COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A blend of light American pilsner malt, wheat malt and white corn make a lager of exceptional smoothness, with a very light colour.

12 oz brown bottle from Corti Brothers. What a coincidence! It smells a bit of wet dog! Certainly the expected grain and hop are absent. The color is brassy gold, and the white head promptly ringed. Medium bodied, sharp carbonation. The instant start is somewhat biscuit, moves on to a hint of roast malt. The bitter is reminiscent of one of the older, better, American lagers that had decent amounts of hop. Olympia is the only one I can remember, and this is probably more pleasing. The finish is crisp, clean, not un-dry, and has an amount of hop for the mouth that is so much more than macro lagers from America. Maybe this is a memorial to the days before our lagers were destroyed by the advent of cheap shipping. (Got nothing against cheap shipping; helps get the craft brews closer to me). Best American pale lager Iíve had recently.

Bottle. Clear yellow with a white head. Toasted malt and sulfur aroma. More toasted malt in the flavor with a clean dry finish. Just OK.

Take the ability to quaff large amounts of this, and itís a pretty good beer. While there isnít anything horribly wrong with the beer, thereís nothing really outstanding either. I suppose thatís a good thing, no? A malty aroma with hints of corn. Typical golden lager color with a decent head. Not much in terms of flavor with a clean finish. Drinkable, yes definitely. Outstanding, no.

Light hazy yellow with a thick white head. Peppery malt aroma. Crisp malt taste, fresh from the brewerís tank, biscuitty, and strong yeast notes. Light bodied. On tap at brewery, August 2005.

Very pale gold color. Small head. Aroma is malty. A light bodied lager. Malts are wheaty, there is a slight banana and clove thing going on here. Hops are a little citrusy, mild of course, but definitely present. A mild beer, not a lot of flavor, but nothing really objectionable or bad. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
