2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2007 Lemon yellow body and loose, sudsy white head. Aroma of melon, tropical fruits, light butter, and nutty pale malt. Diacetyl leads in the flavor, along with some light bell pepper tones and an element of sweet corn and medium bitterness in the finish. I would have pegged this as a Dortmunder. Regardless, this is not a memorable beer experience.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden color with a thick and fizzy white head that dissipates steadily. Spotty lacing around the top of the glass. The aroma is faintly hoppy with a hint of malt. Light-bodied and crisp with a weak floral hops flavor supported by a surprisingly sweet undertone. Malty flavor stays there through the finish, making this one lean toward the sweet side throughout. The finish is rather short as well. Below average.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a golden murky color with a head that wouldn’t stop. No particular after taste, no particular taste at all. Could easily compare it to one of the big three main beers

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Wow! One of the biggest, foamiest, long lasting heads that I’ve yet to witness! Not too much aroma other than stale hops & light malt. I drank this beer ice cold. Very mild golden lager with a smooth malt taste. I could drink many of these in one sitting. Aftertaste was slight flowery hops. All in all it was kinda sorta pretty okay.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Light beany malt aroma, not very sweet or anything. Has a mild dose of hops, but mainly is gassy buttery beany stale smell. Dull amber-gold clear, with no head or retention. Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Starts dull with some malty character. Nothing overpowering, it’s just ’there’. No great hoppiness and a mild bitter finish. After is unremarkable, with a mild astringent bitterness and gassy tangy residues. Bit of cooked corn in there, too. How this ever got verified as a pilsener, I"ll never know. It is a pale lager at best with a bit of extra bitterness.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2006 this beer is a poor lager -but as a pilsner, well it’s just plain bad. I fear I might have bought a bad case. Some of the bottles were way over carbonated.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden yellow appearance with a large, billowy white head. Muted aroma; malty, a bit flowery. Light to medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel. Smooth, malty taste; some hops are detectable but not prominent. Thankfully lacks the vegatel, rice/corn adjuncts that often spoil this style.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Light gold in color with a bit of haze and a medium white head. Moderate aroma, cereal grains, light bread, mild hops in the background. MIlder flavor, a touch grainy again with some lighter bitterness on the end. Lighter bodied. Fair.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a medium golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is sour tangy malts. The flavor is sour tangy malts with a light yeasty undertone and a light sour finish. The body is smooth.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow body with a very thin dissapating white head. Grassy, skunked aroma. Thin, macro-like body with a slight caramel fruity finish. No real flavor here. Maybe the least impressive Flying Bison brew I’ve tried yet.
