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.

Thanks to maniac for this one. Medium gold, touch of bronze, slight head. Aroma lightly of bread with a bit of oat. Oat, cereal, faint floral hops on a slightly watery finish. Unremarkable.

auerbrau (3166) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 24, 2007
12 oz Bottle. Particular smell of apple instant oatmeal. Curt and to the point. A hazed deep gold pours out, with a sparse bubble soap foam tinted banana. Flavor is a unique bready and peachy foam. The beer is expanding from its shake up, but still carries gentle wheats, light fusili pasta, and toothy apple pucker. Shy of any off flavors, however these flavors the beer has are a bit peculiar, however enjoyable. There’s some off hexane or Styrofoam on the back end, but it’s not too interrupting. Hops could play more. Pretty nice. Thanks Rudy!

Bottle. Thanks to cbkschubert. Poured a hazy golden body with huge head. Grainy aroma, crisp. Flavor is light grain, light malt, slightly bitter. Not bad for a pale lager.

5000 (6241) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 30, 2007
Bottle: Fiery straw, moderate sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Musty underarm grainy aroma, slight sock, a little bit of vegetable, toss in some wet cardboard, and pizza dough.   Thin malt flavor, slightly grassy, not so bad on the tongue as on the nose.   Very thin tho, finishes quick, too watery.   Only very pale malts on this one, and even then they are so very light.   Nothing I would have again.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 23, 2007
Bottle courtesy of cbkschubert: Pours a transparent orange bronze with a thin, wispy-lacing white head. Grainy pale malty aroma has some light strawberry and caramel notes. Body starts slightly thin with some grainy pale malty flavor and a touch of floral noble hops and lager yeast character. Slightly better than most pale lagers, but still pretty bland.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2013 Had again and had to up the score. Nothing special still, but if treated properly is light and refreshing. Original score. 2.3 Smell skind of bad. Different, very creamy. Not anything that comes off as real hoppy or malty about this. Unfortunately, it seems to me to have that slight butter note coming through, like right before it’ll go bad. This is sort of a preemptory score.

hopdog (8867) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2006
12oz bottle acquired in trade with cbkschubert (thanks!). Poured a lighter and clear orangish color with a small sized white head. Aromas of some grain, toasted malts, and light grass. Tastes of grains, light citurs, and I was getting light caramel. Thin and watery.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 13, 2006
Pours a misty bronze color, light head and lacing. The nose is sweet and biscuity with a lightly floral hop note, a touch of bread and malt with just a fluff of huskyness. The flavor is nice and creamy, balanced body, moderate mouthfeel for the style and finishes on a lightly bitter tail. Nutty finish and a bit sweet overall, but tasty!

IrishBoy (3824) - Bakersfield, California, USA - SEP 27, 2006
Bottle from cbkschubert; Thanks Craig; Cap really hissed as I opened this; Nose came out as light but definate lemon aroma, not the more usual citrusy one, with some light malt in the background; gold with a big white head; flavor had a light lemony malt taste, very different from any of the 38 other pale lagers I’ve rated.
