Headbanger (3850) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 22, 2009
12oz bottle 4/5/09-Pours a slight hazy golden with a small ring for a head. Aroma of sweetness and honey. Flavor the same with some grains thrown in. This light bodied brew was pretty boring with nothing to write home about.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2008 Bottle. Pours hazy gold ith a with frothy head. Smells light. Crisp and refreshing, but light and mildly thin. Tastes about the same. Grassy and crisp. but light and refreshing, not too bad.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6737) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2008
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured bright golden color with a large yellow-white head that fades fairly quickly but produces decent lacing. The aroma was sweet, sour, tangy and corny industrial lager. The flavor is sweet, tangy and lemony. There is a light yeasty and peppery undertone and a long tart finish. Surprisingly tasty.

Onslow (1392) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - SEP 26, 2008
From a bottle. Light gold in color, pours with a white head that quickly disappated. Aroma is grain, faint but nothing unpleasant. Taste is light, crisp, nice combination of malt and hops, but light. Not outstanding but enjoyable on a hot afternoon.

Bottle. Light golden, clear. Little to no aroma. Pretty good. Slightly hoppy. Got this sightly after sell by date for $9.99 a case so definitely no complaints.

i detect a sweetness to the aroma, however there is an inherent slight bitterness with a sweet/vague malty aftertaste, not going down extremely fast, could be the rain outside

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - SEP 1, 2008
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 11.5oz. or 340ml. bottle into a pint glass. Appearance: It has a light golden cooler with a thin, white colored head that fades quickly. Little to no lacing is left on the glass. It also, has very good clarity with visible carbonation. Smell: The aroma has a light leafy/floral hop presence with a light skunky odor as well. Taste/Mouth feel: Its flavor has a funky herbal or leafy hop taste with a slightly grainy and biscuity malt taste. The finish has an over cooked hop bitterness that slowly fades off the tongue. Its body and texture are light and thin with an active level of carbonation. Notes: Overall I was not impressed by this beer.

Pours golden with small white head. Flavor is light and crisp and overall pretty decent. More flavor than Labatt Blue for sure.

cheap (5309) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2008
Decent taste and aroma. A little hop bittterness in there but mostly well mannered and fresh. Enjoyable good crisp feel. Finish is acceptable for the most part. Good session brew and it goes down fairly easy. Overall, enjoyable and refreshing.
