Spab (2453) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2008
Draught at Empire St. Building location. Pours a clear gold with white head. Slight lacing. Corn and slight sweet malts in the aroma. Taste is also fairly sweet. Light body with a slight bitter finish. Nothing to get too excited about.

Capa (2031) - Manama, BAHRAIN - AUG 11, 2008
Clean yellow incolor. A light, crisp, and refreshing lager, though not entirely delicious. Light sweet malts, bread, and just the faintest citric hops.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Part of the sampler at the bar. Clear yellow with a white head. Light hop and malt flavor. Nothing special though, very plain.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2008
A Sim rate (tap at Heartland Brewery, Union Square): Nothing, nothing there. It could be worse. It could smell like lager. Looks like lager with a bit of lace. Surprisingly nice flavour. I only say that because I’m not a lager-lover, but could tolerate this. Such sweetly-subtle malts. Delightful. Almost want to give it a ’7’. Sweet, malty finish that’s delightful.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 27, 2008
Part of a Seasonal Sampler at the Chophouse location. Clear yellow, white head. Aroma is malty and slightly hoppy. Flavor is super wheaty. Nothing special here.

rugbydude05 (478) - Bridgewater, NJ, New Jersey, USA - APR 12, 2008
5 oz sampler, draught at Union Square. Pours a light golden color with minimal aroma. Taste is very refreshing and malty and no evidence of hops. Minimally sweet. Palate is smooth and overall a decent especially considering its a pale lager. Very subltle and not an overpowering taste.

oberabcbbsok (687) - Hoboken, BELGIUM - APR 5, 2008
On my paper the commercial description is different: Crisp and smooth, our golden lager is crafted from midwestern malts and flaked sweet corn. This is our most refreshing beer, with ma mellow maltiness and a light clean finish. For me nothing special, tasted in NYC in 2004

TBone (12815) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 12, 2008
Draught@Heartland Pub, Union Square, NYC
Golden color, small white head. Malty, a bit caramelly and citrusy nose. Light palate. Light citrusy notes, pale malts. Quickly fading aftertaste. Ok craft "bulk" lager, but no need for another sample.

rlgk (11026) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - MAR 3, 2008
Draught at the Heartland Pub, Times Square, NYC. Golden color, creamy offwhite head. Malty aroma with some toffee. Malty, fruity and bitter hop flavor. Grassy bitter finish.

Gorbalev (2927) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2008
On tap at the Empire State Building location. Corny (no really) cloyingly sweet aroma. Medium yellow, small white head. taste is again too sweet, very bland, and not enjoyable at all. Ugh, and this was after the really solid light beer to start.
