2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
From the can at Abbey’s Real BBQ. Not amazing, but better than the Pilsner, which surprised me. If I had to drink a lager, this wouldn’t be a bad choice.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a can into a pint glass, appearance is a murky golden shade with a thick head. Aroma was not great, had a yeasty odor. A light bodied flavor, similar to others in its category.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
So where exactly is this from? The can didn’t mention Minhas at all but what appeared to be a contract brewer in Wisconsin called MDII. And so Fat Cat is I suppose a dba for Minhas, and contracted at MDII in Wisconsin. Doesn’t sound like a recipe for success in the form of a good beer, but hey, this ain’t bad. Its a vienna for sure, with that toasty malt nose and flavor, melanoidins hinting at a vinous like fruitiness, a grapey flavor I’ve encountered in some bocks. Balanced. Hazy amber-gold color, smallish head. Drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can: Honey nose. Hazy amber, thick lacy head. Dark honey, tinny. Bitter parsley finish. Hmm, a lager from Minhas. I expected the worst, probably a lifeless, flavorless macroish pale lager. What I got was a lager with a fairly rich malt bill and actual hoppiness. It’s not without its detractors as I didn’t care for the metallic qualities, but this was more than respectable.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a true amber color that appears to glow in the class. Aroma is of smelly sweetness almost if the beer was left out to spoil. Taste is a bit off, I can taste a tinge of caramel mixed with malt. The mixture of this beer is off that gives it a bready flavor.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
In the can thanks to a nice trading partner. Pours a rust orange appearance with a big khaki head. Slight butter, toffee, caramel, and herbal / grassy aroma. Twangy fruity, chewy, slightly metallic, very sweet flavor. A lot of sugar in the aftertaste. Scroll past this weak shit.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy amber with a pillowy off white cap. Nose is sweet and caramel/biscuity with a touch of cracker. Nice calm sweet flavor of toasted and sweet english muffin, a kiss of earthy caramel, and wheat-like tones. Not shabby, and really kinda enjoyable.

Apple, cider, acetaldehyde. Maltiness is appropriate. Seems clean. Is what it is.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz can pours a clear caramel amber with some thin, white head. Nose of corn, biscuit, malt, honey cough drops. Flavor is the same, very much like a honey cough drop, malt, slightly floral. Sweet finish. Too one note.
