TATE (265) - Lubec, Maine, USA - APR 25, 2013
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.

Mora2000 (5346) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 26, 2013
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.

Fratto (2524) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Sixer from the Specís on 75. If you could somehow combine the finer points of gasoline and Splenda, thatís what his is. At least I chose a beer with a good cause.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Bottle.
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 itís for a good cause.

Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 20, 2012
Grabbed a case of this "new-one-to-me" at my local shop for $10. Canít 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 Iíve had. Mild bitterness on the finish. Hops are near absent. Not a terrible beer, but not one Iíd 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.

Pale light golden in color with white head. Minimal aroma. Light malt flavor...clean, a bit of apple/lemon zest. A light, clean lager.

kidmartinek (3307) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Oh yeah! New England in a glass. Sittiní here at OíBrienís 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!

llcooldave (1033) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - FEB 24, 2012
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, itís very drinkable and good for charity. I might buy a 6 pk of this over the summer.

Great cause, not so great beer. Pours clear gold with basically no head, just a bit of fizzy action. Sweet, somewhat floral aroma. Taste is also on the sweet side with a bit of hay and barnyard funk.
