Not bad. Very smooth and an easy drink. Henry’s is lighter of most lagers. You can drink this on any occasion.

Poured clear light golden into a clean pint glass. Started with a decent 3/4 inch head that quickly dissipated to a thin lacing. Standard fizzy lager with no great flaws. Light mouthfeel. Time to go do some yard work... ;-)

12oz bottle. The pour was a crystal clear sparkling yellow with a small (less than 1 finger) white foamy head that reduced at a steady pace, down to a thin wispy film with fair spotty lacing.
The aroma was mild of a light grain malt, light floral hops and a mild cobweb yeast with notes of caramel and an adjunct (corn I believe).
The taste was lightly bitter with a very mild caramel sweetness early on, and then became a tad bitterer and a bit grainy with a crisp adjunct presence towards the finish. The flavor lasted only a short while after the swallow, with the mild crisp grainy taste fading fast from the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a ticklish carbonation.
Overall this brew was definitely nothing special and typical of an American Lager, although it was crisp and refreshing and might be good as a lawnmower brew. If you like this type of beer that is... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours yellow fizzy into the glass, with no retentive head and sparse fizz lacing. The nose is somewhat plastic-like and grainy. Corn and sweet malt flavors, with a carbonation finish, thin body and over-zesty mouthfeel. Thin, seltzery macro boring lager. Nothing of substance here.

Bottle. Nose has greenish hops, mild, with grainy overtones and a touch of butter, yay!. Clear, dull golden with a short off-white head. Taste is sweet with lots of grain and corn, light butter and faint hops but no bitterness. Malt profile here isn’t terrible, and fits the sharp/aggro medium body reasonably well. It’s not dirty, but the brewing flaws are evident and the candyish/kiddie-ish character that dominates is not desirable.

1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Northwest style lager it says, does that mean lager loaded with Cascade hops? Maybe but I wouldn’t say loaded. It has a definitely Cascade citrus nose, but also cat urine and a load of buttery malts, and a cooked vegetal DMS component. Maybe more hops could have masked the flaws in their lagering, with more buttered malts in the flavored, couple with an almost bubble-gum type ester plus DMS. Thats not to say these flaws are over-powering because the beer as a whole is fairly light and bland, a fizzy lager. Not much hops come through in the finish at all, just a touch for balance at most. Halfway through the glass the nose is a real turnoff. I found that holding my nose while drinking it brought our more of the cascade flavors and even a little resin on the finish. Golden color, fizzy but small short lasting white head.

All standard attributes: color and head. More substance than macros but nothing to separate from the crowd. Overall Decent, Easy to drink.
