It arrived in a tall pilsner type glass. About a half finger of head on a golden, clear colored body with hardly a bubble rising up.
The aroma is only a faint grain smell.
The taste has a lager maltiness, quick bitterness in the middle with a short finish.
It has lower carbonation and medium body.
The bitterness is distinctive. A pretty good lager.
On tap @ Auburn Alehouse. Clear pale golden pour with a white head. Light malt nose and a fair amount of cereal. Somewhat grainy and a bit of ester quality. Pretty dry on the tongue, though there is a fair bit of corn and cereal quality. Mild grass and some apple. Chuggable. slowrunner77 (12051) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 18, 2014
this is a style i can usually skip, and this one is no exception. Nothing nasty about it, just incredibly boring and no pleasing aspects either. If you can substitute for this in a taster, do it."

Draft at Brewpub. Light corn and sweetness in the nose. Very clear, light yellow pour. Taste is sweet with a light bitterness. Sweet and creamy with just a light slickness on the tongue. ok I guess. Masterkush7 (580) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 2, 2013
A very nice, easy to quaff lager and started the tasting out on a nice note. Nothing over the top, just a clean, crisp, easy drinking lager. Light grassy notes, a bit of bread/yeast in the aroma. Light sweetness, and some herby bitterness, but just really clean. marcus (10232) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 10, 2010
On tap at the brewery. Pours clear yellow with a thin white head and almost no aroma. It’s a run of the mill lager with a thin caramel malt flavor and a bit of carbonation. GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - JAN 6, 2010
