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

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.

Can. Pours a light fizzy golden with a thin white head. The aroma is a strong sweet grain and corn. The taste is pretty simple; some sweet corn and a bunch of malt. Some honey perhaps and bit of stale bready flavors. Not horrible, just like a macro lager, but smoother and with better ingredients.

On tap at Peteís 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.

Green bottle, so it has some skunk. Airing it out didnít help. Pale yellow with a white head. Skunky with some grainy cereal. The taste is light corn and grass. There is just a hint of hops. Very light and no where near an APA, more like a light golden, nearly a Kolsch.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

A weak version of a plae ale. But a good lawn mower beer. If it is hot outside and I ned something easy and fast to drink and it is ceap This is a great beer.

Pours a piss yellow color with a thin head. Slightly bitter aroma and taste, but more processed grain. Eh, itís not all bad... but not much good either.

Doesnít 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.
