2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
It reminds me of the simpler times. Times when all beers were 6.2% abv. Times when beers eschewed fancy cans. Times when beers made you shudder every other sip. I’m drinking it now, and I feel like Robert Deniro in The Deerhuner. Before the war that is.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a half finger of head on a clear straw body.
Aroma is a little cotton candy and caramel.
Taste is fairly sweet, though with a good balance from lemon bitterness.
Texture is softer.
It favors a little sweet, but still nice.

Can - average size foamy head, clear medium straw color, pretty sweet malt and corn aroma and flavor, fair hop balance, mildly flat finish, ok overall I guess

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz can, Ann Arbor, MI, USA via Trader Joes. Pale gold. No head. Visible carbonation. Bready aroma. Some faint citrus. Sweet, balanced with honey and light white pepper. Medium finish. Given the price and aim of the beer I’d say it’s great.

Can from Trader Joe’s in Campbell, CA. Aroma is malts, honey, artificial caramels? This is some roof stoof-age and goes fittingly with all things "Pruneyard".

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
This is your basic bad beer. Basically. No real taste here, I buy it usually because of how cheap it is, $4 a 6-pack. A pale straw color, no head, medium carbonation. No real sweetness to it, because no real taste to it. Very bland. Corn, hay, grass, ground, mulch, rot, nothing to taste.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Trader Joe’s getting into the malt liquor business I see. Very sweet, pretty strong alcohol, no balance. Kinda like a malt likka with a bit of that harsh alcohol taste, but the problem here is that with this much sugar and harshness it needs to be stronger to balance that off into a plausible malt liquor. So it’s neither a good swill lager nor a good malt liquor. It’s like when you try for a joke that isn’t that funny to begin with, and then you land it so poorly people get mad at you.

Another crappy beer by Minhas. I don’t trust Minhas Craft Brewery with any of their beers.

Surprisingly not bad. Malty; sweet but not overly so; conceals a decent alcohol kick for a PL. Well-made despite being cheap, in short

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Old rating. Yup, macro lager from Trader Joes…exactly what you expect. Something like 50 cents a beer. Corny, stale, some weird off funk. Tasted it with pils…almost exactly the same.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz can from Doug
Pours clear dark golden, small white head that dissipates to nothing, no lacing. Aroma is sweet malts, straw and honey. Taste is sour, banana, corn
Tastes like a malt liquor without the alcohol. Not terrible, but not very good.
