Fatehunter (1478) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Half finger of head. Lot of bubbles visible in the clear, golden body. Smell is a little honey and grain. Faint overall. A great taste. Sweet and bitter mix well. Good bitterness to finish. Crisp texture, moderate carbonation. A pretty good lager. A definite "go-to."

AgentAle (919) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 29, 2015
Aroma is basic malts, a bland hop profile with light sulphur notes. Taste is again bland malts with corn and rice adjunct. Dry basic bitterness on finish. Appearance is a clear gold with a thin pearl head that retains poorly.

tfontana (15) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 16, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2015 Aroma like cheap champagne or cereal--sometimes skunky. Appearance is a clear pale gold like apple juice with minimal fizzy head that appears for a nanosecond and then is gone. Light sweetness but indistinct. Thin, carbonated mouth feel with abrupt finish. A highly drinkable beer perfect really cold when it is very hot such as picnics or barbeques etc. A step up from American lagers. Time was this was the "good" beer. How far we’ve come...

shanoknowsfood (59) - Hawaii, USA - FEB 20, 2015
A bottle at my neighbor’s house. Not bad. But I had just drunk a Tommyknocker Nut Brown, so maybe that’s why this was so refreshing. But it was very smooth. Only slightly bitter.

This beer lacks any flavor at all and is very watered down - It’s even less flavorful than Coors Light :(

Pale golden color, clear; quickly dissipating, white head - aroma of grains, cereal, malt, some citrus hops - taste: slightly bitter - light body, rather thin texture, lively carbonation - short, grainy finish.

Chopper925 (262) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2015
Bottle. Clear, golden yellow color, small extremely fast diminishing white head. Aroma is somewhat resin, soapy sweet, candy. Taste is sweet in the beginning, lightly bitter to the end, somewhat light sour. Typical malty soapy aftertaste for this kind of beer. Thin texture, average fresh carbonation. It´s just like the Canadians, gentle and polite. ;-)

massingasetta (351) - München, GERMANY - JAN 5, 2015
I am getting more and more used to this type of international lager and it is a style that is appealing if the nuances of beer are to be left aside. Not a bad beer in this category, the aftertaste even has some voom to it.

GraffitiVandal (80) - Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 1, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2015 ENG: Yellow-goldish and clear in color with little bit of light tan head. Aroma is soury but balanced, a bit malty. Taste is poor with little hop. Maybe just a bit better than commercial beers like Budweiser or Molson (etc). ///~~~???~~~/// ///~~~???~~~/// ///~~~???~~~/// ///~~~???~~~/// PL: Kolor żółto-złoty, klarowny, piana jasna, niewielka. Aromaty zbalansowane, lekko kwaśne i słodkie. W smaku dość ubogie, może delikatnie chmielowe. Nieco lepsze niż koncerniaki typu Budweiser czy Molson, ale bez szału.

Draft poured into a twenty ounce Moosehead glass. A yellowish, golden color with white head that dissipates quickly. A good alternative to Coors, Miller, orBud.
