3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From my own tap, in various glasses including a stein and shaker. Pours golden, with a quickly-vanishing fluffy head. Aroma is malty and corn. Flavor is faintly fruity, with some corn sweetness. FAR FAR FAR FAR better than (1) mass-produced Pale Lagers and (2) most people reviewed. Criticisms below seem to be with the type of beer more than this beer. This is a beer to start people on not drinking macro Pale Lagers.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Location: Draft at the The Berghoff, 6/2/14
Aroma: The nose of this one is light, lager malts and yeast
Appearance: It pours a clear golden color without much head or lace to it
Flavor: The flavor is much the same, light, thin, and okay, just not much here
Palate: The body is light and a little thin, there just isn’t too much going on here
Totally unoffensive beer, and I mean that as neither a compliment or an insult. There just isn’t anything good or bad about. Totally forgettable.

Sweet corny aroma, I found it a bit musty. Clear yellow color. Taste is sweet and somewhat metallic, which happens sometimes when Minhas does your brewing.Easy to drink, since its the first in the sampler.

[on tap as Billy Goat Lager at Billy Goat, Chicago Pier]
Slightly metallic and lagery aroma with faint corn and creamy. Eternal pristine cover whose clarity could not be determined in the plastic cup. Sweet creamy malt flavour with some subdued noble hops and weak bitterness that isn’t enough to provide balance. Light to medium body, medium carbonation.
