2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is hops, grass and malts. Flavour is grassy, papery, hoppy and very watery. Strong hayish hoppy aftertaste. But I still like the American hops in lagerbeer.

[Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival] Clear golden, small head. Grassy and grainy. Softly malty. Well structured and very drinkable. I really like this simple little beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy and light golden. Lively carbonation. Light yet chewy-smooth mouthfeel. Very doughy malts, with a honey-like sweetness. Hop aromas were nice (flowers, honey, faint spices, orange zest). Bitterness was mild; possibly adequate. Citrusy zing in the finish. Overall, pretty clean and easy to drink, without any crazy off flavors.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tasted 22/09/2006. 11oz bottle, with "scissors" cap, from BrewNZ.
Pale gold with no head. Funny aroma - biscuit dough, beans, spice and vinyl. Off-dry in the mouth with vinous and red apple notes in amongst it. Quite a pleasant flavour but it’s definitely no right. Very short, sans hops. Low caronation and light-medium weight. As bad as this beer smells, and as far off the mark it is, for a premium lager, I found it more drinkable than it reads.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thius beer pours a golden yellow with little to no white head. Kinda has a skunky smell to it. Maybe hops? Very clean taste. Notes of the hops in the flavor. Not a bad lager Considering I’m not a fan of the lagers. Cheers!

12 oz bottle at Full Sail Hood River. pours out a yellow with a small white head. To me it was just another Lager i don’t see any thing Premium in this one.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2007 Pours pale yellow w/ a shallow spritzy froth leaving a white ring.
Aroma is Heineken, baugh ! Light nectar w/ ample residual effers.
Flavors are malty and skunky (non-offensive) w/ a crisp, perfectly bittered finish.
Indeed a session brew but not anything out of the ordinary.
If you like Heineken you’ll appreciate it, and it’s from the great U.S. of A.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is what BMC SHOULD be like in theory. Very nice aroma, very clean flavor and a moderate hoppiness that finishes dry and crisp. The body is easy to drink, but with some heft to it.
