FROTHINGSLOSH (4763) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2006 This one came in my beer club and I am not familiar with the brewer. Another crap lager. Yeah. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a chestnut color with a large tan head. The aroma is sour vegetal malts. The flavor is sour, mildly vegetal and has a strong vinegar element. Drain pour.

JK (4349) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - NOV 8, 2009
UPDATED: APR 1, 2012 Copper color, with a very short lived off white head. Light caramel malt aroma. Malt flavor, some caramel and grain, with lager yeast. Solid. 6/3/7/3/15 Rerate from a fresh bottle. Big malt profile, the caramel is still there. Mild & dry hop aroma. This beer has excellent palate, and this is an outstanding session beer.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 5, 2009
Hazy amber with a thin white head, gone in a flash. Light aroma of Munich toasted malt, bread and light caramel. Taste of toasted malt, mild fruit and caramel. Palate slightly on the thin side and it finishes crisp with a touch of hops. Some fruit lingers on the back end. Pretty run of the mill.

ClarkVV (3891) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 2, 2005
Best Before October 2005 bottle from Liquor Mart. Consumed on 11/30/05.
Rusty copper colored beer, lightly hazy with just a trace of yeast settling out on the bottom. Some brighter strawberry red hues and an off-white head with fair retention and lacing, eventually receding to cover. In the nose is a lightly sour note, perhaps munich grains, and a hint of dry fruits (unripened berries, unripened nectarines). Dry, husky malts on the end. Smells just a touch metallic at first, but this passes. The flavor has plenty of medium-dry caramel, soily, lightly bitter hops and dry breadiness lingering. Moderately crisp yeast on the finish as well. Carbonation is moderate, pretty average for the style, while it has a lightly watery texture, though it’s not thin by any means. Surprised to find this is 6% abv, as it masks that very well and comes off as a very low gravity, albeit well-malted, session lager. Very even maltiness, not the most complex, but does provide bread, fruits, biscuits and light hops.

travita (3831) - Frisco, Texas, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Can. Clear, decent off white head, and orange red in color. The smell is bready, malt, caramel, and toast. The taste is just about the same as the smell. Better than I thought.
