FROTHINGSLOSH (6738) - 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.

Straw color with a moderate yellowish off-white head. Grits and light greens scents. The more I sniff the worse it seems to get, so I stopped prior to this getting a 1. LIght herbal honey start. Some herbal and slightly minty hops in the middles. Cloying, funky sweetness in the finish that like the scent drags this one down. Not refreshing. Reminds me of a bleached blond that has spent way too much time in the sun.

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.

I know Canada sucks, but come on. This tastes like corn water mixed with aluminium. Seriously. And this is supposed to be a special import?

Headbanger (3851) - 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.

Bulk_Carrier (3746) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pilsener. The appearance was a light yellow color with a bubbly white head. There wasn’t any lacing. The smell left a lot to be desired. Lemon, maybe with some sweet corn but wasn’t combined right. The taste was tart and sweet through previously mentioned flavors. On the palate, this one sat exceptionally light. Sesionable? Uh...maybe... Overall, not exactly a beer that I liked and it was probably at the higher end of the lower part of the bad pale lagers.

Golden in color with a corn aroma. Some sweetness and alittle more body than the ’Blue’. Crisp.
