Skyview (5477) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Pcked up single 12-oz bottle from Brennan’s Country Farm Market in Brookfield, WI. Pours a clear pale golden amber brew with a fast dissolving white head that almost dissipates clean. Aroma of light multi-grain malt, some gassy hops, and some white bread yeast. Taste is light to medium bodied, well-carbonated, with a white bread and grassy hop flavor. Finish is slightly watery, a mild bitterness, with a light bread aftertaste. Nothing out of the ordinary, just a simple lager beer.

ChainGangGuy (4755) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 13, 2007
Appearance: Pours a faint, light copper body with a thin, white ring of bubbles. Smell: Weak, displeasing aroma of pale malts with a touch of mustiness and floral hops. Taste: Thin, sweet pale malt flavor. Faint hint of caramel. The floral hops and the bitterness they kindly impart are definitely on the lighter side of things. Finishes watery. Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Nothing to see here, folks.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 19, 2007
Pours a lightly effervescent golden bronze with a frothy clingy-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet pale grainy malt and a touch of earthy hops. Body starts fairly standard for the style with a hint of pale malty sweetness and some mild bittering hops. Pretty smooth, but uninteresting.

kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - JUL 29, 2007
Pours from the bottle to a nice copper color, but thin white head sdissipates quickly and leaves no lacing. Faint hoppy, grainy aroma truns quickly to a stale scent. Mouthfeel is bland and taste is absent, all leading to a short, stale, dry finish. This is a step above the BMC lagers...but not much. Unfortunately, this would not even make a good session beer.

Pours deep copper. Aroma is malt & bread. More hops than I thought there would be. Better than expected.

Ughsmash (7507) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 18, 2007
Bottled. Poured clear orangey-golden with a tall, rocky cap of white head. Aroma was of sweet bready malts with dusty floral and sweet grains... quite pleasant. Flavor almost held serve, but picked up a soapy component.. sweet bready base with sufficient floral bitterness. Lighter-bodied, but never struck me as watery.. crisp and refreshing. Nice one.

Golden-amber with thin head. Graniy aroma. Balanced with mild sweet fruity malts and faint hops. Smooth, refreshing, & dry.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - APR 7, 2007
Nice amber color,small off white head that had a decent hangtime then faded slowly to leave a little behind.The aroma was malty with a slight grainy side and a hint of hops.The flavor was not great but decent enough.Nice light malty side some hints of caramel and the hops are a bit on the light side but decent enough to be noticed.Pretty light brew flavor wise but still might make a decent summer brew.

Orange/amber color with a nice off white head. Bread and sweet malt aroma. Sweet malt flavor with a very smooth finish. A solid effort.
