2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Clear light gold. Big aroma of Pilsner malt, honey, and some ginger. Very sweet sugary taste up front that fades to bland, watery corn syrup. Awful. Drain pour.

Aroma: Medium-light grainy.
Appearance: Brilliant light gold body. Small white head, low retention.
Flavour: Medium grainy, sweet. Medium-light bitterness. Dry finish, light astringency.
Mouthfeel: Light body. Medium-high carbonation. Light carbonic sting.
Overall: The astringency makes the beer difficult to drink. Otherwise clear, crisp, refreshing. The graininess is a bit too string.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle shared by Joe. At one terrible Chinese, Thai and American restaurant near Crater Lake. Man, this was better than the food and it was terrible. Pours a clear yellow color with a medium white head. A light nose of corn and honey. The flavor is sharp metallic funky grains, honey, sweet adjuncts. Light, OK. Drinkable but much worse than many other macros. Swill.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a clear bright light gold with a fairly long lasting head of foam.
Big whafts of corn, sweets, the general and non deviating nose you get for the style.
Corny, grainy, sweetness reminds me of a malt liquor. Somewhere in there, just a kiss of the hops. Sorry Schlitz for stealing that.
Usual body. Run of the mill. Boring

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
12 oz bottle, part of $9.99 mix-your-own-6 from Kroger, Delaware. Basically no head, pale urine yellow, no lacing, but +1 point for the cool bottle. Faint aroma of hay and grain. Flavor has some Sprite-like citrus, plus a little skunk. Thin and fizzy. I’ve had worse, but pretty bad.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle from Capone’s. PAle gold with white head and fizzy body. Pale malt, thiols, hopcitrus in the nose, tastes like a watery pale lager with some off notes. Terrible.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
330 ml bottle. Light golden color with a moderate Rocky white head. Aroma is light grassy, grainy malt. Flavorless and insipid. Carbonated and undesirable. Like bamboo shots mixed with seltzer water. My apologies to the bamboo shoots. What was I thinking.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
[bottle like picture]
Slightly skunky hay aroma with very little by way of hops or malt behind the skunk. Clear anemic straw under a quickly dropping white cover. Flavour is quite skunky and lagery, reminiscent of Becks with slightly more bitterness than expected. Light body, crisp, medium high carbonation.
