2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a cloudy pale amber color. This head dissipates quickly to thin white film; moderate lacing.
Aroma is light malt. Taste the same, with some booziness and a hint of sour raisins.
Medium body, slick, soft carbonation, astringent finish.
This beer isnít as bad as the ratings would make you think. I probably wouldnít have picked it up, if I had looked first. Itís okay. Iím not even going to dump it.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy with a frothy top fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a typically carbonated hazy yellow orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The aroma was grassy and lagerish. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a biting hoppy aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of mildly vinous banana hops and malt. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

Bottle. Yuck. Pours a hazy yellow with almost no head. Aromas of sweet malts and alcohol. Flavors of sweet malts, corn, metal and alcohol. I was almost scared to finish the bottle after tasting it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Alko. Golden beer with white head. Alcohol and bready malts on the nose. A bit alcoholic taste is a bit sweet with decent maltyness which makes a good body. Not so bad, I expected less.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tasted from a 500 mL bottle purchased in Littleton, Colorado. Pale Lager aroma. Somewhat hazy yellow/orange appearance with a white head. Strong Pale Lager flavor with pale malts and alcohol. Not all that easy to stomach.

1.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Slightly hazy yellow, small ring of foam. Aromas of soapy hops, malt. Taste is sweet with little to balance it out. Somewhat nutty and carmel-like aromas come out, but donít improve it much in the absence of roasted or hop flavors. Tastes like malt at least rather than cheap adjuncts, but doesnít have a very good balance.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale gold, medium head, some lacing. Nose is grass, grain and some faint rubber. Tastes sweet, with some grass with a bitter-buttery aftertaste.
Overall a good strong lager with no "alco-nastiness".
