Slightly better than the private reserve due to a bit more hoppiness. But essentially boring.

Thin and watery, but has more flavor than most macrobrews. A step up from PBR.

Pleasant, but nothing special about it, might as well get 12 stones for the same effect.

Unimpressive. Poor washed out color. Faint hop aroma. Has a liquid dish soap taste to it. Weak flavor. Not very memorable.

It goes down smooth without any aftertaste. I put a lime wedge in mine. It is weak. I think the alcohol content is 4.61%. It is one of the cheapest beers at the liquor store here in the people’s republic of utah. Would I get it again...not likely or only if I was desperate and on a budget.

A thin, watery, golden-colored brew. I like the review just prior to mine indicating it smells like "paperclip and armpit". While I've never tasted a paperclip, armpit seems an appropriate description. Insulting to the American Pale Ale category and all it stands for.

Pale, foamy, looks and smells like skunked Heineken. Hints of paperclip and armpit. This is the worst of the bunch, a true drain pour.

This has lots of charactaristics of an international lager. Light hops and pilsnery malts, not too great. Watery and metallic. Eh.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2004 Poured like your standard American beer. This has a malty aroma. They have balls calling this a "pale ale". This is Miller Lite! Vaguely citric, but intensely malty. Don't think there's a single hop in it. AKA Henry's Ale

Pours a very pale gold with a white foamy head that is disappearing quickly leaving a bit of lace. Musky malt aroma with small hops. Pretty much the same with the flavor but a bit more muted. A nice cleansing palate.
