1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Thirty years ago, i was participating on a 10 mile hike with the Boy Scouts of America through the back-roads of central Texas. The time was the height of summer, at least 95 degrees. We all ran out of water from our canteens after a few miles. To supplement our desire for nature’s drink, we would sneak up to a random house and grab water out of a willing and unwatched garden hose :)
This is the memory that was invoked when drinking this beer (growler, aka 1/2 gallon, aka jug); water out of a garden hose. The hose probably had a little lead leaching, but i am sure that at least this beer is lead free.
If you are working in the yard or roof this beer is for you. If you are looking for a flavorful beer, then look elsewhere.

22oz from wegmans. The appearance is very white. Lots of carbonation. This smells not great . Someone here said "smells like the train at 3am." Budwiser and urine. The taste is indifferent. Totally indifferent. Rice and water. The mouthfeel is fine. So that’s good.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
APPEARANCE – super light golden color. Very white head dissipates quickly, but laces glass nicely.
NOSE – ever so slight hop spiciness (grassy).
FLAVOR – very light indeed. Refreshing on a hot day, but not a lot of interesting flavor to it.
NOTES – Good replacement for a macrobrew if you want to support the local economy, or get your friend off MCB.

Crisp Clean. One of the pioneers of western mass craft brewing. If you like European Lagers this beer is more than acceptable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 15, 2015
Location: 12 oz can from Nikki’s Liquors, 4/6/15
Aroma: The aroma is bready malts, with some herbal and spice notes.
Appearance: It pours an unclear gold-orange color with a sheeting white head and mid-heavy lace.
Flavor: The taste is similar, bready malts, lightly sweet, spice and herbal light bitterness.
Palate: The body is light-medium, fairly clean, average carbonation, and a lightly dry finish.
This is decent. Not something I’d rush out for again, but a decent offering none-the-less.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Winooski Beverage Warehouse. Aroma: cereals, fruits (orange, grapes?), spices, grass. App: hazy straw with small white head. Taste and palate: light body, oily, watery, light sweetness, light bitter finish. Overall: a boring pale ale, not complex, body too thin, not enough bitter, not enough malty.

Light and refreshing, with a strong, fruity aroma but not a whole lot of flavor to go with. Light Amber colored and smooth.

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Fruity base, lighter bitterness, sweet candy malts, and mild citric undertones. Not bad.
