1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Same tinge of carbonation as the regular lager. Root beer color, very slight toasty flavor, initial bitterness and no sign of any sweetness. Good watery drink to wash down spicy food but not much else.

Bottled from Grocery Outlet. Malty and somewhat sweet up front. A bit of roastiness in the finish. Maybe a little watery at times, but still a pretty clean beer with a decent amount of flavor.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Atlanta, Ga. - Total Wine - Perimeter - 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a dark chestnut brown with a decently thick off-white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma has a hint of dates, some molasses. not off-putting. Some dates, a touch of bubble gum, hints of chocolate in the flavor, some nuttiness in the back end. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Much better than expected.

Light brown pour with an off-white head. Slightly malty aroma, notes of caramel and biscuit. Flavor is watery and weak. There’s just no depth to this brew at all.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a light brown color with a decent tan colored head and a nice retention.
The aroma is very weak, hardly picked up, just some basic malty aroma.
The taste ois sweet throughout, quite bland withouth any real finish.
Drinkable but that’s it. No real taste to it.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Caramel color, a little on the dark side. Respectably holds a foamy, dirty white head. Aroma is rye and adjunct grains. Flavor is rye, caramel, corn, dirt, and occasionally metal. Probably made in rusty steel tanks in Laos. This beer is inconsistent, sometimes its good, and other times its offensive. It’s probably pretty nice if you chill the nastiness out of it.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rated on 6-07-2010 - This bottled beer has a medium sized very fizzy off-white head with a short retention, transparent orange body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, roasty, sweet, and alcohol. The taste is sweet, malt, some caramel, and dark fruits. The palate is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. This is a rather blah tasting beer and thus lacks character and no WOW factor. This is a beer that I will not seek out again.
