish gold. Thin head. A little floral and a little bready. A little bread, a little floral hops and lots of corn. Is crisp.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 12, 2006
Draught at O’Briens: Clear yellow, no head or lacing.. The nose is lightly hoppy with some citrus malt qualities and a surprisingly chewy malt backdrop. The flavor is chewy and nicely malty too. It’s just the perfect level of citrus notes. Lots of character for a lager.
