2.98/5  rDev -11%

Apearance - Pours a crystal clear straw yellow with no head.

Nose- Very nondescript. Sweet grain, faint hop presence

Palate- Refreshing and light, faintly sweet and herbal.

Mouthfeel- Thin and low on carbonation

Overall- Very uninteresting, I will not be trying this again anytime soon.

Had on tap at Hangar 24 in Redlands
Consumed on 1/24/11 coincidentally
1st trip to this local brewery

A - Clear light amber orange color with an effervescent white head

S - Smell was slightly soapy, sickly sweet to the nose

T - Slightly sour taste to start with lightly malty sweet type finish - lots of carbonation

M - High carbonation, light lingering mouth coat and sickly sweetness

D - Reminded me of a sweetened type of BMC - I would recommend this to a lover of adjuncts though I'm not certain this is what they were going for. Easily see this being a crossover beer since there wasn't much of the strong flavors that most of the highly regarded beer types have that are so strong initially for the initiate to craft beer. Not for my palate on a regular basis, pretty bland with too much sweetness in the finish...

On tap @ Hanger 24

Look: Straw yellow with a 1/8 inch head and no retention

Smell: Traditional lager notes

Taste: Pale malts with a candy like sweetness

Mouthfeel: Thin body and mildly carbonated

Overall: Not bad for a lager not sure if I would drink it again

On-tap at Eureka!Burger Claremont

A: The beer pours a slightly hazed golden straw color with a couple fingers of white head on top.

S: Smells somewhat sweet with quite a lot of lager yeast on the aroma. Pale malts and light breadiness with just a hint of corn to it. There is a nice hint of floral hops and some straw and grass in the background.

T: Flavors are clean and simple and there is quite a nice bready sweetness to the beer. Pale malts interact nicely with the light and crisp hop flavors. Just a touch of corn and a very mild bitterness on the finish.

M: Medium in body, definitely fuller than your average helles, with a moderate carbonation.

O: Not sure why this one is getting such low marks, but I found this to be a great beer and one of the better light American brewed lagers I've had.

Draft to Pint
12oz

@Dublins Irish Pub, Chino Hills, CA
Pints are $3

App- A pretty standard pour. It was a very clear yellow with a decent amount of bubbles. Maybe a 1/4" of head. No cling or lace.

Smell- It was nice and crisp. Had a none of the biting lager notes. It had a good earthy note but wasn't buttery.

Taste- Pretty standard Lager. Wasnt overly butterly like most are. Had a crisp malty note with a good earthy note.

Mouth- A light body with a high carbonation. Residual sweet malts.

Drink- Pretty average beer. In offensive for a lager, not sure I'd have again

3.6/5  rDev +7.5%

Update a year after first review: listed at 5.2% at Tiger! Tiger! in San Diego. Makes me think of a Kolsch right off. Just enough bit of the hops. Pleasant malty touch. Foams up a nice frothy line every time you sip. Served in a tall half-litre Stiegl glass.

09-22-2010: Light golden color typical of lagers. Head dissipates rapidly. Nice touch of hops, but only a touch. Flavors are thin and crisp with a hint of malt. Faint resiny flavor. All of the tastes kind of evaporate, leaving a bit of dishwater in the mouth and barely any bitterness. Still, pleasant enough for a gulp but not very interesting.

I don't get any sense of German style with this, but what's in a name?
