2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled draught at Big Buck, Grapevine, Texas.
Pale yellow. Some grapefruity hops. Light bodied and rather soft with low bitterness. I can easily picture myself drinking more of this.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
(Grapevine) Clear straw body. Aroma is medium sweet, cereal. Taste is moderately sweet, cereal, grape, some corn, no bitterness. Light-medium body. Non-descript and inoffensive (except for an extra bit of sweetness).

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sample at the Gaylord location: Clear yellow-gold color with a medium thin white head and spotty lacing. Light malt and hops in the nose. Thin, fizzy body with hops and corn flavors. The finish is vaguely hoppy and does not linger much. Pretty forgettable.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap: Weak malt aroma similar to the Buck Naked. Transparent light gold with a white head. Lightly sweet with a light hop finish. Pretty standard compared to other Kolschs (according to my sampler menu) I’ve had and I’m not a big fan of the style.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light, cold and lamost fishy aroma. Medium Saaz hopping. Stock, but decent American Standard, if there is such a thing. Bread and butter finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
5 oz draught sample at the Gaylord, MI location, July 2006. Just faintly darker than the "Naked Light", thinish with little head....corn sugar and corn husks in the corny cornpone aroma....very sweet, full mouthfeel, clean and pretty juicy with a bit of mineral saltiness late, more hops (English-y earthy) than I’d expect....average carbonation and surprisingly bitter, dry finish. Not at all bad.

Corn? Ah yes, the same ingredient in ethanol. This was truly the first time I identified "gasoline" as an actual flavor component to a beer. Light, with a touch of hops. (on tap, Grapevine, TX location)

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the Gaylord, MI location. Clear straw body, medium off-white head. Light biscuity, floral aroma. Crisp herbal, floral hops bite balanced by light bready malt. Kind of bland but inoffensive with no serious flaws.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap @ Brewpub with Nuffield. Rating from 2004 notes. Yellow color with a white head. An odd cider like aroma. A natural lager flavor that feels less processed than expected.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was actually poured into a pint glass at the brewpub.
The appearance was a decent light golden yellow color with a slight transparency to it allowing some light carbonation to be seen rising. There was a light lacing that came from a light white one finger head.
The smell had some light sweet corn and not much else.
The taste featured a light sweet maltiness.
On the palate, this was sat exceptionally light and came across pretty sessionable. The carbonation seemed somewhat low but still felt okay on my tongue and mouth.
Overall, not a bad beer. Would I have it again? Uh...Big Buck makes more interesting beers than this, so probably not.
