KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JAN 9, 2012
Bottle. Poured a medium golden yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) white fizzy head that dissipated rapidly leaving a thin layer of foam lying on top, but did not have any good lacing to speak of. The aroma was very mild of a grain malt, herbal hops and an earthy yeast with just a hint of caramel. The taste was mildly sweet with a hint of caramel at first and then became very lightly hoppy towards the end. The flavor lasted only a short while after the swallow with not much of an aftertaste. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a fizzy carbonation. Overall a light tasting beer with a mild hop finish. Great if you want to have more than a few and do not want to feel blotted.

Transfer from BA review on 9-4-12- Poured from bomber into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a medium golden color with a gigantic white head. The head was huge but faded fast, so the pour had to take place in multiple step additions. After fading completly the head left only a very light spotty lacing. Smell – The smell is light and is of a bready an lighter sweet fruit/veg aromas of a apple and corn. Taste – The taste begins of bread and caramel malt sweetness. Soon flavors of a lighter citrus nature come to the tongue. Mixed with the citrus are some flavors of an earthy taste. These flavors diminish the caramel flavor as the taste advances but a sweet corn and malty flavor takes it place. .In the end, a pleasant sweeter (for a lager) and very lightly bittered taste is left on the tongue. Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the lower and thinner side with a very high level of carbonation. The carbonation and body are both very good for the brew and make it quite refreshing and easy drinking. Overall – Not too bad. A bit on the sweeter side for a lager, but refreshing and very easy drinking none the less. It has nice flavor transitions and a nice feel, which when coupled with the lighter and more refreshing body make for a good session beer.

Bierkrug (2130) - - 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 (3336) - 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 (726) - 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.
