Not a bad beer at all, but average. Better than I expected. I got it as a single at Trader Joes, at a good price. I would drink it agin for the price. It had a nice hop flavor.

Keg: Hazy yellowy golden appearance. moderate head formation. Cleanish, pear, malt aroma. Sweet fruity hop palate, decent structure and body, fair hop bitterness in the finish. Nothing special going on but better than you average lager.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - OCT 25, 2004
Clear, light golden color with a small to moderate head. Decent staying power. Grainy sweet nose and flavor, with a hardly noticable hop fruitiness. Light bitterness on the finish. Decent, enjoyable.

Bottle. Pours clear yellow golden with a large white head that diminishes mostly. Aroma is lightly fruity malts, light hops. Quite sweet, bit of honey, citrus and a spicy hop finish. Nice mouthfeel, medium body with a prickly/creamy carbonation. Not your typical lager, pale ale characteristics are noticible. Maybe the fact that this is my first beer in a month has something to do with my higher than average rating. Will re-rate somewhere down the line.

Pours pale yellow in color. Smells is dominated by grain and hops. Strongly sweet, with a fairly malty flavor. Has a bit of fruitiness as well. Aftertaste has a lingering bitter flavor. This is not a bad brew, nothing special. I would say that for a pale lager it is pretty good.

omhper (19975) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2004
Bottled, thanks marbles! Golden colour, rich head. Dry, malty and fruity. Fairly hoppy with some toffee and a lightly citric, fairly bitter finish. I’d say this is a dortmunder.

DarkElf (3035) - La Jolla, California, USA - AUG 5, 2004
(12 oz bottle) With how pale yellow this beer is, I was expecting it to be flavorless and watery, but this is pretty much a medium bodied beer with a surprisingly evident fresh, spicy hops presence that gets stronger and more bitter toward the finish; The malt has a definite corn flavor and is mildly sweet; There’s a little citrus and hops going on in the nose, but the rest is unidentifiable; Visually, this beer resembles a Corona, being pale yellow and completely clear; White head actually has fairly decent retention, and it sticks to the glass, leaving a fair amount of lacing

Light gold color. Medium head. Aroma is grassy, fruity and sweet. A light bodied lager. Malts are fruity and fairly sweet. Hops are slightly spicy, I guess. VERY sweet, nearly cloying in its sweetness. There is a touch of hops at the finish. The rest of the taste is wet cardboard, corn and grain that is masked by its sweetness. Barely drinkable. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is sweet.
