3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the 2009 MD Spring Fest. Light yellow with a hint of green. Super filtered. Refreshing middle-of-the-road Helles. Well balanced, with a hoppy crispness. Some doughy yeast. All around a good straight forward session beer.

Lets just put it this way.. this beer is made for the brewery to make money off of people who think Corona is the nectar of the gods. I can’t blame them for trying to make money. And yes, this beer blows

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Arundel Mills. Golden yellow color w/a moderate white head. Aroma of corn & bread dough. Kind of a basic, easy drinking, light, summer brew. This will never be confused w/a classic, world class brew, but it’s not trying to be. It’s just a beer you can knock a few back & enjoy w/o thinking about it too much. Some flavors of bread dough & hay, maybe a little corn. Very slight hop bite. Decent mouthfeel, not too thin. Plesent finish.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thought this was pretty good for a crappy light beer. If you compare it to other pale lagers, its nice. Sweet, grainy, good flavor. Most of all, its clean with no skunk.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft @ Bel Air location. Boring, watery lager. Seems odd that a brewpub would make a Corona clone - that’s basically what this is. Drinkable, but not DuClaw’s best offering.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sparkling gold, fizzy white head. Soft cornbread and faint earthy citrus aromas. Flavor is corn and lightly sweetened citrus throughout. Well balanced and refreshing. Light bodied with light carbonation. This would be easy to put a growler down on a typical MD summer afternoon...

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
An average Cerveza. Enjoyed as a part of the sampler from the Arundel Mills location. Threw a lemon in the glass and it ended up tasting like lemon. Very Corona-like and nothing more, except maybe a fuller body. That’s it.

yeah...pretty much duclaw’s version of a corona. not too much to it...a little sweeter than your typical light lager...pretty drinkable. i’m content to just have it the one time a while back...just getting to adding some of my old tasting notes.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
20090707 Tap at Bel Air location. Meaty and malty with light vegetal flavors. Mostly reminds of white sandwich bread. Metallic aromas. Little to no hop presence. Husky. I swore it seemed adjuncty, but the folks behind the bar swore it was all malt so...okay. With beers like this on tap, I don’t get why the brewpub has to stock something like Miller Lite, yet they do.
