UPDATED: MAR 22, 2004 Another decent, but not great beer. The color and aroma are pleasant the taste is decent for a while but the aftertaste as many have mentioned is awful. The kick i was looking for just wasnt there.

the corvette of beers. mediocre at best, but consistant and the best you can get for the price. unfortunately, for me it doesn’t taste good enough to enjoy drinking and isn’t cheap enough to drink 15 and get happy.

This is ok -- a little heavy for most folks, and the aftertaste is something awful.

Not a fan of this beer. Very middle of the road with slight flavors of hop and malt ... leans towards a vegetal flavor profile which to me is not very appealing. Cheap price for a cheap beer.

smooth lager, similar to many leinenkugel products, but not very special. good beer to just drink beer and not care much for taste

An early favorite of mine 20 (or more) years ago. I still like the floral aroma of the cascade hops to this day. Rather a mild easy drinking summer brew. Balanced flavor but a watery mouthfeel. It’s one of the best domestic macro’s out there.

I think the little man with wire-rimmed glasses typing away at this on-the-label description was a bit confused. I guess one’s perception of an ’ordinary beer’ is relative; however, this is the quintessential ordinary beer by my standards. Sits right in the middle of the beer spectrum. Ordinary appearance, ordinary malt/hop balance, you barely notice it on your palate. I’d compare Weinhards’ beers to Top Ramen: not great, not gross, just the best cheap stuff available. Ordinary.

Color is a lovely clear gold; head is creamy white and holds up quite well. Aroma smells pleasantly of hops, with a tangy overtone present as well. One tastes malt immediately, then a light hoppiness. Finish is clean, but the immediate flavor burst quickly tapers into oblivion. The balance and body of this beer is definitely thinner and less well-rounded since Miller purchased the old Portland landmark brewery and razed it, now producing the Henry’s brands in Tumwater. It is still OK, but the present version lacks the assertiveness of its previous Oregon incarnation.
