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. Itís clean. It has a smidge of grassy bitter. Itís harmless. Damning with faint praise.

GT2 (8176) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAY 16, 2011
355mL thanks to argo0. Finally- a Tibet beer! The pour is a bright straw with heavy carbonation and a fizzy, temporary head. Nose is champagne like with cheap white wine. Much better than most pale lagers. Taste is metallic, grainy, light cereal but really not much there to like or dislike besides lemon Perrier. Big carbonation distracts. Not bad.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2011
12 ounce bottle courtesy of Butters at the 14th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering, 3/19/11. Pours a hazy pale golden color with a medium creamy white head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of grain, corn, mushrooms and a musty note. The taste is grant, peach-like fruit notes and some dusty, musty notes. Thin-medium bodied. Weird beer.

3fourths (7859) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 4, 2010
thanks bullzeye! carefully poured from a wicker basket - mapwhoring at itís finest... color is soft yellow with a slight haze and a billowy medium-bubbled white head. nose is surprisingly soft and floral with some dust/cement basement must and dried corn leaves and other assorted dried or toasted grains/plants. somebody said corn pudding but I canít make that happen even with how suggestible I am. lightly crisp, lightly dry - saaz hops? didnít know but guess it makes sense. mostly soft, some sort of rice flavor noticed at times but for the most part itís inoffensive and easy to like as simple as it is.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Bottle shared by argo0: Pours a clear pale golden with a stringy-lacing off-white head. Has a semi-sweet grainy malty nose with a touch of corn. Starts with a mild corn sweetness with some grassy bitterness before a drier slightly peppery finish. Very bland and not something Iíd even want to drink on a hot day. At least itís not infected.

DruncanVeasey (7098) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2012
Bottle@Sandy Lane, CA, 12/08/12. Pale and misted with a fine, dissipating foam. A little pine shaving and dried apricot; thin raffia-like malts, strange oak. Dried grass aroma. Not especially adjunct-laden or refreshing. Reasonable.
