They are serious about the aroma and appearance for a lager. If I new nothing about beer this could easily pass for an ale. Lots of flavor, no metallic-ness. Fruit flavors and a solid malt really support this beer. I see that I am about to hit a Pilsner with a 3, which should put it in the top 90%, but as a beverage, it all adds up. I’m confused.

bottle. Pale golden with one finger head. The redeeming feature of this is that it’s cheap. It’s your basic crap lager. Light grassy body with slight hops.

Bottle from pikapp327. Light pour with a small head. Little to no aroma or taste. Kinda gross and kinda grainy. Weird finish.

UDBeernut (1478) - Near Buffalo, New York, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Straw gold pour, visible carbonation. Clean nose, mild grass. Taste is balanced, I guess the best description is not offensive because it's pretty bland with some grass on the finish. Light body, slam able.

From the 12 fl.oz bottle with a best by date of 07/17/14. The pour is yellow to golden yellow with a quick lasting white fizzy head. The aroma is of pale malts, biscuit, butter, and grass. The body is light. The taste begins with the malty and buttery character I mentioned with a rather vibrant crisp, clean hop bite at the finish. Not bad.

scotchzombie (286) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Pours classic lager gold with a reasonable soapy white head that settles to a rim and yeasty coat. Aroma is pale malts, corn and biscuits. Taste is toasted malt and hay - and corn-sweet - with a moderate noble hop finish and some bitterness lingering. Pretty drinkable - a few would do. Nothing memorable, but a fairly enjoyable lager. This is what Bud/Miller/Coors should be. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrSilverworm (5025) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2013
12oz bottle, from my local Trader Joe’s for $1. Best before 02/13/14. Labeled 5%. Clear golden yellow color. Thin white head, with good retention. Decent rows and ridges of lace. Medium body. Kind of crisp but stronger, sharper carbonation. Lightly sticky in the finish. Lightly tart, light sour, bigger bitter taste. Light acidic in the finish. Light lemon, corn flavor. Kind of peppery. Lightly skunky. Sort of biting. Not a great lager.

Flute. Notes of hay and thats about it. Pale clear yellow, some lacing, minimal head. Mainly tastes of hay. Didn’t care how it foams up in your mouth. It will make a good throw down beer.

Aroma: Caramel and bready malt aromas with hints of yeast. Appearance: Clear gold with rich tan head. Taste: Light sweetness straight through. Palate: Light body, average carbonation, sweet yeasty finish, slick texture Overall: It’s decent, but too sweet. The yeast is a bit overwhelming.
