On draught at Hopworks. Light golden in color, with a surprising malted biscuit flavor.

Can. Pours a slightly hazy darker golden color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is a bit sweet for me, with some corn and grains coming off it. Taste actually is a bit bitter up front, with only a slightly sweet finish. Decently crisp, but I’m not a lager person.

EdInSaltLake (597) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Cherry-ish fruit; vegetable-like lager yeast; and toasty, sweet malt aroma. The malt flavor is sweet and lightly bready, and toasty in the finish. Spicy, floral hop flavor. Pretty firm bitterness.

vyvvy (3909) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 26, 2014
On tap at the brewpub - Pours pale clear yellow with an off-white head. The aroma has light graininess, pale malt and a touch of bread. It has a medium / light body with soft flowing carbonation. The flavor starts off grainy with pale malt, spiciness and grassy hops. The finish has a nice clean spicy saaz kick. Nice pils.

On tap at the BikeBar. Clear pale yellow pour with a white head. Nice balance with corn, malt, and hoppy bitterness. Average body and mouthfeel.

Draught @ Hopworks, Portland, OR

Clean, crisp and grassy lager. Pretty balanced.

onceblind (3966) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Clear pale gold under a big rocky white head. Bubbly with lots of floating carbonation. Aroma was standard lager blandness and cracker and dough. The flavor was nice and crisp and sweet with a pale cereal doughy tone and a semi sweet finish. Good enough, but not different enough from the big boys to justify it.

BEENJAMIN (290) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 8, 2014
On tap, pours clear yellow with a white head. Crisp grains and lager yeast for aroma. Flavors are refreshing, hops a subtle as they should be, I get a lot of fresh doughy grains. I like this as a summer pounder every year.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 25, 2014
Golden colour, mushroomy aroma like Chinese herbal liquor. Light body. Moderate bitterness, okay beer but too much emphasis on the caramels.

jjgmd (1377) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Can. Pours a bland golden yellow color. Nose is grainy. Lacks flavor, but for a lager ( which I detest at am alarmingly ) it is drinkable and thirst quenching without the grainy taste. It’s going down well on this hot Sunday Florida afternoon. Still prefers ales, but as a lager very drinkable. Quaff Score 6 / 10

zgaier (1334) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Pours a clear golden with a white head and aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is light, of malt, caramel, light hop and straw with a crisp finish. Light and refreshing, solid for the style
