clong83 (285) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 3, 2010
Clean beer with a mellow flavor. A little dull, but soft on the palate and refreshing. Some yeast in the bottle. Not bad, but I won’t be spedning money on this again.

Clear, yellow, good head. Aroma is a bit vegetal. Taste is very malty and slightly sweet. Better than I thought it would be, but still not much going on.

bhensonb (10699) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 5, 2010
Bottle from the Co-op in Davis, CA. Pours a lightly hazy gold with a foamy white head. Sort of a lightly sweet odor with not much hop. Near medium body with mild carbonation. It’s clean. It has a smidge of grassy bitter. It’s harmless. Damning with faint praise.

marcus (6318) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 2, 2010
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a fluffy white head and a standard lager aroma. There is a decent pale malt flavor with light hop bitterness. Very refreshing, but otherwise unremarkable.

Sampled on 8/13/2010. This pale lager pours a light to medium orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is cereal, grainy and spicy. A medium to light bodied pale lager. The malts are cereal, grainy and a little sweet. The hops are herbal and spicy. Decent carbonation, and somewhat on the sweetish side. It’s definitely a pale lager, not much going on otherwise flavor wise. Nothing really bad tasting here, but it is much better cold. Mouthfeel is a touch thin. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

rougeau13 (1945) - Richmond, Texas, USA - AUG 26, 2010
Bottle. Decent pale lager. Tastes fairly standard with a little more malt and hops and flavor than most, but without chemical or skunk taste

StinkBall (157) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Refreshing light beer with a nice fruity clean taste. A little hop bitterness to the aftertaste is nice. A very smooth beer. Nice

Cuba (2) - Palo Alto, California, USA - JUL 16, 2010 does not count
This is a nice, refreshing summer beer. Has a nice crisp taste as soon as it hits the tongue followed a rather bitter after taste

I bought this at Corti Brothers in Sacramento...12 ounce bottle. It had a 96% for Pale Lagers Ratebeer shelf talker. Apparently, that is out of date. Oh well. Sweet, corn like, syrupy aroma. Some stale veggies and some grasses come through in the nose, too. Not overly pleasant. Transparent golden body with a decent white head that has really good head retention. This starts with a little bit of a grassy spiciness. Some fair noble hop character. A little malted huskiness is also in the middle. Lightly mineral later on. This is fairly drinkable. refreshing and light. It lacks the annoying sweetness that is so present in the aroma. Decent.
