Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - SEP 13, 2012
12oz bottle poured into a small stemmed pilsner glass. Pours a honey-gold, with a big, frothy, white head on top. Great retention. Mild citrus, dry grains, smack of lemon the finish. Crisp, clean mouth feel wets the palate. Not too slick. Really fresh beer. I love the flavor on this one! Fresh crisp bitterness, lemon, lime rind, grassy notes - really a "green" beer. I like this one a lot. This is an adjunct? For reals? I thought this had a lot of pilsner character with the sharp pale citrus, hop presence, and crisp feel. If this is an adjunct, this is one of the best out there. I would stock and restock the fridge with this beer. I’ll be getting this one again when I’m back in WI.

From old tasting notes. Pale gold color. Small white head. Good malty aroma. Prominent malt flavor is sweet. Medium bodied with high carbonation. Crisp, hoppy finish is pleasant and invigorating. A brew worthy of drinking many of.

Low to medium carb, sorta apple aroma, Vienna lager flavor considering its style. I actually like this quite a bit. Great price

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear, golden in color, minimal white head and no lacing whatsoever. Aroma is nothing but malts and grain. Taste is very sweet, lots of malts, grain notes and lager yeast. Easy to drink, but a bit too sweet to be refreshing. Just OK.

Pretty pathetic. Most the point beers seem just average but this one is pretty bland.

This is one of the smoothest and creamiest beers available. As I recall, this was rated as the number one beer in American the 1970’s and there is a reason for it. Little aftertaste, full flavored but yet mellow. This has been my favorite "sit on the porch in the summer" beer for four decades.

12oz bottle pours a clear golden with a large white head. Grainy malt aroma. Sweet malt taste, almost a smoke grain flavor, light hop. Nothing special, but highly drinkable.

dukeandduke (264) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2015
3/16/15 (Can) - Light Golden Pour, minimal white head, mild carbonation, not much aroma. Taste and feel mild, not much taste, smooth going down. OK.

jkwalking05 (4740) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 12, 2015
12 oz bottle. Gold in color with an average white head. Aroma is of grain, sweet corn, light hops, and pancake batter. Taste is of corn flakes, grain.

2.3
travita (5006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Bottle. The look is clear, golden in color, ok white head. The smell is grainy, corn, floral, ok. The taste is light, grainy, crisp, and ok.
