A notch above malt liquor, has that old timey, cheap, street walking taste to it that Ballantine has. Not offensive, just headache wrenching. Skunky, green bottle nose, pillowy white head sitting on tip of a light golden pour. Sweet, alcohol taste with some overripe fruit notes coming though. Good companion for a lonely night if you do not need to wake up early the next morning. Not gut wrencing by any means, just slightly similar to smoking a Swisher Sweet - you get what you pay for.

Sledutah (6760) - Utah, USA - JAN 9, 2012
12oz bottle from the state store
Appearance: Pours crystal clear light golden with a medium sized white head that dissipate fairly quickly leaving some spotty lacing, good carbonation
Aroma: Skunky, sweet caramel malts and honey
Taste: Skunky, grainy, corn and bitterness
Why a green bottle? Tastes like a juiced up Heineken, not for me!

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 24, 2005
Bottle: Light straw color, very clear, moderate white fizzy head that settles to a thin film, lively carbonation, spotty lacing.   Looks more like a pilsner than a pale.   Somewhat corny aroma, adjuncts similar to BMC product.   Not bad, but certainly not entertaining.   Slightly grassy flavor, dull sweetness, without any hop bite.   Yeah, more like a pilsner for sure.   Body and mouthfeel are fairly decent however.   Fairly clean finish, but a little too similar to a BMC product to be all that pleasing.

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

Was extremely skunked. More so than Heineken. That was the aroma. Flavor was skunk, with light hops, and a touch of bready malt. Light and thin. I bet it would taste better were it not extremely skunked. Oh well.

Skyview (5464) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 13, 2007
On tap at Pete’s Lair Tavern in Milwaukie, Oregon. Pours a clear light golden blonde brew with a fast dissolving off-white head. No lacing except for a thin white ring around glass top. Aroma of light multi-grain malt, some flowery hops and a touch of lemon zest. Taste is light bodied, well carbonated, a little gritty with flavors of light malt, and just barely any hop bitterness. Finish is a little gritty and hardy any aftertaste.

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

355ml bottle poured a pale amber gold color with a small white head that left very little lacing on the glass. Aroma was cereal grains and citrusy notes. Taste was a light malty sweetness with a decent hoppy bitter finish. Certainly didn’t taste like Cascade hops, as I have had many Cascade hopped beers since and all were much better than this one. Just tasted like another macro swill pale lager to me.

Doesn’t look or smell too good. I was hoping it would be blue in color - that would have made for a much more interesting drink. Quite lagerish for an ale, with hefe overtones. Not too bad, but I am probably too drunk to be rating beers right now.

Medium gold color, small head. A medium bodied ale. Advertised as a “traditional Irish” ale. Malty and slightly hoppy. Smooth taste, perhaps a bit too carbonated? Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
