Frank (3262) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2015
This is clear yellow w/ a foamy head. It is lightly skunked even though itís in a brown bottle. It is sweet and syrupy for the style and yet still devoid of any real malt character. There is a slight bitterness in the finish to compensate but overall this stuff is just tough to drink.

crossovert (8705) - Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2015
335ml twist off bottle. Really was hoping this would drink like water, it did not, just crappy light pale lager

Bottle shared late night in the hotel lobby during RBWG 2015. Pours crystal clear pale yellow, with a creamy white head. Basic cereal and pale malt aroma. Medium sweet flavor, further sugary pale malts, cereal, hay. Light bodied with average carbonation. Simplistic cereal finish, mellow hay, white bread.

DrSilverworm (8001) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Tasted during RBWG post-grand tasting shit-show hotel-tasting. 12oz bottle. Clear golden, slight orange color. Off-white head. Solid lace. Thicker ridges. Medium to bigger body. Kind of soft, sort of rough lighter carbonation. Bready malt, some macro-type bite. Moderate sweet taste, mild bitter. Mild bit of tart. Some funk, macro bite. No. Great terrible lager.

BVery (7472) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - FEB 2, 2015
Bottle. Clear pale gold to yellow pour with a small dissipating white head. Corn, toast, grain, mild sweetness. Fairly clean. Not totally awful, but not a good beer, either.

HIGHB4LL (800) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 26, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford. Appearance: finger white head, pale straw color, clear, head does not last, ok lacing. Aroma: light fruit, and floral, light wheat. Palate: light body, average carbonation, light bitter finish, thin texture. Taste: light sweet fruit and what, into light caramel and finishes slightly floral bitter. Overall, decent for the style, but nothing amazing. Very drinkable. Like bud or coors, but with actual flavor.
