1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
A recent arrival in Coralville, Iowa. From a 650 ml bottle. Poured with a light gold body and a fairly long lived frothy head on top. The aroma is grainy corn with some perfume and some bell pepper. The taste has some bitter notes of metal along with some raw potatoes in the finish. There are some grassy notes that are not too bad. This has a soft and fairly full mouthfeel for the style. This is decent.

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Pours a really light yellow with a small head. This is a medium body lager with a sweet taste to it. It’s a little weak. The aroma is a really strange grassy smell. In spite of the appearance, aroma, and palette it’s actually a good (but not great) beer. Don’t judge this book by it’s cover.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
(500 ml bottle: $2.79 at BevMo in La Jolla, CA) The code "Y B L-05" is imprinted on the label, so I’m guessing this was brewed December, 2005. This is another of the Indian lagers that I grabbed off the distributor’s hand truck as he was rolling it into BevMo, so it’s as fresh a bottle as I could manage. It pours a slightly hazy, medium straw colored body, but the half-inch tall head is bubbly and short-lived, fading quickly to a filmy layer. The very lightly aromatic nose is spicy, lightly sweet and perhaps a bit grainy, but the spice is more peppery rather than an aroma I attribute to hops. I’m not getting any grassiness or anything else that might be an indication of hops. Following suit, the flavor shows peppery spice, grain, corn, and light sweetness, but generally isn’t very flavorful when sipped and proceeds to thin even more as the finish approaches. Corn sticks around the longest and perhaps there’s a hint of grassy bitterness peaking out in the finish. Body is light and fairly watery, especially in the finish and carbonation is medium. By the time I’ve consumed half the glass, the head is totally gone with not even a trace of lacing on the glass. Not a horrible beer, probably on par or slightly above your typical BMC, but half the bottle will see the drain anyway.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours very pale golden color. Grainy aroma with a touch of malt and a ever so light hint of skunk. Malty up front for about one millisecond. Grainy and bitter. Also really watery. Kind of a foul aftertaste.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This pours a pale gold body with a continuous flow of bubbles and a slender, well-retained, creamy white head. The aroma is a faint, sweet doughy malt. This is very light in the mouth and very low on flavor, a grainy, corny-sweet taste. There’s only a slight hop presence that mainly comes through as weak bitterness in the finish.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
650 ml bottle, Habersham Beverage Warehouse, Savannah, Ga. Pours a very pale golden with a thin, but persistent white head.Chemical-like aroma with some faint grassy notes. Flavor has some brief bready, biscuity highlights which differentiates this from most of this ilk. Otherwise, pretty bland and typical corny lager flavor. Mouthfeel is slighlty crisp, somewhat spritzy. Had worse.

2005 Great Arizona Beer Festival sample 8oz Grain aroma and watered down. Not much else to say. Bland beer bud is probably cheaper to buy if you want common swill.
