I was pleasantly surprised by this lager. It had a very rounded taste to it. Could easily sit around and drink a few of these.

biggcb (464) - Harleysville, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2009
On tap. Pours a light amber color with a thin head. Aroma of dough, a trace of malts and a smattering of citrus notes. Flavor is water-down malts, a little sweetness (honey?) and some bread. Watery and thin. Very average at best.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2009
at brewpub for a beer dinner event. Poured lightly cloudy golden with a hue of amber and a quickly diminishing white head. Aroma was of weak malt, and citrus. Tastes of slightly sweet caramel malt, with a pretty thin body. not much to it.

bubbleflubber (1832) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAR 23, 2008
On draught at brewer. Amber pour with light lace. The nose is metallic (other users are spot on with that). The watery mouthfeel offers some lightly sweet caramel malt, but that’s about it. There’s a lightly bitter back finish. It’s highly boring and underdone. Not very impressive.

Light bronze with ring of head. Easy drinking, lightly sweet. Not a style favorite, but okay.

TomDecapolis (4477) - Milton, Delaware, USA - NOV 3, 2007
Pours a lightly hazy golden with a touch of amber and a smaller off white head. Aroma of metallic, a touch of caramel, some hops. Flavor of the same...actually a lot like Yuengling Lager.
