2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from the Co-op in Davis, CA. Pours a lightly hazy gold with a foamy white head. Sort of a lightly sweet odor with not much hop. Near medium body with mild carbonation. It’s clean. It has a smidge of grassy bitter. It’s harmless. Damning with faint praise.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
355mL thanks to argo0. Finally- a Tibet beer! The pour is a bright straw with heavy carbonation and a fizzy, temporary head. Nose is champagne like with cheap white wine. Much better than most pale lagers. Taste is metallic, grainy, light cereal but really not much there to like or dislike besides lemon Perrier. Big carbonation distracts. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
thanks bullzeye! carefully poured from a wicker basket - mapwhoring at it’s finest... color is soft yellow with a slight haze and a billowy medium-bubbled white head. nose is surprisingly soft and floral with some dust/cement basement must and dried corn leaves and other assorted dried or toasted grains/plants. somebody said corn pudding but I can’t make that happen even with how suggestible I am. lightly crisp, lightly dry - saaz hops? didn’t know but guess it makes sense. mostly soft, some sort of rice flavor noticed at times but for the most part it’s inoffensive and easy to like as simple as it is.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle@Sandy Lane, CA, 12/08/12. Pale and misted with a fine, dissipating foam. A little pine shaving and dried apricot; thin raffia-like malts, strange oak. Dried grass aroma. Not especially adjunct-laden or refreshing. Reasonable.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle shared by argo0: Pours a clear pale golden with a stringy-lacing off-white head. Has a semi-sweet grainy malty nose with a touch of corn. Starts with a mild corn sweetness with some grassy bitterness before a drier slightly peppery finish. Very bland and not something I’d even want to drink on a hot day. At least it’s not infected.
