Similar to the other modern-day Henry’s products. Crisp, enough, drinkable enough, sessionable, but obviously a Miller product. Golden-straw body with a bubbly white head. Mild grassy hops and biscuit malts. A little metallic and...eh

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours clear light gold with a lacy white head. Aroma of grass, toffee and creamed corn. Light body, medium carbonation. Not much in the way of taste, the finish an astringent and floral nothingness. Kind of a broken little beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Special thanks to riversideAk for a chance to taste this beer as an extra in my trade with him. Label is quite a bit different than what is pictured here. Darker and more orange than the pale yellow american beer. Aroma is somewhat slag like. Taste has some of that slag in there too. This beer is a little more intense than I expected for a blonde ale or lager, I was thinking a laid back brew that was perhaps a repeatable session brew. It is a little intense on the rotting hay flavors, but in a good way. Mild to medium bitterness that hangs with you thru the finish. Good tingly carbonation thru-out. Overall not quite as mild as I was expecting for a blond, most of the blondes I have had (beers that is) are lower alky and gentle-manlike in their attitude. Many other blond beers I have had have been more girlish in their attitude and easier to accept!

Bottle... Poured gold with a white head. Aroma of cereal grain malt and a crispness from hops. Strong grains of malt in the flavor and mild herbal characters from the citrus hops. Lemon in the finish.

Another very simple and inexpensive, good to have around everyday kind of beer. Grainy cereal malt with some light herbal hoppiness. Not much to it, but a great thirst quencher, when you don’t want to open something complicated and need a beer to distract you.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a light and fizzy gold with a medium white head. The aroma is light hops and tons of malt and corn. The beer was your basic Pale Lager but with a bunch of hops thrown in that made this beer decent. It was balanced and pretty easygoing. Not bad.
