I was both suprised and impressed with this brew. It suprised me because I didnt imagine the beer to be so full flavored, and it impressed me because it was a nicer tasting lager then imagined. Dark golden colour, full fluffy white head. Fruity aroma with pleasent biscuity malts on the palate and very rich taste.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 26, 2008
12oz bottle. Poured a light orange color with a white head that reduced over a minute or so. Aroma was of wet dog and grass. Or, if you prefer, a dog that has rolled around in wet grass. Either way, it didnt smell particularly good. There was also a whiff of apple juice. Light body and slightly sweet up front with a little bitterness at the end. Tasted of watered down toffee, dilute apple juice, and grass. Not a particularly strong beer on any front.

ApisAles (1575) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Pours a nice golden color with a bit of fizzy head. Had this after I had a Special Export and the two beers are miles apart. Nice hop malt balance and very crisp flavor. Nothing spectacular, but if youre on the lookout for a nice pale lager, this is a great choice. Fantastic lawn mower beer.

ChainGangGuy (4882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, orangey body with a tired, tiny, white head. Smell: Some hints of floral and spice and pale malt -- all in all, its pretty basic. Taste: Pale maltiness with just a hint of sweetness. Floral, spicy hops. Taste of sour graininess. Medium hop bitterness lingers into the finish. Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: No thanks.

Pours a golden honey color with a white head. Aroma is honey, grain, malt, and some spicy hops. Flavor is malts, grain, and a slight bitter finish.

ATLBeerDog (280) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 3, 2008
Pours light amber with a slight head and slight lacing. Very under carbonated. Slight smells of malts and light hops. Weak flavor not worth my time or money.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Bottled. Poured a clear, cool shade of light-medium orange with a short cap of white head. The aroma was soft with some caramel and light fruits represented.. light floral accents.. pleasant. The flavor had sweet pale and caramel with fainter light fruits and a bit of orange.. honey and light adjuncts on the finish.. rather tasty. Lighter-bodied with OK balance.. creamy carbonation and a lightly bitter finish.. refreshing.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 29, 2007
This pours a deep golden body with a slender, vanishing fizzy head. It has a grainy aroma, sweet with the distracting smell of candy corn. It has a bready malt flavor with a bit of caramel and a quiet metallic bitterness. Drinkable, but Im glad I did a single bottle purchase.
