spilledpint (346) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 7, 2012
12 oz. bottle from somewhere in Charleston. Ar: Aroma is light bread dough, moderate citrus, grassiness. Ap: 12 oz. bottle, shaker. Pours a lovely clear copper with a 1" frothy head that lasts quite a while. Good looking beer. T: Pretty moderate malt up front - notes of cereal and caramel. Finish packs a surprising wallop and is well bittered. P: Medium body, pretty assertive carbonation. Palate gives this a refreshing side. O: Packs more of a punch than I expected for a common (though I think I’ve only ever had one of these and that was a long time ago). Nice refreshing, well balanced beer.

beechner224 (689) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle. Amber color with white head. Aroma is of corn and mixed skunky malt. Light bodied. Taste is a bit bitter, lingers for a bit. Taste is better than the smell, but still not great.

jandd1983 (2619) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 3, 2014
It poured a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma was of wheat and malts. The taste was slightly bitter with a smooth finish.

I'm going to forget about this one as soon as I'm done typing. There's nothing at all memorable or special about this beer.

Westmeister (1788) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Pours slightly unclear golden orange with smaller white head. Smell is grains, slight fruitiness, mild grassy hops. Taste is bright grains, mild citrus and grass hops. Mild bitterness. Refreshing and not too shabby.

Lukaduke (2244) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Pours a medium copper color with to fingers of eggshell foam that sticks nicely. Aromas are cracker malt and citrus with some underlying grass. Palate has a nice front end that matches the nose with nice clean malt and a crisp citrus punch... but the beer bitters harshly on the mid to late palate and gets rubbery and abrasive on the finish. Halfway there but the lingering metallic rubbery flavors ruin it !

PlantCityJax (22) - Plant City, Florida, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Bottle. A nice "Carolina" (California) Common Lager. Has a nice citrus aroma and taste. Lingering finish but not in a bad way. Better than the I Pale Ale. -via BBapp

unclemattie (4222) - Georgia, USA - JUL 26, 2012
