Draft at GABF. I was very excited when I saw this one, just because you dont see many pre-pro lagers out there. Pours a gold with stiff white head. Nose is vegetal, cabbage and maize. Some faint herbal hop notes come through, but the DMS is a bit offputting. On tasting, its a bit cleaner, but still vegetal with maize being a driving component. Bitterness works but the hops that they are proud of seems really restrained. I dunno, maybe a bad batch?

Bottle. Pours a golden color with white head. Grainy, honey, grassy flavors. Alright beer, not bad for a micro lager.

Not a bad beer with a lot of qualities, but none that seem hoppy per se. Appearance, body, & aroma are all ok, but nothing to write home about.

tomer (3278) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JUL 30, 2011
Bottle, smallish head, murky darkish orange colour, funky aroma of sour cabbage and sewer, strong overpowering vinrgar flavour leaving nothing behind. This brew is infected, real shame i dont have another one to try.

12oz. bottle. Hey,my Dads catching on, hes putting stuff like this in his fridge. Ive learned that Pre-Pro beers were first to use corn as an adjunct, but this one is all malt. And the malt shows up in the nose and taste. Light brown color of a Pre-Pilsener, too, reminded me of a Yuengling. Full on malt taste, with the spice of mainly German hops, followed by those piny American types. I may be rating this higher than others, but I think this is a fine "common" lager with no flaws.

Dark copper, off white cover. Aroma is corny, a bit of tin, caramel sweetness. The taste is sweeter, candy, caramel, light malt husks, a bit of corn.

unclemike (2987) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle. Poured a clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus and earthy aroma. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2011 Amber color with a beige head. A malty caramel aroma. Flavor is malty with some caramel notes. Im into comparing beers tonight so this is Yuengling like. Overall this is a pretty good beer for a session lager.

[Bottle] Pours a clear orange color with a nice cap of beige head. Sweet molasses and caramel nose. Some grainy notes in there as well. Moderately malty taste includes a bit of citrus and mild hoppy finish. Light metal, but overall it tasted pretty clean. Average mouthfeel/palate. I didnt think this was too bad. I actually think it would make a good transition beer for people that arent into craft beer.
