A- Caramel, malts, grains.
A- Copper color, clear liquid, white head.
T- Caramel, malty, grains, cereal.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, smooth finish.
O- A pretty standard tasting lager. Nothing special about it. Not horrible by any means, but don’t expect to be impressed. jinroh (2448) - ESTONIA - MAY 6, 2016
Poured amber, no carbonation and no foam. Not really usual golden as other premium lagers have, but well, I guess lagers are still different. Aroma had some caramel and brisk malty grain character. Quite subtle. Taste caramelly, sort of what I could already understand from the colour. Otherwise quite watery body, simple and highly drinkable - word I am using not to say characterless. Volume beer, not bad but well, just not that interesting, had much better stuff from this brewery before. Beerona97 (2399) - Washington, USA - JUN 3, 2011
Pours clear gold. Aroma of fruit and grain. Pretty basic but way better than BMC. portableparty (2398) - 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! zebra (2384) - Illinois, USA - APR 8, 2012
mine tastes a little sour, too. i wonder what went wrong. hope they get this figured out.
illinismitty (2377) - 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. csaso (2361) - Missouri, USA - DEC 4, 2011
Tap - small foamy head, medium amber color, very swet malty aroma and flavor Leafs93 (2343) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Pours gold with a white head. Aroma is citrus, earthy and grass. Taste is bittersweet. Medium bodied with soft carbonation and slick texture. Sessionable and just interesting enough.

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!
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.
