Sampled from your standard 341ml bottle. I’ve had this on many occasions. Pours a yellow/ gold hue, white head that lasts for no time other than the pour. Tastes of grain and corn.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught @ Milestone’s as "Palomino Lager": Pours straw coloured, reasonable white bubbly head. Aroma is extremely grainy, drab. Flavour is.. cardboard, corn and grains, just awful. Everyone else at the table thought it was ok, I think my palate has changed drastically. I used to enjoy Brick, I did NOT enjoy this. Thinking about what happened to Brick drives me to drink. Just not to drink Brick.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at Milestone’s as "Palomino Lager". Pours like a typical Ontario Pale Lager: light yellow-gold, a few bubbles and a small diminishing white head. Yawn. Aroma and flavour of grain, light hops, some fruit, corn, a hint of cardboard and malt backing it up. Very light bitter finish. Light bodied. Nothing overly bad, just very boring.

Pours pale yellow with a good size white fluffy head. Minute lace. Hops are present in the nose, along with some fruity notes, and some cardboard. Slightly hoppy flavour profile with wet cardboard and sweet fruit. Better than expected.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Another pleasant surprise! I was ready to write this one off-- clear bottle, pale (almost lemony) yellow colour. But there is a generous amount od European "skunky" hop aroma and character, as well as a noticable malt component. Finish is dry, boxboard. Better than I expected.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Buttery aroma with floral and fruity notes that are not very characteristic for a lager. Clear golden body topped by a decent white head that recedes slowly to cover. Butter is apparent in the flavour along with some underlying maltiness and light bitterness. Light body is on the watery side with moderate carbonation. Sampled on tap at the Walper Hotel in Kitchener.
