Ratman197 (9045) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 8, 2012
500 ml bottle poured a hazy yellow with a lasting creamy white head. Aroma of straw, bread dough, citrus, spicy hops and light grassiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread dough and spicy hops with a smooth lightly bitter finish.

obguthr (3439) - Lynchburg, Virginia, USA - DEC 31, 2011
Shitty hay nose, lesser bean notes. Light amber, medium snow white head. Light sweet malt, hay, and bean flavor. A bit weak and not so great.

crossovert (6363) - Illinois, USA - DEC 25, 2011
500ml returnable bottle. 08.09.2012. Technically it is a Riedenburger beer. It pours a clear golden with a semi fizzy/foamy white head. The smell is pretty fragrant. It isn’t always that you get imports to smell this much. It has a lot of grassy noble hops, some honeylike malt, and more grain, bready malt. Pretty standard. This is a typical Riedenburger beer in the flavor. Slight tartness, grainy, a lot of undefinable sweetness. Carbonation is nice. I wouldn’t be surprised if this is the Spezial form Riedenburger just repackaged. Overall just a really standard helles.

NielsenRatings (8275) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Bottle @ home. Just showed up in Colorado and looks pretty interesting. Here goes... Pours a hazy, golden yellow appearance with a big white head. Pretty tame, lightly grassy/floral hoppy, light pils/pale malty aroma. Light, crisp, a touch grainy, pils/pale malty, straw flavor. Pretty boring but I can’t find any faults in it.

Strykzone (4479) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 18, 2011
500 ml. bottle. Light haze in this golden beer. Plenty of carbonation floats up. A thick white head that leaves light lacing. The nose is malt, grain, and soft European hops. The taste is a bit bready with a hint of sharp hops that provide a biting bitterness. A bit of fruit and yeast are noted. Some cereal and grass, too. A decent session beer.

PatioCO (6) - Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2011 does not count
This brings me back. This is the quintessential Bavarian Lager. Living in Europe for how long and getting so bored with most German beers, this one stands out as really bringing the Quality back.

Grainy malt character, with smooth grassy butter in the mouth. The hops give it a balanced bitter-lemon cleanliness that lasts through to the end. Finish is refreshing and slightly vanilla, leading to a long hoppy, malty but clean aftertaste.

TheBeerGod (5053) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - DEC 1, 2011
Bottle. Golden bodied with a short, foamy white head. Aroma is malty and sweet with cereal grains and corn notes. Taste is slightly grassy with more sweet malt, grains and corn notes. Body is light-medium with a fizzy, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more grains, soft grassy notes, light honey, corn and sweet malt.

thegreenrooster (3088) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 18, 2011
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is malty and corn sugar sweet. Flavor is is mostly heavy sweet malts with some wet paper bag and mineral water. Not real good.

Drake (7948) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 16, 2011
Half liter bottle from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville. Pours a hazy golden color with a thin fizzy white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of grain and corn with a bit of nuttiness and a little bit grassy. The taste is pale grainy malts with herbal, grassy hops and a slight sweetness in the finish. Thin and watery.
