DuffMan (6462) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 17, 2010
Bottle, brought back by dodo, shared with Parksy. Clear golden body, average white cap that quickly thins and fades. Aroma is grainy, slightly sweet, with a whiff of grassy hops. Palate is pretty much identical, with a dry papery note in the finish. The pale malt is better than average here, with a lightly toasty twist. Not bad.

tennessejed420 (927) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 12, 2011
bottle on the beach. Made with sugar cane and you can detect this aspect in the flavor, giving it a sweet - wood like aspect, along with corn starch and water. Light in body, not much going on in the aroma. No offensive, off flavors here, so I can say it will do the job for a light lager on the beach.

Bottle. Clear golden with small white head. Aroma is malt, hops and a little straw. Flavour is malt, hops, medium sweet, little straw, little grass and a little bitter.

Bottle from Honolulu. Pale yellow/gold, small white head, bready malt, cornflakes, low grassy bitterness, sweet finish. Nothing special.

jcr (2165) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAR 15, 2009
Draft. Pours a clear, golden with a spritzy white head. The aroma is sweet with some vegetal notes — molasses and corn — and a hint of grassy hops. The flavor is lightly sweet and very lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Better than many other mass-market pale lagers and refreshing enough. But not a lot of flavor in this one.

PorterPounder (5344) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2009
Honolulu, Hi - Whole Foods - 22 oz bomber. Medium gold pour, light white head, slight lace. Brief wet cardboard aroma. Flavor has some buttery notes, hint of metal, but not terrible overall. Somewhat of an oily mouthfeel. Noticed this beer as soon as I landed in Hawaii and remembered seeing the blue label with a warrior on it as a kid in California years ago.

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 13, 2009
Bottle… Clear yellow lager with a mid-sized, fizzy, white head. The aroma is nearly non-existent, but I am finally able to pull a drop of honey and a rumor of warm mash from the glass. Light-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Once warm, the flavor is all honey and pale grain sweetness with very little hop bitterness to counter. Finishes crisp, lightly sweet, and then astringent.

CampesinoTino (752) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 7, 2010
Bottle. Pours light golden with thin, foamy head. Aroma is sweet malted barley. Flavor begins with subtle malt sweetness followed by barley and lots of fizziness. It finishes with some more maltiness and a slightly sour aftertaste. Not a whole lot of flavor going on here but it’s a decent option for chugging on a hot day.

drjay44 (2568) - 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
