I like this beer. It does what I want it to do.

Pours light golden with very little on the nose, maybe corn.

Taste is simple lager but I believe that it gets it correct. Light hops.

Overall there is not much to rave about, but there is even less to complain about. I think this beer is better quite cold. If you think you might like it, you probably will.

Sampled tonight on 5/10/14, Had this one before but has been a while. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a vintage 'Falstaff" thumb-print glass goblet.

Pours a golden color with a very small white head but leaves some light spotty lacing when sipped. The aroma is nothing special, just some grains but a little on the 'skunky side'. The taste is better than the smell with no bitterness actually like I would expect. Taste of some grains and malt but nothing that stands out. Overall it was OK and I like their dark beer much better.
