rumproasts (5318) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 5, 2014
bottle. Golden with two finger head. Nice flavor for a lager. Im not crazy about Irish-styled beers in general, but this is definitely an exception. Light malt body, pleasant slightly hoppy bite.

furthur (1110) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - OCT 19, 2013
White head, beer color of apple juice. Aroma of yeast, hops, slight malt. Taste crisp, fine bubbles, hops and slight fruitiness. For light beer, this is not bad!

lemmyslender (2) - Ohio, USA - AUG 8, 2013 does not count
Light amber, lots of head, medium carbonation, not really skunky, but a little off taste wise

bpreo (2779) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Pretty good. Light in color, and easily drinkable. Not too strong, so you could get away with drinking a few.

floydslip (383) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Pale, somewhat cloudy gold colored beer with a foamy white head that I guarantee will still be in the glass long after the beer has been scarfed. Nose is virtually non-existent with perhaps a hint of citrus, but so light as to be nothing noteworthy at all. However, the taste is ridiculously delicious. It has a bracing medium bitterness initially that develops into a crisp green apple-like tartness that balances perfectly. This fits so well with the perky effervescence to make an incredibly refreshing summer beer. I finished mine so quickly I was disappointed I didnt have another bottle on hand.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 28, 2013
Pours a cloudy medium gold with a sml fluffy white head. Aroma of yeast, malts and slight caramel. Taste is caramel, yeast, sweet malts and a ugh bitterness on the finish. Finishes dry and crisp.

Jcarb28 (97) - Pico Rivera, California, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Golden in color on the pour. Nothing great or amazing with this beer although, its a light, crispy beer with minimal floral aromas. Smooth and not complex on the palate. A nice drinker on a hot day compared to your usual market shelf beers.

Bomber to pint (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent gold with fluffy white head and lively carbonation. Smells doughy and a little hoppy with a notable pilsner yeast presence. Tastes like it smells, only better, with a biterhop presence and a good mouthfeel. A solid lager.
