COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American Pale Lager, Henry Weinhard’s Private Reserve blends Henry’s German heritage with the natural ingredients of the Pacific Northwest. If you want to impress your friends, you can say it’s brewed with 100% Cascade hops specially grown in Oregon. But all you really need to know is that it’s crisp, clean and one helluva beer.

pours a clear golden color with a small white head. the aroma is rather weak but you pick pick up some sweetness and biscuit. the taste is very good, you pick up some sweet malt up front but there is a little bit of a hop kick at the end to balance it out. this beer is definitely worth a try!

ellolovey (468) - Georgia, USA - OCT 25, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear honey color with a thin foamy white head. Aroma of cereal, grain, and sweet malts. Tastes like wet dog smells. Cereal, skunk, a bit metallic, and sour. This is horrible. Awful lingering taste in the finish.

For a normally bland style, this is very flavorful. Actually Little hop flavor and aroma. Not a thick malt presence. Light hoppiness is the only real flavor along with light hints of adjuncts. Very pleasing to taste something different in the pale lager category.

rosenbergh (7239) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2013
12 fl oz bottle. A10310940. Sep0213. (Friar Tuck) Springfield, IL.
Clear pale golden colour with a tiny white head. The aroma is apple juice, mild sweetness, malt and... not much more really. The flavour is also quite mild. Some malt, mild dryness and some weak bitterness. Very drinkable but boring. Soft carbonation.

Pours straw yellow with light head which soon dissipates. Doesn?t have much flavor. Tastes like a cheap lager. Henry Weinhard always disappoints. Down the drain it went!

Cakes (376) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 3, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Poured clear, straw golden with a short, stark white head. The aroma of toasted grains.. pale malt . Tastes of lemon zest and grassy bitterness around.. with a crisp finish. Light-bodied and a bit old school.

Very light gold pour, little head, decent lacing. aroma is faint...grass, wheat and corn. Taste is bland. Watery, light. Really nothing there. Better than mass produced but not recommended.

Appearance: very clear light gold color, pours with a small head that quickly fades to nothing Aroma: wheat, grain, light malt, Taste: light malt, has some grain to it, corn, hint of hops on the finish, Palate: average c02, slight hop and industrial aftertaste Overall: this has something that reminds me of industrial lager, although it is better than that it's still not good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
