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

Bomber shared with kim johansen after some unsuccessful late night drinking. Pours gold nice tan head. Nice lagery nose. Taste is light and refreshing and all in all not half bad.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2009 Bottle from Valley Farm. Medium golden in color. Sweet grain aroma. Some corn as well. Crisp and grainy. Decent lager. Kind of reminds me of Lucky from the 90’s.

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.

I guess it is a red stripe knockoff. Got it from a place in Anaheim where Ron and I picked up a Mickey’s. Now enjoying while watching fireworks. Fruity, grassy aroma with some coconut. Zero taste or flavor. Very foamy. points for no off-taste. It’ll have to do.

Hophead22 (2879) - 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.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2011
[Bottle] Pours a very light yellow color with a fizzy white head. Sweet nose of sugar cane and corn syrup. Smells a little oxidized too. The taste is grainy, with hints of metal and lingering sweetness. Champagne-like carbonation. Yikes! I only bought a bomber of this, but I really had to choke it down.

Capa (2727) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JUL 10, 2016
A pretty standard pale lager. When fresh from an ice bath it is quite refreshing and void of most flavor. A hint of hop bitterness rounded out with light malt sweetness. As it warms on the beach it gets quite off-putting. Nothing to see here, move along.
