Pours a hazy pale yellow, very thin head, might as well call it nonexistant. Strong hop aroma. A much better mouthfeel than I was expecting, which was biting and acidic. But no, it was kind of creamy. Not too bad. decent flavor, a little light for my taste, but overall a good beer! Surprised I am!

Golden coloured. Rather malty and sweet. Some hoppiness. Mild and smooth finish.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2004
Clear light golden colour. Decent nose with malt and faint lemon-like hops. Flavour is softly malty, quite pleasant and drinkable with a medium bitter finish. Nice enough but nothing special.

A decent lager nonetheless, but still falls a little short from being great. Smooth and easy drinking with mild hops without the skunkiness.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 27, 2004
Sierra's take on budweiser. Nothing special about this American Lager style of beer. But I guess that's what this style is supposed to be. Perfect for a hot summer day on the beach.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2004
Golden with a white head, good lacing. Nose is yeasty with malt and hops. Flavor is wheaty and hoppy, mouthfeel is smooth.
