COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brightly filtered, highly carbonated, golden premium-style lager. It is lightly hopped with Polish Lublin hops. The beer will appeal to those who prefer the lighter American style beers.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 27, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear golden yellow color with a small bright white foamy head. Nose is straw and hay with some light corn notes. Palate is full and crisp with a light fizz. Flavor of corn and hay with some nice grassy hop notes, full bodied, rather pleasant and quite flavorful. I had low expectations going in and I was pleasantly suprised.

BigBeer45 (1241) - Michigan, USA - AUG 31, 2009
Has a clear straw yellow gold pour with a small wispy white head that collapses to a ring and sparse cover, mild effervescence, aromas of faint malt and grassy hops, some corn? Flavor of light malt and hop bitterness on the palate with a faint field herb flavor (from the hops?), has a thin mouth feel, ok drink.

deyholla (6511) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 17, 2009
Bottle. Poured a very pale gold with a green tint and minimal head. The Aroma was weak as well with some grainy notes. Flavor was non existent, seriously tasted a bit like carbonated water.

AllAboutStout (605) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2008
Part three of ’’Clean out the drawer of my beer fridge’’. Pours a very light gold in color. Very cloudy and no head. Smell is very vegetal and corn like. Very off. Taste is very much the same. It’s not very often that a craft beer makes me want a Bud, but this is severly lacking. Not good.

jtw (1085) - farmington, Michigan, USA - AUG 23, 2008
light straw color, with a dominant bready and "lager-like" aroma. this beer belongs in a can; not bad, but it certainly doesn’t distinguish itself from any other beer in its class.

Pours a clear golden, lightly carbonated, and thin. It smells pretty weak too--I can perhaps pick up some very light caramel malts. However, the taste is what keeps me from classifying this as a plain macro clone. The malt is much more discernible with the malt aftertaste also being more apparent compared with a macro lager. I tend to go for the heavier brews, but as far as "pale lagers" go, I’d much rather drink this guy. It’s got a much more satisfying flavor than the macros do.

jgb9348 (4659) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 2, 2008
Crystal clear coloured body with a thinnish white head. Aroma of skunky pale malt and a bit of old hops. Light-bodied; Strong malty flavour with some mild fruity tastes, some skunky hops and a nice cardboard finish! Aftertaste, just as bad - this one is definitely not showing any complexity. Overall, a pretty bad beer - but if you are polish or in that area in Detroit, try this one out. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from a store off Jos. Campau in Hamtramck (Detroit), Michigan on 25-December-2007.

Tmoney99 (10462) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Draft at new brewpub. Poured clear amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate hoppy aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium biitersweet flavor with a small bitter finish of moderate duration. Drinkable basic brew.

hopscotch (8890) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 11, 2007
Bottle... Lightly hazy straw-colored lager with a mid-sized, fizzy, white head. Great, creamy retention. Breadsy, sweet nose and flavor with hints of butterscotch and honey. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Sweet, yeasty finish. Not much in the way of hops, but I like all the breadsy yeastiness. Nice Polish-style lager! I’m gonna go against the grain and say if I lived in Michigan, I’d drink this beer every day other day! You see, this is the reason I keep trying all these damned pale lagers. I refuse to give up and it finally pays off!
