2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a lightly hazy golden with orange notes and a medium creamy white head that laced. Aroma of grassy notes, corn, bready malt and citrus. Flavor of the same, dry and crisp but pushing thin. Too much like a macro lager for me. Nothing to help set it apart.

Can. Gold color with a thin head. Light marshmallow and dusty grain aroma. Easy malty flavor, moderate bitterness that’s in the earthy and floral realm. Not complex, but an easily drinkable session beer.

Can: The aroma has some honey sweetness along with some light hay and grass. It pours a transparent gold with an inch tall white head with good retention and lacing. The flavor starts with some light honey sweetness and just a touch of citrus. The finish is moderately grassy. Nothing special but easy drinking and somewhat refreshing. Light-medium bodied somewhat lively carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A good looking, golden colored lager with a very thick, tall head that lasts a long time, and a thick lacing on the glass that would embarrass many Belgian ales. Standard lager aroma, reminiscent of Blatz as a child, when I would take a sip from Grandpa’s glass. Smooth malt flavor and very light hops, but definitely some sweetness to the point it would be hard to drink many of these. Unusually thick palate. A well constructed beer that delivers on the palate and appearance, with a bit more to offer than the ordinary yellow lager.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear golden yellow, medium white head fades into a thin layer and leaves some wispy lacing behind. Aroma of grains, grassy hops and sweet malt. Taste is sweet with a bit of grassy hops, honey and malt. A touch of corn and mild bitterness on the finish. Easy to drink and even easier to forget.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz can. Golden-bronze, filtered. Thin, oily head. Sweet, sugary, beer factory aroma. Pretty shabby, with that sugary sweet six-row thing going on. Tastes more in line with something Minhas/Berghoff would do. There is a bit more hop character than your typical macro, but the six-row just cheapens the experience. There is some malt toastiness in it, and it doesn’t suffer as bad as other macro lagers when it approaches cellar and room temperatures.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared by shigadeyo. Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. The aroma is sweet malts, grainy, bready, with just a splash of honey; pretty much what I would expect from a pale lager. The flavor is sweet malty, grainy, mild grassy notes with a hint of bitterness at the back. This turned out to be not as bad as I originally expected.

Can, thanks tytoanderso. Nose is corny and sweet, a little plastic/rubber. Flavor is sweet and with some very mild hop bitterness. More flavor than most shitty pale lagers, but still pretty shitty.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Nice pour for a lager, slightly hazy with a decent head that fades after a few. Smell is just plain clean, perhaps a slight olfactory of high gravity. Oooh, quite strong personality for a lager, reminds me a bit of that pig’s eye I just rated. Yes, comes across more like a high gravity pale lager brew in flavor. Difficult at times. Same with finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz can from Atom, thanks Adam! Pours a clear, yellow-gold colored body with a finger-width, fizzy, off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a light lacing. Aroma has some thin pear and melon fruits with a grainy, lightly sweetened, corny malt backing. Flavor is similar. Lightly sweetened, grainy, corny malts with a bit of a melon fruit and a touch of grass. Finishes mostly dry with a light, corny sweetness and a very light, grainy and grassy bitterness. Short aftertaste following a light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, not the worst pale lager, but certainly pretty boring. Corny, grainy, lightly sweetened, and somewhat fruity. Eh...
