Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - JUN 13, 2008
This is a nice, tasty helles with a strong bready character. Its slightly darkish gold with a faint haziness. It has a medium, slightly off-white head that slowly dminishes to a thin, permanent top and leaves a little lacing. The aroma is very nice, whole wheat bread, yeasty sourdough, honey, lemon, hints of pine and hefeweizen elements. The taste is a smooth, full-bodied, solid German lager, with a lot of toasty bread, crust, and mild but solid grass, pine, herbs, honey, yeastiness, and apple. Its smooth and lightly on the oily side, with an engaging zestiness, making it light but tasty, subtly complex, and very satisfying. It has a light bitterness to balance the sweetness and give a light bite in finish. The flavours last well, never degrading.

Oakes (16965) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 27, 2008
Amber-yellow with a thick head. Wow - that is really appley, maybe even a bit Sprite-like. I cant focus on anything else. The flavour is more malt accented with yeasty footiness, breadcrusty caramel and still some sharp apple. Quite rustic.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Bottle. Pours hazy deep gold. White head, lacing even in the plastic cup. Drank this one on a wooden deck in the middle of the Everglades. Good times. Fruity aroma is inviting. Includes some lemon, orange, and graham crackers. Has a rather complex body that ends in a hoppy dry finish. Flavors include more graham cracker but its not grainy. I quite liked this one!

hayduke (5138) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 11, 2008
From a 500 mil bottle this was a very clear light gold., big fat foamy white head and lots of lacing. Pretty strong nose of German hops and light malts. Mouthfeel very rich and smooth. Flavor is caramel malts with quite a bit of sweetness. Goes down real easy and there is dry and bitter finish. I liked this a lot more it seems than most raters it seems.

jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Bottle. Your typical bready, hay like, refreshing lager. Budweiser-esque...not my cup of tee. I cant quite see how to enjoy these pale lagers...

Guinnessman (102) - VACAVILLE, California, USA - DEC 17, 2007
Remember drinking this one while sitting on a bench on a hillside in southern Germany..Not too far from The Eagles Nest. Good aroma, decent head, but has the most amazing flavor that is very unique to that region of Germany. Most of this rating is due to the memories it produces every time I drink it.

Wegro (332) - Fresno, California, USA - DEC 3, 2007
Pours a really pale gold with a big bubbly head. Smells lagery, straw, bread. Thin flavor, has some bready malts, biscuit, but tastes mostly like a pale lager to me. Not really an impressive brew, but its crisp and easy drinking. Not really my favorite style.

ABUSEDGOAT (2693) - California, USA - OCT 28, 2007
Clear golden, moderate rocky head, pretty good lacing and retention. Aroma is bread with herbal and grassy hops. Medium bodied, somewhat velvety mouthfeel. Pretty tasty.
