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.

Interesting taste. Not bad, just interesting. In fact, I kind of liked this beer and the taste leaves you wanting more.

I whole heartedly disagree. This is barely distinguishable in quality from a Miller or Lone Star. Mine may have been punished by light (not heat.)

Shadallion (534) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 1, 2001
Much, much, much better than you would think. Often cheaper than BudMillerCoors, if you are strapped for cash, this is a cheap lager which actually has a discernable hop and malt presence.

Good flavored beer to have from time to time.

Eh...not bad for cheap stuff. If you want a ’good’ beer...look elsewhere. If you just want a beer. Go ahead and try this stuff.

For a mainstream lager it’s not that bad, really. In fact, the general (former) quality of this beer I think laid the groundwork for the palates of Portland to embrace quality beer in the way that they do.
