UPDATED: JAN 24, 2014 Draft. Clear yellow, filtered. Nose is minimally hoppy but clean and bright. Some minimal sulphur/chemical scents. lemon sweetness to the hops, fresh and mild corn syrup nose. Crisp, wet, perfectly clean with a properly full body and a sharp and bright fullness to the malt body. well made, well lagered. Better than many of the ales I found around Seattle on draft. love it. I could drink this all day every day. robforbes (2261) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2009
pours a pale yellow with a thin white head, and a very good lacing.
smell of grain, corn, few malts, some hops, and a touch of citrus in the back.
taste is thick, corn syrip, grain, some malt, and ends a little dry.
overall not bad for a pale lager which is not my favorite style. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2009
Draft at Beveridge Place Pub. Pours crystal clear light golden with a dense and creamy but short-lived platinum blonde head. Nice nutty and wet-grass-y nose. Creamy light body, carb is out of the way. Lemon, wet grass, wet leaves, and nuts on the mid-palate. Long nutty finish. BuckeyeBoy (8281) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 2, 2009

On tap @ the brewpub. Pours clear gold with bright white head and nice lacing. The mild aroma contains floral hops and some mild graininess and not much else. At times I had a difficult time smelling anything at all out of the glass. It has a solid lager flavor with sweet to mildly grainy maltiness balanced by chewy noble type floral and spicy hops. Nice session brew. italianjohn (3225) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2008

Sampled at Maritime Pacific in Seattle, WA--Poured a typical straw yellow body with a medium white head. Grainy, semi-sweet biscuity nose. Lightly carbonated. Slightly lemony, but mostly just "whatever." Sessionable and zesty with a minor hops finish. Skyview (6093) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 24, 2008
On draught at the Jolly Roger brewery/taproom grill in suburban Seattle, WA. Pours a clear golden pale brew with a fast dissolving white head that started large and then that leaves behind a thin film and white ring with some spotty lacing. Aroma of golden grain malt, citrus zest, with a touch of mild yeast. Taste is light to medium bodied, lightly carbonated with flavors of golden grain malt, some lemon zest, and a touch of Ivory soap. Finish is mildly bitter with some citrus zest and a pale ale hop aftertaste. VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - MAY 5, 2008
Has a bicuity baked bread grassy nose, some fruitiness. Gold color, decent head. Good chewy malt sweetness, balanced by a somewhat complex spicy hop bitterness. Nice carbonation, easy drinking and crisp--but it really delivers with some complexity. The longer than expected finish is something I can only describe as simply "tasty". This is a very easy drinking beer that has more to it than your typical American Pale Lager. In fact, this might be one of the best "neo" American Pale Lagers made. Really enjoyable easy drinking beer for any occasion.
