2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle @ home. T. Hanks, Jake. Clear golden pour with a soapy white head. Chlorine, grain, and sugar on the nose. Some cardboard, caramel sauce, and white grape. Really just sweet and watery. Cardboard, caramel, and simple syrup. Some grape and apple esters. Kind of grainy, mild malt character. As expected.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Watery aroma with a bit more breadiness than the light version. Flavor is bready, watery and a bitter finish. If nothing else, it's refreshing.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pour is a clear yellow with a large white head that dissapears quickly. Aroma is grain, maybe some corn or other adjuncts. Flavor is almost nothing. Watery and goes flat quickly. I was looking for a good lager to have around the house for summer and this ain’t it. Way too watery and flavorless. I’ll stick with Schlafly summer.

It poured a clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma was of grain, mustiness, some florals, earth, grass and light citrus. The taste was of cereal, earth and grass.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Visiting STL and at a crappy bar listening to some music. Beer choices are slim and tap lines are dirty. But I am in the mood for some liberty as any real patriot would be. fortunately American Patriot and the light are only 2 bucks. Asked for a glass and got a beautiful Bud Light STL Blues glass. Pours with a tiny head. Color is macro deep yellow. Aroma is perfectly in line to attract the Bud lovin crowd that also keeps up with the high finance of the international malt beverage industry. Smells of rotting apple core, garbage corn, and the sweet smell of ’Merica. It goes great with the surrounding aroma of hot sauce. My lower intestine wants to jump up my throat to block any chance of this beer reaching my stomach while simultaneously choking me and putting me out of the misery of having to taste this vile toilet moisturizer. The one or two small sips I can muster taste like corn syrup and sweet rotten apple juice.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured a small white head with sparse lacing, transparent, fast rising carbonation, and a yellow hue. Aroma was malty and some corn. Flavor was malty, crisp and clean. Tingly mouthfeel. Nothing special here

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle- pours a light yellow color with a decent head that fades quickly to bits of lacing. Aroma is a bit musty with grain and some malt sweetness. Taste of malt sweetness, crisp with grain. Mild bitterness and bit of lingering sweetness. Light body, crisp and too sweet to enjoy. Another lager in an ocean of lager. if you want to show your dislike of the big macro breweries and show your independence, then go for it.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear pale golden with a respectable full white head that diminishes considerably, but sticks around. Aroma is malt and corn. Taste is smooth and refreshing, but still very macro-like. Sweet pale malt, boiled corn and very little hops. Some breadiness as well. Please note this is not brewed in St Louis. It’s brewed under contract at the former Old Style Brewery in LaCrosse, WI. Being originally from Chicago and very familiar with the brew, I think what we have here is the resurrection of the original Old Style flavor. Nothing special, but better than most macros.
