Deep golden colour, with a thick white head. Malty aroma, caramel, some noble hop aroma as well. Flavour is well balanced, caramel sweetness nicely balanced by floral hoppiness. A nice surprise.

3fourths (9265) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 20, 2006
When had on draft its really not too bad, but most likely because Im not in beer-geek mode and rather just enjoying drinking beer with whatever food is being had. Anyways, this beer does seem to have some decent hop character when I tried it, and overall it tasted fresh. Not complex, not really that interesting, but far from being terrible tasting. Light and oily, fizzy texture. Lightly sweet flavors of maple and grassy hops. Decent but you basically know its not going to be too impressive.

bb (8884) - Alamo, California, USA - OCT 6, 2003
Bottle. An amber color with little aroma. It's deinately better than your standard American lager, with more of a malt presence. Easy to drink.

douglas88 (8664) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 11, 2007
Smooth and crisp taste with some malty undertones. A really good beer to drink in a bar, or really anywhere. A decent head, but not much of a aftertaste or aroma. Good beer.

mabel (8640) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2008
[1267-20080408] 12floz can. Grainy haystacks and dirty barn floor aroma with mild green leaves and fermented Concord grapes. Clear, bright amber body with a medium-lasting bubbly white head. More fermented grapes in the flavour, mostly grainy alcohol and floral hay and straw bundles and peat notes. Medium body is grainy but not harsh. "It’s better than a kick in the teeth."

blipp (8511) - La Mesa, California, USA - FEB 21, 2008
Bottle. Pours amber with a white head. Sweet malt aroma, not quite caramel, but close. Medium/thin body. Flavor is the same sweet malt from the aroma with the faintest hint of hops. This is way better that most pale lagers, I actually enjoy drinking it... and its pretty common to find on tap at many bars here in the northeast.

b3shine (8365) - Indiana, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Draft to pint. Looks decent; copper with head that quickly turns into lacing. Smells like macro tap beer. Much like __________________ (fill in the blank with any pilsner advertised on tv). Tastes decent; upper end of macrobrews. Mouthfeel is meh. Overall, a decent beer for what it is.

Ibrew2or3 (8358) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 1, 2006
On Tap. Crystal clear light copper color with white head hanging around the edge of the glass. Light aroma mostly sweetness of some sort. Light and fairly crisp flavor of malty sweetness and some dryer grain malts. I cant detect any hops. Very light beer that ends a little un-balanced leaning toward sweetness.

downender (8189) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2007
On draft at a bar in Alexandria, Virginia October 2006. Pale amber colour with a slight white head. Aroma of sweet malt with a whiff of hops. The flavour also started with a touch of malt before a decent bitter finish. Pretty good for the style, which Im not a great fan of.
