2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewpub. It’s a clear golden beer with a small white head. The aroma is very weak, some hints of fresh fruits, grass and grains though. The flavor pretty much the same, not much bitterness either. Medium body, quite dry, and with a low level of carbonation. Short finish. A clean and uninteresting one going down easy. 130903

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Meh - I felt like most of the beer at Alcatraz was pretty mediocre - this one was no exception. Golden color, thin head, tastes somewhat spicy, but mostly corny cheap grain. Little to distinguish this from the Golden Devil Hell Lager.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Orange location. Pours with a clear golden body with minimal head retention. Aromas are lightly grainy and bready, with additional notes of grass and burnt hair. The beer tastes like malt flavored seltzer water. Very watery. No off flavors, but to be very honest their are few flavors period. Fizzy, watery and dry.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A: The color is a rather unimpressive pale golden color with a small white head.
S: The nose is similarly unimpressive with very little aroma coming from the glass. Maybe a hint of citrus.
T: A slight improvement with the flavor as there is at least some (sweet) malt and grain. Nearly Adjunct Lager in flavor.
M: Light in body with moderate carbonation.
D: If you’re into macro lagers, this one is for you. Disappointing, but not terribly surprising.
