COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed to be light, crisp and refreshing using four types of German malts. Deliciously hopped with German and domestic varieties, imparting this light beer with flavor. This beer takes the most care, and much more time to condition than any other.

JaBier (4995) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Clear yellow pour with a thin white head. Very faint malty aroma with nothing else going on. Flavor is better than expected with sweet malt, yeast and a bit of cream. Aside from the lack of aroma, not too bad for a light beer.

Draft Sample at pub. Pours clear, straw yellow, nice white head. Decent lacing. Nose is corn and skunky light beer. Sweet, fruity taste with mild corn flavor and some bitter. Pretty good light beer. Tasty, crisp and clean.

cheap (4202) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2007 Ubiquitous pale yellow american lager color and appearance. Has a unique slightly sour and pungent aroma. Taste is somewhat buttery and quite friendly. Cannot believe this is a light beer. Easy to like and at times may seem a bit watery on the palate. Mild carbonation and no bitterness to speak of on the finish. A very nice nice drink if this is truly a lager.

Dogbrick (8657) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2006
Sample at the brewpub. Pours a clear pale golden color with a thin ivory head with pretty good retention. Minimal lacing. Aroma of grassy hops. Light-bodied and fizzy with mild hops and malt flavors. The finish is effervescent and mildly bitter. Typical of the "starter" Lager at many a brewpub.

Nate (3778) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2005
Mild beany aroma, grassy hops and light grain. Crisp. Pale golden body with mild haze and white foamy head. Light body with medium-high carbonation. Start with good malt taste and crisp hops. Nice light carbonic acidity and bitterness, reminding me of a macro pale lager but of higher quality. Finish is clean and bitter with mild bitter after. A decent light lager.

euserphriendly (167) - Holland, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2005
The light beer choice for the microbrewery crowd who doesn’t want to really try a microbrew. A bit of a grassy taste when i had it. Better than a mass market beer any day.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2011 It is what it is, an intro beer to appeal to the mass market kind of drinker who finds himself blessed to be in a microbrewery but does not want to get too daring.+++Draft only. Pours a light golden color with a medium white head. There is a faint sour aroma. Light body. The flavor has very little by way of malt or hop presence. Slightly sour aftertaste.
