3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ported from BA.
A light clear orange with no head at all.
malty and dry. No real residual aromas, other than possibly some caramel. Falls a little flat here.
Dry and malty, beginning, middle, and into the aftertaste. Surprisingly robust actually. Crisp and clean.
Pretty standard carbonation, nothing out of the ordinary. Like I said, very crisp. More body than I had expected, close to the medium range.
Reasonable. It’s a decent lager in my opinion, and I’d have no trouble drinking several. Not a real taste bud kicker, but pretty pleasant nonetheless.

Bottle via trade. Pours a clear light yellow gold color with a white fizzy head. Aroma is very light and subtle with maybe a slight hint of grains. Not much. Flavor is dry malts, grains and nothing. There’s hardly anything to this.

This actually wasn’t to bad. It has some adjuct corn, but it wasn’t as bad as BMC. There was actually some toasted malt flavor in there with some grassy, grainy flavor.

Pour is a dark gold with a white head. Aroma is sweet and grainy. Flavor is some dry hay malts and nothing in the way of hops. Slightly more body and heft then a BMC and by slightly I mean very slightly.

Decent aroma but oxidized in flavor, this is decent but would be better if fresher.
