Looks like apple juice in the glass. Skunk aroma to start. More malt than hops. Finish is a little rough.

Clear red amber colour with no head, malty sweet in the nose but that funk lager flavour I just dont like.

Fairly dark amber, more so than I expected. Only a thin, dissipating, white head. The aroma is fairly malty with hints of hops and perhaps some unsavory adjunct. The body is clean and fairly refreshing. The flavors are nothing spectacular but also not offensive. The malt heavily out-weighs the hops. There are some light hints of lemon, not really as a zest or in fruit form. More like lemon yogurt. An average lager.

Poured a nice amber color with a small head. Malt and hops in the aroma, but not a very strong one at all. Taste is slightly above average, like a high-end macro, but not a premium beer at all. Good, but by no means great.

Pleasant, smooth, amber beer. It tastes slightly sweet and smoky, with clear malt flavors. It's much more acidic on tap than in the bottle.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2011 Bottle. Pours clear amber with a small, fizzy white head, short retention and no lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cereal, toast, biscuit), light spicy hops, and a clean lager character. Flavor is cereal and biscuit malt with faint hops and light bitterness. Light body and warmth, medium carbonation with a lightly sweet finish.

Pours golden yellow, with a mild aroma. Taste is slightly bitter and not too distinguished, but still rather clean with a fizzy body. I actually was surprised this is listed as a pale lager, for it has more flavor than most other representatives of the style. However, Yuenglin’s Black and Tan is still far superior.

On tap at the Elmwood. Pours Amber Brown with aroma of tart apples and peaches. The sweetness of this beer overwhelms any other flavors attempting to escape to the mouth. The overall taste and mouthfeel are of water with slight beer sweetness. No malt or hops present at all. Wasnt very impressed at all.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2006 Tap: clear amber body with a smallish white head. Aroma is corn and a hint of caramel malt. Flavor is basically caramel and corn. A lot like... caramel corns... reminds me of Lewis Black’s standup routine. This is a little better than those stupid things though... barely.

On tap. Clear light amber with white head. Aroma is sweet. Taste is fairly sweet and has a light hop finish. Not terrible.
