Had straight from the bottle at a Greek festival. Wasn't expecting much, but this is a pretty decent AAL. Aroma we pretty much what I expected from a beer in a green bottle: sweet corn and malt, some vegetal notes. A long pull from the bottle reveals a medium feel with nice carbonation, with corn flavor a some actual peppery hops come through. Much better than expected, and better than most AALs I've come across.

Yellow to gold and crystal clear. Nearly no head and absolutely no lace.

Grainy aroma of unmalted barley.

Thin start but a good malt base -- grainy and raw. Like a macro but with a sweet flavor and full body. Decent carbonation. Low hop presence creates a shallow aftertaste.

Decent, light cereal grain flavor. Otherwise, rather pedestrian.

Bottle served at Jake and Telly's Greek/American restaurant in Colorado Springs...

30 C i could easily down some of this beers, else is a beer i would not buy . all together is much worse lagers out there than this, but this beer is not very interesting

Pours clear, gold, with 1/4 inch head. and moderate carbonation. Smells of skunk. Taste is better with light sweet malt, honey, and grass. Overall this strikes me as a slightly below average adjunct lager. Probably will pass on this in the future.
