1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
The flavor here is rather weak, offering some vague malty flavors and some tanginess from the hops without any distinct hop flavors. A cut above a typical macro, but not by much. The worst though is the way it feels - thereís some odd oily feeling to it that makes it sit strangely on the tongue. Not an awful drink, but for about another ten cents you can get the Black Boss Porter, which is infinitely better.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours clear amber with a small white head. The flavor is much nicer then the aroma, light smoked flavor to the finish that gives it some character. Nose of cheap macro brew, corny, faint caramel and bread. The light smoked flavor in the finish helped cover up some of the bland flavors and gave it some character. Still overall felt like they were going for the higher ABV above taste.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: Amber color, light head and lacing. Nose of light skunk, vegetal fermented rice and sweet malt. The flavor is chewy, strong banana and sweet rice notes along with the alcohol. Good as far as strong lagers go, but the sweet ricey overtones are annoying after a while.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours clear pale gold with a medium white (almost yellowy) head. Some retention.
Opens with a musty perfume of hops and corn. Iíd allow a bit of cream/yogurt in the aroma, too. Not much to be had.
Beer is light on the palate, clean mouthfeel, mild bitterness. Light corn syrup flavor - a bit metallic in a short finish. More drinkable than many American light lagers.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Probably cornier than the other mocnes that Iíve enjoyed. Bright yellow with a short-lived frothy white head. The aroma is corny with some bready malt, alcohol, and a sharp grassy bitterness. Surprizingly light bodied. A bit too sweet to my taste buds - too much corn syrup - and the nose-promised bitterness falls short. Drinkable, but Iíll stick with my Zaibo.

2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a waxy, pale yellow w/ a full semi creamy froth. Smells like grassy lemon rinds. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. Flavors are grassy w/ a mellow sweetness. Sweet grassy cream. Finish is bittered to parchment. Overall: a very odd tasting brew.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
500mL bottle. Poured clear lighter golden with a quickly-receding cap of white head. Aroma was of wet hay, not-so-pleasant corn, honey, and other ugly stuff. Corn syrup, honey, and some sort of alcoholl-ey fuel in the flavor department.. came across as a very poor malt liquor... lighter-body with a sticky, nasty finish with honey, corn, and alcohol. This was about 3 levels of suck beyond what I had hoped for. Blech.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle. Clear yellow pour with a medium white head. Very pungent aromas - smelled it as soon as I cracked the cap. Cornlike scent, slightly sweet malt. Fair lace, nice carbonation. Flavors are pretty run of the mill lager. Boss of the average, maybe...

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml. 8.1% bottle labeled "Boss Beer". Something of a sweet corn aroma. Nice gold color, deeper than Bud. Flavor is not much; more sweet corn? Medium mouthfeel with gentle carbonation - tiny bubbles. Finish with little hop, but alcohol is detectable. Itís not bad, itís just more or less nothing. Very drinkable, until the finish arrives. Then the taste is more alcohol. A bit puckery. I donít get it.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 mil bottle
Aroma had a light sweetness along with a more dominating grain notes. Yellow body with white creamy fading head. Corn malt with some acidic lemon flavor. Nothing to exiting. Thought alcohol content would of packed more of a punch in this one but didnít. Dry bitter corn aftertaste. Just another average lager.
