COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised
A full-bodied lager with lots of malt and hop character. A touch hoppier than many lagers yet perfectly balanced with lots of fruity hop character and fragrance.

DavidWoodruff (390) - Windsor, California, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Clear pale gold with a fair white head. Sweet malt aroma. Slightly yeasty flavor. Balanced to a degree of blandness. Hops are entirely an afterthought. Well made but uninteresting.

Dorqui (2110) - Brescia, ITALY - MAR 1, 2013
Bottled 0,50L. Elegant golden fraught color, medium bubbly presence, good head of long resistance. Fresh malty nose, bread, grains, cellar. Very pleasant body, little crisp with a good bitterness content, pleasant bread and malty notes. Discreet resistant final, an unusual lager with something extra.

Majin (256) - West Des Moines, Iowa, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Pale yellow clear poor, small foam. Shallow taste, not bitter. Drinks down smoothly, no long lasting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Onslow (1184) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Pour from a 22oz bottle. Clear pale yellow brew with fizzy white head. NOt much aroma but what there is light malt, a little grass. Taste is a little sweet, a little bread, some drying in the finish which I suppose is hops. On the up side no off flavors or vegetal tastes or odors. Think palate. Comparable to a better mainstream lager.

Imaena (1855) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Bottle. As far as PLs go this is one of the best. Not my favorite style but a good beer all the same.

barn0216 (407) - California, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Crisp yellow color with great clarity, one finger pour that dissipates quickly. Fairly fragrant aroma for a light lager, grain and flowers. Nice flavor of grain, hop bitterness is evident, slightly metallic. Dry. Rather good for a light lager.

mikem409 (1491) - bloomfield, Michigan, USA - JAN 3, 2013

Hartung32 (223) - Indiana, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Very solid lager. Nothing spectacular, but it has a grassy/hop nose with a smooth easy drinking body. A little light in some flavors, but good nonetheless. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ilovedarkbeer (2300) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Bottle at dinner. Pours a golden color with a small lacy white head. Earthy, skunky, buttery, and crisp. Decent quaffer.
