2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Gold pour with off-white head. Aroma of pale malt, slight hops and fruit. Tastes pale malty with slight hopcit, honey, and apricot notes. Watery palate without a great deal of complexity, this one missed the mark for me.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Not impressed or honored with the fact that CBW has converted an alter to a brewing stand. Also, I am surprised that this is considered a pale lager. It is more like a german pilsner. 12 oz brown bottle. Pours like a slightly darker, but not much darker, pale yellow american beer. Aroma is clean and crisp. It possesses a hoppy aroma absent from most pale lagers. There is no head but the aroma is nice. Hoppy flavor, but no overwhelming like a pale ale or IPA. The hop flavor is pleasantly there but it is not backed by the severe bitterness that lingers. Nice carbonation that tingles the back of your tongue as it rolls down your throat. As you drink it there is a building hoppy accent in your mouth. Nice hoppy aroma in the smell continues. Finish leaves you with a medium bitter personality that lingers for a while. Would never think this is a typical pale yellow american lager....too much personality. Must be in the wrong category.

12oz bottle acquired in trade with lukin013 (thanks!). Poured a medium and slightly hazy golden color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas of grain and a light lemony citrus. Tastes follow. Thinner body.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap @ the Church Brew Works. Super clear yellow with white head. Aroma is malt and skunk. Flavor is the same. This beer is a wheaty version of Stella Artois.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the brewpub. Pale golden color with a compact white head with fair retention. Minimal lacing. Light hops and nuts in the aroma. Light body with a clean mouthfeel, and mild but flavorful hops taste. There is a bit of grass and malt in there too. The finish is effervescent and lightly bitter. Pretty good for the style.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice bready aroma. Clear, medium light yellow gold with no head. Initially a lightly candied, slight citrus presentation, then it rounds out to a medium light bittering. Medium mouth -- not too fizzy. Initial finish is sweet, then a lingering bitterness. Fair. Good for a brewpub light lager offering.

Pours a slightly hazy bubbly gold color with a bubbly white head. Aroma is kinda sweet maltiness but no real distinguishing characteristics. Flavor is light and crisp with a nice slight hop bitterness. Sweet flavor. Overall, damn good pale lager.

On Tap, Church Brew Works
Poured Golden. Bubbly white head. Aroma barely present, but I got hints of grains and malt. Flavor is light. Notes of malt, but nothing that was overpowering. Thin to medium bodied. Smooth and easily drinkable. Good for a hot night.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle, via CMUBEERMAN. Pours a light gold with a small fizzy white head that retracted to a thin film quickly. Aroma is packed with a corn scent, minimal grainy pale malt, and a little garbage juice. Very light in flavor as well, with zero hop bitterness, minimal malt, and lots of corn on the finish. Mouthfeel is thin and fizzy as expected, maybe a 4 or 5 if rated "to style" of a Pale Lager, but I guess I don’t. Overall, not really sure why a small craft brewery/brewpub would bottle this. Who’d pay craft prices for Coor’s Light quality.
