Bottle from Total Wine. Pours a reddish amber with a light white head. Minimal carbonation. Not too bad, light finishing and a slight bite on the finish.

DocLock (11106) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2006
Bottle from Super Saver. Dark straw pour with minimal head. Aroma of pale malt, fruit, some hops. Tastes pale malty, with some vinous fruit notes, plus slight hopcitrus and honey. Medium to light palate heft. Not a bad lager by any means, but not a beer I’d stock in the DLBF (Doc Lock Beer Fridge).

Golden color with a thick white head. Aroma fo malt,grain and a bit of hops and yeast. Malty, smooth body. Crisp hop finish. A nice effort.

12 oz bottle. Pours a nice golden amber and white head. Hoppy and mild caramel malt aroma. Flavor is about as good as you will find for a “premium lager”, certainly at this price. Slightly spicy hops and caramel and clean finish with just a bit of bitterness. Sorta like a Heineken with hops was a thought that went through my mind once, and then the flavors changed. Nothing spectacular here, but I’d rather have this than most of the crap that’s served in bars around here. Total Wine, Jacksonville.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - AUG 20, 2006
I forgot i even had 3 bottles of this still hanging around,I’ve been on a long dry spell for medical reasons,but damn the Dr. i need to get back on the brew wagon and drink more.Makes me feel better then not.Nice golden/amber color,with a decent white head that was short lived but left a slight amount of lace behind.The aroma was caramel and malt with a slight sweetness coming through.The flavor was nothing special but easy to do.Malty,caramel taste with some mild sweetness in the beginning that changes to a mild bitter side in the end with a decent hop showing.Over all it’s nothng over the top but has a decent enough flavor to try a few more times.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - AUG 16, 2006
The best thing I thought about this beer was the color, which is one of the best looking lagers I think I’ve come across. A rich, deep amber color, decent conditioning and average head. Aroma is lightly malted, slightly metallic, yeasty and salty. Flavors weren’t really anything to get excited over, nor was it bad enough to bash. Rather boring on the palate, clean finish, no aftertaste. Good enough to quench the thirst, and easy enough on the wallet.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 8, 2006
12 oz bottle. Clear amber color with off white head. Big malty caramel and molasses nose and flavor with some sprucy hops. The powerful malt was a bit much for me.

2.9
Hangover (1145) - oxford, Georgia, USA - JUL 29, 2006
Clear golden pour with a frothy, but short lived white head. Aroma is heavy on grain and a few peppery hops with some mash/corn. Taste has some active carbonation with a nice bread/dough middle. Malty into the finish. Crisp finish. Kinda boring, but it’s not bad. I could knock a few of these down on draught I imagine.

2.9
OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2006
12oz bottle pours amber with a short offwhite head that faded pretty quick. Aromas of caramel malts, and some dough. A bit of spicy hops finishes off the nose. Flavor is malty at first. Caramel, and a little dough gives way to some slightly spicy hops on the finish. Body is smooth and fairly creamy for a lager. Not bad for the style
