On tap at Bartlett hall. Crystal clear yellow pale coloured pour with a film of white head. Aroma is faint apple, lager notes, some graonstore. Flavour is composed of light grains, some apple. Simple beer. Maybe a little straw. Solid noble hop bitterness. Palate is semi crisp and frothy. Semi drying finish. Passable.

hayduke (4755) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 8, 2015

3fourths (9107) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Notes from GABF. Can. Clear gold with a short white head. Saint lemon-pepper noble hops, mineral water / calcium, malt is faintly husky, corn-like, quiet but noticeable must / concrete off-notes. Medium-light bodied, light to moderate sweetness, chewy sugars are enjoyable, hops are overly bitter for balance, texture is lightly starchy. Finishes as cracked pepper, lemon, herbs, faint toasted grain, though not very complex, and there’s some coarseness to the carbonation. Still it’s a decent quaffer, slightly above average for American-made lager.

bytemesis (6595) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 22, 2015
Can. Pours clear golden, medium white head, dissipates to nice residual and lacing. Aroma is cracker, grass, a hint of citrus, spicy rye. Flavor is light sweet, medium bitter, definite rye spice on top of the grassy hops and biscuit malts. Light body, lingering bitterness.

RichardGretton (4628) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2015
Can. Golden beer with a light head and a bubbly body. The aroma is dry with a hint of fruitiness, and the flavour is very dry and hopped with some mellow yeastiness. Overall a nice well hopped Pilsner style beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

allmyvinyl (9336) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 22, 2015
16 flipping ounce can from Beers of Europe. Pours clear gold, thick white head. Aromas of lemon and lime, light malt. Taste is more lemon and lime, not much rye character, or lager character for that matter. Nice beer though!

marcus (9015) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 2, 2015
16 oz can from bhensonb. Pours clear golden with a thick white head and a light floral aroma. There is a bitter light malt flavor, heavy on the rye, and a dry finish. A refreshing drink with an unusually bitter touch for a pilsener.
