LyndaNova (532) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 24, 2006
Cold 12oz bottle: Pours a clear dark golden color with a small foamy alabaster head that gradually dissolves. Aroma is of light sweet malts and grass. Taste is of light sweet malts with hints of yeast and mild hops. Watery texture, smooth and mildly carbonated. Ending is malty and watery with a slightly sour aftertaste.

PorterPounder (7763) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2006
Kitcho Restaurant, Tallahassee, Fl. - 12 oz bottle. Light golden pour, snow white head, slightly thin, leaves a good trail of lacing. Not much of a noticeable aroma, pehaps a hint of fresh lake water, and a hint of yeast. Flavor was crisp and had a trace of maltiness in the back end. Detect aa trace of honey sweetness. Thinnish mouthfeel and a metallicy finish.

henry3r (586) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - MAY 23, 2006
The bottle poured a very pale yellow, crystal clear beverage with a very small fizzy head that was fully diminishing and left no lacing on the glass. The aroma was dominated by malt with notes of dough or bread yeast. The body was light with lively carbonation and a watery texture. The flavor started off slightly sweet but quickly became somewhat bitter. the finish was short with just a bit astringent.

ClarkVV (6401) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 1, 2006
2005 or early 2006 bottle consumed on 2/22/2006
Crisp, dry yeast bite rises up from the glass upon first pouring, with just the slightest hint of weakly grassy hops (very dry). Completely clear, yellow-gold body, with a white head that immediately fizzles to ring. Light dough in the nose as well. Papery, somewhat, with some carbonic acid.
Flavor is seltzery as well, touch of salt, very papery and with the faintest touch of soft flowers on the end. Dont get any off-flavors, but some rice syrup-like flavors are present on the end. As it warms and breathes, some waxiness begins to build on the end. The more it warms, the more it begins to fail. Wateriness that is present from the start takes hold as the vapidly large bubbled carbonation begins to loosen. Not by coincidence, I dont think Ive mentioned the malt yet. I guess there is brief dried white dough. Light bitterness, if you could call it that, on end. No aftertaste, clean finish.

PhillyBeer2112 (2803) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - FEB 17, 2006
Peppery or dusty, somewhat grassy hop aroma, maybe cobwebs? Seems like notes of rice. Very bland, very much like water, with almost no discernible hop or malt notes - Ive had several pale lagers recently, and have become rather attuned to them - this is the emptiest of all the ones Ive tried of late. Very weak, watery finish. A vague sweetness around the middle as I get deeper into it, but thats it. Straw gold, weak head.

nick76 (4396) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 14, 2006
The aroma has detectable hop and malt but still not much there. The appearance is pale gold with a small head. The flavor is sweet malt with mild bitterness. The palate is thin. There is nothing bad about this beer but its very blah.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 28, 2005
Pours a nice light golden yellow. Aromas of hops, grass, and maybe corn. Taste is crisp with a nice mellow hop flavor. Still better than Bud/Coors/Miller light products.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 25, 2005
Grainy adjunct skunkiness (corn and rice) with timid floral hop notes and a weak-sister watered-down metallic finish ...only just saved by the fact that I had to share this 12ozer with my brother.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2005
The aroma of this yellow lager (with a nice frothy head - for a while) is too faint for much of a rating, some mild floral hops with little trace of malt. Watery. The flavor is a faint bready malt with little trace of hops. The finish is fresh water all the way.
