Pale golden color out of the bottle, crystal clear with evervescent bubbles and a thin fizzy head. Thin, chemically vegetal aroma. Soft mouthfeel. Some lemon citrus and white bread notes. Finish had a little soggy bread quality. Okay on a hot summer day, but it isn’t a hot summer day.

hopscotch (9996) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 5, 2006
Bottle... NTB Ernesto Festo ’06... Clear yellow ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Grainy, citrusy aroma with a light lemon note. The flavor is lightly bittered, but boasts sweet peach and mild lemon. Medium-bodied and fizzy. Lengthy, faintly bitter finish.

ROGUE (2145) - Newark, Delaware, USA - AUG 15, 2006
Light yellow color with an almost non-existant white head. Light gainy hop flavor with not much else. Not bad but not good either.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 10, 2006
Light yellow, fizzy head. Aromas of honey and grains. Unfortunately, that’s about as good as it got. Light and sweet, but nothing else going on here. Not offensive, just hard to distinguish from any other macros.

For old time Texans...this was the original Shiner before they put a half naked girl on a bottle and gave it a name. Decent Pilsner and drinkable on a hot day in Texas....which is almost everyday.

Reminded me of a local brew. The color wasn’t bad, but the head didn’t last a minute. Taste was okay. Could probably pound quite a few of these back in an afternoon.

Dogbrick (9156) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 26, 2006
Pale yellow-gold color with a fizzy thin white head that disspates quickly. Lacing is pretty much nonexistent. Light aroma of straw and corn. Light-bodied with vaugue grassy hops, malt and corn flavors. The finish is effervescent and lightly bitter. Although it is not a bad beer, it is kind of a wet blanket all around.

POD (198) - USA - JUL 22, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2006 Drank this one from a clear glass mug that originated as a 12 oz bottle. I consumed this with fresh picked sweet corn purchased from a roadside vendor just north of Hillsboro Ohio. Aroma was faint yeast and hops. Appearance was pale golden yellow with a nice white head. Flavor was a typical watery pale lager/pilsner taste. I actually think it tasted exactly like Michelob. It was cold, wet and refreshing - akin to drinking a cold glass of water on a hot day.

Gold color with a big white head. Grainy malt aroma. Weak sweet grainy malt flavor. Pretty drinkable.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 7, 2006
Can 42F Flute, light straw aroma, mixed with sweetness and a touch of soap. hops are not noticible. Light gold color with very little head or lacing, not much to speak of. Very light taste with slightly sweet nuances, its drinkable but not dry enough on the finish to be quaffable. Starts good and finishes light and flabby. Hops are very slight on the finish, Palate is light as is carbonation. Tolerable beer but nothing to right home about but hey $4 a sixer who can complain.
