2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2007 The aroma has both barley and corn malt with weak grassy hops. The appearance is pale gold with a small head. The flavor is like the aroma but also a little bit fruity. The palate is thin with an astringent aftertaste. This is an interesting take on a lager but I am not all together sure it’s one I would want in a drinking session. As a side note, The bottle is an 11oz slick looking bullet shape. Cool

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
11 oz grenade. Pours light gold. Almost no nose. I get a little bit of malt and thats about it. Light and mellow on the palate. Slight notes of sweet hops and malt. Finishes short and cereal-grainy. Inoffensive but altogether forgettable. Truly lives up to its name.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Grenade bottle purchased at Nugget in Davis, CA. Sweet, grainy, corny, malty nose present with some slight floral hops detected retronasally. Transparent yellow body with a frothy white head and nice lacing. Crisp, grainy, malty, cereal-like flavors to start. A bit overly carbonated in the middle. Finishes with a light herbal, floral, earthy hoppiness. Pretty fair to its name. A nice, flavorful session lager without a ton of adjuncts and off-flavors. A little overcarbonated, but all in all, a nice effort.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours golden with a medium crisp white head. Very mellow in the smell like most lagers. Light citrus hops and grain. Taste is mellow as well. More grain than anything. It does get somehwat skunked out in the aftertaste. Decent beer to drink with a meal, nothing more.

Clear gold/yellow. 1cm dense, white cap. Grainy cereal malt flavor and aroma. Light crisp hops. A bit skunky in the finish. Light/medium body, Good when you’re eating food too spicy to really enjoy your beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Faint malty aroma. Light body, light flavour, light finish with a touch of sweetness and no bite. This is a good workaday hot weather, hot labour beer, something to drink after working on the roof or in the garden.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
11 oz bottle via Roth’s. Pours a clear gold with a small head. Subtle nose with some subdued malts and hops. Taste is very nice. Starts with some sweet malts, honey, some orange, then some nice toasted grains come through, then some mellow floral malts, and finishes crisp and clean. The toasted grain aftertaste lingers quite nicely and makes me want another drink right away. No adjuncts detected. Light body. Moderate carbonation. One of the best lagers i have had. This will be a new staple in my home.

You can’t beat it on a hot day. Pours golden, I guess....never actually poured one out of the cool bottle. Kinda earthy, grainy, some hop finish. Nothing special, but a great way to finish the day.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
From Northcoast Coop in Eureka, CA. This was a 11 oz stubby bottle. It poured an odd yellow coler with not much head. Not a lot of flavor and what exists is malts and hops. A drinkable beer, but remarkable bland. Better than Budweiser though.
