This smooth lager strikes a delicate balance between malt and hops in the aroma, palate, finish and body. It has more body and less hops than a Pilsner, and less malt and more hops than a Munich style lager. 30 IBU.

Not as strong as I was expecting. Slight citrus finish. Very smooth and drinkable.

Terminus (3544) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 26, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2004 Keith-Gorgeous golden color and a hops/malt aroma. Not light or strong, this beer is unique to the nose, eyes, and mouth. I could see drinking this in many situations. rating 3.2 Eric-pours light orange hue with nice white head-decent lacing from the start. sweet, noble hop aroma-grassy and spicy with a touch of skunkness, but was not detracting. flavors are spicy hops, slight malts and a firm hop bitterness on the finish. good body and mouthfeal. the bottle said "best by 6/14/04 and it was still good!

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 25, 2004
Bottle pours golden, large frothy white head, fair carbonation, with sticky lacing.   Malts, grass, slight grain, and cheese on the nose.   Notes of malts, grass, and salt on the tongue.   Has a minor salty finish, slight sweet grass and malts, but a lingering light salty flavor.   Otherwise its fairly drinkable, but perhaps not my style.   Thanks goes out to TChrome for the trade!

Gold Coloring. Small Head. Hops. Malt. Not too bad...but pushin’ average for no distinctive taste.

Gold is a misnomer. This is a nice copper, not gold. Cloud-like head. Slight tingly hops in the aroma, and the hops back up the smooth malt in the flavor nicely. Tingles the tongue.

civforprez (229) - Galesburg, Illinois, USA - JUN 3, 2004
This is a good lager. Nice head, golden color. Aroma is a little malty and flavor has subtle citrus. Definitely a beer to drink on a regular basis if you can get it.

heemer77 (5289) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 31, 2004
Pours from the bottle with a medium, foamy, white head. The body is a slightly dark gold. The mouthfeel has more body than expected. Aroma is malts and green beans. The taste is green beans, grapefruit with a nice balance of the hops and malt. Lots of lacing. refreshing and good for the style.

irishsnake (355) - Oakland, California, USA - MAY 30, 2004
pours a brilliant gold, with a white head that quickly turns to a long-lasting collar. flavor and aroma start nicely toasty and malty, but are eventually marred by emergence of butterscotch (diacetyl) notes as beer warms.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - MAY 28, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2010 Gold with puffy head. Nose is a bit lemony and sweet, slightly grainy, some excellent hops. Flavor is light, somewhat grassy, bit of lemon. Excellent hop bite at the end, very crisp, amazingly refreshing. A glorious summer beer.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 22, 2004
Bottle. Bright copper golden with small white head. Malty aroma, hints of honey, very light hops. Incredibly well balanced. Delicately malty, the finish is excellent. If I can get my hands on a fresher bottle I’ll rerate this, otherwise this is a great beer.
