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.

Yellow fizzy beer w/ medium head. Crystal clear. Very faint aroma of malt and hops. Clean flavor of malt and ever-so-slight hops. A little bland. Typical American macro-lager.

This is the kind of thing you keep in the guest refigerator or the kind of thing that people leave in yours. Nothing special to speak of here, just more of the same in your american variety.

3fourths (7799) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 21, 2003
For being an American Standard it is better than most, but still too carbonated and light for my tastes. Another one to serve to guests.

Verne (261) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - JAN 19, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2003 This may be the best beer of its type. Now that would be my lest favorite type but if this beer were made in one of the Eastern States it would be famous

Diablokev (145) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - JAN 4, 2003
Aroma is lite and sweet, the appearance is agolden yellow with a frothy head. The flovor is nothing special with a small bitter bite to it. The beer goes down smooth with maybe a bit of a hoppy aftretaste. Overall a nice beer.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 17, 2002
One of the better of this style. Slightly opaque with strong hops, but still has that american standard persona when is goes a couple degrees above freezing.

used to live in portland and loved weinhards..it was like a micro brew but cheaper. then had it again after a few years. well it’s better than miller and bud..and that can be a good thing..

Am very biased towards this one. Was my favorite beer before I turned 21 and started drinking good beer. Quality really went down when miller bought company.

Some funky flavors. But OK if you have to drink it. Not much different from the other "premium" lagers (macroswill).
