2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
No prominent scent. There’s very minimal hops and bread like notes. The flavor is good. There is malts that were caramelized that gives a slight character to the flavor. The hops show up but are minimal in taste. There is a slight bitterness but doesn’t harm the palate. Overall nothing here stands out to make this drink memorable. Yet its a nice brew to chill with.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I had to sample this beer just from the name alone! This was a decently drinkable lager. It’s kinda on par with Boston Lager, but lacks a little in the flavor and hops departments. The beer poured a light amber color with very little head. There wasn’t much lacing around the glass, either. The nose was mostly sweet maltiness, but had a nice hint of spicy hops thrown in for good measure. The body was fairly consistent with the style; not too light, not too heavy. The flavors were very smooth and fairly delicious, with notes of sweet malt, hops and a little pine. The hops showed their best stuff toward the back of the of the flavors and in the aftertaste. Not a bad beer to drink one after another while hustling some pool tables.

Bottle. Clear light amber with a small, dense off white head. Aroma of bread dough and light caramel with some herbal hops. Flavor of mild caramel malt, medium hop bitterness and a clean yeast profile. Light body with average carbonation. Right on style, very clean lager with some light caramel and bitterness.

My first impression was this lager tastes like the aluminum can. The flavor has some mild hops, the color is golden with a white small head, nothing special. I don’t plan to try this again. Not impressed.

Got a 4pk of this in pint cans as a gift. I do like the darker lager coloring. Not a huge fan of the empty mouthfeel (similar to ab inbev stuff). Taste was okay. Overall, not one of my favored beers in the lager style, but possibly could serve as an excellent transition beer for people like my father, who only drink bud and coors.

This was not at all what the description or rating says. Pretty bland with no real redeeming qualities. Just swill with some good marketing. Blah

Canette 473ml. De couleur ambrée et claire. Nez de grains de malt sucrés, moyen de caramel aux petites notes terreuses, léger de houblon herbeux avec de faibles notes fruitées (agrumes). Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement crémeuse et aux petites notes huileuses. Petites notes fruitées (agrumes) et accompagné de grains de malt sucrés lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de caramel aux faibles notes terreuses ainsi que des petites notes de biscuits au beurre et des traces de sucre blanc puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon herbeux. Post-goût moyen-court, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours amber colour with way too much head. Aroma is citus, with bit of a stale smell (think spilled dry beer). Carbonation is very evident on the pallet. Weak hops bitterness, slightly tanic. A little bit of initial sweetness. Not a complex flavour. Overall, this is an okay beer, but is intended as a next step for those drinking a Molson-Coors products.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
New selection at my local beer store, from a bottle. Fairly smooth lager aroma bordering on old lager. Look is fairly pale lager. More personality compared to a pale lager. Has some fruitiness inthe background. A little slag on the palate and a good amount of co2. Goes down fairly easy but there is a little bit of mild bitterness building on the tongue during the session. Yes, personality continues to build as you drink. Finishes with a mild medicinal feel. Would like to try this on tap. I have tasted more mannered viennas.

Buckets, Jenkintown 12oz ($4.25): Pours an amber color with a small head. Aroma is faint caramel malt. Taste is faint anything. This was not any worse or better than the Yuengling I drank right before it.
