Had on draft out of pitcher poured into a pint glass. As the commercial deScription says, this was a nice smooth light amber lager. Really would make a good session beer. Smell of faint hops and some caramel notes. As mentioned early, it was very drinkable with a nice malty start followed by some hop bitterness.

Amber. Fast, soapy head. Aroma: Caramel malt, herbs. Flavor: Same but with bread. Creamy but dry. Bitter, grassy finish. Drinkable but not memorable.

Bottle->lager glass: pours a large, off-white head atop a hazy, amber body. Aroma of bread and citrus. The body is light, the texture thin, but the carbonation is lively. The flavor’s duration is average, being moderately sweet. Overall, just a thin beer, but not horrible, esp. not for middle of nowhere, VA (which is where I’m kinda from).

(12 ounce bottle - pint glass) Pours a cloudy yellowish brown color with decent head. Has a weird dead wet grass aroma that I could not get past. Taste is moderatly hopped and balanced with a malty sweetness. Grassy and citrusy hops are used. Medium body and pleasant finish.

This beer just shakes my beliefs. I thought I loved lagers, but I don’t particularly like this one. It is just a bit too sweet for this style. I should j just quit with this and get Americas lager instead.

Pours a copper-orange, with a medium sized, off-white head. Lots of caramel malt in the aroma, with notes of hops and hay. Flavors is very clean, with caramel and toasted malts. Finishes clean with crisp. Overall, well put together, and one of my favorite "drinking" brews. Nothing to complex, or over done!

UPDATED: APR 29, 2010 Draft, 4 oz. sample at restaurant. Deep copper with white foamy head. Profuse lacing. Aroma yeasty. Flavor grainy, maybe some corn. Flat taste, I don’t know how else to put it. I get zero sweetness or hops. Bitter all the way, even the lingering aftertaste. Did not resemble other ratings here, so maybe the keg had been poorly cared for. May try again later.
I don’t know what I had before, but it was not this. Same in appearance. Aroma of caramel malt and light spicy hops. Taste of caramel malt nicely balanced by spicy/earthy hops. Medium body, light carbonation, sweet finish. Overall a good go-to beer, and would complement a variety of culinary dishes. Glad I tried this again.
