2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy golden color with a large head. Malty. Ok hopping. Dry finish. Unremarkable but well done.
A pretty good lager? but it tasted more like a nut brown ale. Nice head, decent coloring. My only complaint was that there was some stuff settled on the bottom that I didn't expect. Braudog (6710) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2003
Acute clear yellow beer with puffy white head. Airy aroma. Malty, but real light. Sub-average lager. MainerInExile (41) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 9, 2003
A decent lager. Sweet and malty, with a sort of hoppy/tangy finish. One of the better lagers I've had, but this isn't my favorite style. DrunkAsASkunk (847) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - FEB 25, 2003
Call me crazy, but aside from the fact that this and the Green Flash Pale Ale have a lot in common, i actually like this malty lager. The aroma is all sweet maltiness...pure malt at its finest...nothing else..pure nose candy. It pours a light golden color with no head and a low carbonation level..very unimpressive. The taste is once again totally lopsided to the sweet malty side with something fruity sweet coming through, and a nice subtle, and i do mean subtle hop ending..slightly bitter, but very yummy. Not so complex mouthfeel...very straight-forward..little carbs, nice sweetness, good bittering coutnerpart in the end...nothing spectacular, but a wonderful session beer.

Insert generic craft-brewed golden lager rating here. "Slightly sweet with a subtle hop nose and dry finish. Better than BMC, but enjoyability is limited by the style." UnionMade (621) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 2, 2003
Clean golden amber, with a patchy crust of a white head. Smells very malty, with a slight nuttiness. Very smooth mouthfeel, with light carbonation. Initial taste is very rich and malty, with traces of hazelnut, cashew and caramel. The malts continue, but hops and a bit of yeastiness continue into the finish. Dry at the end, with a lingering maltiness. Somewhat like Wurzburger for octoberfest. Not a bad beer! Tastes good with my fat cat. Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 13, 2002
A somewhat hazy golden color, the head passive and white, the lace slim. Nose is malt, fresh, clean, and hints of citrus. Start is malt, lightly sweet, top is middling, the finish is potently acidic, sparsely hopped, bone dry aftertase. Drinkable beer, but not something that excites me or my taste buds. Ranks #971 on my current 1000 beer master list. JoeM500 (1908) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - NOV 6, 2002
Not much going on here. Nothing offensive or hint of cheap ingredients, but not much flavor. Probably best with a burger and straight out of the bottle. jaymobrown (1845) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 5, 2002
The head quickly disappates. A yellowish-golden color. Didn’t really find much in this lager. A fairly typical lager.
