1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a pale yellow color with maybe a hint of orange with a small white quickly disappearing head. It has a little bit of a skunky aroma. This is a very unusual beer. I taste some hop bitterness, some tomato, some buttered toast, some grass and some flowers. Itís hard to believe it tastes like it does. Iím not sure what to make of this one.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Deep yellow colour, minimal head. The strangest odour of canned spaghetti and tomato sauce. Immediately an off-note in the mouth...something musky. Mid-palate opens up some calm hops, brown rice, and then more musk. Finish is smoggy and un-settled in the throat. Starchy complex throughtout. Something is not right with this one.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Decent thin head sitting on top. Fades away eventually. Not really a straw-yellow color; more of a yellow with some orange/copper colors mixed in. Decent looking.Grassy aroma. Not extremely pungent. An almost pilsner-like aroma coming through. Not an amazing palate, but I wasnít expecting much considering the pale lager aspect. The flavor is grass with some pilsner flavor(s) coming through. Picked up at Kroger, and even though this is more expensive than other pale lagers, it does offer a more pleasurable experience.

Pours a pale yellow with a nice sized white head. Aroma has a skunky vegetable smell. Some bready malt, spice and apple. Tastes skunky as well with a boiled vegetable mid to finishing palate. Some bread and spice is there as well. Highly carbonated, but drinkable.
