3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Review from notes, sampled 12/09/2007
I picked up a six pack because someone I was trading with had it on their want list. I probably never would have picked it up otherwise. Kinda glad I did.
Pours a golden yellow color with a creamy white head that leaves quickly. The color reminds me of the apple juice my daughter drinks. The beer is sparklingly clear. The smell is malty, apricots, and a little skunky. Taste is light. Mouthfeel is thin crisp and refreshing. Not to bad for a macro. I could drink a few of these and still operate heavy machinery (that’s a joke). Honestly it was better than I had expected.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Orange straw in color. Not much aroma. Clean flavor with slight bitterness at the end. Somewhat buttery. Head dissipates fast, not much lace. A fairly boring lager.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not that bad. The first few sips taste like the first few times you’ve ever tried beer, as a kid, when your uncle gave you a taste from his Schlitz or Schaefer or something like that. You know, the first beer taste you’ve ever had, especially as it presents itself from a can. It does have that retro American lager/pilsner taste, but it quickly fades into something more mediocre and forgettable. Wispy and grassy and perhaps a little lemony, or even lemon grassy. Not even assertive enough to just be lemony. If I had to drink an ice cold beer, or two, after mowing the lawn, I might consider this brew.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
As a Rhode Islander I felt obligated to try this one, I was not disappointed. Has a slight sweet malty taste and mild aroma. It has more of an amber color than most pale lagers I’ve tried. The head quickly disappears. Though it doesn’t look very carbonated you feel it on you tongue. Highly drinkable. Has more taste than Miller High Life(my favorite pale lager, well used to be). I could get used to this one. For an inexpensive six pack on a Sunday afternoon this would do the trick.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Eggy, cheap lager, straw malt aroma. Fair can, very pale straw gold. Tangy, flat, lightly bittered. Nothing very interesting going on in that glass there. New Leaf Market.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Out of a sweet retro 16oz can. Sweet macro malts, maybe some corn, little to no hop character... actually, its not repulsive. I have a thing for old retro lagers, and this one isn’t too bad.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Poured clear pale color with a medium frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet grainy aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where not met with a below average beer.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Latrobe brewed 16 ounce can courtesy of MaltDawg. Thanks! As a ex-Rhode Islander I’m kinda excited to try this. Pours a very pale yellow color with a large fizzy head. Fairly poor head retention and lacing. Pale grainy aroma with a bit of a dusty note. The taste is sweet grainy notes with a grassy finish. Thin bodied.
