2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Cascade. Clear golden with a short-lived head. Clean, somewhat metallic taste. Not a premium beer by many peoples standards, but a perfectly drinkable standby.

Easy drinkability. Very light beer. It is noticeable an industrialized beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
5.2%ABV. Pale Lager.
This tapped out a deep gold. 6°SRM.
Nose had some clean beery aromas, lager-like with pale malt sweetness.
Mouthfeel was watery. Palate had some pleasant smokiness with pale malt sweetness and a faint bitterness of raw peanut skins.
Finish is clean, light and abbreviated with some faint herbal notes.
A good and proud lager with more than an interesting backstory.
Goes on Favorites List!

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
375ml bottle into schooner glass. Light caramel nose. Amber beer with diminished head. A few bubbles. Watery mouthfeel with abrupt sour malt finish. The blurb on the bottle is describing a completely different beer to what I’m drinking, something wrong here. Blurb or beer?
