3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared with my father-in-law (thanks JoePeesie!). Pours a pale canary yellow with minimal white head. Aroma is mild of burnt caramel with a touch of pine. Better balance in the flavor with more hops presence. Slight cooked vegetable presence in the finish. Soft carbonation. Light overall and not bad.

Bottle. Pours a light straw color. Small white head. Some lacing. Grainy aroma. Clean and dry with some mild bitter. I was intrigued by this when I picked it up as a single. Then I realized it wasn’t even brewed in Chicago. Not a terrible beer at all, just very uneventful.

Bottle. Pale yellow. Sour, citrus and hay. A little malty and thicker than I thought.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle pour to shaker. Light straw yellow. Nothing wrong with it, but flavor lacked any amount of malt, hops, or anything distinct.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle from Srevens Point, d’oh!!!!! Sweet and cheap, with a little more soapy one dimensional hops. Why on Earth would anyone contract brew with Stevens Point? Absolutely loses points for being called Chicago Brewing Company and not even brewing in the state. Buttery bullshit factory extract undertones. I am seriously pissed I bought a six pack of this.

Lager Glass-Pours an orangish amber with a small white head. Aroma of hops, orange, and malt. Taste of the same with a bit more hops, sweetness fills the mouth with citrus on the back end. This medium bodied brew is very enjoyable

Late December, 2012. 12oz bottle from HyVee Milan, I believe. I think I drank this in a hot tub. Eh. Fizzy golden pour with a mediocre head that fades. Faint citrus in the aroma with biscuit and caramel. The flavor is unsurprisingly much the same - faint hops with dominating biscuity malt. Eh.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear dark orange with a half finger of white head. Aroma of citrus and some caramel. Taste is light bitter. Orange citrus and some caramel. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation but not much of a finish. Overall, not bad. I would drink it again, but not seek it out.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a 12oz bottle, is a clear bright pale gold color with a very thin white bubbly head, aroma is of older hops with a little bit of grain, the flavor is really bland and nothing stands out, no real hop presence, pretty much tastes like a higher level bud light, swing and a miss again in this mix pack I picked up.
