Dacrza (980) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - AUG 31, 2013
DATE TASTED: August 24, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: 22 oz. pilsner glass... OCCASION: last revisiting the old classic...had too much at cousin Missy’s wedding last night--cheers...APPEARANCE: uneven, variably sized bubbles lodge and flutter in a brown-orange body; two-finger head settles to an off-white iced tea head that does not lace... AROMA: scents of peanut and toasted bread in the malty profile; hops provide little other than some funky undertones...PALATE: like medium-bodied, this begins with some strength but ends oily in the throat; aftertaste more than lingers...TASTE: definite bread amid vegetable elements; a bit of bubblegum too... OVERALL: a Northeastern PA sessions staple--one can order by simply saying "lager" in most establishments; this profiles as a beer with a strong odd-tasting dimension; relatively easy-drinking and very affordable, the lager ranks above mass-marketed faux pilsners but below many craft lager offerings; the label reminds us this beer was pioneered when colors (amber, in this case) were the distinguishing aspect of the industry...

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2017 Beautiful color. Good mouthfeel. Sweet caramel flavor. Sort of watery finish. Easy to drink a lot of.

12 oz bottle pours a clear dark golden color with small white head and hardly any lacing. Aroma is grainy and skunky. Taste is slightly bitter at the finish. Body is light with a crisp mouthfeel. This is one of the most refreshing lagers I’ve tried and I look forward to the next one.

Clear amber pour with a khaki head and poor retention. Spotty lacing. Clean and smooth caramel lager flavor. Medium body. Good stuff.

RABinCO (1511) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 12, 2017
Not the best beer, but the platonic ideal of the perfect beer. Crisp, refreshing, easily chuggable with a great flavor profile. Not super sweet, light floral hop notes. Light biscuit backbone.

Surprised how popular this beer is, flat flavor profile without much complexity that the appearance would suggest. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drank from the bottle. Aroma is caramel, bread, and skunk. Flavor is sweet caramel and bread malt. Well-carbonated and light. Okay.

onceblind (9688) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 21, 2017
Clear bright copper hue with a thin bubbly spotty cap. Nice amber malty lagerish nose with calm amber and toffee notes on a light body. Smooth lagered flavor with semisweet amberish tones with light toffee and a bready doughy finish. Lightly sweet and amberish and bready. On the nice side of okay.

ManVsBeer (10470) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2017
Bottle @ Buddy’s Crab House & Oyster Bar, Surf City, North Carolina. Amber with a carbonation and no head. Standard lager with a more malty nose than taste.

Pours a amber in color with minimal head. Aroma of bread and caramel. Taste is crisp and light

ZacM612 (718) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUN 19, 2017
Draft at Cowfish, Universal Studios Orlando. Deep, dark amber with little head. Sweet, smooth and malty. Not bad, but I won't be joining the cult following. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
