Frothy and rocky white head with good carbonation. Nice lacing. Light hops aroma with a bit of citrus. Some biscuit malt also. Color is a medium gold. Flavor is light and malty with a bit of hops and spice for a kick. Soft finish with more biscuits and a bit of bitterness. A light and refreshing brew.

Bottled. Clear golden. Rounded clean maltiness is this beer foremost feature. It’s medium bodied with average bitterness. Fairly well made easy drinking stuff.

jasonp (1557) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - SEP 21, 2004
Pours golden with a nice white head. Aroma is very faint - a hint of maltiness. Taste is moderately sweet and refreshing with notes of grain, grass, some citrus, mild hops and a prominent malt backbone. Mouthfeel is full and round. Good lacing. Not that complex but it’s a very solid lager that is much better than others in it’s class.

Clear dark yellow beer with a foamy white head. Mild hoppy and somewhat fruity aroma. Bitter hops, flowers and grass in the flavor. Flavorfull, fresh and easy.
