Gold in colour with a thick white head. Faint on malt in aroma. Crisp malt in mouth with light hops in finish. Very decent lager. jcwattsrugger (12559) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - DEC 9, 2009
on tap-pours a tight white head and yellow color. Aroma is very mild lemon-citrus. Taste is lemon-citrus hops bite, secondary grain. JoeMcPhee (10138) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2008
Deep golden colour, slightly hazy. Aroma is great. Loaded with bright zesty/floral noble hops. Flavour is a bit watery though. Lightly crackery and a nice herbal hoppiness. Soft bitterness and a long lingering spicy finish. Comes across more pils than helles. TaktikMTL (8014) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2005

On draught 3/5/05 at the pub. Better than pale, light orange/copper color with a small white head. Not much happening in the nose, perhaps some light metallic notes, a bit of grains and dry lager yeast. Touch of hops. Flavor is very unremarkable, but at the same time, it’s quite drinkable for a standard "please-the-swill-drinkers" light beer. No harsh carbonation, some lightly toasted grain notes and some hints of minerals and light chalk. Not any real character or personality, but at least it wasnt too watery.

Clearish golden, direct pour covered by a superb small white cover with a very lacy, sticky white foam. Slightly vegetal, very grainy, sweetish lager with a toasty, cerealic palate. Very soft carbonation. Surprisingly filling palate that grows a good dryness, but never offers much hop aromas. Clean and satisfying offering, if maltier than anticipated.

Clear blonde with a small off-white head. Smells nothing. Unmemorable taste of hay/straw with minimal hop finish. Its main goal is probably to satisfy the macro drinkers. It is much superior to the macro Pale Lagers but that’s not saying a lot. So there is an Alien Beer in Burlington, and like in cheap sci-fi movies it is virtually indiscernible from a normal beer. muzzlehatch (4975) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 18, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2005 July 2002: I don’t give a s**t what THEY call it, to me its a slightly more bitter Bud. Very clear and pale, corn sugar hints in the nose and a bitter, unpleasant body and finish with barely a trace of malt make me think this is the brewer’s attempt to really court the masses. They’ve succeeded. Avoid at all costs. 4/2/3/1/5 1.5

May 2005: Hard to believe how poorly I rated this previously; that was probably back in my bigger-is-better phase. This is very crisp and clean, hoppier than I remembered it (saaz I think), the graininess well balanced with a hint of honey and vanilla, and offering an appealing finishing tartness. Not great, but this is somewhere on the border with a decent German pils, not a Bud clone!
Light, fresh floral hop aroma. Pale straw colour and thin white head that diminishes to a ring around the glass. Good carbonation - head lasts throughout. Lightly malty flavour with mild cereal and a dry, bitter finish. Light refreshing body. A decent example of a style that is not my favourite by far. On tap (Nov 2003).

Fruity-floral hops with mild grainy notes. Golden yellow clear with slight haze, thin white head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Grainy start. Mild oat and barley. Dusty grains, beany. Solid lager taste, nothing fancy but extremely honest - nice bitter finish with grainy bitter after.
