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.

On tap; poured a clear darker gold color with not much head. Aroma of sweet malt, corn and yeast. Flavor was pretty good for style; vanilla, yeast and sweet malt

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.

Fairly typical golden lager, with a mild, crisp hop aroma. Slightly sweet malty flavor with little hops. Light body and crisp carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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

Tap as part of seven dwarves flight. Pours golden with fluffy white head. Not much aromas to speak of. Tastes of hay, regular grass, citrus, vanilla, and hops. Pretty boring gold lager billed as 49er on menu fyi

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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!

Had this two times and it sure isn’t a Pilsner, despite their website description. The brewpub/grill listed it as a Munich style Helles lager. This one certainly doesn’t kill you with grassy hops! Standard golden color with a nice initial white head, that dissipated gradually, but provided solid lacing. The aroma was malty rich and the hops undetected. The flavor was sweet (maybe a bit too much) and malty grainy (some light honey flavors). Fairly heavy mouthfeel, sticky sweet. (Resampled on 5/2/06.)

Pours a nice clear golden-orangish color with a very light head that faded quickly. Has a light grainy, grassy aroma. Flavor leans toward the hoppy side with a touch of diacetyl. Leaves a slight bitter aftertaste. Light to medium body. An ok beer
