Pours a lightly effervescent golden bronze with a frothy clingy-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet pale grainy malt and a touch of earthy hops. Body starts fairly standard for the style with a hint of pale malty sweetness and some mild bittering hops. Pretty smooth, but uninteresting.

Bottled. Poured clear orangey-golden with a tall, rocky cap of white head. Aroma was of sweet bready malts with dusty floral and sweet grains... quite pleasant. Flavor almost held serve, but picked up a soapy component.. sweet bready base with sufficient floral bitterness. Lighter-bodied, but never struck me as watery.. crisp and refreshing. Nice one.

Overall Impression: Average looking, average tasting amber lager.

JPDIPSO (6317) - Wauwatosa, USA - SEP 18, 2004
Dark golden color with a moderate off white head. Malt and mild floral hops aromas. A real older style lager. Rich malt base that simply says, this is beer. This was the type of beer that was on tap across the US 50 years ago. Straight forward brew.

Skyview (6115) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Pcked up single 12-oz bottle from Brennan’s Country Farm Market in Brookfield, WI. Pours a clear pale golden amber brew with a fast dissolving white head that almost dissipates clean. Aroma of light multi-grain malt, some gassy hops, and some white bread yeast. Taste is light to medium bodied, well-carbonated, with a white bread and grassy hop flavor. Finish is slightly watery, a mild bitterness, with a light bread aftertaste. Nothing out of the ordinary, just a simple lager beer.

This beer doesn’t look, smell, or taste like the pale lager that it’s classified as here. Not that it’s anything great, more like a Vienna wannabe. I’s got an orange/copper body with a slender yet sustained off-white head. The aroma is faint, sweet malt with a subtle floral/herbal hopping. It’s thin with a sweet bready flavor and just a touch of bitterness to keep the sweetness under control. Decent enough for a watery brew.

Courtesy of Skyview. Very murky brown/orange color with a quickly collapsing large head. Fairly heavy floral and citrus hops for a pale lager. Those fade in the flavor a lot. Mostly grains and caramel.

ChainGangGuy (4949) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 13, 2007
Appearance: Pours a faint, light copper body with a thin, white ring of bubbles. Smell: Weak, displeasing aroma of pale malts with a touch of mustiness and floral hops. Taste: Thin, sweet pale malt flavor. Faint hint of caramel. The floral hops and the bitterness they kindly impart are definitely on the lighter side of things. Finishes watery. Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Nothing to see here, folks.

Headbanger (4022) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2006
12oz bottle-Medium to dark amber with an off white head that dissipated quickly. Aroma of malt. Medium body with a big malt taste. Would call this an amber not a pale lager.
