Scopey (12231) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2016
Bottle at level 42, thanks to Colin. It pours clear gold with a thick white head. The aroma is fresh, bready malts, grain, cereal, mild sweetness and a hint of citrus peel. The taste is soft, sweet, buttered white bread, general fruitiness, cereal and graininess. Medium body and moderate, foamy carbonation. Pretty alright, but I was hoping from a bit more from these guys.

MrTipple (3552) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2016
Grain and cereal malts, light citrus fruits. Hazy, pale gold, small, frothy, white head. Light bitter. Sweet grain malts coming up quickly, bread, caramel, soft carbonation, bitterness returns in the average long, slightly dry finish, some citrus fruits again. Decent California Common, but nothing too crazy. Keg at the brewpub, Decorah, IA.

minutemat (4147) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2016
Can from Beer Gonzo. Pours a misty gold, medium receding white head. Nice sweet aroma. Taste is smooth, sweet, reminiscent of a sweet Bavarian helles. Sweet fruity notes emerge more as it warms. Verges towards overly sweet, but just about remains in the moreish, drinkably flavoursome camp. I liked this.

skortila (5238) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 6, 2016
Canned. 50cl sample. The aroma has grass, herbal tones, light grain. Clear, golden coloured beer with a thin, white head. The taste is is light bitter, bit grainy sweet and has herbal hops. Easy drinking beer. But rather boring.

AWISLguy (2458) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 28, 2016
12oz bottle from the BrookFalls Discount singles rack. Light. Slightly corn-y. Slightly fruity. Lemon. Very easy drinker. Light and smooth. Shrug? Nothing more to it than that, however. 11.3

ctipping (1256) - Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2016
650 mL bottle. Originally reviewed 7/16/2014.Clear golden body. Small white head. Very thin collar. Smell has pilsner malt. Mild spicy hop. Malty more than hoppy. Taste has the slightest bit of an earthy and spicy hop. Pilsner malt lends quite a bit of sweetness. Very little hop bite. Pretty crisp and light. Well carbonated. Flavorful for a lager. Very malty though. I’d like a little bit of hop bite.
