2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I wondered why this only cost me $2 at the bar. "$2 for a micro?" I asked. The bartender just shook her head and handed me the bottle. It was the only thing in the bar I hadn't tried yet.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A simple Lager with a bit of corn and some malt in its taste. Cannot remember any real aromas but that one hat a bit of acid in the finish. Not bad at all.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from Rudat in Dortmund, US state number 19 / 51 for me. The beer has got a clear golden colour with an low head and medium to thin body. Aroma of mild hops and malt. Taste of mild hops, malt, straw and barley. Mild fruity hints. Refreshing, yet with an unpleasant thin strawy finish. Drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
For being what it is, a North American Lager, I think this was really a good beer (far better than Miller, Budweiser etc.). Rather sweet in taste, but after all those IPAs (and there are faaaaaaar to many of them, try and brew something else????), I found it very refreshing. Will drink again next time I come to New Orleans, sure sir!

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
12 fl oz bottle from BOTW (Rochester), served cool in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear deep golden with a frail off-white head.
Aroma: Lots of diacetyl, a little sweet corn/grain maltiness, maybe a touch of pepperiness from the hops.
Palate: Medium body, full carbonation, not slick as expected from the diacetyl.
Flav.: Lots of diacetyl with an odd fruitiness, kinda gross; off-dry with minimal bitterness and a buttery/fruity/nasty finish.
The first of the stash from Rochester. Not a good start!

"Definite honey-like sweetness, though i can’t say if there’s really any honey. otherwise a pretty non-descript lightly hopped (think hay) lager. Not that bad, but definitely nothing special either. refreshing enough on a hot day."
