2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2007 The aroma is weak but it has grassy European hops, cereal grains, and a touch of soured malt. The appearance is pale gold with a small head. The flavor is light but not bad. There is plenty of sweet malt and light bitter hops at the end without anything offensive. The palate is average for the style but I have to say this is better than most pale lagers.

Pale ales are quite a hard style to rate for me, it feels like its hard to tell the good from the bad. but this one is more on the good side. its got the taste of cereal malts, grass notes and crisp and refreshing taste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquor - Pours a crystal clear golden color with a one and a half finger thick white head. Lots of thin lacing. Aroma is bigtime skunk, herbal hops, and light grain. I like it. Flavor is light sweet grain, very light hops, and a touch of diacetyl. Light to medium body. Very nice for a Pale Lager.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clearly a Heineken rip-off, which shouldn’t be too hard to screw up, but this one really isn’t too good. Luckily you will drink it fast, without thinking about it too much.
