2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Village Pub, McCarren Airport. Pale clear gold, white cream. Oh god. Eggy, stale aroma. Sip is ridiculous, this is more like a buttery amber than their actual amber. No hops really, some metallic off bittering by the finish. Body is not bad, almost crisp with nice carb, but the flavors are pretty offputting, at least if I want to think of this as an IPA. Not good.

Hmmmm. Not bad. Not great. Can you imagine the scene, the situation, when that GREATEST BREWER OF ALL TIME, VAL BLATZ HIMSELF got off the boat at Ellis Island??? The revelry? The debauch? The mayhem? Indeed it was so. Or so I am told....or believe. But, I digress. while I welcome this beer to our great land, I cannot believe it will ever supplant the greatness that was brought by that GREAT TEUTONIC ADVENTURER, VAL BLATZ and his self-named ambrosia from the Elysian Fields. Think about it.

(draft @ Ellis Island Casino & Brewery - Las Vegas, NV) Hazy orange pour with a thick white head. Hoppy and dry aroma with hints of come light citrus fruits. Flavor starts off slightly fruity and bitter with a dry and bitter middle and a dry finish. [3/22/16]

1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
$2 for a tall was a plus, probably the only one. Sad aroma, acceptable color, disappointing flavor. It’s a casino with a brewery gimmick.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale in color and light in body. Lots of vegetation in the flavors. Grass, hay, and dried leaves. Does not get better as it warms. Glad it was only $2

Draft at LAS. Clear yellow color. Aroma of white pepper and straw. Tastes like a lager (should it?).

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at the brewery/casino. Very light IPA in color and body. Mild grassy flavor with little hops. Not the easiest drinking IPA. Not anything that stands out. Overall, I can call this beer okay, but that’s about it.

A couple of growlers shared recently on a Vegas trip. It had some odd, fruity, berry notes and a light peppery spice. Not awful, but nothing to special here. Pretty easy to drink.
