5000 (6239) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 24, 2007
Bottle: Pale straw, large fluffy white head, decent lacing, lively carbonation.   Pale malt nose, otherwise fairly non-descript.   Slightly sweetned grassy malts to start.   Tiz actually fairly clean, and even a bit thick.   Seems partially like a wheat ale.   Very slight touch of cereal and/or adjuncts at the finish, remaining slightly sweet.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Better than expected.

Bought as part of a Gordon Biersch pack. Horrid. We had trouble drinking it especially when you had the opportunity to drink the other ones. Very flat with no flavor. Do not try.

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - FEB 20, 2007
12oz bottle poured a clear yellow/gold color with a decent white head. Aroma was basic with some caramel breadiness. Taste was light bodied and easy drinking like a light lager should be. Nothing stands out to make it special, but still should have a higher rating than 11.

Cornfield (5465) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 19, 2007
The bodyís a light gold in color and it had a small fizzy head until seconds after the pour. The aroma is bready with some corn and a very faint floral hopping. Kinda sorta watery. Dead flavoring, just a bit of corn bread sweetness and a tinny bitterness. Still, better than the typical BMC.

sfontain (802) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Single bottle, $1.20 from Wine Vault, Columbus, OH. Shaker. Golden; dishsoap head becomes a small ring. Aroma just barely floral with a wee bit of malt and caramel. Flavor is kind of flat and exudes a cardboard vibe; just barely some bitterness. On the verge of watery. One of the better self-classified "light" beers Iíve had.

12 oz bottle. Pale yellow not much head. Aromas wrere classic PL and not much of that either. Flavors were light and watery. Not very exciting

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - JUL 18, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2006 (12 oz bottle, Bottled On 18-Sep-05: BevMo in La Jolla, CA) Yeah, a little old, but does a few months really matter with this beer? Iíve chilled it down to the point where ice crystals are beginning to form, but despite numbing my tongue, this beer still tastes unpleasant. Sweet honey and corn husks to start, but strong cardboard and wood dominating the finish. I donít want to find out what this will taste like when the beer warms up a bit, so Iíll get this rating over with as quickly as possible. Sweet honey and soggy paper in the nose. Light bodied with average carbonation, but the cardboard gives this beer a stale mouthfeel. Medium-straw in color and slightly cloudy in appearance. Smallish, white head could be smaller than usual because Iíve chilled this thing down so much. But it fades to a small ring and leaves no lacing on the glass. I bought a sixer of this on mega-sale expecting to send some out as throwaway bonus beers to the ratings whores, but that wouldnít be very nice of me. So not only is this a drain pour, itís SIX drain pours! Probably better on tap, not that I plan to find out.

marvinpontiac (117) - Huntington Beach, California, USA - JUL 14, 2006
Virtually no aroma and a quickly dissipating head. Very thin yellow body and too much carbonation.

chadzter (94) - huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 28, 2006
Sampler. Very light beer. Almost water. Almost no head to speak of. Light malt flaver with no aroma to speak of really. Could call it a piss color. And end with a sour after taste.

ehhdayton (1188) - USA - JAN 26, 2006
A light malt aroma with some grain can be noticed. The color is a pale yellow, with a small, rapidly disapearing head. Very light grain taste and light on the palate.
