2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at MBC Lansing. My curiosity overcame me and ordered this beer with lunch. The body is a very light, clear straw color topped by a thin near-white head. Light aroma, with some grain, slight metallic notes, and hints of grassy hops. Light, easy-drinking body with bread and touches of lemon, sweet with no unpleasant off-flavors or cloying adjuncts. Quite plain, as expected, but still a lot more pleasant than macroswill.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Iíve had this a few times only on draft at Comerica during the Kid Rock show, at Cheliís, the Clarkston Union and the Machine Shop in Flint. Everything but the Machine Shop has been consistent (I think it was the wrong keg at the Machine Shop, but it couldíve been an early test batch).
The beer...typical lager color (no head) and tastes light with a little bit of a hop flavor that gives it more taste than the typical domestic lager. There is no aftertaste so it succeeds as a good refreshing tailgating beer thatís an easy drinker. Iíd definitely buy it as a daily drinker. I think the Kid has achieved what he set out to accomplish.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft sample at MBGF Summer09.
Poured clear pale color with an average frothy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Medium grainy and small grass hop aroma. Light to medium body with a thin texture and lively carbonation. Light grainy sweet flavor with a light sweet finish of short to moderate duration.
Below average brew that may be defined by its name, without the ass.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
MiBG Summer Fest 2009: The last beer I rated over the two days of the fest but what the heck, I will enter it now. Pale golden hue with lots of carbonation but not much head retention. The aroma has notes of corn and wet grains, hint of grassy hops and pear esters, some phenols. The taste is twangy grain alcohol with a bit of hop bitterness but short finish makes that go away quickly. Noticeable veggie aftertaste. The mouth feel is the best part of the brew, crisp and lively, easy to drink which I think is the point. Well it has a HINT OF DRINKABLITY right from the start... look for it where they sell Celis White, for it is what it is.
