12 oz bottle into lager glass. Pours a deep bright gold hue with a thick pillowy head that sticks around for a long time and leaves some nice lace. Beautiful beer from the folks at Henry’s (is it really Full Sail?). Aroma is not so spectacular. I smell creamed corn, chalk, grain, Fruit Loops, cinnamon. On second thought, the aroma isn’t all that bad; lots of stuff reveals itself as it warms. Taste is sweet and sour. Highly carbonated with a creamy mouthfeel; a tad watery. I thought this was going to be a piece of crap, but it’s not too bad at all. No masterpiece, but it’s a very drinkable and attractive brew.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - NOV 23, 2009
Bottle: Pours a clear gold color with a white head. The nose is husky with a touch of wheat and citrus. Vague hops and a tinge of metal. The flavor is husky and dry, no body to speak of and a barely audible hop note in the tail. Metallic and husky in the tail. No balance, no body. Not very good.

BuckeyeBoy (2878) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 9, 2009
Bottle picked this bad boy up at Fredmeyer’s months ago in the 25% off cart. Pours out a light gold topped with a creamy white head. Aroma of grain, malts and ligth citrus. Taste grain, light malt and a little bitterness on the end. A good Sumer beer to bad it is winter.

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JUL 19, 2009
Bottle. Poured pale yellow with thick white head. Much lacing. Faint sweet malt aroma. Light sweet flavour, but not cloying. Slim hop finish. This is best on a hot day.

presario (4709) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 16, 2009
$9 for 12 bottles! Hard to argue there. Yellow with thin head and some lacing. Light soft pepper aroma. Basic beer with good palate/body and light peppery edge. Pretty good beer for the money.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUN 24, 2009
12 oz bottle consumed at the house of some of my best friends back home last night. Hey, when in Rome... this is a slightly darker yellow than I expected, with a thin white head. Aroma was biscuity and with a light lemon-lime note. Flavor a little yeasty with some fruit and some biscuit malt. Not terrible for what it was, and especially for free!
