Picked this up at Woodman’s in Oak Creek. weak and lifeless. not watery not bold drinkable if you are not paying attention.
$13 a case and way better than any macro. Drank from a can at Blue Mounds State Park MN. Great cheap beer.

Skunky scent and a watery taste. It was cheap and can get you drunk I guess.

Poured a nice, deep golden color, with a fairly long tan head. Pretty good hop and burnt caramel nose, with a carbonation character that was pretty much on target for the kind of audience this kind of beer might be targeted at (essentially, seems a competitor to something like a Coors Extra Gold). r464 (2372) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Pretty good flavor up front, light caramel with a touch of bread, and the hops come in afterwards. The hops were slightly citrusy, and overall, I found this not to be a bad beer at all. Paid about 12 bucks a case, so you can’t really beat that!
Gold color with a thin white head. Skunky aroma. Light and thin with some malty taste, a bit of sweetness. Bare hints of hops. A bit more body than a macro, but not much. Vir4030 (603) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2011
Pours a fairly clear yellow with a fine foam head. Almost no aroma, but a little alcohol. Almost no flavor, but it doesn’t taste watery.

I live in Cold Spring! I want to bad to be able to drink a regional beer as my "lawnmower/plow the rink" brew. When my local licquor guy said this wasn’t bad (and for $12 a case how bad could it be) I bought one. Same old Cold Spring story. Nothing I would buy again. Malty and "cidery". Tastes like a very light version of their Olde Johnnie Ale and for a couple bucks more a case, i’ll just buy that. (Which I do like and not just because part of the proceeds go to my daugters school, St. Johns Prep and the recipe came from alumni not the brewers at Cold Spring) Hey Cold Spring Brewery. You have so much potential and are such a great group of folks but your brewers have NO PALATE AT ALL! Want to make a cheap drinkable "American Lager" check out Lost Lake and copy it! If you do, I will buy it, I will drink it, I will most likely lose my business and end up living in a box behind your warehouse. thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 30, 2010
UPDATE: After a few Lost Lakes, it goes down nice. :)
(16oz can thanks to ericandersnavy) clear very pale yellow, almost no bubbles. Nose of skunk, funky butt, apple, gross. Taste of earth, apple, cracker, nasty. Reid (2649) - Salem, Oregon, USA - DEC 17, 2010
16 oz can from Grocery Outlet,Salem.
One of the palest lagers i have seen..maybe ’recycled"!!!!!, wispy head.
Sour,corny,cereal and dog biscuit aromas.
Taste is corn mash,hay,some weird bitterness in the end, but not hops.
Palate is OK for the style but becomes a tad stickyafter a while.
Overall a bad beer. Wish i hadnt bought 12...
