3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A golden orange lager with a thin lacing white head. A good malt base with nice caramel notes in aroma. In mouth, a classic pils, czech in style, with lots of hops, biscuitty malts, and a nicely oily mouthfeel. Medium bodied. Tasted at the Union Square location, Nov. 2006.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Empire State Building.
Brewed with sweet corn, which was not a very good idea. Malty sweet, not much else in the way of flavour or aroma.

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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clean yellow incolor. A light, crisp, and refreshing lager, though not entirely delicious. Light sweet malts, bread, and just the faintest citric hops.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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
