2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Decent to say the least. A pale yellow color with a white head that had good retention and some lacing. Aroma had some nice toasted malts, a mild cereal note and a touch of corn. Flavor was balanced mostly toasted malts. The corn note did not affect the beer in any way for it was on the mild side. No real hop character but the malts seemed delicate enough to need any. Would make for a nice session beer. Carbonation was on the low side which i found to be a benefit.

General rating is 3.9. It is alright, easy to drink. The Cascade hops are not pronounced well, especially after production moved from Hood River, Oregon to Irwindale, CA in late 90’s. Light, pretty crisp. Clear, moderately carbonated. 3.9 BD

"this is a miller product. that explains a lot, being that it’s usually found in the micro section. better than all of the products with miller on the label, but not all that good."

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Transfer from BA review on 11-12-13-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a straw color with a one finger fizzy white head. The head fades very rapidly, leaving only a thin level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass and a bit of foam on the surface of the brew.
Smell – The aroma is mainly of a grainy nature mixed with some smells of a caramel and corn sweetness. Along with these smalls are some lighter notes of a grassy and herbal nature as well as just a hint of a lemon citrus smell.
Taste –The taste begins with a rather bready flavor mixed with some lighter caramel and corn tastes. The taste upfront is rather smooth and refreshing remaining that way much throughout the taste. A bit of a grainy and grassy flavor comes to the tongue more toward the middle to the end of the taste, but yet still melds well with the other flavors, maintaining a rather smooth taste. In the end, a light level of an earthy and herbal flavor come to the tongue, along with a slight increase in the sweet flavors of corn and caramel, to leave a somewhat sweeter, but rather pleasant and still crisp flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on thinner side with a carbonation level that is rather average. Both are good for the lighter tastes and somewhat sweeter flavors of the brew making this a rather easy drinking beer.
Overall – A decent brew at a reasonable price. Quite easy drinking and flavorful in the sweeter department with a rather easy drinking taste making for a decent session/ social drinking brew.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet, lightly toasty malt aroma. A hint of citrus, and a little dusty. Light caramel/sweet malt aroma, with bread crust/biscuit. Citrus, subtle sulfur/vegetable lager yeast. Sweeter in the finish.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pilsener glass.
The appearance was a yellow color with a half finger white foamy head that dissipated within about twenty seconds. There was barely any lacing and what there was of it just slid right on into the beer.
The smell had a weird burnt bready / burnt caramel notes to it.
The taste was basically the same.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with not much sessionability about it as I’m getting a weird cardboard - ness rolling over my tongue.
Overall, I can’t say I’d try this again.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear yellow pour with white head. Aroma is grainy. Taste follows nose. Good mowing the lawn beet. Not good for much else.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 Bottle.
A- Cereal, citrus, wheat.
A- Golden color, clear liquid, minimal head.
T- Cereal, watery, malty, citrus, wheat, slightly sweet.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, crisp finish.
O- Just like a glorified Bud Light. A decent beer with a little bit of flavor but still lacking a lot of qualities. Drinkable nonetheless.

On the deck in Kaneohe Oahu. Thanks to the last guest for leaving us leftover brews. What a view but not much of a beer.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clear light orange pour with a quickly dissipating head. Mostly a thinner palate, somewhat bland lager, but it has a little character that sets it above BMC. Not bad for what it is.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2015 For the style, this isn’t half bad. Basically, this ends up being a more expensive version of the brand name lagers you see everywhere. It does this while pretending to be a craft beer. I get that. The Cascade hops give this beer a spicy, fresh bite, though. So yes, it’s a lot like all the other draft lagers. This one just has a bit more going for it.
