COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
German brewers transplanted to America found themselves in a climate much hotter than they were used to. They responded to the demand for ever lighter and drier beers by incorporating adjunct grains in the mash. Corn (maize) was an obvious candidate because of its wide-spread availability. Our American-style lager uses a 25% corn mash to give the finished beer an especially light body. Bavarian lager yeast working at low temperatures produces a clean, bright flavor. Served ice cold and well carbonated, it goes great with hot dogs and volleyball.

on tap in Princeton 7/21/2007. Although I don’t do so all of the time, I decided to score this beer on style. Clear golden in color with a moderate off white head. Aroma is sweet pale malt/grain and corn with very light foral hops notes. Taste is very light on the malt, with some cereal grains, light notes of pale malt and corn. Finishes lightly bitter. Even with the corn, this beer was light, clean, crisp and refreshing. Brewed flawlessy to style, way above any BMC pale lager that I have had. I would recommend this to the macro crowd and I have no doubt they would enjoy it a heck of alot more than what they are currently drinking.

on tap-pours a white head with yellow color. Aroma is grain, secondary hops. Taste follows, good flat hops bite. OK carbonation.

Tasted with the beer and cheese pairing. Admittedly this is not a favorite style for me, but I did enjoy it. I made the mistake of having a stout before the pairing and realized my senses were a bit off. The hops actually came through a bit more than expected, but again from a tainted palette. Residual sugars abound, corn chips, sweet finish. Not bad, but not inspiring

Poured cloudy golden with a foamy white head. Aroma had corn and not much else. Rather simplistic taste but not unpleasant.

A pretty standard clean lager. A lot better than most of the stuff out there touting itself as "American Lager". It was poured with a fizzy head, golden in color. Pretty dry and clean in both flavor and finish. I had to say this one is pretty good.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - AUG 1, 2004
Very pale and clear, with a white head. Corny malt aroma. Crips corny malt flavor with some hops. More character than a macro, and well done.

07.21.04 Princeton. Pale with webby head. Distinctive corn aroma and some cardboardy hops. Tastes like an American lager all right. At least Triumph has the decency to label this beer for what it is without trying to play it off as something special.

freekyp (1483) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 19, 2004
Lightly malty nose wafts heavily above this light yellow brew. Tencious white head with excellent lacing. Light mouthfeel with a slightly slick characteristic. Malty throughout with a dusty character. A shot of honeyish sweetness peeks out at the finish. Bitterness is light and rides on the top of the entire tasting.

Pretty average lager, nothing too special besides a little bit more head than your sterotypical American style lager, kept a very nice lacy head throughout the pint, good balance
