I was too kind to this one. Too bad it’s retired, or I’d rerate it. Lager is peppery and lightly spiced with corianders. Nose is floral. Rated 11/15/2000 Cletus (6368) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 26, 2009
Old undated notes: A fizzy light beer that I like to drink when it’s hot out. There isn’t much to this one. ROGUE (2216) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - FEB 5, 2009
12oz bottle, ESP lager. Poured a medium yellow gold color with a medium head. Aroma is grainy and sweet.
Medium bodied, light tasting lager. Mild and smooth. Good malt and hop balance, with a very mild flavor. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is slightly malty.

Oh boy! A retired pale lager! Actually, it’s not too bad. Advertized as a lawnmower beer, it’s just that. Bready malts with a light herbal/floral hopping. Drinkable, but I won’t miss it in its retirement.oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 2, 2006

Pours a deep golden yellow color. Aromas of citrus hops. Flavor of balanced hop taste with a medium body and a long dry hop aftertaste.

Bottle. I had this in a multi-pack back in 1999 or 2000 and loved it. I thought at the time that it was the best beer that I had ever tasted. It’s been a while, and I can’t be sure if I was right, but I remember a nice hop and maltiness with an amber color. Can’t recall the aroma, probably because I drank it too fast... changxao (104) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 16, 2003
This is something thats not offensive, but I wouldn't go out of my way to purchase any. Amber in color, not a whole lot of head, (which seems to be a trend with ole Pete). Decent flavor, but a little thin in body. haddon90 (1634) - Newport Beach, California, USA - OCT 15, 2003
Deep amber color with minimal head. Medium bodied lager with some maltiness to the aroma. A pretty light taste but overall not too bad of a beer. bac080 (398) - Bloomington, Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2003
My bottle is actually the Pete's Extra Smooth Pub Lager. It's the best thing from Pete's I've had so far. jezmez68 (404) - Chesterton, Indiana, USA - JUL 1, 2003
Nice beer-beer. Better than having like a Miller Lite or a Bud. Good flavor. I liked it better when it was called ESP - Extra Special Pub Lager. Anyway, this is a good standard "beer" to have around if you have Bud or Bud Light drinking friends, but don't care to purchase Bud products. It's not offensive, but has a nice flavor.
