2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Just thought I’d try this again after not having it for many years. Once upon a time it was my favorite and I fear it may be on its way out, hard to find. Pours a straw color with a thick white head. It has a sweet vegetable smell. Lots of carbonation. Little flavor up front other than a bit of a metallic taste. Has a bit more bitterness than some other pale lagers and its not offensive just pretty bland.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer claims to have Munich style. Well, it has. This is a classy beer, full of aroma, malty and sweet. A good body, medium, a firm blond color and fuzzy. A fine taste, sweet and a bit bitter with a nice end.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, thanks Aaron, I suppose. Clear yellow pour with no head, but very fizzy. Aroma brings corn, grass, slight cracker, cardboard. Taste is a mix of grass, corn, rice, hints of earth, cracker and biscuit, hay notes in there, finishing grainy. It is definitely better than all of the other macro lagers, by far.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ home picked up at RJs Fort Collins. My bros thought this was the bees knees as far as macros to when I was underage. My first run at this beer in five years. Pours a clear golden appearance with a decent white head. A bit spritzy, corn, toasted grainy, sweet lemon aroma. So far this is a solid macro pale lager. A bit but crisp, solid toasted malty, lightly bitter, mild flavor. Best pale lager from a macro that I’ve had in quite a while. Definitely a draught beer for connoisseurs.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
This pale lager was a little smoother and perhaps that made it a tad better. The finish was still stale and like old cornbread though.

If it were free it would be overpriced and overhyped. Not one thing about it is enjoyable.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. 5 for 5$ at some shitty casino in Vegas. 5%. Pours a clear yellow with a weak white foam, little retention. Aroma is quite sweet, fruits and grains. Taste is fruity, barley and malts. Finish is a little sour tasting, but drinkable on a cold day.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a pale gold with a decent head of tight white bubbles. The nose is mild with notes of grain but not much else. The flavor is slightly sweet with a touch of grain and very light bitterness on the back end. Average carbonation and a clean finish. It lacks bitterness which could be a plus for malt fans. I find it to be one of the least offensive mass produced beers out there.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours a crystal clear pale gold body with a one finger fizzy white head that faded pretty quickly to a thin film. The nose is wet soggy grain and a bit of corn with minimal to no hops. The flavor is rather thin, there’s a bit of corn syrup sweetness up front, fading to a grainy finish. Not a whole lot of bitterness anywhere in here. Light bodied, watery in texture with fizzy carbonation. Not exactly good, but there are a lot worse beers in this style than this one.
