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.

Light grain aroma. Clear golden color with a small white head. Moderate sweet fruity and bitter beginning. Fades lightly in the finish.

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

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - FEB 24, 2005
Bottle. Smells like rotten fruit and pesticide. Tastes kind of flat, and vaguely like watered down lemon juice with some wheat. This is a bad, bad beer.

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.

jason (1676) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2007
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.

Rusty (1536) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 22, 2009
On tap at Oak Creek. Pours a golden color with a medium sided white head. Aroma is corn, malt, water. Flavor is much the same. Light and refreshing and well crafted for a pale lager.

Pours golden with egg white head. Aroma of rotting vegetables. Watery flavor. Almost no body.

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.

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.
