Can. Pours a light golden with a thin white head- lasting. Aroma is cream of wheat, toast, bready, good pils malt, light herbal kick fresh hops then a bit corn, and slight husky grit. Flavor is more big pils malt, cracker, cereal grit, husk and rice hull, fresh spicy european hops, light toast, good hops in the end- mod bitter. Good.

My can says Leaderboard Trophy Lager Thanks to Colin for this one. Hazy yellow straw with a one finger creamy bone white head, pretty good retention, actually. Light floral and citrus hops up front, some sweet bready malts finishing it up. Flavor was a little bit more floral, though the soft citrus is still present. Again, sweet bready malts are about the only other thing. Bitterness peaks around a 2 in the finish. Light body with low to moderate carbonation. Pretty much everything about this beer is subtle, and it works quite well. This was a nice surprise to the boring pale lager category. Would be great on a hot day. That said, it did well on this twenty defree day as well.

Nothing wrong with this. Cool can. Easy drinking pale lager, typical smell of corn, little soap. Taste is clean and simple, just like it should be. Nicely dun.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 23, 2007
Thanks to emacgee! Pours a hazy honey colour with a large foamy white head. Initially very active carbonation which died down slightly apon the finish. Nose of yeast, floral hops, caramel malts, grass and citrus fruits. Initial taste is very light bodied, but demonstrates grain and mild hops. Finishing with clean mild malt and wet palate. An extremely light bodied brew which is not usually what I enjoy to drink, but definitely enjoyed this one for sure!

puzzl (3237) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Grassy, dank, wet, grassy, kind of unappealing aroma. Very vegetal. Sweet, grainy, basic barley flavor, actually pretty nice after the unappealing aroma. Quite drinkable. Not too bad.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAY 7, 2009
Can: Light golden with a white film of head. Clean/dry aroma- bready/crackery, nice. Light and crisp body. Dry flavor with a pale bready dry malt character with crackery notes and grassy mild bitterness. Clean and dry- a great beer to session. I wish there were more simple, well done lagers like this.

Veeve (312) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - SEP 7, 2005
appears gold on its own but almost a lemony-lime tint in the light. almost clear. minimal white head that quickly disippates. some lacing remains at top of inside rim. smells fresh and a bit citrus. tastes very grassy and some citrus.light body. light carbonation. clean and easy mouthfeel. For a light beer- this is a great one.

bubbleflubber (1709) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 30, 2006
Canned as "Leaderboard Trophy Lager". Pours with an whipped eggwhite head, huge and stiff... nice retention and great meringue lacing. It’s yeasty-haze straw lemon appearance goes well with the head. The nose was clean, with only a trace of bouquet, possibly some wheat. Immediate vivacious lemony citrus, with some wheat and a lightly dry-hopped back palate. The carbonation is perfect for the style, and the mouthfeel is light, crisp and refreshing. This is really not bad, especially for a summer brew to cleanse the palate and quench thirst... would make an excellent session beer. I’m not sure why the other ratings aren’t quite as high, but then again I’m the first one rating this under the "Trophy Lager" name. It may have undergone some changes over the past several months.

Can from turdferguson: Poured a hazy gold with a white head. Aroma, pale malts, some bready notes, grassy. Flavor, crisp pale malts, some herbal notes, grassy with some yeast in there as well. Very nice pale lager. I was pleased.
