JDBaker11058 (1442) - Maryland, USA - AUG 21, 2010
Appearance: medium yellow, with a short, fading head, no lacing, and lots of dark floaties. Aroma: slightly metallic, musty, grains and sawdust; some sweetness and a little citrus. Taste: golden raisins, honey and granola, with a very slight metallic bitterness. Finish: short, a bit tangy, and sweet. Notes: Actually not that bad, although the appearance and aroma were concerning. The sweetness of it is almost like a Red Stripe. If there was a bit more carbonation and none of that hidden metallic tang, this would, I believe, be a top-notch session lager.

shrubber85 (8472) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 5, 2010
Bottle. Honey and hay malt aroma - actually kind of nice. Golden yellow color with minimal head. Slightly sweet barley malt and lightly bitter hay hops flavor. Really pretty good for an African pale lager.

nuplastikk (4901) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2010
12oz bottle. Straw yellow with a super-soapy, steady head. Slight haze. Clean aroma, a touch of distant lemon maybe. Creamy, soft carbonation. As I remembered it, this beer is not bad at all. Somewhat like a noble hopped cream ale, there is a lot of doughy character. Not much hop character, just some faint lemon-peppery spiciness. Subtle and super drinkbable. Excellent session beer, well done.
