2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: APR 20, 2010 Bottle. Golden in color with an inch of white head. Aroma is honey and barley malt. Taste is grainy malt and biscuits with a little sweetness. Finish is crisp and dry with a slightly sour aftertaste. Decent Pale Lager to pair with BBQ.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Appearance: Surprisingly light and straw-ey for a lager. Tiny bubbles in the head. If the bottle didnít say "lager", Iíd swear this was a middle-of-the-road light beer from the appearance in my pint glass.
Smell: Not a lot in the aroma. Swirling and nose is almost in the beer and Iím not getting anything.
Taste: Thatís odd. And not in a good way. I guess itís beer but this is way, way nondescript. Nothing of note. Which is weird because the packaging is actually quite sharp. I like the little details of the label - the numbering, dating on the necker, old-style lettering. But the taste is nothing but... ehhh.
Mouthfeel: Iíve got to say: Disappointing. Real thin on the taste buds. This isnít like any lager Iíve had. It feels like a light, kinda watery beer in my mouth.
Drinkability: No, not really. I couldnít recommend this to a friend or otherwise. Admire the cool packaging, steer away from the beer. I wonít be getting back on the "Cable Car Lager"

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle
Aroma- Malty and a little sweet. slightly tinny.
Appearance- burnt orange, golden color.
Taste- mostly malty, some hop flavors underneath. has an alcohol presence in finish. lackluster
Palate- smooth, lighter body than expected. low carbonation, unpleasant aftertaste.
Overall, kind of a get what you pay for beer. on sale cheaper than others. decent microbrew. would be good with burgers.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
I picked up a whole six pack from BevMo. Not sure how I will pawn off the remaining five bottles. This was Batch 00073 and poured a light yellow color with a small white head that did not last long.. Nose of sightly sweet malts. Light body with average carbonation. The Flavor is pale malts with no detectable hops. A very average pale lager.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear yellow with a small head, little lacing to speak of. Subtle malt sweetness on the nose and palate, with a hint of hops if you really look for it. Very bland, but not quite offensive as some macros tend to be.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
One more pale lager down the tubes. Enjoyed while watching my Raiders get dismantled by the Jets. Aroma is lightly sweetened with malt. Pretty pedestrian but it could have been worse. Body is a golden yellow color, frothy 2" head on the pour which melted very quickly. Flavor has some really subtle malt notes but thatís really about it. Very plain jane. It kinda works for it though, as it was easy to drink. Still, forgettable though.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz bottle into a lager glass. Pours yellow-brown like dehydrated urine with a tiny fizzy white head that goes away immediately. Aroma and flavor are quite light except for some hints of sweetness from malt and itís really a stretch to find some hop in this. Finishes a bit dry and leaves you wishing for better.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
bottle, pours light pale gold with a tin white head. Aroma is thin with hop and pale malt. Flavor is thin and watery with hints at hop bitterness, but overall dissapointing.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle: Came in a Sample Pack from bev and More, good buy, you get a quick glimpse of several brewers. But most are avg beers at best. A clean straight forward Pale, refreshing thirst quenching. Unoffensive.

Pretty crappy, but could be worse. Why does this show up in Winn Dixie stores I wonder? Faint taste of watery amber malts. No hops, lightly sweet, watery finish. Not that drinkable, even as a light beer. I think I like budweiser better.
