grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 15, 2006
I liked the bottle. Interesting in that it will not allow you to "glug" the beer when pouring it. Pours a slightly rich straw color with thin pellucid head. Lots of effervescence nucleates on the sides of the glass but it doesnít turn into head somehow. Lightly malty, doughy aroma, with slight hint of mini-wheats. Vague, ever-so-slight hoppiness, but not enough to actually assign descriptors. Flavor is acidic at first from the lively carbonation but kind of flattens into a dull maltiness. Mostly a cereal-like taste. Ever so light herbal quality to the bitterness. Finishes with sharp bite from the carbonation, making this quite pleasing as a post-run libation. This is ok, but not any better than something like a Heineken or Grolsch. Iím pretty sure itís rated higher because itís made by a micro, which is BS.

Not a bad lager. Little character but has a light malty body that is well balanced and drinkable. I wish it were a bit dryer so it was more thirst quenching and had more hops but for what it is this is a decent product. At $14.50 for 12 - 11oz bottles however I will take summerfest 12 packs every time.

This is better than BMC, but not by much. If I was Full Sail, Iíd be a bit ashamed of this. Looks like a typical lager. Very pale, good head. Flavor was thin to non-existent. Hops were barely noticeable. A bit of a citrus aroma, but thatís about it. Session might be the right name, as theyíve dumbed this down so much itís like drinking Bud.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - APR 28, 2006
Bottled. Pours pale amber/straw with a spare white head, no lace. Interesting nose with oranges/fruit and maybe a tiny bit of bubblegum? Light body, inital sweetness and a nice mouthfeel. Lager crispness with some citrus that finishes nicely despite the almost non-existent hops. No reason to here to discredit the ísessionableí reference.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 14, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours a neat, clear fully golden with a handsome, frothy, off-white head. Very fresh nose with some citrusy acidity. Light-bodied, dry and tart but also quite refreshing. No bitterness. Tasted at the Oklahoma Beer tasting March 06 hosted by mjames and lilannie. 250306

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - APR 14, 2006
Bottle. Pours a Bud yellow without much head. Better than the look would suggest. Mostly fruit (apples) and malt but pretty balanced. A good session brew.

OldMrCrow (1945) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 10, 2006
From that curious little bottle.

Pours a cornstraw yellow; the aroma is a slightly grassy, slightly sour, slightly macro-lager in tone. The taste bears few surprises; this is a straightfoward flavorfully unambitious lager; the biggest surprise is how strikingly clean it is compared to some of the less well crafted versions of the style. Fair enough, but I just canít get excited about it. Actually tasting something here is like trying to grasp the wind.

paulmetzger (154) - Pocatello, Idaho, USA - APR 9, 2006
Pours pale yellow with fine beaded head. Has the nose of a good german lager, skunky and grassy with a small floral touch. Starts a bit sweet and becomes grassy, finishing very light with almost no aftertaste. A good outdoors beer. Nice bottle.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 30, 2006
Courtesy of Mjames. <P> Sweaty shoe leather, grains, grass, BO. Not pleasant smelling. Yellow gold in color with a lazy white head. Fore is grainy and fairly thick with malt. Very nice mouthfeel for a lager. Has the obligatory lager crispness and is satisfying as a thirs quencher.

Bright golden with medium head. Lemony aroma with a touch of buttery malts. Lemony and underhopped, borderline bland.
