3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The stubby with the novelty cap takes me back to the first time I got drunk, on Lucky Lager. Pours clear gold with a thin creamy white head. Clean light caramel and mild hop aroma. Nice body punched up by a slight gassiness. Very clean flavor balancing light malt, some caramel, and moderate floral and spicy hops. Really quite good, particularly for the style, which I would qualify as (American) Premium Lager. This time I won’t puke.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
You can’t knock the stubbies! Pours with a short lived billowing white head. Body is clear yellow, light bubbles. Aroma is corn, maybe a few hops. Light grassy palate with some corny maltiness, but not overly offensive like BMC. Finish has a soft floral hoppiness. I suspect Full Sail will make bank off this beer, as it is very approachable to the passive beer drinker and the NW has been missing the stubby love since Olympia stopped bottling in them a few years ago. Stubbies rule!!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2007 For nine dollars a twelve pack its not a bad deal. Pours light amber with a fast falling white head. Lightly malty and lightly hoppy, well i guess everything is very mild in flavor, but i kinda guessed that before i tried it. Kinda tastes a bit flat, but thats how i think most macros taste. Not as funky as most macros, and a good all around tailgating brew.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
According to liquidsolutions.com, this is a homage to the pre-Prohibition days of American brewing, before the Big 3 bastardized the scene. Not bad, but one can definitely tell that the macros picked up where this style left off. Pours a rich gold with minimal head. Aroma is faint hops and straw. Flavor is diluited hops with a bit of banana in the finish. Palate is watery. Not bad; in fact, it’s quite respectable in that it lives up to its claim of being a "session beer." If it’s not too expensive in your neck of the woods, pick one up.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer evacuates the 11-ounce stubby brown bottle a limpid gold with a modest bright white head that fades quickly, leaving a velum like coating of lace upon the glass. Nose is the standard lager malt, crisp and clean, the start is sweet and the grain profile light to medium with the top light in feel. Finish is stern in its acidity, the hops apropos to the style, a decent drinking beer, that I think would make a nice “Session beer”, quite dry and thirst quenching.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2005 I can’t bring myself to pour this beer into a glass because it’s so much more fun to drink it out of the quirky bottle. This is a quality product - well flavored and balanced, smooth, pleasant aroma and did I mention the cool bottle?

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Grainy aroma. Light golden body with good white foamy head. Good beer flavor balce of malts and hops. No strong bitterness in this beer. Decent swill you could eat a pretzel with cheese on it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small white head that settles quickly, sparse bits of stringy lace left behind. Pale, straw color, good clarity. Nose is lightly malty, no discernable corny aromas, lightly grassy hops. Body is light, crisp. Medium dry maltiness, lighlty spicey with faint citrus notes. Dry finish. Cute little quaff. Thanks to zathrus13 for the trade!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. A golden color with a white head. Sweet corn and malty aroma with a smooth velvet palate. At first I was impressed, but the sweetness soon became annoying.
