2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pilsener glass.
The appearance was a nice golden yellow color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated and left some sliding stringy lacing.
The smell had some light sweet corn with a light graininess and light caramel ever so slightly in the background.
The taste was mainly sweet with an ample amount of malts running all about.
On the palate, this one sat fairly light and sessionable.
Overall, not bad, but nothing to go bonkers about. If anything, I’m sure glad the proceeds of this beer go to helping our Nation’s Veterans

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Pours a straw color with no head or carbonation. Smells like wet hay. Taste is not good, a little bit of DMS maybe, the finish is okay, kind of dry. This beer is not good, better off to buy a cheap macrobrew. Fortunately, I only bought one.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Golden with a white head. Aroma is lots of sugary malt and corn. Flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of malty sweetness, some strong grain notes and a hint of grass. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Boring beer here.

Sixer from the Spec’s on 75. If you could somehow combine the finer points of gasoline and Splenda, that’s what his is. At least I chose a beer with a good cause.

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a weak yellow with a nose of malted corn and grain with a light touch of dehydrated rose. Flavor is weak corn pellets soaked in grain alcohol and watered down. Watery on the tongue. Only rating it high overall because it’s for a good cause.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Grabbed a case of this "new-one-to-me" at my local shop for $10. Can’t pass on $0.42/bottles. Have consumed most of them and decided to pour one of the last ones into a pint glass for review.
Pour a darker-than-expected honey gold. Not as thin and transparent as expected. Lots of globs floating throughout. Not a turnoff, but not the prettiest thing to look at either. No head at all. No lace. The nose is sweet with floral tones and pale fruits. Decent body. Carbonation holds up what could be a thin beer. Drinks easy enough. The dominant flavors in this beer are fruity: apple, pear, honeysuckle. This is one of the sweeter lagers I’ve had. Mild bitterness on the finish. Hops are near absent.
Not a terrible beer, but not one I’d seek out actively. This beer did remind me of the reason I like to pour into glassware. After consuming a dozen or more of these straight from the bottle, the one I poured into a glass was just a more pleasant experience.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pale light golden in color with white head. Minimal aroma. Light malt flavor...clean, a bit of apple/lemon zest. A light, clean lager.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Oh yeah! New England in a glass. Sittin’ here at O’Brien’s in Temple, Texas. The first thing I thought of when I took my firs sip was Boston, American History and the New England coast. This beer just captures so much in a bottle. Hazy yellow. White ring head. Crisp malts. Balanced hops. A lively palate and bright finish. Prost!

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a golden honey amber color in the glass. Very nice toasty malt aroma, kinda like fresh wheat toast. Nice malty flavor, with really no hops to speak of. Overall, it’s very drinkable and good for charity. I might buy a 6 pk of this over the summer.
