On tap at Karl Strauss. Clear light yellow with creamy white head. Bready malty aroma. Biscuity taste with a slight spice in the finish.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 4, 2006
Draught at Karl Strauss La Jolla: Golden color, no nose or flavor. Just a adjuncty lager with overtones of bland. 2.8% ABV? What’s the point..

dwyerpg (4827) - 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.

stouby (4041) - Holbæk, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2011
Bottle in Santa Barbara. Clear light golden with a white head. Aroma light malty (caramel) and hoppy (straw). Flavor light sweet and a dry lightly bitter finish. Light body.

kaser (4004) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 15, 2015
Golden pour from draft at the San Diego airport. White head. Boring. Does the job for the style. Wheat and stuff. Blah

IrishBoy (3944) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAR 11, 2007
Draft at Disney’s California Adventure; nose of grain and very light hops;clear gold with a small white head; flavor is just blah grains with some light citrus hop bitterness, better than macros, but the worst Strauss beer I’ve had!

patrick767 (3725) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 23, 2008
draft at brewpub - I don’t have much to say about this one. It’s about what I’d expect from a light pale lager that at least avoid adjuncts. It’s thin, sweet, and bland.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 5, 2006
Draught at Karl Strauss La Jolla. Clear golden color without much nose or flavor. I detected some sweet corn from time to time and it smelled a bit like fresh hay. Very watery. Bleh.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 26, 2006
On tap at the Old Columbia location. Bitterness is at 15 IBU’s and the lack of malt cannot support even this level of hops. Pale yellow with a white head. Lacks the nasty corn or rice adjunct aroma, but the body is just as meaningless as a BMC. For a Karl, this sucks.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2009
Bottle thanks to Snojerk321. Ah, the ubiquitous pale lager. Pours super pale yellow with a sticky fizy head that is a film. Nose is a bit skunky and sulfuric with a metallic tinge. Tastes like paper and hard water. Actually, not god awful.. Decent.
