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.

Poured a hazy gold with a tremendous white head. The aroma was strongly phenolic with notes of band-aid and some malt. Mildly tart. Hint of hops at the end.

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.

Gregis (1279) - 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.

Ungstrup (28448) - 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.

December 2011. Sampled at the brewpub in Sedona. Golden yellow with a white head. Hops, malt, yeast and grassy notes. A bit high on the carbonation, and flavors are muted,

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.

hopdog (8529) - 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.
