GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 19, 2009
12oz bottle courtesy of OldStyleCubfan poured into a pint glass. Pours a clear golden yellow with a fluffy white head that dissipates very quickly and leaves no lacing. The aroma is pretty unimpressive with mostly toasted grains and light malts. There is maybe a hint of grassy hops in the nose, but not much. The taste is slightly better with a much more noticeable grassy hop presence up front with the same light bready malt base as in the aroma. The finish is dry and slightly bitter. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with decent carbonation though it could use a little more body overall. This is a fairly drinkable pale but really basic overall with minimal hop presence. Not bad but nothing too complex or flavorful.

Shag (2585) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAR 14, 2009
This beer pours a pale golden color with a moderate white head. The aroma contains lemons, grassy notes and a light herbal scent. The flavor is rather tame with some bitterness presence. I taste lemons, bready notes, and really not much else. Not much malt backbone to this one. The finish is slightly dry. Overall Highland makes much better but this is an ok quaffing beer.
