Bottle in the USA. Pours clear yellow with a fine, white foam head. Mostly cereal in the nose. Medium sweet flavor, all cereal grains, faint hay, white sugar. Light to medium body with average carbonation. Sweet finish with very light dryness, grains, more cereal. OK.

Rice is the adjunct here, it isn’t any worse than a budweiser, but that doesn’t make it good.

obguthr (3652) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Honey and hay aroma, a little shitty. Clear golden, thick white head. Grainy and quite shitty. Grapenut finish. Has flavor and is refreshing but is nothing special.

JaBier (4807) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2010
Bottle sample at the Hopsnobbery Collective "From Russia With Suds" tasting on 1/2/10. Semi-hazy yellow pour with a medium white head. Sweet malt aroma with some crisp hop. Flavor is about the same with a watery finish.

Dogbrick (7634) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 6, 2010
Sample at the "From Russia With Suds" tasting on 01/02/10: This beer is a hazy light yellow color with a thin and rocky off-white head that diminishes steadily. Thin sheet of lacing on the glass. Aroma of grainy malt and fruit. Light body with flavors of sweet malt, grain and mild hops. The finish is clean and fruity with a short malt aftertaste. Pretty boring all around.

Beerman6686 (4200) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2009
This one poured a clear yellow alsmot straw color with a white head. Aroma was corn and grassy not much aelse. Flavor was typical pale lager but nothing really offensive. Not good but more refreshing than the average of this style.

Nate (3648) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2009
Sampled at the ’09 RBPTE, courtesy of cheapdark. Light malt aroma and light hops, with a bit of corn aroma. Light yellow clear colorwith small frothy white diminishing head. Light thin body with average carbonation. Fairly standard pale lager taste with a bit of corn and light bitter finish.

Sonicdescent (384) - Donora, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2009
Scent reminded me of a Heiney (beer not body part) that hadn’t been skunked. Fizzy and yellow in the pour, not much going on there. Tiny hop bite in the taste, refreshing.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4831) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2009
sampled from a 16 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright yellow-golden color with a large white head. The aroma was sweet, tangy, lightly fruity and a bit tart. The flavor was sour, nutty and tart with a touch of caramel and a long tart finish. Better than I expected.
