3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This was your microbrew ale equivalent of a Corona style lager, American pilsner, whatever you want to call it. Lacing was very impressive for the boring style, the appearance golden. Light touch of hops to balance out the malts, somewhat of a corn flavor. Mouthfeel was obviously light. Good beer for those that don’t want anything fancy.

Very good for a pale lager.It has the characteristics of a good German Pilsner. Light in all aspects but very refreshing and easy drinking.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This was a little different. Pale yellow, almost looked the color of pear juice. Small fast fading head. Huge malt flavors which is the change up here. Most pale lagers have some sort of adjuncty kinda flavor and maybe a mild hop for crispness, but this had a pretty pronounced malt profile from fore to aftertatse. It was still thin and watery, but it was like a Light Bass Ale more than it was like a Bud Light. Different.

On tap at the brewpub in Pensacola: poured a light yellow with adequate white head. Lightly floral hop aroma. Flavor is pretty full for a "light" beer. Lightly sour with hints of lemon. I enjoyed it.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Listed as Old Fashioned Ale. Pale yellow with some white head. Grainy malt nose with some earthy hops. Again very grainy with a punch of bitterness. Light body with sprite carbonation, and a dry finish. Easy to drink but very little character.

Take one of your run-of-the-mill macro lagers, add a hint of spice, sprinkle and a dash of floral hops, and serve cold.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampler at the Destin Pub. Per beer sample sheet "McGuires Old Fashioned Ale". Light earthy hop notes and some grain in aroma. Clear light straw/golden. Earthy hop notes with some pilsner malt qualities in flavor. Light body with dry crisp finish. Not sure whether a cream ale or a lager but has some qualities of both.
