Draft at the brewery. Golden color with white head. Light sugary grain / malt, earthy hops, and yeast / grass. Aroma matches the flavor. Decent beer; and above average for the style.

RBSG 2008. Aside from a flashback to that damn Amigo car commercials with that annoying song this wasn’t that bad. Pours gold, very clear, with a small white head. Balanced session lager, doughy in the malts, a touch grainy, earthy hops with a light spicy touch to them.

On tap @ Lost Abbey, RBSG. Clear copper-golden color, sparse white head. Clean, slight toasted grain and corn aroma. Smooth golden grain taste, slightly sweet on the back end. Decent.

Ughsmash (7283) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 11, 2008
On tap at Lost Abbey. Poured clear, healthy golden with a well-retained cap of sticky white head. The aroma found soft sourdough and lemony notes upfront with other pale malts and clover honey behind.. quite nice. The flavor had a pale malt and light honey core with spicy black pepper and tart lemon riding the edges.. just a touch too tart, which threw off the balance a little. Light-bodied and tart overall on the palate.. slightly sticky on the back-end, otherwise refreshing.

RB#5700: From tap at the brewery. Pours clear and golden orange with a lacing white head. Mild caramel malt aroma but rather vague. Light caramel flavour and clean brew. Mild bitterness into the finish. As told: a beer brewed for those visitors that don’t really like beer :)

StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - AUG 4, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2008 On tap at RBSG at Lost Abbey. Pours a light copper color with a small off-white head. Aromas of lightly roasted barley and bready yeast. Tasted of malted grain and molasses. The mouthfeel was light and a bit astringent. Finish was short and dry. Overall: A very sessionable pale lager. Very tasty.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2008
Pours a clear amber gold, with a small off white head. Smells of lively crisp grain, caramel malt, and a subtle hop presence. The flavor is of pretty malty characters, nothing too exciting, but decent for a pale lager. Pretty easy drinking, real smooth and fairly flavorful for the style. The grain isnt overpowering and there wasnt anything really offensive about it. Just simple is all.

doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 19, 2008
On-tap at PPSC. Pours light yellow with a moderate white head, specks of lace. Smells crisp and malty, slightly sweet. Tastes crisp and clean malty with a bit of hay and some earthy hops. Thin, semi-dry body, vibrant carbonation.

Draught, Lost Abbey
Just for shits and giggles I checked out the Amigo. Golden colour, with slight amber. Decent bubbly head. Unionmade aroma simply reeks of corn. Quick and bland. Decently made but boring, and even a small glass is a bit painful.

on tap at Solana Beach, not bad at all, it for sure isn’t on par with alot of their brews, but I think its great this style is brewed by a great brewer, its very drinkable, low alc.% and nice on a hot day, with a nice pizza! malty brew, some grain flavors, slightly fruity, nice drinking beer!
