12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a mildly hazy straw color. The head billows vibrantly at three fingers high, with a white shade. Retention isnít fantastic, but the lacing it leaves behind is fairly prevalent. S: Rather simplistic, as expected. Pale malts help back up mild hops, seemingly both German (grassy, sulfury) and íMerican (herbal, citrusy) in their qualities. Serviceable, no more, no less. T: Like I said, simple. Itís little more than pale malts and a kiss of hoppiness. To be fair, there hops arenít entirely one note, hitting a middle ground between grassy noble and citrusy íMerican flavors. There isnít a ton of flavor, but itís not quite íwateryí. M: Heavy and viscous. No wait, I meant light and crisp. Itís a bit too tingly and astringent in feel, though. High carbonation is expected, making it very easy to drink. O: This is far more conducive to simple, mindless drinking than sitting down and reviewing it - because really, there isnít much to review here. Still, quite decent for a 4% lager.

cheap (3967) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2014
High hopes for this bottle. Looks like any other pale lager with a decent head that does not fade. Smell is a little metallic. Not sure if this is really a pale lager, probably a little more developed compared to cheap American lagers. Yes, more like a pils or a premium lager. In addition to its refreshing taste there is this medium building old country pilsner thing happening in there. Finish is just that, medium length pils bite in back of throat. Though better in taste than most cheap pale lagers, does not have the mild civility so common in the better American pale lagers.

From a bottle. Pours hazy bright yellow gold with a bubbly, frothy white head. Light taste of cereal malt, grass, lemon zest. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like cereal malt, corn, lemon zest

sonnycheeba (3357) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours mostly clear pale gold with frothy white head. Aroma is cereal malts, faint grassiness, faint citrus, and faint lager yeast esters. Flavor is dry malts, light hop bitterness, light fruit esters, and faint toast; dry finish. Light/medium body and medium carbonation.

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Just average, nothing special here. Satisfies enough for a hot summer day.

jgb9348 (4652) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Super clear golden coloured body with a light copper glow and a rich, thick, four centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of pale malt, alcohol, grass and quite a bit of funk noticeable - interesting and quite strong. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong malty flavour with some grain, cereal and medicine at first and some subdued alcohol and sweet flavours right afterwards all ending in a tannic hit of alcohol. Aftertaste is muted at best and showing funky malt and yeast at worst - not great. Overall, a decent beer with some subdued (Good) flavours and some overt (not so good) tastes noticeable that make it drinkable, but not worth searching out for. I sampled this twelve ounce stubby bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Arlington (Clarendon), Virginia on 04-May-2014 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 01-June-2014.

hfmejias (671) - Dover, Delaware, USA - MAY 18, 2014
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear, yellow with a frothy white head, lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast and grain. Taste is consistent, a tad bitter from hops; but other than that nothing extraordinary. Nice pale lager, easy to drink, great on hot summer days.

Finhead (1151) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - APR 23, 2014
Very pale yellow with a white head. The aroma was disgusting. It smells like cheese and soggy diapers. It has a light, thin body with average carbonation. The taste is mildly bitter with a quick, clean finish. The aroma really killed this beer for me, but that wasnít the only downfall.

DiarmaidBHK (3370) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2013
Bottle from Whole foods SLC. Pours clear yellow with a thin white head. Not much on the nose. Not much on the tongue either except for a slight citrus note. Finishes clean. Eh!

This one smells really strong but lacks in taste. Very much a pale ale and pours light yellow like one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
