1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle and served in standard pint glass: DAMN IT, I was expecting a Saison or at least a Biere de Garde and not a flaccid blond ale. Well it is golden and clean with some head but little lace. The aroma has notes of noticeable Diacetyl and corn, some walnut and dusty yeast ester (must be a house character, arrgh). The taste is well, very minimal and what is there is simply not that good. Butterscotch and corn, yippie! The is a note of hop bitterness but I feel bad for any hop pellets used in this beer, they deserved a better life. Well, the mouth feel is a tad more refreshing than the pils but still not that clean however. Blah, taking one for the team.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Aroma of apricots and prunes. Hazy yellow color. Fruity Malty Flavor and good Carbonation. And it comes in 8 packs. Not bad.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
12oz bottle. Golden yellow color, white foamy head. Citrus aroma combined with a bit of earth, some corn. Putrid flavor. Tastes like tea made of tortilla chips. Where’s the salsa, or should I eat some dried tomato chips to go with this liquid corn. dumped down the drain, gross.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Not a bad beer...simple, sweet tasting...a bit of citrus hiding behind a powdery feel up front. A well-priced beer with some nice complexity to it! One of many beer I find tastes better from the bottle than a glass.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy goldenrod, with slight white head. Aroma is mostly butterscotch, with some grass and yeast as well. Flavor is more butterscotch, some sour malt, and a bit of olive. But mostly, bland. Palate is oily, a somewhat lively. Overall I wouldn’t bother with this again.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2009 Pours pale yellow, with a short-lived white head. Full aroma, corn, nuts, and sweet tea. Flavor is very mashy, a lot of cereal here, but it doesn’t work well with a lactic sourness that is also present. Medium body, only light carbonation.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Very pale with head that disappeared quickly. Odd flavor that is hard to describe but, overall not good. Use it to make beer bread.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very pale and unappealing urine yellow, not much of a head. The nose is sweet corn. The flavor has a sweet corny kind of note but with some odd tartness in the background. Like it might have been sitting around awhile in less than ideal conditions...or maybe that s the style they were shooting for...not knowing, therfore I cannot say!

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from dm9831. Thanks. It pours a clear yellow body with a short-lived white head. It smells of honey gone bad, more like candy corn. Feels like oily water spiked with chemicals on the tongue. The flavor is an off honey with canned corn and an odd sourness. I have no idea what the brewer was going for here, but I hope this was not the intended goal.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
S7L4TF42O9 LAZY MUTT Mans best friend. Sweet aroma, almost charming honey olfactory. Looks nice, pours pale clear yellow then it clouds up from gunk on the bottom of the bottle. Swirling visual surprise. Very little carbonation on the initial swig. Not real bitter but certainly has a peculiar flavor. Comes across like many cheaper pale lagers. Has it’s own unique flavor character. Haylike at times but not exceptionally prominent. Finish is acceptable tho blandly interesting and intriguing. Thought it was a saison from the label but tastes more like a unique processed pale lager
