Ocean82 (81) - Virginia, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Pours hazy golden straw with minimal effervescent head. Aromas of lemon, yeast, bread, and some hops. Smooth flavors of citrus, yeasty bread, and a hint of straw. Creamy and thicker mouthfeel than expected with lots of carbonation. I was expecting a lighter, grassier beer like Coors, but was pleasantly surprised. --- Cheers

Grima (2101) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - JUL 12, 2012
The beer in the glass is pale yellow with a soapy head. It smells musty-hoppy, sweetish grainy. Starts sourish malty, hoppy-musty and subtle bitter, slightly metallic also. The middle part is slight better, slightly sweet and grainy, flowery-hoppy. Goes into a floral-hoppy, slightly musty finish!

reebtogi (4242) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 21, 2012
500ml swingtop bottle labelled as Bavarian Lager pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a 2 finger white head that leaves very little lacing. Aroma is light fruits with grainy malts and grass. Taste is mild fruity and grainy malt sweetness with a grassy hop bitterness. Light bodied with some decent carbonation and a good mouthfeel. Quite a nice refreshing lager that is worthy of tasting.
