Appearance: Small head, apple juice color, medium carbonation. Taste: Thin, watery, somewhat lacking in character. Tastes like a macrobrew, though probably a bit better.

Diabobale (242) - ITALY - NOV 10, 2014
Bevuta alla spina. Qualche grado più dell’acqua. poco strutturata e quasi insapore. Beverina sì, ma nulla di che

HIGHB4LL (656) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 22, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise Watford. Appearance: 2 fingers white head, pale straw color, clear, good lacing. Aroma: light citrus, biscuity malts, light caramel. Palate: light body, average carbonation, moderate bitter finish, crisp texture. Taste: sweet malty and biscuity malts into crisp bitter hops that finish out the taste. Overall, like the citrus , crispness is very nice, but nothing amazing. A good beer for a few rounds.

"a decently balanced mild and smooth lager. i can enjoy this with food or if one is offered, but don’t like it enough to buy it. slightly above average for the style."

Golden, thin white head and decent lacing. Mild citrus, lite lemon, and mild skunk. Full bodied lager, nice citrus, lemon zest, nice tongue zing, medium bitterness, nice dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
