An average ale at best. Kind of tastes like a less heavy Budweiser. The others beers out of this brewery are much better

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear burnt orange with a thin ring of white head. Aroma of corn and grains with a hint of skunk and a little citrus. Taste is light bitter. Skunky herbal and citrus hops with some corn and grains and a little caramel. . Light bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not bad. I could drink this again, but probably wouldn’t seek it out.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle from Binnys (Naperville, IL). Split with the missus. Pours a straw pale yellowish hue, some gentle haze, stark light edges and body. A small frothy whitish head atop dies to a mellow film, light lacing, with a small ring remaining. Aromas are fairly light, some gentle cereal and bready malt, kiss of earth, gentle staleness. A bit underwhelming. Initial is lighter bodied, offering bready and cereal malts, gentle grass. Fairly clean and light, perhaps a bit watery into the middle. Gentle corn, cereal grains, bread and gentle sweetness, kiss of fruit. Dryness, a bit of spice, mellow bland qualities with a bit of paper into the finish. Overall, it’s underbodied and a bit watery, lacks flavor even for the style. Meh, pass almost every time. Comparable to most Macro Lagers, perhaps it has a slight edge over those.

12 ounce bottle bought at Binney’s in Bollingbrook, poured a light clear yellow color, aromas of grain, apples, and some adjuncts. Flavors are the same, not that great of a beer, but I have had worse...

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2012 It would be hard to express how disappointed I am with this beer. The price was extremely misleading. I use Budweiser as my default 2.5 comparison beer, which isn’t an impressive beer in itself, but this beer actually makes it seem like the "king." This beer poured like any cheap beer I can buy,and smelled like urine. Taste was on the same level. Very upset with this one.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is grass and apples and the appearance looks kind of like a pale golden cider. The flavor is grain sweetness mixed with a mild apple tartness. Had better, had worse.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very light yellow with little head. Aroma is light, but flavor has the canonical lager bite. I suppose that’s good.

12oz bottle 3/31/12 (Trader Joe’s Naperville)-44° in Lager Glass-Pours a light clear golden with a small white ring for a head. Aroma of sweetness, malt, and light hops. Taste of the same with a bit more hops. This light bodied brew was not bad and I was expecting worse. Would be a great mowing the lawn kinda brew.

At Shoeless Joes. Better than many macros but not a lot better. Some sweet maltiness. Some adjuncts maybe? Serving: Bottle

Bottle. Clear and watery in appearance. No real detectable odor. Think of a glorified lite beer.
