Very different. Very weird aftertaste.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Another Rochester laxative. Slightly sweet. The last time I vomited (1985), this was a partial culprit (although the rum punch my dorm-mates had made was the major wrongdoer).

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Good enough for a cheap beer. Not a whole lot of hops (if any) for a pale ale, but on a hot day, it will quench a thirst. All I can say is - better than Bud.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Simple, not a whole lot going on except a little sweetness. No hops noticed and not much in aroma. Is this supposed to be the more upscale offering from the brewer who brought us the fabulous ’Genny’ line? Everyone drinks it a a bar I go to because its only $1.50 a glass.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Good appearance with a solid head and a light amber color. The aroma is nice with some sweet malt and (gasp) some hops! The flavor follow the aroma almost exactly, although the hops seem to be a little bit lost. Creamy, with a nice body. Not overly sweet. Somewhat more exciting than your standard American-style lager.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Gold in color, white head that vanishes, as fast as the taste, some lace. Nose ’Empty of most all grains, well a little malt’. Front sweet, middle light, the finish is dry, acidic, moderate carbonation, some hops, ’Totally Forgetable’.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
If you like your beer without any of that annoying malt and hops taste, then this may be your beer. Otherwise, stay away.

This could have been much worse. I agree, this brew is sort of smooth and does have a little more flavor than your average macro brew. However, I am glad I only bought one.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
It looked okay with a nice creamy white head and a light orange color but it had no nose and it went down from there. There was more flavor than your average macro but not a good flavor. I did not notice any ale characteristics. No real hop presence. Not very interesting.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Tastes like someone watered down a light beer. Not good at all. Some hops detected in the aroma. Thats the best thing about this beer.
