3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2009 On tap @ the Crescent Moon. Clear amber with a small off-white head, fading to a film before long. Aroma of some toasted malts and old citrus hops. The flavor is fairly biscuity with a little caramel malts. Some citrusy hops are around as well. The finish is semi-dry with bitterness around a 3. Light prickly carbonation with a light body. For a pale lager, this isn’t bad at all. Also, not bad for a flagship beer. If I lived in Omaha, though, I’d pick most Boulevard beers over this as a go-to beer, for probably less money as well.

I agree with Scott, I don’t get why the rating is so low... maybe they had it on tap??? Anyways, I like these guys, solid everyday beers at reasonable prices. About 400 yen, 4.5% bottle from Rakuten. It’s a lovely amber gold color, thick head and a mildly fruity aroma. Great flavor! The malts are balanced by some fruitiness and a dry finish. A beer that shows what a lager should be. I liked it. For a lager it is quite good.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2011 Amber color with a beige head. A malty caramel aroma. Flavor is malty with some caramel notes. I’m into comparing beers tonight so this is Yuengling like. Overall this is a pretty good beer for a session lager.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Yamaichi. Malty, caramel, very grassy, sour cabbage notes too. Very pretty russet/amber color. Light caramel, some sour tang and roughness in mid, and nice hop tinges in final. Thin body. Okay. Extremely grassy and full of flavor. A lager that goes a bit too far, maybe. The sourness kinds of detracts from the overall experience.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle -
Aroma - very hard to pick-up any major aromas. Light malty grain, a little sulfur and a touch of apple juice.
Appearance - solid gold body, clear with sporadic bubbles coming up from the bottle. Head starts out about 3/4" thick, disipates to just a splatch of nothing really.
Taste - flavor is really clean, not much to hang your hat on. Kinda minerally tasting, light grass and a touch of sweet malt
Palate - light bodied, light carbonation...has a seltzer water kinda feel to it
Overall - a really nice standard lager. Not sure where the "pre-prohibition" claim/name comes in to play. No noticeable flaws, easy to drink. Big thanks to pfoxyjohn for sending me this one!
