Slightly hazy golden color with a rather thin white head. Small amount of lacing with carbonation bubbles floating to the top.

The aroma is very clean! Mild grassy hop and grain notes.

The flavor is like the aroma, very clean. A touch of malt, and even a little yeast. Nothing offensive at all! Just clean American All malt lager that goes down like water.

Light bodied, carbonated, and super, super easy to drink! For the price there is better if not equal lagers. But, I am happy I tried this one!!!

A: A medium shade of amber, with a very thin white head. I'd like to see more head on a beer like this. Pretty good clarity, only slightly hazy. Even still, it isn't what I'd consider average.

S: Not too much lager scent, very clean on the nose. I get only the slightest malt profile.

T: It has a very nice flavor to it. I get a light grainy taste, like eating crackers or a bread roll. It is a very light flavor.

M: Good mouthfeel. Very clean, although it seems to be lacking crisp carbonation.

O: I think lighter beer drinkers or those who appreciate simple lagers, but want more flavor, will appreciate this. My only real complaints are that it looks and feels under-carbonated.

A: Clear yellow pour with a nicely sized white head. The retention and lacing are nice.

S: Malty grainy smell with hints of hops. Perhaps some orange and metallic notes.

T: Sweet clean taste. Malt forward with typical lager tastes. Barley with a bit of citrus.

MF: Light, carbonated well.

O: A bit dry and metallic to be really drinkable. Just not quite a top notch lager.

Poured from a 12 fl oz bottle into a pint glass. For Brewery-Fresh Taste, Purchase Before Nov 11.

Appearance: Pours a standard thin golden pale lager color. Active carbonation and decent white head. A good representation of a classic lager.

Smell: A decent metallic hoppy aroma. Straightforward.

Taste: Flavorful, but a little grainy. Not too hoppy nor malty, but still pleasant.

Mouthfeel: Appropriate for a classic lager. A little thinner than most craft beers, but definitely a craft take on a standard American lager.

Overall: The name says it all. This truly is a Classic Lager, no frills, but good. Definitely a sessionable beer for a hot summer day - crabs anyone?

Poured from a 12oz bottle a clear light golden color, nice white frothy head and lots of tiny little bubbles.

Not much aroma to speak of maybe some faint malt and grass notes.

Taste much like its aroma a bit watery with some slight malt and equally balanced grass flavored hop notes.

Overall I think this is a very easy to drink brew that is very pale in taste and fits the style of American Pale Lager.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

pale yellow/gold color. a thin white head. clear, but not crystal clear.

low corn aroma. low malt aroma. low spicy hop aroma.

crisp dry flavor. low malty flavor and sweetness. low, but distinct hop flavor and bitterness. flavor is pretty even, but i suppose it leans most towards the flavor of adjuncts.

very soft mouthfeel. medium bodied. very carbonated, but not highly so, and the bite in the finish is softer usual.

overall this lager has a lot of flavor for a american pale lager. it still retains that refreshing characteristic, but its also quite tasty.

Second bottle out of the variety pack, best by August 2011.

Pours a light golden yellow with a pretty faint head. Little retention and zilch as far as lacing goes. Basic lager blandness...

Smells of lightly roasted malt and grain, a hint of buttery biscuit. As with the general appearance, I might die from boredom with this one.

Tastes as it smells, with a smidgen of floral hop presence in the finish.

Mouthfeel is light and easy enough to drink. A bit flat though...

Overall, your basic white bread lager. Nothing special about it, but nothing that stands out as a serious negative either. A dime a dozen...

Pours a light yellow with little head out of the bottle.

Smell is malty, classic Belgain smells with little hops, mainly just malt.

Taste is smooth, yet a little light for being tagged 'classic lager.' To me, a classic lager needs to have a little more to it. This tastes close to a Budweiser at times.

Not awful, not great.

This beer pours to form decent head. the head subsides but leaves a good lace.

The aroma is all malt nothing special here. Its sweet with a slight biscuit.

The taste is all lager and nothing else. The taste is very average malt up front with a slight amount of carbonation that settles with a dry pale malt on the tongue. It is a slight bitter at the end.

very average.
