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.

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) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - 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.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - FEB 9, 2008
Pours a slightly hazy gold with a dense, frothy, ivory head that laces nicely. The haze is coming from tons of super-fine suspended sediment. The nose is a muted, yet straightforward, sweet graininess with just a touch of grassy/floral hops in the background. Light-bodied and thin with a slick mouthfeel, it reveals fine carbonation at the swallow along with just a touch of a metallic note at the crisp, clean finish. Mildly sweet, grainy malt again with a light metallic note at the quick finish. Not a bad pale lager. i could easily see myself putting away a few of these on a hot summer day. It’s worth trying, if not just to remind yourself that not all pale lagers are yellow fizz-water.

Dark gold pour with large white head. Nose of sweetness and apple. Flavor had hints of honey, with the a tartness of a grannysmith apple. Very light body, and clean clean. Thanks to cbkschubert for this bottle.
