A go-to clean, zippy, thirst-quenching, inoffensive watery pale lager - as usual the more I drink of the bottle and the warmer it gets, the less I like it, but it’s better than most in this category.

Bottle @ home shared with Thompson. Clear golden color, small to average sized white head. Smell and taste malts, quite crisp and clean, a slight grainy sweetness and a nice malt bitterness. I must say I just got home from an intensive workout so I was thirsty as hell. Anyway, I liked it.

ordybill (520) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - FEB 23, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- ahh, the green glass skunkiness Appearance- Straw yellow with a large white head. Taste- Skunky and rather dull, not good palate- A light bodied brew with medium carbonation. Overall-Avoid this beer, it is dull, skunky and very forgettable, Overall: Hardly exciting, but not at all distasteful. This is the beer we should have been drinking in college. Doesn’t require a lot of thought, goes Dow fast and easy

Atom (1634) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Bottle pours a clear pale straw/golden with a large white head. Aroma of skunked grassy hops. Malt and yeast flavor, yep that’s a pale lager. I’d take it over say bud light.

not really getting a whole lot of difference between this and the premium, even side by side. both passable pale lagers, but not anything to return to.

Radek Kliber (6589) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 24, 2014
Where and how: bottle 330 ml
Aroma green bottle issue up front. Musky wet cloth, but not too heavy as there are worse cases. Lighter, herbal notes with grainy backing.
Appearance :
Top: bright white top, sparse lace.
Base: straw gold.
Palate : mid-lighter body, lighter carbonation but I would not call it flat.
Taste: soft feel with semi dry finish. Mild hop presence.
other notes beyond green bottle issues this is fairly refreshing offering.
