dm9831 (1512) - Monee, Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2009
clear gold, nice white, quickly disipating head, some lace. nose of airy grain, sweet malt. flavor follows the nose, sweet malt, grain, hiny of hops. medium bodied, creamy mouth feel, slightly bitter finish. perhaps i’d like this a bit more if the relatively high alcohol content was more apparent. tip of the hat to cornfiled for providing the bottle.

jcr (2112) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - SEP 16, 2009
Bottle. Deep gold clear body. Off-white, fizzy head that rapidly diminishes. First whiff is a bit sulphuric followed by mild grassy notes along with some corn and not near enough sweet, bready malts, though they show up in the flavor which is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Sweet caramel taste gives way to bitter grass which turns into grain. Fairly nice balance between sweet and bitter. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. This is a fine lager that would be much better if it were cleaner, crisper.

MrBunn (2384) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 12, 2009
Bottle. Golden body, pillowy head and aromas of slinky hops and a little pepper. Flavor is very sweet; apples, honey and grass drive the car, but there is a skunk in the backseat. Good enough but nothing to race out to buy more.

smcolw (530) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 12, 2009
Clear, light golden color. Moderate head that settles to a single layer of bubbles. Low lace, spotty. Dry, raw grain aroma. Possibly some light colored crystal. Low, low hop. Highly carbonated, giving it a crisp mouthfeel. I thought I had smelled the telltale signs of adjuncts. Here, I think the taste confirms it. Overall, a very dry beer. There’s some bittering hop flavor in the aftertaste.

bubbleflubber (1712) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 9, 2009
Bottle from Peabody’s Wine & Beer in Boone, NC. Surprised, actually, as this one seems to be rarer than some, and was readily available. Copper pour into the glass, with a light soapy head that leaves webbed lace. The nose has some toasted malt and maybe just a hint of citric essence. The flavors are bitter twinges on toasted biscuit malt, rind/zest/peel, grassy notes and some light honey in there. There is a decently peppering bitter finish, and a weak body with a thin texture. Not the traditional lager, I know, but an appreciated take on the vast mediocrity of the style.

obguthr (3439) - Lynchburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2009
Draft: Weak malt aroma. Clear amber, medium off-white head. Decidedly bitter for a lager, the flavor of lemon peel is discernible but otherwise it is a fairly generic bitterness. Rusty and metallic mouthfeel. Alcohol is obvious. This isn’t exactly what I want when I order a lager. It seems like a lager trying to be an epa or a bitter and failing at all three. Only 7 ratings? I know why.

Cornfield (5362) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2009
Bottle from Pat’s Liquors in Porter, Indiana: This pours a deep golden body with steady streams of bubbles supporting a modest, creamy white head. The aroma is sweet and malty, honey covered bread, with a countering grassiness. Nice balance of malt to hops in the flavor, finishing on a bitter grassy note. Nice.

cheap (3804) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2009
Is this a new beer? Only 5 ratings? Smell is a little yeasty when you pop the lid along with some malted olfactory. First taste reminds me of a sharp pilsner bite. Refreshing tho bitter on the sides of the tongue. Decent carbonation makes the palate somewhat acceptable. Clean and pale yellow lager appearence. Some fine bubbles for a head. Overall, more like a sharp pilsner than a premium lager.

Onslow (1102) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - AUG 24, 2009
Bottle from J&J’s Discount LIquor. Amber pour with a whitish head that slowly fizzles. Refreshing aroma dominated by hops. Thin bodied with weak malty flavor at the start with a dry finish and a nice bit of hops bitterness at the end. A little more like an ale done light than a pale lager, but a very quaffable brew. Arf!

emacgee (3875) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUL 12, 2009
Pours a translucent orange witha one finger white head. The nose is sweet, malty, bready malt, some grassy hops, hay. Flavor shows some corn, grassy, cardboard, sweet, malty, mild bitterness. Palate is smooth with a mild carbonation and bitterness.
