3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 bottle from Premier Gourmet. Clear light pale gold, smallish fizzy diminishing white head - nice and bubbly. Smells okay - grassy with honey and a hint of lemon zest. Taste - grass and honey lemon cough drink - no alcohol. Light, syrupy mouthfeel, stingingly carbonated, finishes quick and clean. Not bad, for what it is.

2/12/12. 12oz bottle thanks to Brad! Clear copper pour with a small khaki head that’s gone fast. Plain aroma of green apples, caramel, and fusel alcohols. Slightly sweet caramel maltiness with a huge apple character. Blegh.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours a clear pale gold with a small diminishing white head. Aroma is grainy, slightly vegetal, with some sugary sweetness, artificial honey, pale malt and just a hint of hops. Very watery flavour of grain, corn and pale malt -- that’s pretty much it. Clean but very dull. Average bodied. Drinkable if nothing else better is around but it’s just an O.K. lawnmower beer and strangely enough, I even preferred the Light version.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from a case. Pours a pale body with a white head. Very thin and slick. Musky husky corn and dingy malt with a hint of moth and berry. Not so good.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Yellow with almost no head. Light malty aroma, with some grainy sweetness. The flavor has grain and a light malty sweetness. Really not that bad.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Draft at Heavens Pizza. Ugh ... lives up (or down) to all the bad stereotypes for American macro beers ... clear and pale yellow, no head, flat corny aroma and flavors. No redeeming qualities (but nothing technically wrong either). (#5198, 8/15/2013)
