12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a mostly clear dark gold with minimal head. Aroma of herbal hops and some light spice. Taste is light spicy hops. Light bodied with a thin texture. Fizzy carbonation and not much of a finish. overall, ok. Nothing really special here. Lemke10 (995) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Pours a very pale amber color. Weaker scent of wheat and malts. Definitely has a grainy taste to it with hints of lemon citrus. Very little texture that makes drinking this almost as easy as water. Not much taste and nothing special here. scottw86 (1179) - Maryland, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Poured a pale yellow color with a slight haze. Slightly caramel aroma with some light skunk and hops. Taste is pretty light with some sweet malts and not much else. Light floral hops. Ok. ben4321 (6735) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 29, 2012

Aroma: The nose is pale malts, some grains, fruity notes, honey, and some light hoppiness
Appearance: It pours a hazed golden-orange color with a small sheet of white head and some light lace
Flavor: The taste of this beer is a little bit sweet, somewhat grainy, and has a light bitterness to it
Palate: The body is fairly light as well, it has average-to-fizzy carbonation, and a slightly off mouthfeel
This one was not a favorite for me. Nothing about it was truly terrible, but it hardly stuck out in any way, shape, or form.
I’d pick it over some crappy adjunct lager, but it wasn’t really all that much better then a lot of those either. Not really a winner for me.
Bottle poured a hazy gold with a small lingering white head. Aromas of bread, earthiness, light fruittiness and light yeast. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread and a hint of fuittiness with a crisp finish.

Bottle from State Line. Pours gold with 1-finger white head that laces well. Nose is pale malt, honey, hops. Tastes crisp, with notes of honey, apricotty fruit, pale malt, and a smooth finish and decent complexity. This one is good. tone77 (256) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Pours a dark golden color. smell is sweet, some soap. taste is sweet, soapy, dry at the finish. Overall a flavor profile that I just don’t get. rondphoto (4494) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUN 17, 2012
I don’t understand the fuss about skunky flavor and poor quality - maybe the samples were old and had turned. Clear, active golden amber with persistent 1/4" head and good spider-web lace. Looks good. Taste is sweet caramel malt that grows through the palate until it is halted by light hopping. The balance is good, the taste works fine for a pils; no big deal, but easy drinking and comfortable. unclemike (3163) - Junction City Kansas, Kansas, USA - APR 28, 2012
The aroma has malt, yeast, and herbal hops. The appearance is pale gold with a fairly large sudsy head. The flavor is like corn and paper with light astringent hops. The palate is thin and typical for the style with a light soapy aftertaste reebtogi (6378) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 22, 2012
341ml bottle pours a pale straw color with a small white head which leaves little lacing. Aromas of pale malts and light fruits with some light citrus hops. Taste is light malty sweetness with some light fruits and a mild citrus hop bitterness. Light to medium body with decent carbonation. Minhas’ "Brewmasters dream" is only slightly better than a typical macro lager ... disappointing.
