12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a crystal clear dark gold with just a tiny fizzy head. Nothing at all in the way of head retention or lacing. Aroma of light sweet corn and bread with just a touch of biscuit. Some light grassy hops floating on top. Fairly light flavor as well but there is nothing off about it. Corn and bread along with some spicy, grassy hops and a light refreshing bitterness. Moderate mouthfeel with a very clean finish. Overall, one of the better AAL’s I have had. Very refreshing and no off flavors. One to pick up again.

Clear Yellow, Huge Bubbly Head, Lots of Lacing. Light Grainy Aroma. Slightly Sweet, grain, corn, light bitter finish. Light watery body. Easy to Drink. OK for what it is, session beer, but not sure what so "Special" about it.

16oz can poured into a shaker. This brew is thin and watery and is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. A bit grainey. Really, not bad for the style. Enjoyable.

Bottle - small foamy head, medium amber color, very sweet malty aroma and flavor, kind of syrupy, not very good overall

tmoreau (2724) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2013
Paired this with a Sunday hotdog at Punky’s Pub in Lombard, IL.. Dispensed to a shaker with a clear, light golden hue, a modest amount of white head foam, and minimal lacing. The aroma was light grain, light Pils malt/lager scent, and a touch of light corn sweetness. Low hop bitterness, good carbonation, light body(almost watery), but crisp and very sessionable. Washed down the dog nicely, and also refreshed!

Sample left for me. Pours light yellow, typical pale lager, with perfect head. Not much on the nose, maybe a hop essence similar to what Budweiser uses? It actually has some taste. some citrus notes and mild bitterness. Reminds me a bit like a Sam Adams. Not too bad for a pale lager.

Mora2000 (5893) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Very light, clear yellow with a small white head. The aroma is full of grain with some grass thrown in. The flavor is more of the same. I get some grain and corn as well as some grass and a bit of sugar. Fairly sweet and malt overall. Thin mouthfeel and high carbonation.

Pours brassy gold, with a small white head....bubbles coating the inside of the glass. Aroma is bread, malt. Taste is slightly fruited, bread, grass. Smooth, Crisp, clean and light. Very nice, one of the better Pale Lagers out there.
