Another sweet very drinkable light malt profile no hop lager. Nothing to it but nothing offensive and more alcohol than usual which is a plus.

Dogbrick (9830) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 24, 2011
Sample at the Ohio University Inn & Conference Center during the Thirsty Dog /Cheese/Chocolate Tasting as part of Ohio Brew Week. Surprised I hadn’t actually had this before. The beer is a clear golden color with a thin white head that bubbles away to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of grainy malt and hops. Light body with flavors of grassy hops, sweet bready malt and a touch of fruit. The finish is crisp and mildly hoppy, and has a fruity aftertaste. Pretty average overall, but did go well with the cheese.

LiteWait (267) - New Hampshire, USA - JUL 13, 2011
12 oz bottle purchased from Nikki’s Licquors in Providence RI. Color is a caramel brown, almost see thru. Lots of carbonation bubbles. Thick off white bubbly head. Nose of caramel and malt. Creamy mouthfeel, with caramel, yeast and hops from front to roasted malt in the finish. Very smooth with no bitterness. I was very impressed with this brew. Very easy to drink.

12 oz bottle, purchased @ Nikki’s Liquors in Providence, RI. Hazy amber color. ¼ inch white head. Very good lace down the glass. Highly carbonated. Nose of caramel malt and biscuits. Nice flavor of malt, bread and a light hop finish. Smooth and easy to drink. Could knock back a bunch of these brews. Refreshing. Would drink this again.

Pours gold with a lasting white head. Smells of grass, hay, wildflowers, dry malt. Tastes of earth, tea, some peppery hints, floral with a light citrussy finish.

Apr 26, tap @ Thirsty Dog, Akron. Typical lager, lots of flavor of malts and hops, balanced and crispy. Very drinkable. Finsihes with a nice bitter aftertaste.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 14, 2011
Bottle from the Carrboro Bev Co. Actually don’t know that I’d ever had this before. Bright golden pour, fizzy and with a billowy carbonation. Some modest hops in the nose, lots of dry fruits too. Mouthfeel feels just a bit weak, despite the abundant carbonation, petering out quite quickly. Flavor comes across as just a bit too bready, occluding some of the dry, hoppy, citrusy elements that seem more appealing (although you could argue that these tend to take the beer a bit to the far edges of the style designation). Decent overall, but probably wouldn’t seek it out again.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2011
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a very deep gold color with a small, frothy white head. The head fades rather quickly. The nose is fairly vibrant with sweet pale malts and a bit of hops. This one leans to the sweet side for a lager with some honey and a very slight leafy hop note. Medium body with average carbonation and a pleasingly crisp finish. Well balanced, maybe slightly malt heavy, but very drinkable. I thought it was rather enjoyable.

probstblueribbon (3353) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 18, 2011
12 fl oz bottle from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear amber with a small white head. Aroma: Raw barley, pleasant light caramel with some fruity notes, grains/cereals, biscuit and toast malts, a touch of grassy hops? Palate: Medium body, fine effervescence. Flav.: A definite grassy, herbal note, bread/biscuit malts, some light vague fruitiness and a little caramel, other cereals/grains; dry with restrained bitterness and a light, pleasant malt finish.

Pleasant, like most Labs.
