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. It’s not bad, it’s just more or less nothing. Very drinkable, until the finish arrives. Then the taste is more alcohol. A bit puckery. I don’t 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 didn’t. Dry bitter corn aftertaste. Just another average lager.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Ouch. The stuff pours a boring flat yellow without head. Smells somewhat malty and corny with slight smoke. More smoke in the flavor along with cedar and toast. These things might sound ok separately but together this stuff is just gross. Thick, syrupy palate with lots of residual sweetness. Blech.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
500 ml bottle.
Clear golden with a creamy white head. Thin rings of lace cling to the glass. Looks promising.
Aroma is sweet grain, corn syrup.
Flavor is sugary, with a bit of corn, a little dryness on the finish.
High abv is well hidden.
Not one I would visit again.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
From bad to worse tonight. Light golden color with a diminished white head. Aromas of burnt paper, grits and cheap rice wine. Scorched rice invade the tongue. A woody bitterness takes over slightly. I really cannot continue. Bland with a significant bad overtone.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer evacuates the 500ml brown bottle a brilliant gold color with a presentable head that is white in color and creamy in texture, upon its demise the lace forms a firm, thin sheet of lace to surround the glass. Nose has a grainy sweetness, like fresh cracked corn, fresh and crisp, clean to the senses, start is lightly sweet, with a nice grain presence, top is light to medium in its feel to the palate. Finish has a respectable acidity, the hops detectable, and the 8.1 percent ABV, makes itself known, quite dry, as dry as Arizona, as it hasn’t rained here in 110 days, bodes ill for the fire season that’s just around the corner, anyone know a “Rain Dance”?

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Grainy-Bud-honey aroma, some rice-ness, simple syrup, surprisingly smooth mouthfeel and sweetness but dragged down by light body, vegetal notes, and overall blandness.
