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

tmoreau (3571) - 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 (6151) - 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.

Patrickctenchi (5870) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 20, 2013
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.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 23, 2013
12oz bottle. Code on bottle reads "2272SF". Clear golden yellow color. Thin white head, quickly fades to minimal. Bread in the nose. Some lemon and light lagery skunk. Only little loose lace. More sweet taste, light sourness. Little skunky bite. Light body. Pronounced carbonation. Flavor is watered down, but whats there is just a lightly skunky breadiness. Barely a step up from macro lagers

umich03jm (3427) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Bottle from trade with Crajun. Pours slightly cloudy, pale yellow, with a small head that fades quickly. Aroma is nice, pale malt, honey, grass, and even a touch a fruit or red berries. Taste is a bit sweet though. Slightly artificial sweetness but not bad. Very grassy, lots of honey, light fruitiness. I would really like this if it wasn’t too sweet. Overall, still a well above average pale lager.

vilevile86 (1) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 31, 2012 does not count
Light enough for smooth drinking but enough bite to know your drinking a decent American lager. Straight forward

ContemplateBeer (1973) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Aroma of lemongrass, light floral hops and pear. Appearance is hazy gold with light white head. Flavor of honey/lemongrass up front with minimal sweetness for the style, light floral hops throughout, and a slightly toasty, clean finish. The beer is light bodied but well carbonated and soft on the palate. Very well done for the style.

Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Grainy and relatively clean, with a light sweetness and very low hoppy bitterness. Not bad.
