COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer was currently on tap only at the brewpub, but will be bottled. The guy pulling the taps thought it would be called Bison Platinum Ale.

dust covered sixer hidden in the corner of tower package. looks old. hazy dark gold with no head. sweet toffee aroma. flavor has lots of toffee, butter, honey and sweet malts. medium bodied. this is a light pale lager?? not much carbonation. may be old, but it still seems similar to the past ratings. actually, i really like it.

Real weak aroma of nothing special. Pale gold in its color. Strong corn flavor and light grain malt. Very typical and almost following in the foot steps of a non-alcoholic light beer.

Now here this, a decent tasting light beer. This is almost a premium...almost. Pours pale and golden with a little bit of sticky head and lacing. Not much to the appearance, but the aroma is nice and slightly hoppy with a little bit of spice that follows through into the flavor, with some biscuity notes, and a crisp grassy clean finish.

The beer after its removal from the 12-ounce bottle sets in the glass a clear gold with a smallish frothy white head and the lace thin but covering sheet. Nose is sweet malt, fresh and clean, start is lightly sweet and thin in its malt presence, top is cadaverous. Finish light to moderate in carbonation with the hops benign in their spiciness, quite dry and a beer that left me wanting something else.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2005 (12 oz bottle: Cost Plus in La Jolla, CA) I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bottle of beer pour with absolutely no head and no carbonation bubbles whatsoever. The top of the beer is so clear, it looks like water. Fairly sweet nose with an obvious bready aroma, plus something very light and worty that reminds me of taking a brewery tour, so I actually like the nose on this beer. Definitely has a bit more flavor than other light beers. Lightly malty, biscuity, woody flavor, some mild honey sweetness, and minimally bitter. Is there actually any hops in this beer though? The finish is very flimsy, but that’s typical of light beers. While the body is on the light side, it is heavier than other light beers. The lack of carbonation bubbles coincides with the very flat mouthfeel. The color is light golden, but not what I’d call pale yellow. For a light beer, it’s not horrible.

Clear golden amber appearance, lack of head formation. Sweet malty honey aroma. Tea like flavor with honey and lemon, very mild bitterness in the finish. No faults, easy drinking sunshine beer.

Bottled as Bison Organic Light. Light gold color. Small foamy head. Aroma is grainy and sweet. A light bodied light beer. Malts are mild, slightly fruity and a touch sweet. Hops are mild and slightly spicy. Well balanced. Not bad tasting for a light beer, tastes like a lot of pilsners/lagers style beers. A little flat in the carbonation department. No weird tastes ad with some other light beers. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

This beer was absolutely crystal clear!! I would've given it a full 5 on appearance, but knocked it down a notch since the head was basically nonexistant. Very clean flavor. Would be a good "lawnmower" beer, but nothing I'd go chase after.
