i started out thinking "ok, it’s a light lager, but i can smell it, so it’s not going to be too boring." I was wrong. bit of a nose, that promises more than taste delivers. absolutely no aftertaste, or body. hint of carbonation, no head. I had to spill the last 1/3 of the glass.

I am going to be a little biased in my rating of this beer, as it was my first non-macro beer. Its not great, but it is a beer my Bud loving fishing buddy will drink, so I don’t have to drink Bud.
Light gold color, medium head. A light bodied lager style beer. Malts are slightly sweet and there is some hop bite. Nice smooth taste. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

An early ’micro?’ It could be way worse. I can’t say that I drink it often, but if I was somewhere and it was this or ’pure macros,’ I’d sure be happy to see it.

slightly less bright yellow than a corona with a medium sized head that fades down to nothing. Smells like water with a faint scent of sweetness thrown in. Has a watered-down, honey-like sweetness up front that fades into a kind of pool-water like flavor. (Yeah, that does sound gross.) I guess you could say it is better than a bud, miller, coors, but this beer kind of pisses me off. It is a bad beer that seems like the brewers try to dress with some flavor to gain acceptance in the micro world. This beer is pretty bad.

This is a nice beer but not a good German brew hence the Tumwater location.

Its cheap. Thats the only reason I know why to buy this beer. Enough malt and hops to let you know its not just fizzy yellow water, but not enough to be enjoyable. Way too carbonated.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2004 Another decent, but not great beer. The color and aroma are pleasant the taste is decent for a while but the aftertaste as many have mentioned is awful. The kick i was looking for just wasnt there.
