maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 14, 2006
Slightly hazy pale golden color with a thin frothy white head. Somewhat sweet aroma, hints of apple. Sweet flavor, hints of apple with some grain in the aftertaste.

f252863 (1) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAR 13, 2006 does not count
Delightful aroma, light, slightly bitter taste, great aftertaste, goes down smooth, like the .5 liter bottle size.

Bottled. This pours a cloudy light yellow with only a little head. It has an aroma of sweet hops and a taste that matches. Thin and generally unimpressive.

ATOmemphis (200) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - MAR 5, 2006
Really light yellow/clear. Good small head that stayed. Hoppier smell. A little breadsy note. Quite sweet. To me, its still a pale lager, and its not very strong...

Likeburning (149) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - MAR 5, 2006
Clear light yellow lager color. The aroma was hoppier and sweeter than expected for a pale lager. A light to medium body that could be considered heavy for a PL. So far, the best Pale Lager Iíve ahd.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2006
This beer offers a sweet but mildly skunky aroma. It is a translucent golden solution with a decent white head. This bitter beer enters the mouth thin and leaves a slight fruit tingle on the tongue.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2006
The bottle said beer only on it, looks like someone thought it was the john, pours yellow with a one finger thick white head quickly leaving, ill send you a postcard, goodbye disapating into a urine yellow color. Aroma of hay straight from the lions pen, flavor almost non-existant slight sweetness, blah ill pass on another.

[bottle from peckhams] dusty, strawish aroma. thin body, a little hop dryness in the finish.

DarkElf (3051) - La Jolla, California, USA - FEB 27, 2006
(500 ml bottle: $3.49 at BevMo in La Jolla, CA) Another African pale lager with a 1-year shelf life, this bottle states "MFG 31-May-05, EXP 31-May-06". But I imagine the nine months since bottling have taken their toll as cardboard is a central flavor component in this beer. Lightly sweet corn/grain maltiness and a mild bitterness do their best to refocus my attention away from the cardboard with only moderate and temporary success. Cardboard and grain in the nose as well. Light bodied but not watery, well-carbonated but not burpy, neither clean nor crisp, and not really all that refreshing either. Medium straw in color with just a touch of haziness. An inch of bubbly white head forms on the pour and shows solid retention and an acceptable amount of patchy lacing. Take away the cardboard and this would be too awful, but at least with this bottle, this isnít even remotely enjoyable, and wow, $3.49 a bottle is absolutely insane.

Pours a nice light golden yellow. Aromas of hops, malts. Taste is crisp with a nice mellow hop flavor.
