solidfunk (7627) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 23, 2014
High drinkability quotient and even a little real flavor. Pours golden amber with decent head and lacing. Crisp barley finish with more hops than the average lager. Very good for a lager. Can I found in the fridge at work.

Lagerboy (1936) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
355 ml can. Clear bright golden yellow, healthy white lasting froth. Herbal lager malt aroma. Taste is not too sweet toasty pale lager malt, slightly floral and fruity, hints of citrus herb and spicy hop. Average carbonation, light bodied, lightly hopped. Better than most. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

One the best all-round New Belgium brews available. Highly drinkable with nice body and bite for a pale ale

akoeninger (675) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Clear golden color with foamy white head. Faint citrus aroma and pale malt. Crisp, clean taste and smell. Taste lightly hopped fruit, toasted malt, slightly fizzy finish. Could definitely drink a few of these. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

shadey (2079) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 23, 2014
12oz can. Pour color is darker than expected for a pale lager - a little on the orange side. Aroma indicates a nice sweetness. The flavor comes together nicely, with a really pleasant malt sweetness and just barely enough hops to clean up the finish. I was happily surprised by this one. Very sessionable, effortlessly drinkable. What American pale lager should be.
