A golden lager with large white head that last long. It has a light hop aroma that matches the lightly hopped crisp taste. This is a good American style lager and would be great for a hot day or a long night. Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 31, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear highly carbonated gold with a half finger white head. The nose is malt and faint hops. The taste is grainy malt, bread and light hops. Medium bodied. Pretty boring, but good lawnmower beer. heemer77 (5360) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Slightly hazy deep bronze colored body with a dense off white head. The aroma is nasty old sweat socks and cheap lemon juice concentrate. The taste has light oranges and bread crust. There is also a little hint of black pepper in the finish. Drinkable, but the off putting nose would certainly keep me away, I am going to fly solo, thanks anyway.

Nice light golden foamy head that has excellent retention and leaves a sticky lacing. Clear gold with a good amount of visible carbonation. The aroma is crisp and hoppy with a hint of soap. Was pleasantly surprised by the spices in the flavor. Caramel can also be found and hops are evident largely in the dry aftertaste. As per the style, flavors are not big but this is an enjoyable beer. bhensonb (15851) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 17, 2008
Bottle from T’s in Tempe, AZ. Aromas are mild and mixed. Amber gold color with a smallish white head. Near medium body with light carbonation. Flavor is typical pale lager, yet more. More malt, more citrus hop? It’s a really tasty drink - for a pale lager. Kind of low on flavor - but way, way more than the macros. A lager I’d drink rather than pour.

Pours clear golden with a rocky off-white head. The aroma has very lightly toasted malt, hints of cream and light spice. Medium light body with a small amount of gentle carbonation. The flavor starts like the aroma with extra spice and overall cleanness. The finish has spice that seems to be from both phenols ans hops. A decent beer. thegreenrooster (4588) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 3, 2008
Pour is a bright golden with a large white head. Aroma is grain and sweet malt. Flavor is again grainy and sweet with nothing really wrong with it but still its pale lager boring. Prob better than any canned macro swill but nothing to seek out. SuperDave (2555) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 18, 2008
Clear golden pour with a foamy white head that leaves spotty lacing. Light toasted malt and a hint of hop bitterness in the aroma. Flavor is much the same with a bit of grain and a touch of sweetness. No off flavors at all, just a rather boring, but light and refreshing brew.

03-Jun-08 (12-oz bottle: Purchased 12-May-08 for $1.79 at Hi-Time Wine Cellars in Costa Mesa, CA) For a self-proclaimed "American Lager", this is actually quite flavorful. The minimally sweet, toasty and grainy malt base is quite substantial for the style and tastes like an unsweetened breakfast cereal. The floral and spicy hops are flavorful and mildly bitter, and offer a nicely balanced overlay for the malts. Some light honey in the background. The nose boasts dry, toasted grains, again like cereal, along with a bit of honey sweetness. The medium weight body is surprisingly heavier than expected and quite noticeably shows no drop-off at all in the long, almost chewy finish. Carbonation is medium-high, which is required for a fuller bodied lager like this one to still be refreshing. Medium-golden in color, but it pours a little hazy. The off-white head is bubbly and short-lived, settling to a wide ring and filmy layer. While this beer doesn’t particularly appeal to my tastes, it still stands out as a quality brew; lots of flavor, nice balance, and good body.
