2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. The label brings back memories. This was ’the good stuff’ when I was just a pup. Pours clear gold with a thin, lace-free head. The aroma is sort of between a pale lager and a pils. but more to the pale side of the house. Light body and moderate carbonation for the style. The taste can be best described as ’sedate.’ Not much action here, just smidge of toffee. On the up side, the doesn’t seem to be any corn, butter or butterscotch notes. Crisp finish, with low bitterness.

No longer made in Oregon. Bottle says Golden CO and Milwaukee WI. They have ended their relationship with Full Sail. I don’t know what the point is in continuing this beer. Maybe they think that there is enough old folks like myself that remember this as their "I am more hip than you are" craft beer in the 1970’s. Now it is just average and superflous. Would rather drink Pabst.

Light not very interesting lager. Light grainy flavor decent fizz not a lot of hops.finished quickly with cereal. Nothing great, decent summer refresher or all day drinker.

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... ;-)

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
