Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - MAY 8, 2007
12oz. bottle. Fairly slight on aroma, featuring just a hint of crackery, grainy malt and grassy, floral hop, perhaps a touch of yeast to be found as well. Medium golden color with a fine, lasting, off-white head. Flavor is seemingly equally slight, again a faint wash of malt grains and almost imperceptible sweetness, combined with a modest amount of green, spicy hop flavor and bitterness. Finish is appropriately crisp and dry. Effervescent, sharp and active on the palate with a light-medium body. Not much to this one; makes a pleasant thirst quencher.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - MAY 7, 2007
Pours a darl gold with a thick white head. Slightly sour malt aroma. Earthy, grainy, sour sweet tang in the taste department. Not very enjoyable. Thick mouthfeel. Bitter finish. Ill slip past this one next time.

JPDIPSO (6093) - Wauwatosa, USA - MAY 3, 2007
Somewhat hazy dark golden liquid with a small, somewhat diminishing off-white head. Mild aromas with some pale malt, mild orange citrus and floral hops. Mild caramel flavors with a lightly herbal middle (wintergreen). Fairly thick in feel. Some flavors that remind me of eating a day old doughnut. Dryer finish with just a hint of herbal hops.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - APR 27, 2007
Bottle, Lager Glass. light aroma a bit of light sweet malts, no hop presence. Taste is pretty light fairly watery, nothing special here at all. Ill be honest for a premium lager its pretty decent a slight bitter and dry finish. Not too bad.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7489) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2007
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a caramel-amber color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma was faintly malty but nothing stood out. The flavor was light tangy malts with a hint of floral and fruity hops. There was a light sour nutty undertone.

thedm (6045) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 1, 2007
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a transparent orange brown colored body and a fair lacing. The aroma was hoppy malty and brown malt. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of hops and brown malt. A decent one but not one that I would consider buying again.

BeerandBlues2 (12835) - Escondido, California, USA - MAR 29, 2007
Bottle. Pours sparkling orange with spare rocky white head, mostly lasting, spare head. Aroma is heavy malt (caramel, nutty), light hops (grass), average yeast (dough) with notes of apple, dates and honey. Light bodied, sticky texture, average carbonation and a chalky finish. Moderate sweetness, light acidity and bitterness.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - MAR 28, 2007
From a 12 oz. bottle with a short blurb on the neck label, no freshness date, sampled at a cooler cellar temperature in a lager glass. Poured a clear golden hued amber with a foamy white head that settled into a thin creamy lacing, small amount of sticking. Aromas of sweet dusty grainy malts, lager yeast and a light spiciness. Good, even carbonation and a malty crisp, dry, smooth medium mouthfeel. A pleasant lager taste, sweet grain bready with a light pinch of sugar, a soft lemon flavor, a touch of spiciness without much bitter, and a dry husky, sweet, spicy malty finish, pretty neat and clean. Not a bad lager, tasty on rainy, humid, warm midwestern spring day.

heemer77 (5344) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 28, 2007
From a bottle. The body was dark gold with a light khaki head. The aroma was spicy bell pepper and some potatoes. The taste was bitter grass with some spice at the end. The mouthfeel was fairly full. A decent lager.
