bsierra (213) - Vista, California, USA - OCT 16, 2008
Pours copper with a good sized soapy light tan head. The aroma is grainy pale malt, light butter and light spice. Medium body with lots of semi-soft carbonation. Starts wtih smooth malt, butter, some spice and light smooth fruitiness. If this had more of a grainy taste and less butteriness it would help tremendously. The finish adds a bit of spicy hops. An okay lager.

rugbydude05 (478) - Bridgewater, NJ, New Jersey, USA - SEP 6, 2008
Bottle, Queens. Pours a golden color, aroma is sweet with hints of caramel and fruit with some malt. Taste is rather sweet but with no one flavor standing out. Palate is very smooth with a refreshing aftertaste. Would like to try this one again.

Ibrew2or3 (7086) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 16, 2008
12oz bottle poured deep gold with copper hue and thin tan head. The mild aroma has sweet malts bordering on a cereal sensation along with hints of crystal malts, pine hops and faint floral hops. The taste is similar to the nose with initially mildly roasted malts moving into sweet cereal malts. Toward the finish a bit of pine hops surface and grows meekly in bitterness into the after taste as the cereal note re-doubles in strength.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 28, 2008
Pours a clear orange colour with a small white head. Scattered sticky lacing on the glass. lightly malted, with a semi sweet citrusy finish. Aroma smells like freshly rained on woodchips. kind of woodsy actually.

changeup45 (1717) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2008
Pours a light brown color topped with a thin head. Darker color than I was expecting. Fruity malt aroma with a malty flavor with caramel and some spices and a touch of hops mixed in. Bland, watery finish, almost non existant aftertaste leaves me wanting a bit more. Pretty boring beer but drinkable.

12 oz bottle. This beer pours an orange body with no head. The aroma is very light with notes of malt/ The taste is pretty smooth, light, with some malt. Decent brew.

RSRIZZO (1871) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 30, 2008
Aroma is a sweet malt scent. Color is a golden amber with a slight haze, good carbonation and a thin head. Taste is light and bitter. Starting with a light body it goes down crisp. Finish comes in with a sweet malt flavor that is chased by a mellow bitterness. After taste is a bit dry and reminds me a little of something like Bud. Its not bad, but it is boring and not something I would look for again.
