1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
This is a top 1% pale lager? Woo boy. The light brown pour is not too pretty but the label is cool, and the best thing about it. A Sprecher release, but the label calls it the Buffalo Water Beer Company - is this a bogus brand? There is plenty of corn sugar and yeast in the flavor - blah. The body is fairly thin. The aroma is mostly yeast with a dash of flowers. This stuff is not a blonde ale, despite its name. I didn’t like it at all! I would take squirrel water or donkey water over this buffalo piss.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2013 Hazy Amber Color, Huge Bubbly Head, Lots Of Lacing. Dull Aroma of Malt and Dough. Taste of Malt, Dough, Butter, Light Bitter Hop Finish. Over Carbonated, Medium Body. Seems to be Slightly Past its Prime. Whole Experience is like a roller coaster. Buy it open minded, check where it is made and expectations are down, check the ratings and hopes are up. After Tasting it, once again down since this beer is disappointing. Overrated no question about it. Mediocre, Average at best... Pass It...

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a cloudy golden with a medium, short lasting, white head. The aroma contains floral hops, yeast, cereal, and some light fruity lemon. Taste brings out a good deal of lemon tartness that balances with yeast and cereal. Its pretty straight forward with this one. Not much else. Lingering aftertaste of lemon. The body is light, with a thin, slightly sticky texture, soft sudsy carbonation. I find this one pretty boring.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at the Old Fashioned - Pours clear golden just as you’d expect, with a foamy white head. Nose is corn and grain, with subtle herbal hops. Taste is the same--grainy with a little bitter bite on the finish. Typical over-carbonated mouthfeel. Don’t really get the high reviews on this one. It’s decent for a pale lager, but it’s still just a pale lager.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bottle. Foamy white and lacey head. Malty aroma. Sweet malt beginning. Finishes with a mildly bitter hop. Very nice for a lager.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a pale gold with a nice sized white head. Nose is mostly hops;some cereal grain. Creamy on the palate, it has a pilsner taste but milder, not as bitter, as most of the mass produced pilsners. A refreshing beer but not top tier. Pairs well with many deli sandwiches and of course buffalo wings.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
At the bar in Iron Horse in Milwaukee. Not an ordinary pale lager. Slightly cloudier and much more rich and more fruit like flavors. Sweeter than expected and more hoppy. Good Stuff. Serving: Bottle

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Pours a pale yellow color with a small white head. Aroma is yeasty, corn. Medium on the palate with fizzy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, corn, maybe a little malty, and a little bitter hops. Yellow fizzy beer, but definitely on of the best pale lagers available in my opinion. A great beer for a hot summer day.
