COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Gold medal winner in the 2002 North American Brewers' Association competition, this richly gold-colored lager beer has a crisp hop note. It maintains its zest and balance of hops and malt from start to finish. It is a cold lagered and naturally carbonatedall-malt beer. It is very versatile beer that can be enjoyed alone or with nearly any type of food.

Tap at the restaurant. Nice golden color, dense white head. Mild citrus nose. good body...thick and slippery on teh palate. Good malt/hop balance with almost no bitterness. Very good and drinkable.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 9, 2009
Bottle via trade with Hellbilly. Pours an attractive gold, a touch cloudy with next to no head. Nose is kinda sweet, iced tea, malt. Mostly though, I get iced tea, not in a bad way, just in an omnipresent way. Taste is kinda similar. Virtually no bitterness, but there is enough hop character to balance out the sweetness in this one. This would a great canned beer, actually. Has some slipperiness in the mouthfeel, but overall thin. Not too shabby.

zathrus13 (1723) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - FEB 27, 2009
Bottle, thanks hellbilly. Pours slightly hazy gold, with a white head. Aroma is fruit and malt. Flavor is fruit, malt, and some hops. Would be a decent session beer.

Ungstrup (29849) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2009
Bottled. A golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with light notes of fruit, and so is the flavor, leading to a dry bitter finish. The body is a bit thin. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

Django (16) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2009
Bouteille brune 12 noces achetée à Phœnix. Liquide blond clair translucide. Nez malté avec une odeur végétale ou épicée (jus de tomate?). Peut-être un houblon américain. En bouche, idem au nez. Un peu différent pour une lager, mais pas mauvais. Peu de mousse et corps moyen. Pour ouvrir l’appétit.

clear golden orange pour with a vigorous white head which fades to a film. (my glass was too clean so the head didn’t stick around!) this smells very dry... citrus, strawberries (yep!), grass, light yeast and subtly toasted grains. the palate is crisp with a clean finish. the flavor shares the aroma’s profile... green strawberries, lemon, grain and grassy hops. there’s no lingering aftertaste and absolutely nothing ’off’. the medium body is smooth and contains the perfect amount of crisp carbonation.

great session beer... i drank this all day! 6/3/6/3/16/3.4

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 15, 2009
Bottle. Pours a medium gold with a one finger white head that fades into a persistent soap scum topper. Nose is sweet malt and lager hops. Taste is light corn syrup, honey and grassy hops. Medium mouth feel. Not too bad. Glad to see this brewery bottling more of their line-up.

patrick767 (3604) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 1, 2008
tap at the brewpub - Pours clear gold with a one finger white head. It has a mild, bready malt aroma. The flavor is mildly sweet, light malt with some good hops in there. It’s light but not watery and manages to be a pretty solid brew for what it is.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 29, 2008
Bottle courtesy of rustychiles. Pours gold with a white head. Smells of citrus, straw, some floral hints, a touch of dry malt. Tastes of caramel, a hint of pepper, some subtle citrus, hay. Nice dry finish.

nbutler11 (1267) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 2, 2008
Poured amber from the tap with a white head. Mildly bitter with the taste of hops. Couldn’t finish the sample. Not impressive at all for a previous medal winner.
