Ughsmash (7159) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 10, 2007
Bottled. Poured clear medium golden with a short cap of white head that receded to a thin pool rather quickly. The aroma picked up sweet pale and perhaps caramel malts along with a touch of wheat and some honey. The flavor had pale malts and corn.. an ugly overriding darker sweetness made this not so good.. sharper citrus notes with more corn stick to the edges of the palate. Lighter-bodied with ugly, tacky notes in all the wrong places.. not very good.

I tried this a long time ago and don’t have much written down besides that it was much sweeter than I expected.

Braudog (5841) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2005
Surprisingly, this is a medium amber with a good solid head and an active tilt. Although it delivers the expected corn starchiness, it’s also has much richer caramel malt basis than I expected, with an apple tinge. Better than I could have hoped for.

heemer77 (5104) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 7, 2006
Medium gold body with a little haze. The head is white. The aroma is sweet with glazed donuts and some cooked caramelized carrots. The taste is sweet potatoes with some honey and a little bit of celery spice in the finish. A decen tlager, but a little sweet overall.

Strykzone (5009) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 5, 2006
UPDATED: APR 12, 2009 Nice medium dark in color and is much darker than most pale lagers. Easy drinking and smooth describe it. There is not a lot going on here which is typical of the style. Some decent caramel flavor.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 12, 2005
Dark golden color with a soft airy white candle looking head. Aromas of grape peels with perhaps a touch of herbal hops. Sweet start in the flavors with corn grits and raisins. A hint of malt in the finish, but the body still shudders from the first taste. Light with quite a bit of spritz of the palate. I should have passed on this.

jgb9348 (4782) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 25, 2007
Deep amber coloured body (not golden at all) with no head at all to speak of. Aroma of pale malt, lemons, wheat, caster sugar and even some hops! Light-bodied; Sharp flavour of malt up front fading to some cardboard and light citrus flavours as well. Aftertaste is a bit nicer with some sugars and malt most noticeable. Overall, not a horrible beer and one even maybe worth trying for the style. I agree that it is better than the BMC products around, but nothing more than just another lager. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Spirit Shop in Norman, Oklahoma on 24-April-2007.

ChainGangGuy (4392) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 30, 2009
Appearance: Pours a clear, orange-hued body with no more than a thin ring of white bubbles on top. Swirl - swirl - nothin’. Smell: Sweetish, lightly bready nose with a vague estery fruit hint and touch of floral European hops. Taste: Upfront is a sweetish, stale bready (bordering on grainy) taste. Touch of fruit. Faintly floral, lightly spicy hops, though the bitterness is a bit lacking, leaving you with a semi-dry finish and some bleak flavors lingering into the aftertaste. You’re lifeless and a tad unclean, Lemp. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Though it paired well with the Johnny Cash song "Ring of Fire", it’s not one to stand on its own really. Sadly, Lemp is one to skip. I dare say it’d even come up short when compared to some of the macro lagers.

New at my beerstore. Cool name, cool label. America’s first lager, I wonder how true that is? Slightly darker than pale yellow in appearance. Tea froth head. No real menacing attributes, rather friendly and drinkable. Aroma has some metallic hints. Acceptable pale lager for the most part. Probably should be under the premium lager style.
