Up front it is nicely herbal and hoppy, finishes watery and plasticy. Half way there.

TheAlum (5530) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - AUG 29, 2012
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.

b3shine (5142) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Bottle to pint. Looks solid; a transparent golden orange with foamy white head and lively carbonation. Smells and tastes doughy and a little skunky with an average (at best) mouthfeel. Meh.

jgb9348 (4635) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2012
Clear golden coloured body with a honey glow and a few bubbles rising from the bottom with a two centimetre tall just of-white head. Aroma of light malt, a small amount of saaz or relatively lower alpha acid hops, some citrus and a faint hint of sugars noticeable. Light-bodied; Very watery flavour at first with a touch of malt and body later on in the taste. Aftertaste shows some citrus, a little hop nugget and a touch of sweetness at the end. Overall, not a great beer, but nothing bad - just a bit muted and about par for the course on this style. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Trader Joe’s in Chicago (Ontario St), Illinois on 03-December-2011 for US$1.50 sampled at home in Washington on 19-January-2012.

Pailhead (4606) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Bottle: The aroma is pretty nonexistent. There’s just a hint of bread/cereal and grass. It pours a transparent gold with a one finger white head that quickly fades to a thin film. There is some decent thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with with a very quick dose of light honey and cereal. The finish has light grass with just a hint of apple. It’s light bodied with moderate-lively carbonation that is a bit prickly at times. Overall, there just isn’t much here. Sure, more flavor than your standard BMC, but this is still pretty bland. I guess you can call it a thirst quencher since there just isn’t much here to get offended by. That also means there’s nothing here to look forward to or get excited about either. There’s certainly worse out there.

nuplastikk (4269) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 13, 2013
OK...basic lesson: Stevens Point makes bad beer. Buttery offensive aroma. An absolute butter bomb, complete amateur hour swill.. This should never have even been considered to hit the market, Seriously failing on all accounts. Bullshit consumer fraud.

wlajwl (3745) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 26, 2012
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.

burg326 (3529) - Florida, USA - AUG 2, 2012
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...

Headbanger (3226) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 31, 2012
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.

rumproasts (2734) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 18, 2013
bottle. Golden with small head. Lager with hoppy bite. Like all classic Chicago beers, it’s brewed in Wisconsin. Is there anything good they brew at Stevens Point?
