A: Clear pale gold in color with a thin white head that dissipates fairly quickly and leaves a thin rim of lace. Poured into a pint glass.
S: Grainy,sweet,bready and citrus aromas.
T: Slightly sweet grainy and bready flavors with a hint of citrus.
M: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
O: A very drinkable lager with more than the usual flavor of an American lager. A most pleasant beer that I would have again.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass but typically I down them from the bottle.

A: Bright transluscent gold with a gleaming white head.

S: Sweet aroma, hoppy with a touch of orange-citrus.

T: "Light" (not BAD light), sweet taste. Nice and crisp with slight, good bitterness at the finish.

M: Carbonation is good, light mouthfeel overall.

O: Outstanding "cooler filler". This is a crowd pleaser. The beer nuts will drink it, the beer novices will drink it. Comes in a bottle that reminds me of my Dad and Uncle's drinking "Rhinegold" and "Schmidts" when I was a kid. But that's where the simiilarities end! Great price for 12 pack. It's in my fridge at all time.. BUT NOT FOR LONG!

Fresh, bright, and highly drinkable- this no-frills lager both quenches the thrist and satisfies the stomach with a full flavored American barley blend.

While carrying the stallwart appearance of bright golden with dainty white persistent foam, the aroma and flavor profile deliver the character of fresh baked light bread, yeasty dough, lightly kilned barley, and modest grainy sweetness. Lightly grassy, hay-like, herbal, with a mild estery apple character and peppery spice- this lager proves to be much more than the boring American mass produced variety, and gives a balanced character from both yeast and hops. Medium-full bodied, the seemingly all-malt recipe allows for the heaft of pilsner to develop from an early starchy body and into a minty warm finish with ultimate crispness, and mostly clean flavors throughout.

Session being the opperative word, but at 5.1% many may disagree. I found this beer very enjoyable and with extremely high ease of consumption.

Had this a few days ago at a co-worker's birthday party. We made a session out of it. He puked. Its okay bud, everyone pukes sometimes.

A: didn't get much of a look at it. It was in a bottle.

S: malty, good hop profile on the nose. Fresh cut grass, juniper.

T: balance is key. Imagine redstripe, sweetnessed toned down, but malt profile intact. Really great hop balance. Really a great session brew.

M: Smooth, nice amount of carbonation.

O: I would love to have a 12 pack in my fridge at all times.
