2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Iíve had this more than enough times when I lived in Michigan and I actually donít see it around here. No worries, hereís my notes.
Iíve had this in a pint glass and a pilsener a way many of times.
The appearance was a nice golden light orange to almost yellow color with a soft one finger white foamy head that dies at a nice pace leaving an adequate stringy light somewhat clingy lacing.
The smell was somewhat malty and left a lot of hoppy bitterness to be desired. Hmmm...ok, well, I do see its an American Pale Lager, so I wonít be too harsh here on it.
The taste was somewhat malty and really didnít have much else going on.
The palate was about a light to medium and didnít really have anything else telling me this is anything stellar.
Overall, this is just another American Pale Lager, nothing bad, but still nothing extraordinary. Iíve had it with food before (a fair amount of pizza) over the years and always thought it was good.

From bottle. Nice change of pace beer but not one that would be stocked routinely in the fridge.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
For beers of this caliber (I use this term loosely), this is one of my favorites. Maybe itís because each sip takes me back to my Wisconsin College days, or warm summer nights on the lakefront @ Summerfest. Regardless, it blows any Miller or Bud product out of the water. Nice hop aroma, clean and crisp. Just how cheap beer is supposed to be. Be warned about overdoing it with Leinies Orginal. It has the ability to leave you in rough condition the next morning.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a clear golden with a decent head. Aroma of corn and grains. Taste of the same with a bit of bitterness. This light bodied brew is pretty well balanced and goes down easy.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Picked up at a Krogers. Pours a clear light golden yellow with a medium sized fizzy white head. The aroma and flavor have grainy corn, grass, pale malts, some metallic notes and a light skunky character. Not even sure this is worth the tick.

7/21/12. Can poured into a pint glass. Appealing, light color. Smooth and light tasting. A very drinkable session beer. Crisp flavor. I would drink again and recommend to a certain type of beer drinker.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Beer the way your dad use to know it (assuming your dad was a middle-class, white guy from a Rustbelt town who watched football/baseball after cutting grass/raking leaves/shovelling snow every Sunday). Pale gold, malt, hops, lager flavor (best deScription I can give). A step up from my go to cheap beers (Bud, PBR, Canadian). I use to drink a lot of this stuff.

Clear gold, with a fluffy white head.
