COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A light, clean, crisp lager. Reminiscent of beers brewed in the early years of Seattle. Flavorful, yet light in alcohol.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 1, 2004
Draught @ Petes Pizza & Calzone poured pale straw, small frothy white head, light carbonation, with semi decent lacing.   Very light malt aroma.   Even lighter malt & oat taste.   Finish was uneventful, as expected.   Not bad, but nothing to set it apart from others either.

Draft at Beveridge Place Pub. Pours crystal clear light golden with a dense and creamy but short-lived platinum blonde head. Nice nutty and wet-grass-y nose. Creamy light body, carb is out of the way. Lemon, wet grass, wet leaves, and nuts on the mid-palate. Long nutty finish.

riversideAK (5626) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 17, 2008
Pours light gold with a nice head. Aroma of pale bready malts, a little sweetness. Flavors of light sweet malt, bread, with a grassy crispness and perhaps a little metallic note. A great thirst quencher with decent flavor and a crisp finish. Nice fresh lager.

Tap@The Jolly Roger. OK lager i suppose, German style? Malty sweet, with some herbal sort of hops, but fairly tame.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Clear yellow, light head & lacing. The aroma is crisp with some hops & malts. The flavor has decent toasty malt with some light hops. Finishes with some watery malt.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 24, 2008
On draught at the Jolly Roger brewery/taproom grill in suburban Seattle, WA. Pours a clear golden pale brew with a fast dissolving white head that started large and then that leaves behind a thin film and white ring with some spotty lacing. Aroma of golden grain malt, citrus zest, with a touch of mild yeast. Taste is light to medium bodied, lightly carbonated with flavors of golden grain malt, some lemon zest, and a touch of Ivory soap. Finish is mildly bitter with some citrus zest and a pale ale hop aftertaste.

5oz Taster - Jolly Roger Taproom - Seattle, WA
Aroma – Strong malt aroma very light with the hops.
Appearance – Golden in color, thin head and clear.
Flavor – Deep malt flavor with a silk flavor for that deep malt liquor flavor.
Palate – Good Mouthfeel, nice texture with a dry finish.
Overall – This was a very nice lager with some good flavors.

dwyerpg (4656) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 3, 2009
A little soapy, somewhat hoppy aroma for a lager. This is a pretty darn good lager. A lot of hops in the finish. I actually prefer this to the pils.

maxwelldeux (3807) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Draught at WA Brewers Festival, 2014. Pours a slightly hazy golden color. Nose has the requisite corn elements to it, as well as a bit of grass, which was a nice surprise. Taste has a lot of corn and grains, and seems very much like an average lager. Drinkable, but not much to it.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 16, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours bright yellow with a white head. No aroma to speak of. The beer is well made with no mistakes. Quick and clean palate. Seems more like a pilsner to me. For what is is, it is a delicious beer that would pair well with fish.
