1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilburs Fort Collins. Plucked this retired whale dong from the old beer section. Fuck yeah. Pours a clear yellow appearance with a small white head. Huge DMS, butter, lemon, bullshit aroma. Tangy lemon, slightly tart, watery, fuck you flavor. WHAT THE FUCK. Every malt liquor I’ve had tonight (and I’ve had quite a few, bra) has been better than this bullshit.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light straw color with fizzy head that has moderate retention. Strong aroma of corn dominates. Corn and sweet grain taste with very little hops. Thin mouthfeel. Highly carbonated. Not very good at all.

Bottle. Yellow in color, decent head. Smells like hay. Taste very watery. Just not very good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Del Norte Orale has a thin-to-medium, white head and a hazy, straw appearance, with some bubbles and minimum lacing. The aroma is faint, but one can detect sweet, sugary, lightly-roasted grains and a hint of lemon. Flavor is of lemony, sweet grain, white bread, and some hop bitterness in the back taste. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Del Norte Orale finishes crisp, refreshing, and mostly dry. It’s a simple, yet enjoyable beer. RJT

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pour on tap at Art and Ale, clear yellow pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of corn, grain and husky notes, some wet grain as well, hints of oats, slight spice notes. Taste is a mix of sweet corn and wet grain, some slight grass and biscuit, finishing fairly watery, highly carbonated. Not much good going on here.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. Pale gold with a small ring of creamy bubbles. Aroma is light dry grass and husky caramelized grain. Taste is the same, but leans a nit more to the dry grassy hop, which is nice. Also some metallic notes show up later. Light-medium body is soft, but tingly, and has a delicate balance. Pretty decent if you must indulge in the pale lager style, but I can’t imagine there wouldn’t be much better ales wherever this beer is sold.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Actually not bad, really. Clear yellow, spongy white head. Some corn, some grass. Crisp palate. Better than it needs to be.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Half Time. Pours light gold with very little white head. Light grain/malt aroma with very light grassy hop. Med minu body. It’s not watery, but... Flavor is definitely sweet corn with a very little grassy bitter. More pleasant than the Cinco.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours clear straw yellow with white fizzy head. Unlike its cousin, the Cinco, it actually has a somewhat pleasant grainy profile to it both in aroma and flavor. Light, water, over carbonated body. Over all, non offensive, light tastiness and sessionable.
