Bamaboy1975 (242) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - APR 6, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Enjoyed at home. A: Hazy golden color with a medium-size white head, which dissipated rather quickly. S: Sweet-smelling with hints of citrus (lemon) and sweeter malts and a hint of toasty-ness. Perhaps some caramel and/or brown sugar as well. Aroma is pleasant, but not overwhelming. T: Sweet and bready on impact, with some of the citrus flavors emerging in the end for a pleasant taste experience. Subtle aftertaste that resembles the front end -- a sweet maltiness. M: Light body and sufficient carbonation. Unremarkable. O: Solid, if somewhat mediocre, lager. Easily drinkable with limited after-taste, and the light body would allow for easy enjoyment with a variety of foods. Definitely not an irresistible beer, but certainly not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bierkrug (2131) - Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, GERMANY - MAY 21, 2014
355 ml bottle in Vienna, VA. Pours a light amber color with a thin white head. Hoppy pine and malt aroma followed by a nutty flavor. Palate is a crisp hoppy finish. A bit too spicy for style.

Elwood (3027) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a clear gold with a huge white head. Odd nose with notes of grain and a hint of furniture polish. There have to be some noble hops in there. There is a weird grassiness, lemon, and grain notes. Light body with plenty of carbonation. Eh, not too bad.

BrettTaylor (451) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Poured from bottle to plastic cup at a local minor league game. Poured a slightly hazy yellow with small head, no lacing. Aroma was a bit bready, but fairly minimal. Taste was crisp, but lacked much in flavor. I don’t know that I would ever drink this again.

From the tap came a clear golden brew with a thin white head. Lightly malty/hop aroma. Medium/light bodied with a nice balance of malt and hops.

Emeister84 (862) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 21, 2013
Aromas of bready malts and faint, grassy hops. Gold-copper with a fully fading, white head. Earthy and biscuity. Light, cleansing carbonation, and with a slightly sweet, bready finish.

Not much to the scent light hops kinda grainy. White foamy head and golden body. Dry yeasty grain flavor. Crisp on palate.

Poured into a pint glass. 4.0 A: Crystal clear medium yellow color. Despite this not being bottle conditioned, there’s a fuck ton of carbonation in this and I needed a few pours to get a full glass. Why would they carb it this much. Big foamy white head. Retention is pretty good and lots of lacing is left. 3.5 S: Fairly potent grassy and spicy hoppiness. Grainy malts with a moderate sweetness. A touch of wort-iness to this as well. Could be a tad cleaner, but overall smells good. 4.0 T: The taste has a good amount of hops in it as well. Grassy, spicy, and earthy in that order. Low bitterness. Grainy malts with a light sweetness and a lot cleaner than the nose suggested. Very nice. 3.5 M: Lighter medium to medium body. A bit overcarbonated, but not too much. Lightly creamy and smooth enough. 4.0 D: Solid beer. ’Nuff said. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 08-06-2012 23:21:00

Bottle. Barley malt and hay aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet barley malt and moderately bitter hay hops flavor. Very nice beer.

maxwelldeux (3452) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Not as bad as I thought it would be. Very clean and crisp, and has none of the skunky flavor that a lot of cheap lagers have. Pours golden with a small-to-moderate head. Effectively zero smell.
