COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic European style lager. We take the time to brew this beer as a true lager should be brewed. And it’s well worth the wait! You can enjoy the drinkability of this light-gold, refreshing beer with friends at the pub or at home after a long day. OG: 1048

OldGrowth (2622) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 21, 2004
Bottle, from Julio’s. Bottled 7/12/04. Good nose, biscuity,yeasty,toffee,fruity maybe apple or pear. Clear pale yellow gold color. Small head that faded quickly. Sweet flavors, same as aroma, but with a little bitterness. Thin body, kinda creamy. Clean drier finish. Some linguring fruity maltiness. Not bad. Easy drinking. A definate lawnmower.Give to someone who is ready to try more than the big three.

DocLock (7733) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2004
Pours deep gold with a medium, creamy, white head. Aroma of malt, hopcit, and slight pear. Tastes malty, with slight hops, citrus, and pear in the finish. Medium to light palate.

AdamSkillin (376) - High Bridge, New Jersey, USA - AUG 25, 2004
The hopping is perfect, giving just the right amount of refreshing aroma in the aftertaste. It finishes beautifully. A crisp clean lager that I’d drink any day. I’m perplexed by the existing ratings, don’t believe them. Try this beer or you will never know what you’re missing. Even among other craft brewed all malt beers, this stands out for its enjoyability, and isn’t that what beer is all about?

Suttree (5073) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 22, 2004
Dark gold, sloppy white head. Spicy, bready aroma. Clean and citrusy flavored, with a slightly herbal hop bite. Nice and easy to drink.

Mixed spice, dry and yeasty. No particular flavor to write home about. A weird beer.

jimhilt (2392) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 27, 2004
Pours with a one-finger bubbly white head that fades quickly leaving hardly any lace. Clear light amber color. Light-medium bodied. Nose is not skunky like the majors. Medium carbonation. Starts crisp and finishes hoppy, no a bad lager. $1.55 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits, Acton, Ma.

EKGoldings (526) - Radford, Virginia, USA - MAY 13, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2008 In the bottle only 3 weeks. Pours light gold dead clear, light head. Smell is modest, I get mainly green tea. Taste is full, lots of malt, balanced bitterness, modest hopping. Supposedly OG 1048 with 26 IBUs. I get a trace of dimethylsulfide in the nose.

sfontain (795) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 29, 2004
Batch #1505, bottled 3/18/2004. Well, I gotta say this is pretty sad stuff. I detect some nondescript fruitiness and just barely a caramel hint in the nose. It has a thin, white head and just a slightly darker urine color than, say, a Budweiser. In fact, it only tastes marginally better than Bud, too. It's fizzy like soda. There are some hops at the end but nothing to rave about whatsoever. I will try a few more OCs soon, but from what I recall of the ones I've had, this is the worst.

Clear yellow beer with white head. Nice biscuity aroma, which comes in the mouth too, with very balanced sgharp german hops. Good body fro a lager.
