2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a light golden with a 1.5 inch white head. The nose is light and sweet. Light body, some floral and bitter hop notes, lingers well. Some residual sweetness and notes of mixed grain (more towards corn flakes than grape nuts). Lace does form. This is a light, pleasant, if not overly impressive beer. Easy to drink. Thirst quencher! It is not moreish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
In the bottle from a quickie mart in Mackinaw City. This brew pours amber with a thick yellow-beige head. Very malty aroma. Flavor has good notes of caramel and roastedness to the finish. Nice body, not a thin beer. I think this is under rated.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, has a very clear medium to deep gold pour with a hint of amber and brown colors, has a short lived white head that hangs around as a ring and cover, obviously, this has more color than the typical macro beer, leaves little lacing on the sides of the glass, light malt aromas of bread with faint hops, grain and sweetness, some faint peas aroma in the background, flavor of malt and bread with a very present hop bitterness, there is a touch of honey sweetness but this sweetness is minute on the palate, also, a touch of off flavor in this beer, mouth feel is good, this beer could have been a great beer but the nose and flavor have some off-ness, which is unfortunate, I would have given this drink a better grade if it was not for the off fragrance and taste.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a 12 bottle obtained in a trade with Erik of indiana, this pouerd a clear an light honey yellow with a small white head and virtually no lacing. Nose of sweatsocks and rotten apples. Watery and fizzy mouthfeel. Flavor is malty with a touch of fruit. Finish dry and bland. This is simply a very ordinary beer.

12oz plastic bottle-A clear golden body with a decent head and an aroma of nothing. Taste of a typical Helles with nothing to write home about. I’ve had worse.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Not sure where I had this.
Pours a weak tea brown with sour vegetables and flat sugar in the nose. Flavor is a mixture of corn malt and stale flowers. Watery mouthfeel. No mac attack here.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a honey yellow with a filmy white head despite the vigorous pour. Low key aroma of grains and malt. Taste is mostly inoffensive malt and light hop spiciness. Sour finish with a not entirely pleasant aftertaste. A poor attempt at a mass appeal beer by a brewer who can do much better.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap @ Coles in buffalo NY. Pours a medium golden color. Aroma has some malty sweetness but rather non descript. Flavor is lacking: some malts sweeter & pilsner. Nothing special

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Goodbar Beer Club. Rich gold, thin white head. Nose is herbal hops, minty/spicy notes, light to medium toffee malts. Flavor is rich malt, herbal & spicy hops, huge malt finish - almost meaty. On the verge of being cloying.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours honey yellow with a white head. Very little aroma, maybe a light touch of grain, but not much. Smooth, lightly malted, almost a hint of skunk (even though it probably never say much light in its life), and a touch of soap and hops.Nothing outstanding, yet nothing horrible, either.
