2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a light gold in color with a decent head and lacing, faint aroma is metallic, mouthfeel is decent for style and is the best part about the beer, flavor is metallic and not much else, good looking in the glass so just leave it there.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a bottle into pint glass
Appearance - a golden straw color which formed a large head upon pouring which faded quickly
Smell - Sweeter, with no detectable hop aroma
Taste - A bit of a corn flavor with not mush hop spice. Sweeter then the traditional "domestic" brew.
Mouthfeel - Mid range in thickness/viscosity, but with a good amount of carbonation for the style/
Overall - Nothing to outstanding, but decent for its price (picked in a variety 12 pack for $8). For the price probably better then the standard domestic of its class.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 Horse Ale is a clear, sparkling, light golden ale with no head-- just a swirl of small bubbles. It has an aroma of sweet malt and corn. It’s medium light bodied with a starchy finish. It tastes sweet and corny. There’s a rubbery, sulfurous funk to it that identifies it as a Genny. There seems to be a slight nuttiness to it. It’s funky and sweet, but I could have more than one in the ice-cold stubby format.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Tastes like a Macro. Watered Down and Little Taste. Carbonated and sour aftertaste. Must face some tough choices to pick it. Below average.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle to pint. Looks fine; a transparent gold with white head and ample carbonation. Smells and tastes semi-sweet and doughy. Average on the palate. Better than I expected.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Stubby bottle pours pale straw yellow capped by white head. The thin head has staying power from the gobs of carbonation. Nose and taste are all cornmeal. Light bitterness and carbonation lead to a crisp mouthfeel. Body is a tad thin.
