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.

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 isnt bad at all. Also, not bad for a flagship beer. If I lived in Omaha, though, Id pick most Boulevard beers over this as a go-to beer, for probably less money as well.

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!

portableparty (2303) - 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!

Darkmagus82 (2302) - - JUL 25, 2014
Transfer from BA review on 8-6-12 - Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance The beer pours an orange/ amber color with a one finger off white head. The head faded over a moderate amount of time to give a light amount of lacing. Smell The aroma was heavy of grain and bread. It has a big biscuit and dark wheat bread smell. Mixed with these aromas are notes of light caramel and some floral and earthy hop. Taste The taste begins big of a biscuit and caramel sweet flavor. As it advances some flavors of wheat and earthy hop meet the tongue. These flavors overall create a smooth taste and take the flavor to the end where they are met with a very light floral and pine hop which when combine with the caramel and biscuit take the taste to the end where they leave a nice slightly bitter flavor to linger on the tongue.. Mouthfeel The body of the beer is on the lighter side with a slightly higher then average carbonation level. The higher carbonation makes for a good refreshing beer. Overall A easy drinking fairly nice flavor profile makes for a decent session beer. Not bad, but nothing to go out of your way for.

illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 14, 2011
Bottle from Frugal MacDoogal. Pours pale amber with a dissipating ivory head. Aroma of cereal and fruity esters. Light bodied with average carbonation, and perhaps a little watery in texture. Very pale malt backbone that is a mix of caramel, pils, and toasted malts. Subtle but detectable hop bitterness brings this into balance. Actually a decent beer to pair with hearty food when you want to go lighter. By itself, not so exciting.

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 (2234) - 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.
