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

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.

Lubiere (9865) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2004
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.

CapFlu (4493) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 13, 2004
(Draught) Lactic and hoppy nose. Pours a large white head and a golden body. Slight malt comes out in the flavour though it was on the thin and lifeless side of things.

raymow (811) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2004
Decent. Has a malty aroma and a pale golden coloring. Tastes like an average lager type. Refreshing and drinkable, but nothing all that remarkable.

surfmurf (85) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2004
Nice overall aroma and appearance. A bit weak in flavor reminded me of a lighter beer but without the aftertaste. A nice bite at the finish.

pivo (2556) - GERMANY - JAN 10, 2004
Light foul, farty nose; gold-yellow color; low head. Medium bodied malt base and not very hoppy but an OK balance.

TheBeerGod (5218) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JAN 4, 2004
Pours a browned yellow with a tall white head. Nose is odd. Not straight hops or malt dominated but some off aromas. The taste wasn't much better. Some weakened malt and hops along with a molded grain tongue. Finished with some of the same off flavors, albeit weakened during the aftertaste. OK at best.

slight hazy, pale golden color, thin white head. aroma is quite malty with some hops apparent in the background, lightly bready, cardboardy. cardboard in the flavor, some butter, feels a little dry. light mouthfeel. even a little bit of alcohol in the finish.

Weak nose. Honey gold color, little head. Weak hoppiness. "Good Session beer" Shelley

happy4hops (376) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - DEC 13, 2003
Bottled 9/25/03.Much like a thin version of their copper.Aroma of some very german malt and hops even.Smooth/full for a lager(do these guys make lagers?)More like a pils/helles(yet grainy & off).Better than many in this style.
