2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. light golden thin dissipating head. Did I catch a whiff of apple? Very faint aroma. Taste more flavorful. Tastes like your average beer. High carbonation.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Out of the bottle at home. Pours a darkened straw - looks like a urine sample in my mason jar. Almost no white head and little carbonation. No aroma - which can be a good thing for the style. Crisp dry taste with oxidized finish. Pretty uneventful - nothing good here but it also lacks many of the off flavors of a cheap lager. Some chewy grain.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
330ml bottle (Stockmann, Riga)
Bland aroma, a touch of perfume. Pale, some persistence to the light head. Obnoxious papery palate. Nasty scrape-it-off finish. Noxious retronasals. Fairly clearly in the "nasty" camp.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle sampled at home, 330ml:
Grainy smelling with a little bit of corn in there to begin with. Overall the aroma is quite subdued and hard to detect initially. There is a little bit of skunk but mainly it is sweet smelling & faint hops.
Light amber colour in appearance with good clarity & a foamy white head that is initially about a finger & a half tall before gradually reducing to a thin, soapy lacing after a few sips.
The bulk of the flavour comes from a mix of bread, corn & sweet adjuncts. It is quite well balanced though.
Light bodied & smooth most of the way through until it becomes a little chewy right at the end. There is also some decent carbonation.
An average, macro pale lager that is better than a lot of its competitors without really being excellent. It is smooth & goes down easily.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Shared bottle at Cardinal. Pours a head that with little head retention. Little lacing. Light straw-like color. Aroma resembles a lot of Sol and Corona, light malts and corn. Very sweet beer and low-medium bittering hops. Not very satisfying for a regular beer drinker, but a good alternative for people with gluten allergy.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Shared bottle at Cardinal. Pours clear paale golden with a rocky,off- white head leaving little lacing. Aroma rich with light malts, boiled vegetables and sugar. Heavy sweet and medium bitter flavors with strong cardboard notes. The bitterness has a turnip side to it that is unappealing. Medium to full body. Light metallic. Dry tongue. Not recommended unless you need a rate fix to make you feel good.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml single from "Lifesource",Salem. $2.15
Typical bright yellow lager..woth reasonable bubbly white head.
Light aromas..mostly hay like,slightl earthy.
Taste is again average..not too sweet though which is a blessing, some honey tones and a drying bitterness at the end. OK.
Nice on the palate..good carbonation..dry finish.
Overall a nice enough lager and if i had the medical need this onen would suit me fine.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Maybe for those that can’t have gluten this is good, otherwise...golden with decent head and lacing. Oder of corn and malt, taste is watery with a distinct hop finish. On a level with Bud Light, et. al.
