DavefromChicago (201) - Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2002
On tap in an "Irish Pub." Too carbonated, though no head. Yellow-gold color. Very ordinary, but a potential session beer. Dry, light-bodied, well-hopped with a decent bittersweet lager quality. Safe, bland macrobrew and drinkable in quantity, but...seek out better stuff.

Pours pale gold, clear, pillowy head - rather meh, but at least it doesn’t look cheap. Aroma is very corny and grainy... sweet, damp, kinda tinny - not a fan. Taste has a lightly creamy quality to it; grain bill is prominent - clean and bready malts, not a lot of hops but slight floral, herbal presence is in the finish. Mouthfeel is surprisingly hefty and satisfying. Certainly a better-than-average pale lager, but keep your expectations in check.

Keg draught at pub in Derry. A very tinny lager, not much to add apart from that.

Shot (496) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - NOV 11, 2016
Pours gold with a one-inch white head. Substantial cling. Aromas of cut grass, a bit of citrus, and a metallic tone. Flavors are cut grass, bitter citrus, slight herbal notes and a bit of a metallic flavor. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Actually, not a bad beer, considering.
