1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Yellow, almost no head. Sweet, perhaps maizy aroma, but very nondeScript. First taste carries some alcohol on swallowing, but on the whole that doesn’t dominate the taste, and is accompanied by a very gentle (yes, that means incipid) malty taste. I did get a hint of something like honey, but I think it might have been maize. Never seen a hop, which is good, as there’ll no nasty acrid sensation when you drink it unlike some lagers.

500 ml. from Santa Fe Liquors in KCMO. I bought this bottle from a liquor store that was going out of business. $1.70 + an additional 40% off. Pour is clear straw yellow and gold with a one inch white head. Aroma of hop sweetness, and some earthy malt. Taste is quite clean and good. The hop flavor (almost Saaz) comes across nicely, and the malt body is very nice for the style. This was very drinkable, and devoid of the jagged adjuncts you generally find in Pale Lagers. Great value, even at full retail.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can 500 ml
Bight sunny gold with full of visible carbonation . Medium sized bight white top with some lacing. 4-
Nose :Soft sweet herbal malt aroma , clean and fresh helles like .
Flavour/Palate : Medium light bodied , semi harsh palate. Gently aromas did not convert here. Dry alcohol up front and edges. Some short lived malt sweetness. Flat ending. Having decent aromatic hops is not everything. Work on malt and and perhaps lagering week or two more would be beneficial as well …

Not bad taste, just not much taste at all. Got the mini-keg offering. Looks suprisingly good, refreshing, but no real taste. Well priced, but nothing special here.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From bottle- poured transparent golden yellow, no head, aroma of malt and yeast- almost like a European lager. Hits the mouth with sweetness, a thin body, finish highly lacking. I’ve had worse, but I’ve had better.

Straw yellow with nice white head. Grainy malts with a little skunkiess, but not much...banana as well. Taste is sweet malts with honey. Not bad, but not great at all.
