1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
16 oz can. The cheapest beer in Total Wine at 5.99 for a six pack of 16 oz cans, except for a special they had on Heineken Light, and I just couldn’t buy a light beer. Beer prices are showing some serious inflation. I was hoping for a small brewery brew with some character, but this turned out to be another lame contract brew from High Falls Brewing Co, and not even worth the low price. Cheap tasting corn malts and no hops at all that I could detect. Same as any other BMC macro lager. I have a lawn to mow and its still pretty hot here in Florida, so I’ll put it to use, but I won’t buy this swill again. The Peroni I had last night puts this to shame. This is poor by any standard.

I would venture to say that this is one of the best light lagers around. It is one of the only canned beers I can recall craving another after my first. typical light yellow color and grain smell. A surprising sweetness to this and not as over done with carbonation like a bud. Hope this gets offered in more bars in place of national beers soon.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Aromas of straw, pale malts, and a faint smell of grass. Flavors of grass and pale malts. Crisp. Not a bad lager.

This was was purchased and consumed in plastic cup at a small deli restaurant in Sheffield, MA. It poured light gold with not much head. Nose of light malts but it also smells like fermented corn. Very thin mouthfeel. Flavor is malts. Very bland and one dimensional beer that is barely drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A couple of ’Gansett pours on tap at Champlin’s - Galilee, RI. Aroma is a gentle, very cold, very plain light grain malt. Pours a dingy golden, with a light white head. Flavor is fairly clean and more full bodied, but yet steely, thin, and a little faint. This is a step up from any macro lager, and is actually probably well done by American Light Lager standards. I appreciate the lack of pukey corn aroma or flavor - the all malt character is nice.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at International Beer Garten (Lutz, FL). Look, aroma, and flavor reminds me alot of Pabst Blue Ribbon. It is what it is, a typical American pale lager. If you live in New York, spend a few bucks more and go for the Brooklyn lager instead.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Totally normal American lager from a regional brewer. This is the local ice cold refresher for much of New England, despite its being contract brewed in NY. There is nothing spectacular about it...but it isn’t horrible, so long as you understand what it is and why you are drinking it. This brew carries a lot of the "grandpa beer" mystique that many people are into right now. Just like people from Baltimore love their ’Boh, and the resurgence of other old labels such as PBR, Old Style, and Olympia, this old time favorite is born anew. It is comfortable, familiar(even if you aren’t from Cape Cod), and an easy summer guzzler.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Impressive, near white head. Recedes in a rocky fashion leaving clumpy lace on the glass. Clear, light straw color. Clear.
Weak aroma of corn and malt. Little to no hop. grainy smell.
Typical macro-lager flavor. Thin bodied with a high carbonation. Grainy flavor that dies quickly after the swallow. A session beer to be sure, perhaps better than most macros.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
On sale, and I hadn’t tried it. How could I go wrong? Well, indeed, I have erred with this one. Thin, watery...tastes exactly like Miller High Life actually. My 16 oz can declares that it was Sold on Merit. I don’t know what that means, but it won’t be sold to this beer drinker again. Quite horrible.
