Mjollnir (394) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 12, 2009
It’s not great, but it’s not terrible either. Pleasant aroma that doesn’t carry through. Above average for the style.

davidm (2050) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 10, 2009
Bottle. Not bad for a lager. Aroma has honey, and nuts. Flavour is sweet, with light bitterness. Thin body, and dry finish. Dark yellow, with a white head that disappears.

phaleslu (9017) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 20, 2009
Draft at the brewery. Pours clear gold with an eggshell head. Hops, malt, grain, and citrus on the nose. The flavor is sweet, grainy, and malty, with the hops and citrus rounding it out. Light bodied, and just a bit watery and smooth almost to the point of being flat. Not as much carbonation as most others of this style, and a dry finish. Slightly bitter.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - JUN 26, 2009
Bottle. Clear golden with a small, lively head. Aroma of grain and citrus hops. The flavour is grain, citrus and hops. A pretty standard lager but I don’t mind this one.

kiwibt (55) - , NEW ZEALAND - FEB 9, 2009
Bottle bb 09/09 Golden yellow with small head. Estery banna aroma, slight green apples with little hop. Estery banna flavour,sweet with little hop flavour or bitterness. Almost a watered down thin malt flavour. Overall the estery fermentation profile is a bit to over powering for the style.

UnholyBrewing (595) - Central Florida(Upper Hell), Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2008
...bottle. Poured a clear darkish gold with no head. No carbonation, and had hints of malt on the nose. Flavor was not good, had something that just wasn’t right about it. Maybe I had too high of an expectation, but this one just wasn’t right. Had miniscule hints of cereal and grain, but that’s about it. Watery, no body or flavor like there should be for a golden lager. Finished dry with a bad aftertaste, very flat tasting.

KiwiJonno (76) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 28, 2008
330mL Bottle. Faint aroma. Clear, bright golden beer with an average white head. Malty/honey taste. Not too bad.
