3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 7, 2008
Bottle from a Historical Beers of America gift pack. Has some caramel and maple notes in the nose, almost like cedar scented hay, I would call it. Flavor is adjunct-ey, sweet, grainy, with a light maple sweetness. Honestly it’s not that bad, I think because it was kept out of the light. A bland lager, that’s for sure, but it’s not disgusting or anything.

I had this a long time ago, as it’s in my records, but I didn’t take down good tasting notes!

Part of the Historical Beers of America "toolbox" 12 pack - picked up at Publix in Tallahassee, Fl - Killearn - 12 oz bottle. Light copper appearance, thin, trailing white head, decent bubble action. Not much of an aroma - some fresh lake water; perhaps a hint of olive oil. Flavor is very subtle and has some hoppy, bitter hints and brief nuttiness to round it out. Fairly well balanced. Not too much else going on with this one. Turns a tad metallic near the finish. Mouthfeel on the thin side. Had worse - decent for a pale lager.

Strykzone (7659) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2005
This beer might have the nicest aroma of any beer I have sampled. Some citurs and grass combined to make a delightful fragrance. Its appearance is of honey and with absolutely no head or carbonation. Was it flat? Flavor is nothing special. Some sweetness and bitters. Slightly sour as well.

Aroma is bread and malt spice. The flavor is mildly artificially sweet malts and malt spice into the finish

2.2
Braudog (6835) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - APR 3, 2008
Bottle. Gee, what a surprise ... yellow, starchy, topped with a poofy white. The aroma is fruity, maybe estery. The drink introduces some grassy aspects, a hint of some leafy hoppiness, mustiness. This is a beer that kind of illuminates the difference between an all-malt, full flavored lager versus an adjunct laden macrolager, but unfortunately isn’t all that well balanced. Good, but fails to meet the great level. (#3377, 4/3/2008)

Suttree (6504) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 4, 2004
Dark gold, nice big white head. Faint aroma. Sweetish flavors - malty slightly fruity. Not much hop flavor. Just too sweet.

2.4
dmac (6459) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 15, 2008
12 oz bottle from a gift set from Sams Club, it was a gift. Pours a clear piss yellow with lots of carbonation and a fizzy white head. Initial aroma actually wasn’t that bad with some grainy cereal maltiness and slight floral hoppiness. Thin bodied like a BMC with average to slightyl strong carbonation. Flavor of grain, cereal that finishes with just a touch of hop bitteness. Not god by any means but this one is almost palatable.

2.5
dwyerpg (6410) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 3, 2005
What’s the difference between a Vienna and a lager. Are they thicker, because this certainly is. Normal for a lager and genuinely uninspired.

2.1
thedm (6319) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 18, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2004 This brew poured a medium sized head of fine to medium sized white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a softly carbonated transparent yellow orange colored body and a fair lace. It has a mild malt hop aroma and a strong malt hop flavor with a smooth slightly tingly mouth feel.
