COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This light American Lager is brewed with a combination of domestic 6-row barley, corn, and a touch of hops from the Pacific Northwest. The pale straw appearance deceives the consumer as it presents a malty sweet background, with a crisp flavorful tone. Highly carbonated and light in body, this product lends itself to a highly thirst quenching profile. Hop variety: Galena and Mount Hood Hops OG: 8.5 Plato IBUs: 6 Color: 1.9 SRM

bhensonb (10342) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 30, 2011
Bottle from Vintage Cellar. Pours gold with a white head. Fairly bready aroma. Light body. Flavor is lightly malty and very lightly bitter. Seems like a pils ought to exceed 6 IBUs.

Drake (7926) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 25, 2009
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market, Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear golden amber with a thin fizzy head. Poor head retention and lacing. Aroma of corn, corn and more corn with a bit of toasty malts and grass. Taste is more prominent grassy notes with more corn. Balanced a bit better this time. A little acridity creeps in the finish. Thin-medium bodied. Decent for a light lager.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 29, 2009
Bottle shared by argo0: Pours a pale watery golden with a thin ring of white head. Has a bland grassy sugar corn nose. Starts with a light pale malty sweetness and some bland earthy hops before a very thin finish. Not much going on here, but it is drinkable at least.

Bottle. Straw colored with a short, fizzy white head. Sweet malt and corn in the nose. Sweet malt, cereal and corn taste as well. Light grassy notes. Body is light with fizzy, prickly carbonation. Ends with more sweet malt, corn syrup, and cereal grain with a touch of grassiness.

jgb9348 (4486) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 6, 2010
Crystal clear coloured body with a light soapy white head. Aroma of pale malt, fake sugars and a touch of cardboard - nothing really. Light-bodied; Watery, slightly malty flavour with a touch of fake sugars, some mild soap and a tiny bit of cardboard - bland as could be. Aftertaste, soap and cardboard dominate with a touch of citrus and pale malt. Overall, a pretty bad beer - even for the style this is showing nothing, and even though I’ve seen this just the one time, I wouldn’t recommend anyone buying it - even to try something new! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 15-April-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 05-June-2010.

nimbleprop (4196) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 3, 2009
Sampled at the DC Local tasting. Pours crystal clear yellow with a fizzy white head. Someone at the tasting remarked, "smells like rotting apples." I thought it smelled like a moldy beehive. Flavor is lightly sweet, stale grass, pears. Watery finish. Tastes a lot better than it smells.

radagast83 (4126) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JUL 17, 2010
12 oz bottle. Actually, I was surprised, that for a light beer this one ain’t too bad. Mind, touch of hops and malts. Certainly more drinkable than the typical light brews out there.
