Bottle from Whole foods SLC. Pours clear yellow with a thin white head. Not much on the nose. Not much on the tongue either except for a slight citrus note. Finishes clean. Eh! Christpuncher (3191) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 18, 2013
This one smells really strong but lacks in taste. Very much a pale ale and pours light yellow like one.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a mildly hazy straw color. The head billows vibrantly at three fingers high, with a white shade. Retention isn’t fantastic, but the lacing it leaves behind is fairly prevalent.
S: Rather simplistic, as expected. Pale malts help back up mild hops, seemingly both German (grassy, sulfury) and ’Merican (herbal, citrusy) in their qualities. Serviceable, no more, no less.
T: Like I said, simple. It’s little more than pale malts and a kiss of hoppiness. To be fair, there hops aren’t entirely one note, hitting a middle ground between grassy noble and citrusy ’Merican flavors. There isn’t a ton of flavor, but it’s not quite ’watery’.
M: Heavy and viscous. No wait, I meant light and crisp. It’s a bit too tingly and astringent in feel, though. High carbonation is expected, making it very easy to drink.
O: This is far more conducive to simple, mindless drinking than sitting down and reviewing it - because really, there isn’t much to review here. Still, quite decent for a 4% lager. jcos (1851) - Maryland, USA - SEP 3, 2013

Appearance: Pours a light orange brown.
Aroma: Aroma of biscuit.
Taste: Faint hop, light biscuit lageryness.
Summary: Grabbed a six pack of these for one last "summer" bbq, figuring a lighter beer was called for. A solid pale lager, decent taste without any of the bad flavors of BLS.
Looks as you’d imagine. Smells nicely sweet and malty and has the same effect in the mouth with some dry, herbal bitterness too.

Pours light gold with a decent head. Taste is a somewhat dry and sweet body with a hoppy finish. Some citrusy taste somewhere also. BeerandBlues2 (13718) - Escondido, California, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours clear gold with a large, foamy brilliantly white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is corn and Pils malt (DMS) with light sulfur notes, earthy and spicy hops. Flavor is dry and crisp Pils malt, light corn (DMS) notes, light hops and medium bitterness with a dry finish. Light bodied and medium carbonation.

Bread/grainy, lightly sweet malt, and herbal/sulfur-ish lager yeast aroma and flavor. Also has herbal/spicy hop flavors, and bitterness that is mild--but substantial in this beer. Gription79 (2892) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Slight notes of honey, sweet pilsner malts, a hint of spicy hop character. Soft malts and balancing hops very balanced beer. ChainGangGuy (4920) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUN 29, 2013
12 ounce bottle - $1.79 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Best Before: 08/01/13.
Appearance: Pours a light yellow body with a tall, brief cap of white suds.
Smell: Very light, very mild pale maltiness with the faintest touch of honey-brushed white bread. Modest hints of dried flowers and citrus, too.
Taste: Meager malts, with ultra light tastes of baguette, honey water, and toasted grain. Light light light. Minor citrus with dried florals, dried spicy herbs with sufficient bitterness to temper the initial sweet hints. Drying, reasonably crisp finish with a lingering hint of sweet, floral lemon.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Decent, refreshing, which was all I was asking of it.
