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.

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).

Tried this the other day. Beter than most others of this style. One can actually detect some hops.

i started out thinking "ok, it’s a light lager, but i can smell it, so it’s not going to be too boring." I was wrong. bit of a nose, that promises more than taste delivers. absolutely no aftertaste, or body. hint of carbonation, no head. I had to spill the last 1/3 of the glass.

slight toast nose, piss color, clean, you get a sense of some of the hops, not a good beer by anystance.

I am going to be a little biased in my rating of this beer, as it was my first non-macro beer. Its not great, but it is a beer my Bud loving fishing buddy will drink, so I don’t have to drink Bud. Light gold color, medium head. A light bodied lager style beer. Malts are slightly sweet and there is some hop bite. Nice smooth taste. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

An early ’micro?’ It could be way worse. I can’t say that I drink it often, but if I was somewhere and it was this or ’pure macros,’ I’d sure be happy to see it.
