Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 17, 2010
Sampled from 12-oz bottle acquired via ABA beer bottle swap. Pours a clear golden pale colored brew with an average off-white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of golden grain malt, some light bread dough and saltine crackers, and a hint of grassy hops. Taste is light to medium bodied, with flavors of golden grain malt, grassy hops and a touch of lemon zest. Finish is a little gritty with a short lived grassy hop aftertaste.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - JAN 20, 2007
This beer was brought back by one of the guys in our monthly tasting from his trip to Idaho. This beer is a really clean, refreshing lager that was a little suprising actually. A fresh, citrusy nose almost lemon-like in quality. Appearance was cloudy, really light yellow in color, with an average white head. Flavors were crackers, some really light hops with an overall clean finish. An really tasty lager that would be perfect for a summer day, although a bit out of place on a cold January night.

jake65 (3444) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - OCT 1, 2006
Draft: A bit of cloudiness in the blonde color with a smaller white head. Taste is a bit grassy and some sublte maltiness. No real aftertaste to speak of. Clean and easy to drink.

5000 (6626) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 27, 2006
Bottle: Hazy straw, moderate fizzy white head, spotty lacing, strong carbonation.   Aroma of straw, grass, and slight cereal.   Pale malt flavor, straw, a bit of grass.   Very clean, finishes fairly crisp.   Not very big to start with, but doesn’t have any nasty aftertaste like many Pale Lagers have (yes, I know this is a Premium Lager).   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Perfect microbrewed lawnmower beer.   I would have no problem drinking this one again.   Thanks Jordan for this brew!

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 17, 2003
Pours a gold hue, not much to it. Has a nutty nose with some butter. Flavor is consistent with the nose, add some sourness. A smooth small palate. A unique lager.
