theisti (3242) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JUN 11, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2012 Shaker pint draft at the Pineapple Grill at Kapalua golf course on Maui. The pour is clear golden, with not too much of a white head. The aroma is sweet honey malt, a bit of grassiness and not much else. The taste is sweet sugar malt, along with an unclean yeast, grassy dry finish. The palate is light to medium bodied, high level of carbonation and the sweet finish. This was easy enough to drink.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 27, 2009
12oz bottle from bevmo mission valley. Pours a medium golden color with a fluffy white head. Nose and flavor had a little extra sugary sweetness from the can sugar, decent lager.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - FEB 12, 2009
12oz bottle. Gold pour, much better than the typical pale lager, the head retention isn’t too bad either. Slight sweet malt aroma. A little sweet, no hop character at all, decent drinker.

drjay44 (2640) - Salida, Colorado, USA - NOV 28, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, short lived, white head, over a clear golden (SRM 5) body....nose is light malts, corn, cereal....taste is sweet corn, finishing perhaps with a bit of bitterness....mouth feel is light and watery, carbonation high. This meets all of the characteristics of a pale lager, a style not worth the malt. BJCP 5/2/8/3/4
