2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled from bottle. Pours a faintly hazy yellow-gold with a thin white head. Aroma is about as pleasant as a dirty hooker: musty, sour, floral and spicy. Flavor is nicely bitter and clean with a small flavor hop addition (spice/grapefruit). Medium-bodied, moderately carbonated and easy to drink. Itís OK, but less than what I was expecting from this brewer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2005 Pours with a frothy pale cream colored head that sits atop a lightly hazy gold colored beer. The aroma is light and hoppily spicy with notes of grass, herbal and a light sweet grain note. The taste has a certainl fullness to it that is not as thin as I was expecting. This beer also has a nice sharp bited in the finish. Overall this is fairly clean, but it has perhaps a hint of DMS and diacetyl, though it is not too noticeable and adds to the flavor of this beer. This definitely has a sweet grain character to it, and I like the fullness in the palate.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had this beer out of a 12oz. bottle. Flavor was light, like a typical lager style beer, but this beer has a clean crispnss to it that most lagers lack, maybe the hawaiian waters?. Had it on my second to last night in the Hawaiian Islands.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pourd with a fluffywhite head and lively carbonation. Decent lacing. Slight but not overpowering sweet foretaste. Some corny aroma. But itís a Decent lager and better than BMC wih a taste reminding me of MGD but a tad better. Seemed to have some alcohol kick in the finish. Just an average lager, but wotth a try anyway.

1.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Had this beer on draught at Billy McHales brewpub in Lynnwood, WA. This beer pours a perfectly clear golden color with very little soapy white head and no lacing whatsoever to speak of. The aroma was a mixture of malts and grains with a hint of wet grass. The body however is light with an obtrusive cloying cardboardiness and lemon corn aftertaste. Mid-sip Iím greeted with malts and spices followed by grain, wet grass, cardboard, shoe leather and other intolerable items I do not wish to find in my beer. Little to no carbonation.....very....very.....bad!

Corn is pretty heavy in all elements of this beer. Aroma, flavor, palate. Itís all corn. Yellow color, small head, thin mouthfeel. Nothing to write home about.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a pale yellow color with no head to speak of. Not a whole lot of aroma. Smell is slightly sweet with a hint of grain. Flavor up front is sort of sweet and malty. A slight grain presence with a touch of hops. Grainy bitter finish. Drinkable, yet unimpressive.
