I first thought I had tasted this brew last weekend at the Firestone picnic and I was most impressed.
Now I know it must have been the Double Barrel Ale or perhaps the Special Reserve. The tap said lager but now that I have tasted the real lager (bottle) it is clear the one on Saturday was marked incorrectly.
The lager tonight poured straw yellow with a small white head. The nose was faint but you did pick up a little hops. The first taste was slightly thin with some hops but without any malt at all. Finish was dry without any lingering taste.
This was sort of like a Heineken or another European pilsner.

Mediium gold with a tiny bit of white head. Yeasty malt aroma, with a malty flavor with the carbonation tingling your tongue like most lagers, but better flavor than the macro lagers. BückDich (5477) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 12, 2006
Draught at O’Briens: Clear yellow, no head or lacing.. The nose is lightly hoppy with some citrus malt qualities and a surprisingly chewy malt backdrop. The flavor is chewy and nicely malty too. It’s just the perfect level of citrus notes. Lots of character for a lager. Bockyhorsey (2638) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 16, 2006
Aroma was grainy and of corn. Goleden botdy color with white head. Flavor had a hevey feel like it was poured on wet cardboard or a wet towel and I had to make an effort to drink this one. Should be no need for effort while having a beer. Well it was wet and I drank it because I was thirsty now I’ll have to find one to quench the taste of this one.

Very light amber color well carbonated with a nice foamy head. Malty sweet aroma, earthy on the nose. Semi-sweet flavor, fairly well balanced, citrus and malt notes. Very quaffable. Not bad.

Bottle poured yellow with a small fizzy head.
Grassy malt aroma.
Flavor is grassy with sweeyt malty finish.
Basic micro swill. Almost a drain pour. SDalkoholic (2444) - Linda Vista, California, USA - AUG 26, 2005
On tap: Looked to be a straw gold but thin in its density. Small covering of film as a head. Aroma was faint and was virtually undetectable. Flavor was weak and showed to have a watered down flavor. I will pick up a single 12oz of this if i ever see it to re-rate. My notes were minimal on this. BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - AUG 12, 2005
Sort of Bud like. Bland and watery with lots of corn and grain flavor. Not really good, but not offensive, just bland. Odeed (1806) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUN 12, 2005
pours a murky macro yellow with a white head.its a bit thicker than your average lager over all but,not much here. bb (9790) - Alamo, California, USA - APR 22, 2005
Draft. Light golden with a low white head. Grassy/floral aroma/flavor. A little thin. Not much going on.
