2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market, Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear golden amber with a thin fizzy head. Poor head retention and lacing. Aroma of corn, corn and more corn with a bit of toasty malts and grass. Taste is more prominent grassy notes with more corn. Balanced a bit better this time. A little acridity creeps in the finish. Thin-medium bodied. Decent for a light lager.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle shared by argo0: Pours a pale watery golden with a thin ring of white head. Has a bland grassy sugar corn nose. Starts with a light pale malty sweetness and some bland earthy hops before a very thin finish. Not much going on here, but it is drinkable at least.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled at the DC Local tasting. Pours crystal clear yellow with a fizzy white head. Someone at the tasting remarked, "smells like rotting apples." I thought it smelled like a moldy beehive. Flavor is lightly sweet, stale grass, pears. Watery finish. Tastes a lot better than it smells.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Actually, I was surprised, that for a light beer this one ain’t too bad. Mind, touch of hops and malts. Certainly more drinkable than the typical light brews out there.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Crystal clear coloured body with a light soapy white head. Aroma of pale malt, fake sugars and a touch of cardboard - nothing really. Light-bodied; Watery, slightly malty flavour with a touch of fake sugars, some mild soap and a tiny bit of cardboard - bland as could be. Aftertaste, soap and cardboard dominate with a touch of citrus and pale malt. Overall, a pretty bad beer - even for the style this is showing nothing, and even though I’ve seen this just the one time, I wouldn’t recommend anyone buying it - even to try something new! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 15-April-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 05-June-2010.
