   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
CanIHave4Beers (3260) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Pours a nice pale golden with one of the worst heads I’ve ever seen on a beer ever. We’re talking like where you get a cask ale and it shows up with a bunch of loose big bubbles on top.. .although the loose big bubbles on this one stick around… weird, just weird.

The aroma is pleasant enough, grainy, a touch fruity, with some light sweetness and corniness. Decidedly not great, but inviting enough.

Flavor is pretty quintessential pale lager, to the point where I really have to tip my hat to it. Really nicely balanced between grainy malt, mild corny adjuncts, and a pleasant hop bitterness and grassy flavor… all while keeping a mild but never overbearing sweetness…

The palate is a touch flat, but not terribly thin, and the lower carbonation doesn’t seem to be too much trouble in the way of flavor and perception of the beer generally.

What can I say? I would say that I would happily drink a few of these in an evening, but the truth is that I have, numerous evenings. It does’t hold the place in my heart that Point Special does, but it’s a damn good alternative to many pale lagers that are far more famous.

16 oz. can pours a pale yellow with small white head. Aroma is slighly grainy. Taste is a little on the sweet side with a bitter, slighly metallic finish. Body is light but not as watery as I expected. When I grew up not too far from New Ulm, MN, this was usually the cheapest beer to be had. I’m glad that Schell’s revived this old brand (a former competitor?). An average cheap lager, which still serves its purpose.

Gave this one a shot out of the bottle. Wasn’t expecting a lot and this basically met that lower expectation.

My dad bought this all the time because he found out I hated it and gave me a headache. I never touched it after my first beer. This the worst beer ever. Black Label is better and that sucks too.

hopscotch (9158) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 5, 2011
Can… Clear, light yellow lager with a small, fizzy, white head. The aroma is of piss, light pepper and a touch of skunky hops. Light to medium-bodied with tingly carbonation. Canned corn sweetness and very low bitterness. Thin and watery. No real balance. Watery, sweet corn finish.

Bottle, thanks to akevitt for sharing. Pours a very light pale yellow body with a thin white head. Light aroma of malt and not much else. Flavor is the same with a light corn sweetness. Light on the palate and very drinkable.

Great old school American beer made with the original recipe. Good sweet and lightly sour flavor.

Pale color. Straw gold color with a corn & grain aroma and flavor. A little metallic on the finish.
