1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Thanks to.... maniac? Thanks? Yeah, thanks.... finally opened this one. Not a lot of skunk for what I was expecting from a clear bottle, with a horrible yellow clear macro color with a fizzy white head. Aroma was corn, some burnt malt, corn. Flavor was pretty bland, some sweet corn notes, strange industrial chemical notes.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Had a sample of this beer from a pint glass at a Greek restaurant in Tarpon Springs, FL. The beer had a full gold color with slight bubbles and a very small, foamy white head with almost no retention, and light lacing and cling. It had a grainy hops aroma with some herbal, floral, and lemon notes. The beer had a grainy sour-to-bitter flavor with touches of barley. It was a lighter, thinner beer in the mouth with an average wetness and low carbonation.

1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear gold, 1 finger head. Surprisingly good head retention. Aroma of cereal grains, sweet, teeny bit of hop. Taste is softly bitter, sweet malt, and a not very pleasant aftertaste. Okay I guess on a hot day, but that is about it.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 ounce bottle courtesy maniac. Thanks! Pours a clear golden color with a thin frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of sweet cereal grain, mild raisin notes. Raisin bran maybe? Not quite. Taste is raw grain, sweet tea, mild grassy notes. Thin bodied, moderate carbonation, inoffensive, better than expected.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. "Thanks" to whoever provided this. The pour’s gold with no head. Bread, some golden delicious apples. Sugary breakfast cereal. The taste is similar. Pretty papery and uninteresting, but not awful. Sort of reminds me of Lowenbrau. Light body, active carbonation. Overall, not great.
