Ah, I just don’t like the thick and sticky sweet take on lagers, these things should be a lot crisper. The aroma was too much caramel, the flavor followed suit. Very light toasting underneat the sweet and malty caramel, but the sticky sweetness was rather disappointing, especially with this one being labelled a godlen heroic lager?

Bottle pours a sllightly hazy light yellow amber with a medium off white head. Aroma is a typical light laget with some sweet corn and other light grains. Flavor is similar but a bit sharp and bitter. LIngering sweet honey and slightly bitter grain bitterness. Thanks Buckeyeboy again for this one.

Hazy copper with a nonexistent head. Sweet aroma with a caramel ending. Thick rich mouthfeel, big ending, almost too much.

Small white head thats gone in a flash, a touch of lace left behind. Clear gold color. Tinny, buttery nose. Light/medium body, light creaminess. The buttery aromas comes through on the palate, fairly dominant. Mild maltiness with little to no hop flavor. Finish is lightly sweet. Blech!

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAY 13, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2005 Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma is some yeast, bread and a slight amount of alchohol. Definitely not for the hopheads cuase there are really none present. This is decent but not outstanding.

jimhilt (2469) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 14, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2007 Pours a three finger off-white head that fades quickly to a ring leaving no lace. Clear amber color. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Slight hoppy nose. Flavor is sweet with hoppy overtones, unusually for a lager. $1.80 for a 12oz bottle from Tully’s Beer and Wine Well, ME.

Dorwart (2439) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 10, 2007
Thin head of medium sized bubbles which does not last long. Large amount of large chunky floaters in there. Almost look like coffee grounds. Sweet and fruity aroma with some pineapple, light malts and roasted grains. Color is a medium dark orange. Flavor is thin and sort of dry. Light malt presence with some more pineapple and a bit of spice. Finishes pretty clean and rather boring. An ok brew.

This was a big ole dog that’ll keep you company all day long. An easy drinkin’ amber, full of malts - especially strong taste of Werther’s candy. very little aroma.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JUN 15, 2003
This doesn't taste like an Ale, and indeed the name of the beer is "Balto Heroic Golden Lager" and it seems very Vienna-ish - bordering on Bock territority. And it's OK; very sweet/butter/toffee, a lot of chemicalness in the ending.

Cloudy, dark golden pour. Short white head. Strong aroma of sweet malts and grain (sweetened breakfast cereal) with big notes of caramel and apricot. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Watery texture. Sweet, caramel and honey-like finish. This is really close to being a very drinkable beer, but the sweetness gets to you about half-way through the bottle.
