3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very clear golden with a medium sized well retained head that leaves good lacing on the glass.
The aroma is clean & lightly fruity with a little graininess and a little cracker. There is nothing at all offensive about the aroma of this beer, there isn’t anything really all that thrilling about it either but it’s nice smelling to say the least.
The beer is fairly dry and mildly bitter with a light herbal hop zing. The flavor is very clean but also very light.
This beer drank about as good as any light lager I’ve ever had.

On tap @ Olde Main. Pale yellow appearance with a white head. Light malty lager nose. Slightly grainy, pretty boring pale lager flavor.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 TAP: like Miller LIte, but slightly more bitter and maltier. Some banana on the nose. This has some elements apart from bad American macros, but not a lot.

Draft shaker at Olde Main. Light as any Bud in appearance, with a thin layer of foam. Light beer smell as expected. Taste does show some sufficient malts. I pick up some fruit impressions, but that may be from the leon beer I spilled on myself before this one.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
One of my favorites. I’d call it a medium beer, it’s not a light beer, but not a heavy dark either. Very pleasant, more of a grain than hops lager.

Tap at the brewpub. The body was pale yellow with a white head. The aroma was grainy with some dried grass. The taste was light bread crust with some lemon pudding. Decent for a pale lager.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had this one on draught at the brewpub in Ames, Iowa. Clear, medium yellow pour with a lacy white head, mild hoppiness, sweet with a sparkling grape juice nose. Artificial grape flavor permeates, mild, but actually pretty good for a "pale lager."

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the brew pub. Clear golden color with a thin bubbly white head that left a delicate lace on the glass. Aroma was of grassy hops and light cereal grain. The first taste was great with very fresh malty cereal grain note that lingered long and was accompanied by subdued spucy hops. Unfortunately the flavor gets lost with each additional sip. Dry on the tongue with a crisp finish. Decent for a pale lager.
