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.

Ughsmash (7086) - 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.

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2006
This beer doesnít look, smell, or taste like the pale lager that itís classified as here. Not that itís anything great, more like a Vienna wannabe. Iís got an orange/copper body with a slender yet sustained off-white head. The aroma is faint, sweet malt with a subtle floral/herbal hopping. Itís thin with a sweet bready flavor and just a touch of bitterness to keep the sweetness under control. Decent enough for a watery brew.

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Pcked up single 12-oz bottle from Brennanís 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.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 18, 2004
Dark golden color with a moderate off white head. Malt and mild floral hops aromas. A real older style lager. Rich malt base that simply says, this is beer. This was the type of beer that was on tap across the US 50 years ago. Straight forward brew.

badgerben (4385) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 13, 2009
Courtesy of Skyview. Very murky brown/orange color with a quickly collapsing large head. Fairly heavy floral and citrus hops for a pale lager. Those fade in the flavor a lot. Mostly grains and caramel.

ChainGangGuy (4347) - Marietta, 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.

12 oz bottle. Poured a clear dark orange color. Head was two fingers high and off white with decent retention. Some lace was left behind at the end. There were whiffs of biscuity malt and subdued caramel, but not much else. Dry and grainy flavor accented by white paper and some grassy hops. Eh.
