Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, cereal), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), with light notes of soap and sugar. Flavor is moderately sweet, trace bitterness. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter, slightly husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Smells like both corn and white sugar were added (not smelling either the piss or vinegar, though, thankfully). Quite sweet with almost no bitterness whatsoever. A beer for those who don’t like beer.

3fourths (8110) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 14, 2013
bottle. sparkling clear gold with a fine-bubbled frothy white head. characterless and quiet neutral grain nose (rice, raw corn, green hay / field grass) has a dusting of minerallic yeast powder that grows with time and warmth, as does a lemon-cake pickled pepper scent. surprisingly syrupy and chewy body, droop-y, goop-y and weight-y in the mouth with a sourish and rough rice hull and grain husk quality. bottom line: sludge-y like all get out (the mouthfeel reminding me of some horrendous "Rye Wines") up front before dissolving in a rice cake flavoring washing of carbonation, finishing as the inside flavor of a rice marshmallow dessert food product wrapper.

Tasted at the 2010 Craft Lager Festival in Manitou Springs. Clear pale straw color with a lively white head. Muted aroma brings just a bit of green grass and raw malted barley. Flavor is very simplistic, but finishes clean with a little peppery hop spice. Slightly watery body, but smooth good carbonation and balance, just nothing too memorable here.

BeerandBlues2 (9903) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Tap. Pours clear yellow with a medium, fizzy white head, lasting with good lacing. Aroma is malty grain and meal with corn and grassy hops, clean lager yeast. Flavor is malty and corn with medium bitterness and a clean lager character. Light bodied, moderate carbonation.

Draft at SBV. Pours a thin head over a pale yellow (SRM 2-3) clear body.....nose is very light with minimal grain and hop....taste light a very light pilsner.....mouth feel is light.

Ratman197 (9986) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 8, 2008
On tap @ Rockyard poured a clear yellow with a lasting white head. Aromas of straw and light spice. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of straw with a hint of spice and a crisp lightly bitter finish.

Aubrey (3443) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - SEP 1, 2004
Clear and very light golden; bright white head with some nice lace patterns. Very smooth texture with a mild carbonation. Malts were mild, overpowered by a strange medicinal characteristic, possibly a "spicy" element from the hops. Had a sharp, metallic edge to it, too. Hops were herbal and grassy, with a decent bitterness level. Not undrinkable by any means, but it had some odd things going on.
