Looks good. Clear gold with white head. Aroma is fresh hay with a background of urine that ruins it. Taste is not as bad but still does nothing for me.

adnielsen (9134) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Bottle @ Greg’s house up in the Midwest. Pours a clear golden appearance with a thin white head. Corn, grainy, grassy aroma. Vanilla, light banana, herbal flavor. Ok.

AirForceHops (3225) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 2, 2013
12 oz. bottle from Trader Joe’s, Portsmouth, NH for a price of $1.17. Clear gold color in a lager glass. Highly carbonated. Nose is light caramel malt. Taste is pils malts, lager yeast notes and straw. It has a mineral water flavor in the finish. Not really bad for a plain lager. Pretty hard to beat the price.

brokensail (11008) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Clear golden pour with a white head. Nose is a little bit grainy and corny. Sweet malt, sugar, yeast, and some apple esters. Light sulfur, floral hops, spice, and grass. The flavor is kind of sulfury and maybe a touch of metal on the finish. Sweet grain, corn, and bread. Light biscuit, grass, floral hops, and hints of yeast and apple esters.

Aubrey (3433) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 14, 2013
Clear gold. Multi-sized bubbles in the head; faded fast. Rounded sweetness (honey) and somewhat fruity (pear). Herbal, earthy, wholesome. Only mildly bitter; not quite enough. Not necessarily bad, but kind of vapid and unexciting.

SudsMcDuff (5844) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - JAN 25, 2013
still a couple months left on this and it has a dark ring at the bottom of the bottle, not good right out of the gates .. . wet hay and 4 day old used grain in a dumpster .. . weak mouth .. medium agonizing finish .. . would have expected a touch more from these guys, but this was bad .. . . my cat probably eats more cheese in a year than you eat in a lifetime

Pours golden with a thin fully receding white head. Notes of biscuit, pils malt, light metallic, buttery. Medium boided with soft carbonation.

thornecb (4423) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Pours light gold into a shaker. Bright white head with good retention recedes leaving spider lacing. Caramel and bread aromas. Dry with sweet hay and caramel upfront turning to earthy sourdough before the mildly bitter finish.

nearbeer (3750) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 20, 2012
12 oz. Clear golden with a lasting ring of cream. Nose is honey, creamed corn and dried grass. Taste is the same with some crisp hay and a dry grassy and grain finish. Near-medium body is sweet and has light medium carbonation. Sucks as a Bohemian Pilsner, and pretty much sucks as any other style besides corn beer.

They are serious about the aroma and appearance for a lager. If I new nothing about beer this could easily pass for an ale. Lots of flavor, no metallic-ness. Fruit flavors and a solid malt really support this beer. I see that I am about to hit a Pilsner with a 3, which should put it in the top 90%, but as a beverage, it all adds up. I’m confused.
