riversideAK (6040) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 12, 2007
Itís a light pale lager, so there really is not much aroma, but it does smell like a beer and not like an adjunct filled BMC. The light golden appearance is characteristic of the style. Flavor is slight breadiness, a little hop crispness, and some carbonated water. Not the most complex brew obviously but way better than crappy mass produced pale lagers.

Draught at Karl Strauss La Jolla: Golden color, no nose or flavor. Just a adjuncty lager with overtones of bland. 2.8% ABV? Whatís the point..

dwyerpg (5342) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 3, 2008
No aroma. Light color. Very thin and ricy, not so good. Has a small bite at the end that keeps it interesting. Very smooh. I would maybe rather drink this than the Woodie Gold.

patrick767 (3918) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 23, 2008
draft at brewpub - I donít have much to say about this one. Itís about what Iíd expect from a light pale lager that at least avoid adjuncts. Itís thin, sweet, and bland.
