Average lager. Light head with some sweet notes. Hops jumps out, maybe too strongly. Otherwise touches of caramel and roasted malt. Too carbonated. Fruity.

Bottle. Bottled on 01/26/05 and batch #1664. Small white head that mostly diminished, fine-small sized bubbles, lacing was very sparse, carbonated, slightly cloudy, and a pale yellow hue. Aroma was malty, hoppy and sweet. Malty and sweet flavor. Tingly palate. Light body.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - JUL 25, 2005
Botte. Clear gold pour. Malty sweet aroma. More sweet malt and caramel and nutty flavors, and clean slightly-bitter finish. No skunky or off flavors in this bottle. Decent drinking lager imo.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2005
pours golden with decent head that quickly diminishes, good malt aroma, decent flavor a little metallic aftertaste, not a heavy body, drinkable.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 27, 2005
Bottle. Pale golden color with minimal head. Robust wet fruity aroma, mostly malts. Flavor is slightly comparable to Sam Adams lager, with a little less body. Crisp and balanced, a decent summertime lager.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2005
12 oz bottle obtained as a bonus from a trade with Firemoose15. Thanks Mel! Pours golden pale with a fair white head that laces the edge of the glass. Aroma is malty but a touch of skunk in my bottle.. Odd the bottle wasn’t green. Flavor is light malts, a touch of corn and some light honey and a touch of hops. On the palate this is light and carbonated. Refreshing on a summer day but nothing outstanding here

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 24, 2005
Blonde pale, peu de mousse de couleur blanche. Arômes et flaveurs rendent le plus intense hommage au diacetyl, monopolisant et gaspillant complètement l’expérience. Beurre en putréfaction, butterscotch…Extrêmement sucré en bouche, ne semble pas atténué correctement. Est-ce que le produit est supposé être comme ça ? ...probablement pas. Une vraie horreur! Lorsqu’une budweiser est meilleure, je me sauve en courant. Mole’s eye cafe, Brattleboro, 22 Mai 2005.

waeltzy (53) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2005
Not a terrible lager. Not quite what I expected for the price. Light amber to yellow color. Quite drinkable. Some basic hop flavor with a standard pour.

A decent lager tho a little watery. No harsh aftertaste, however. Drinkable, but nothing remarkable.
