2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Personal Milestone: Pale Lager rating #300 (out of 3515)!!!!! Whooptie-Doo!!!!!< />Unless, of course, Cave Creek Chili Beer and Tequiza are finally moved to Spice/Herb/Vegetable where they properly belong, inwhich case I get the excitement of doing #300 again...
Anywhat - This poured a bubbling pale yellow body with a slight head that rapidly diminishes into a film. It has a faint aroma of sweet apple cider, pale malt, and a bit of corn. The same with the watery flavor, although a touch of tin comes in near the finish. Not painful.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
OMG! They still make this? From 12-oz can pours a clear golden straw brew with plenty of carbonation and a thin white ring. Aroma of very light popcorn, some citrus and grassy hops and a touch of green vegetables. Taste is light bodied, metallic texture with flavors of light popcorn, grassy hops and some dry rice. Finish continues a gritty and metallic aftertaste. It’s okay for a summer lawnmower beer but I still prefer water.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Hazy light gold body with a large white head. The aroma is corn with brocolli and pancakes. The taste is light bell pepper with a little bit of corn behind it. This is not bad for the style, less grain and obvious corn than many other pale lagers.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Light straw color with a fizzy white head. Light aromas of grain and hints of herbal hops and DMS. Light sweet grainy flavors. I hate to say this, but worse than I remember.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottles of this have found their way to a cut price supermarket chain in the UK: 69 Pence (about a dollar) for 330ml worth.
I poured my bottle into a ’Back Forty Beer Co’ glass to make it feel at home (kind of) on 9th Jan 2014.
Very pale golden/straw coloured body, clean and clear, the white head left before it arrived to leave a white collar and a little wisp on the surface.
If this is their Premium beer I’m not too sure I’d like their regular brew. Although to be fair this isn’t a bad lager, it’s just a bit thin on character and flavourings. Refreshing without testing your taste buds or other senses too greatly.
The nose was semi-sweet and slightly grainy, the taste followed in that vein, being pretty sweet: where did the hops go?
Pleased it popped up in Shropshire, but I’ll not be rushing off back to the shop for any more.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml bottle. Barely clear, golden colour with small, frothy, rapidly diminishing, white head. Grainy aroma, spelt, straw, roasted barley, a sour-ish, grassy hoppy touch. Taste is slightly sweet grainy, biscuity, a touch of caramel, some malt spiciness; one-dimensional, slightly watery.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Well, I guess I can safely say there is nothing offensive about this beer. It’s got a definite corn taste going on, but it won’t kill you.

12 oz can. Clear, bubbly yellow-gold with a frothy tumescent head...Sprite-like sweetish nose with a touch of underlying grassy hops...very bland flavor, mostly sweet, no detectable hops, but clean...watery body, dull.

Bottle from Dom at Gurd’s bottle tasting evening. An out of kilter participant in the evenings tasting. Rather pleasant lager though and a nice grain feel.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Hazy yellow. Aroma is a bit yeasty and sour. Flavour is also quite tart. Possibly a bad bottle
