Travlr (13304) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Draft at the source. Hazy bright yellow color, thick white head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of very fruity rising bread dough. Taste has lots of mixed tropical fruits, hay, straw, nicely balanced. Holy cow, if every pale lager tasted like this, Iíd drink them all the time. In fact, I spent the first 20 years of my life drinking pale lagers because nothing else was easily available. If only this had existed then....

Growler shared at Campdown Brewdown thanks to argo0. Pours a clear golden with medium foam. Nose is sharp and fresh dough, noble hops, squash. Taste is a bit soapy, hoppy, heavy biscuit and dough. A bit oily and even smoky in the nose. Very nice.

orangesol (918) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2013 First and foremost, this is for the new blue collar lager, not the old version.
A - Pours clear golden yellow with a small half finger tall white head, dissipating down to a light film, leaving spotty streaks of lace down parts of the glass.
S - Smells of lightly sweet grain, bready pils malt, spicy and citric hops and not much else. A little slow at the beginning it starts to come out once it warms up. Smells really fresh and inviting.
T - Starts off with some of the sweetness from the malt and some of the spicy hops quickly giving way to some dulled fruitiness and the chewy pils malt. Quite balanced throughout with nothing standing above anything else. Finish is pretty clean with only a bit of lingering chewiness. Like the nose it just tastes like a nice, refreshing lager.
M - Light body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, mildly hoppy feel throughout. This stuff is way too easy to drink, my glass disappeared super fast on this hot day.
O - I liked the original version but this is even better. It is just as easy drinking but the lighter body just works better. No one flavor dominates making it disappear quite quickly. Another lighter option in a sea of big Pizza Boy beers.

Growler at the Campground Brewdown courtesy of Aaron. Pours a clear golden amber with a thin white head. Fuzzy musk and grain, spicy on the nose. Medium bodied, sweet grain, toast. Chewy grain. Long and sweet, grain and crackers. Tasty.

kramer (5095) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Tap. Pours a clear light gold body with a small fizzy white head. The nose is pretty light, just a bit of pale malt and some light but very bright citrusy hops. The flavor is clean and super crisp with a nice snappy hoppiness on the finish. Light bodied an super easy drinking with soft fizzy carbonation. Probably the best Pale Lager Iíve ever had. Lots of flavor, little alcohol.

jercraigs (8060) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2012
2012-08-17. Dark golden yellow body with nice beige head. 3+ Nice hoppy grassy aroma fades a bit. Modest flavour, modest hop character and bitterness mild but pleasant pale malt, modest grassy hops. 6+ Smooth average bodied palate. Decent, it is better than I expected, pretty serviecable lager.

On tap sampler at Alís of Hampden during vacation from June 19, 2012. I couldnít find Pizza Boy on the site at the time, so thanks to jsmerig to start the beer ratings. Yellow colored beer with no head and not much carbonation. Light aroma of hops that was unexpected and light biscuit taste. I didnít even know it was a pale lager!
