Draught: Typical pilsner look: white head on top of a clear light yellow golden body. Smell is also pretty typical but just a little more bad than a regular pilsner. Something distinctive makes it less drinkable. Kind of a regular pilsner.

Wow, hadn’t had this in forever but it’s hard to argue with free. Not much aroma but the taste is pleasant malt and sweet corn. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Transfer from BA review on 3-25-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – Pours a crystal clear golden color with tons of tiny carbonation bubbles seen streaming up through the brew. Upon pouring there is a one finger pure white head that fades relatively quickly to leave a light level of lace on the sides of the glass Smell – The aroma is mainly of a grainy and bready smell mixed with some lighter notes of caramel. With these aromas are a moderate presence of a grassy and herbal hop smells. Taste – The taste begins with a lighter bready and grainy taste. There is the lightest hint of caramel sweetness upfront that then fades more toward the middle and the end. As the caramel fades, some of the grassy hops detected in the nose hits the taste buds. This light grassy hop is soon accompanied by a herbal flavor which develops more strength as the taste gets to the end. At it’s finish with all the flavors mingling together a crisp and fairly clean taste is left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the thinner to average side with a carbonation that is on the higher side. The thinner body and higher carbonation compliment the grainy and lighter flavors of the brew quite nicely and make for a crisp and quite refreshing brew. Overall – While not a flavor powerhouse the brew is rather refreshing. It is crisp and clean and very easy and enjoyable to drink.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2014 Light but decently clean pale lager. Low on flavors and with some adjuncts in the aroma. Refreshing.

Vestlake (144) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUL 16, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2014 Pours a straw color with virtually no head. Aroma is corn and grain, bringing back fond memories of college. Taste is classic malty lager. I am enjoying this beer much more than I thought I would. Overall, a very nice lager. This will have a place in my refridgerator.
