Reid (1905) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 27, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2014 22 oz bottle from a local "mom and pop" convienience store. $2.79 Pours a clear lightish amber colour ( like darker honey) with a nice sized frothy and thick off white head. Ok spicy/floral hop aromas..bread like malts. Good spicy hoppy taste..sweet bready malts balance in the back. nice. Mouthfeel is fine medium carbonation and medium thick..drinks real well. Overall really nice little amber lager here..not bad at all ( i find myself saying that often with Pyramid nowadays).

Lovely aroma of crisp hops and citrus. Nice deep orange pour with a big foamy head. Nice lacing. Flavour is smooth and hoppy, not getting a ton of lager elements but it has some very nice IPA ones

reebtogi (4214) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 28, 2014
650ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit with some light fruits and hints of pine and caramel. Taste is a light grapefruit and pine hop bitterness balanced nicely with a light caramel and fruity sweetness. A well crafted and easy to drink brew which actually has some flavor and body to it. Recommended.

presario (4643) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 19, 2014
Looks like a nice IPA. Dark crisp Amber with an inch of foam. Good malty hop scent. More hops than malt in flavour. Hops are nice. Body a trifle thin. OK.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Bottle:   Already better than I expected, nice head and lacing.   Soft burnt orange.   Seems like a nice balance, a bit grassy with some stray and hay, with a little touch of hops.   Wow, surprised by this one a bit.   I expected it to be out of balance, but so far I am impressed.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Nice smoothness, with a good bit of hops that don’t overbear on it.   Clean finish, quick, this one is good.   Deserves a better score than it has!   Well done Pyramid!!!

pdx77 (1376) - Oregon, USA - SEP 2, 2014
From bottle. Golden with a lot of creamy head. Aroma is pine resin and caramel. Taste is pine resin, biscuit, bitter citrus, and some sweet malt. Ultimately, a little too unbalanced in the sweet and bitter notes.

mikedR (1239) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Very enjoyable brew. Laid back and mellow like you expect from a lager. A slight hint of hops, hence the "IP" nature. Overall, quite flavorful.

Oscbert (1041) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 16, 2014
~citrusy hop and spicy hop aroma with bread, quite pleasant. ~Pours an amberish gold color with lasting creamy yellowish head, surprisngly hazy with visible particles. Strange for a lager..hop particles from dry hopping perhaps ~Citrusy hop and spicy hop flavor with caramel and bready malts. A bit bland. ~medium bodied with medium high Co2, lingering bitterness. ~Not as clean as I was expecting, Ill try another later. Drinkable, I rather just have a Sierra Nevada Pale ale.

ajnepple (2219) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - JUL 31, 2014
12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount. Amber and clear appearance with a small, dissipating, off-white head. Aroma of toasted grains, light toffee, citrusy hops, light pine and hay. Flavor of mild malt sweetness and light bitterness. Pretty smooth with a light to medium body. Drinkable, it’s OK.

Bottle from Legacy Liquor, Vancouver
Hazy amber color with small head. Light caramel aroma, a bit husky. Simple flavor, but with lean and drinkable caramel profile, with very light residual sweetness; correct hopping, not much hop qualities.
Easy beer.
