Pours a golden yellow. Aromas of grass, malts, and a touch of fruit. Flavor is grainy with a touch of hops. Still better than most american pale lagers.

Brewers should not get away with their labelling these beers as being "Premium".
It’s not bad but then isn’t good (heard that before?).
Pale yellow, a slight head, some fruitiness (grapes?).
Drinkable, like Oranjeboom Lager, but with the above-mentioned slightly fruity quality.
O.K. Session stuff.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 0z bomber , brewed in Saratoga Springs NY.
Attractive label with a lovelly kingfisher ( of course) to the fore.
A perfectly good looking lager, darker than American macros so its a light ,clear golden brew with a largish tight bubbly white head.
The smell was not too attractive though, there are hops but there is an off putting "detergent" aroma., soapy.
Fortunatlly no soap in the taste again its a rather pleasant lager well balanced and smooth, you can taste the hops and the malts ,with a small sign of the adjunt( corn syrup) taste of US macros.
Nice smooth, full mouthfeel.
Good easy drinking stuff.
I used to drin this all the time in Atlanta in my fav Indian in Little Fives, I was impressed then, though I’m far from impressed NOW its still a good lager IMO

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours yellow with a fizzy fully receding head. Very mild aroma is grassy hops,doesn’t smell skunked. Taste is sweet cereal grain, slight metallic note. Mouthfeel is thin-bodied with medium carbonation. Less skunky and more mellow than the average green bottle. There might be adjuncts in here, but at least they are well hidden.

Skunky. It had a think oily taste with a skunky smell. It looked good enough but as soon as I opened the bottle I was afraid that it would taste like it smelled.
