UPDATED: SEP 24, 2014 Bottle: What to say about this one that hasnt already been said? Pale straw-yellow body, bone-white "head" thats gone almost instantly. Huge skunky aroma, dusty grain, stale hops... Mostly skunk, though. Taste has notes of metal, old hops, dry grain, skunk, DMS, & mineral water. Overly prickly carbonation. Not a good beer, but I dont really need to tell you that, do I?

Bottle at my brothers place letting the kids play didnt expect a new region tick. Normal pale lager gold. Tastes of veggie sticks, light hops and cardboard. Light easy drinking.

jmgreenuk (8688) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - FEB 22, 2017
Bottle at Hair of the Dog, Bangkok. Poured a crystal clear straw colour with a short lived fizzy white head and lots of bubbles. The aroma is malt, light hop. The flavour is light bitter with a light watery dry mineral malt palate. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Way too light all round and with little flavour.

brokensail (16342) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 2, 2017
Bottle @ BBQ. Solely a degenerate Canadian province tick here. Clear yellow beer with some white foam. Perhaps not surprisingly, its kind of skunky. Typical green bottle pale lager garbage there. Otherwise, its mostly just your typical pale lager here with some sweet grains and cereal qualities. Get a little bit of that apple juice sweetness, too. Not a whole lot going on here, but you could drink it just fine at a party.

bottle or can. Recently re-discovered this one, very easy drinking and simple. Nice on a summers day or just for pints at the pub

Bierdimpfe (612) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 31, 2017
Bright pale straw color with moderate activity. Slightly frothy and foamy white 3 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with good amounts of legs. Flavors of sweet grains, corn syrup, barley, lemon, light caramel, floral spices. Cereal feel, slightly syrupy, lots of sugars with mild sharpness. Slick medium body with prickly carbonation. Light finish, the malts are heavily sugary on the tongue, with lingering soft leafy spices and a hint of skunk from probable noble spices. Feels a bit adjunct, but way less than most macro brands. Missing some sharpness but its more of a tender sugary lager that doesnt have strong bitterness. The freshness is pretty good and although the flavors are a bit faint, they are not off and unpleasant. Overall average quality craft, good drinkability for a macro lager.

Bottle. Pale yellowy gold in colour. Malty; sweet malts, maize, honey-like. Fruit; hint of citrus fruit. Hoppy; hint of grassy hops; little bitterness. Sweet malty fruity throughout. Mild bitterness in the finish. Fairly bland. (2010-05)

Drjohnrock (761) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 28, 2017
From old notes--12 ounce bottle from Remke/biggs (now Remke Market) in Delhi Township, tasted on July 21, 2012. Sweet grainy aroma with not as much skunkiness as expected considering the green bottle, medium gold hue, moderate white head, mostly sweet flavor with not as much industrial taste as I might have thought. In the increasingly rare instances where pale lagers are all thats available, this is the one to have since A-B messed up Rolling Rock and Straub American Lager isnt widely available (but if Straub were available, I would have it instead).
