UPDATED: JAN 17, 2012 Bottle. Pours a clear gold with fizzy white head. Aroma of light grain with subtle mild hop. Flavor is nice and clean with well balanced flavors of grainy malt and nice mild, light citric hop. Light body with medium-high carbonation....overall, I could drink this every day!

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Was in the mood for a lager last night, so I drank a bottle that I had gotten from somewhere. Pours pale blond with thin head. Aroma of hay and metal. Minimal bitterness and a little bit sour. Body was thin and mostly flat. Don’t know if this was a bad batch or what. Frankly, I’d have preferred a can of Coors Light.

felt like it tasted no different than a miller lite. clear yellow color, almost too filtered. tasted like beer-flavored water, had no hop or bite whatsoever.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a bright, clear yellow/light gold, with moderate white head about an inch thick. Retains for a few minutes, then quickly vanishes, leaving no lacing. Typical weak lager appearance.
My nose detects scents of lemon,citrus, grains and light malt. A little weird, but has character.
Mouth absorbs faint traces of malt and graininess. A slight acidic and bitter citrus-like edge near the end of tasting. probably from hops. Fairly light-bodied, with your typical lager high carbonation.
As you may know I am generally not a fan of plain ol’ lagers(the non-pilsener and non-Oktoberfest kind), so I did not expect much from this. That said, it is what it is. Not supposed to be extraordinary, just an everyday-type session brew. It’s rather average at that, because I know there’s better offerings in this style out there.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: hay colored, slightly hazy, with a short, fizzy vanishing white head. Aroma: grass, hay, light and sweet grains, a hint of lemon. Taste: a little bread, some grass, and a hint of floral hops. Finish: short, soft, and clean. Notes: A perfectly acceptable lager, but perfectly inconspicuous as well. I love a good lager, but there just wasn’t a lot to this one. It was about a month past the expiration date, so maybe I’ll try it again at some point.

355ml bottle (GBBF2011)
Honey and pilsner malt aroma. Bitter bite, some grassiness. White pepper finish. Tasty enough for a lager, but still a bit boring.
