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. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2011
[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 didn’t think this was too bad. I actually think it would make a good transition beer for people that aren’t into craft beer. Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAY 13, 2011
Bottle from Cavie. Light orange pour with a white head. Aroma is sour, lots and lots of corn, and steamed veggies. Taste is sour, a little citrus, and more corn. rdixon77 (2829) - Georgia, USA - JUN 29, 2016
Down the middle. Grainy, slightly sweet, mild
Hop flavors. Pretty easy drinker. iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - MAY 9, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2009 On tap @ the Crescent Moon. Clear amber with a small off-white head, fading to a film before long. Aroma of some toasted malts and old citrus hops. The flavor is fairly biscuity with a little caramel malts. Some citrusy hops are around as well. The finish is semi-dry with bitterness around a 3. Light prickly carbonation with a light body. For a pale lager, this isn’t bad at all. Also, not bad for a flagship beer. If I lived in Omaha, though, I’d pick most Boulevard beers over this as a go-to beer, for probably less money as well.

Dark amber. Effervescent. Poured in a Sam Adams glass, it looks like Sam Adams lager. Thx Arp for leaving this with me. Nothing great, nothing bad....nice safe lager. Some maltiness. Atom (2443) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 5, 2011
12oz bottle pours a clear orange with a white film of a head. Aroma of corn, grain, caramel, and a slight sourness and hop. Taste has some up front malty sweetness that turns into bitter yeast flavors, with hints of hops throughout. Interesting and very decent Lager. Beerona97 (2399) - Washington, USA - JUN 3, 2011
Pours clear gold. Aroma of fruit and grain. Pretty basic but way better than BMC. portableparty (2350) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2011
Bottle. Pours pale amber color with a thin white head that fades to a collar. Aroma grassy and grainy with a lemon scent. Taste is more malt and grain with grass too. Palate is thin and chaulky that finishes dry. Note a bad lager! GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - AUG 14, 2010
12oz bottle -
Aroma - very hard to pick-up any major aromas. Light malty grain, a little sulfur and a touch of apple juice.
Appearance - solid gold body, clear with sporadic bubbles coming up from the bottle. Head starts out about 3/4" thick, disipates to just a splatch of nothing really.
Taste - flavor is really clean, not much to hang your hat on. Kinda minerally tasting, light grass and a touch of sweet malt
Palate - light bodied, light carbonation...has a seltzer water kinda feel to it
Overall - a really nice standard lager. Not sure where the "pre-prohibition" claim/name comes in to play. No noticeable flaws, easy to drink. Big thanks to pfoxyjohn for sending me this one!
