Surprisingly heady. Very pale yellow. This is actually a bit funkier and less tasty than the light. Pershing (567) - Garland, Texas, USA - DEC 20, 2011
Pours pale yellow with a decent white head. Flower aroma with some malt. Thin mouthfeel with a fair amount of carbonation.. Clean smooth finish. Much better than the macros out there. Excellent session brew. JoeAgain (70) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 19, 2011
At just under eight bucks a 12 pack at Whole Foods Market, I really wasn’t expecting too much. I could tell from the carton that it was brewed in Rochester, NY, so I assumed it was by Genesee, only under another name - aka brewed under license.
Beer poured a nice, sparkling clean yellow with a nice head that lasted pretty much to the bottom of the glass. Fairly good malt, hop aroma, with a slight honey background to it. Nice flavor, suprisingly clean without a sour note, sourishness being something ordinarily present in inexpensive beers.
If you’re expecting a quality beer to compete with the finest European lagers when you buy this, then you’ll probably be disappointed. But if you’re thinking it’ll be like a Pabst, Milwaukee’s Best, or a Bud, then you’ll probably be pleased. I found this beer worthy to try again.

Can thanks to bhensonb. Poured clear yellow with a white head. Aroma was fresh cut grass and bready. Flavor was light citrus and soft florals masked behind grain. Body was light and fizzy. bhensonb (15498) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 7, 2011
Can from the Folsom Whole Foods. Pours gold with a fizzy white head. Aroma is bready and very lightly grassy. Med minus body. Flavor is lightly bready, herby/grassy, and sort of gummy/paperish towards the end. Meh!

12-oz can at 47B with Andy and Streets. Pours straw with a whispy white head. Gets a point or two from me b/c there is a splotchy lacing on the glass. Aroma is kind of skunky but not bad. Does not taste as skunky as expected, and is actually kind of crisp, but there’s absolutely nothing to the palate. At least it’s not foul, though. marcus (10473) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 23, 2011

Pours a clear yellow with a thin, white head. It has a clean aroma of fresh pilsner malt. The taste, likewise, is of clean pilsner malt. It’s not that flavourful, but it’s a decent pale lager.
