3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle poured to my trusty 1/2 pint taster with a clear, golden amber color, noticeable effervescence, modest, slightly off white, bubbly head foam, and clingy, ribbons and dashes of lacing. The aroma was typical, light, lager scent, light grain, light breadiness, a little fruit and a touch of sweetness. The flavor added some moderate hop bitterness with ampted carbonation, in a light body. Refreshingly sessionable. Not bad! I’ll settle for this over the macros any day. Cellared well for about 6 mos. with no discernible oxidation.

Bottle. Typical lager gold, lackluster white cap. Horrible rotten veggies aroma, really bad. Grainy with hints of sulfur. Drainpour.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 oz bottle. Aroma of adjunct grain; somewhat spicy. Looks like your standard pale lager--maybe a little more golden in color, definitely better lacing than the average for this style. Taste is salty, maybe a little spicy, bland. Carbonation is high; finish is slightly bitter. Just slightly above average for this style. It’s definitely drinkable, just not very interesting.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear dark gold with a small whitish head. Aroma is grainy; unprocessed grain, thats all. Slightly more flavor than your Bud/Miller/Coors and a slightly better flavor at that, though that’s not saying much. Thin, crisp mouthfeel, high carbonation. One of the better pale lagers I’ve had in recent memory. Overall, fair.

Well, this one smells pretty good. Then it tastes like just another pale lager. Somewhat thick a little funky, eh.

The aroma and the taste have a milky hint. The aftertaste has a lingering bite. There is an overall sour alcohol flavor.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Yowee! What formidable head this one has, springing forth from the bottle with at least five fingers’ worth of foamy ivory froth. It did fall away rather quickly, but at least left a smallish trail of lace behind, on top of a nice gold colour. Now for the sad part. Aroma was slightly sweet, but didn’t really suggest anything else. Dang! The initial taste was not inviting, maybe a bit sour, but not skunky or ’off’. Aftertaste was rather like paper, with a just okay mouthfeel albeit on the thin side. I did NOT like this one.

I don’t know how to describe this beer, very mellow no hops. Yellow as can be. Not my favorite Weinhard.
