Bouteille brune 12 noces achetée à Phœnix. Liquide blond clair translucide. Nez malté avec une odeur végétale ou épicée (jus de tomate?). Peut-être un houblon américain. En bouche, idem au nez. Un peu différent pour une lager, mais pas mauvais. Peu de mousse et corps moyen. Pour ouvrir l’appétit.

On tap at the brew pub in Tlaqapaque. Pours a golden Pils color with decent head. Nuttiness and Pils malt dominate the aroma. Taste has a nice lightly toasted nut character. Light, refreshing, and well-crafted for the style.

Jow (4164) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Tap as part of seven dwarves flight. Pours golden with fluffy white head. Not much aromas to speak of. Tastes of hay, regular grass, citrus, vanilla, and hops. Pretty boring gold lager billed as 49er on menu fyi

12oz bottle pours golden with a short white head that stays pretty well and laces a little. Aromas of lemon, and light grains. This does seem more like a helles to me than a pale lager as it definitely had more sweet honey flavor blended with some lemon. Airy and somewhat light on the palate. Crisp and clean and pretty drinkable on a hot summer day. I don’t believe that this one should be listed as a pale lager.

On draft at the brewpub in Sedona. Slightly hazed yellow pour, with a white head. Grain, light sweetness, biscuit, and lightly hopped. Decent, but nothing special.

Pour on tap at the brewery, clear yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of grain, biscuit, bread, slight honey into a bit of grass, slight yeasty note. Taste was a mix of grass, earth, touch of yeast, hints of biscuit, vanilla, finishing watery, slightly sweet.
