Looks good in the glass. Dark amber color with a decent head. Pretty average flavor and aroma. This would be a good winter time session lager.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2006 Had this one on my Northwest flight to Hawaii the other month. Poured an Amber color with a smaller head. Malty caramel tastes with a light hoppy finish. Re-rate from 12oz bottle. Poured a medium amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of grain, and caramel. Tastes of caramel, grain and some hops. Thin body.

Got this on a trip to minnesota, the only place i have ever seen it. With choices of only buds and millers, this was the best there(except for guiness). It has a nice reddish color, good taste with little head. This is an average beer but better tthan the competition at this bar.

Amber Colored...slightly fruity. Sweet Tasting. Middle of the Road Lager. Not Terrible, worth trying anyways.

Amber coloured. Caramel, fruity aroma. Taste is sweet, caramel, light hops. Decent. Thanks to slikwily. Note: Now that there is this "Pale Lager" deal, this should be classified as something else.

5000 (6180) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 23, 2004
Bottle pours light amber with a miniscule white dishwater like head.   Light carbonation and zero lacing.   Slightly malty aroma, notes of buttered toast and sour fruit.   Very uneventful on the flavor, slightly bready and thats it.   Medium bodied, mediocre mouthfeel.   Not all that impressing.   Thanks goes out to BierBauch for the trade!

consumed from keg in plastic glass at a party... plenty of hops, but not much body and not much of a nice malty/grainy base which i like in my beers, but cup for cup, i'd rather be swigging this than the usual party keg beers...

Braudog (5576) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2004
Drank from a can aboard Northwest Airlines. Presented with a good amber hue and nice head. But it has that airy aroma of a macro. At first I didn't distinguish much flavor, but a tinge of hop bitterness saved it from awfulness. Towards the end of the glass, as it warmed, more of a decent character and flavor shone through, but still an average beer.

Decent beer with no adjuncts. Nice clear amber beer with a large rapidly diminishing off white head. Cr3eamy moutfeel and nice balance of malt with the lightly bitter hopp finish. Decent balance.
