1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Received 12-oz bottle from distributors sample pack. Pours a clear golden blonde brew with a fast dissolving white head that dissipates nearly clean. Aroma of golden grain malt, a touch of creamed corn, grassy hops, and a touch of hay. Taste is light bodied, plenty of carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, grassy hops and some dried nuts. Finish is metallic, watery with a grassy hop aftertaste that quickly disappears. A brewmasters dream? Oh well, some people fantasies is another persons nightmare.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Golden liquid with a dissipating light cream color. Grains, malt vinegar and grape juice aromas. Grain flavors quickly disappear with the emergence of sour and acidic hops. Some malt liquor flavors and varnish also come to mind. If this was not as bitter as it is this would really be a sickening malt soup. Bit of nuttiness in the linger. Not crisp not clean bleack!

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very carbonated Lasting meringue head on gold Light aroma is just a touch off with notes of grass and sweetness Has a noticeable level of hops and a rough unfinished character Just does not seem to come together Sort of a cheap bottle of malt liquor and pilsener mixed Thats it Malt Pilsener Malt liquor without the ABV safe for kids Even with small alcohol finish it is still better than the last 2 beers I had out of the Minhas Craft pack

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2008 12oz bottle. Hyper filtered golden color. Horribly off aroma, seriously bad. I detect something sorghum-like adjuncticity. This beer would be the pride of Bulgaria, but a quality Pils it is not. If this was a 2.00 40oz I’d give it props. Some Cream-Ale qualities certainly, which almost make up for the disgusting aroma, but not quite. Not worth seeking out.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pour is slightly darker than any macro with head that dies before it hits the glass. Almost no nose and a soury flavor with a blunt after taste that makes you wishing you hadn’t. This sucks big time and is not worth the money. PASS!!!!!!
