2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the House of Beer. Pours pale yellow with a medium white head. Has an interesting peanut aroma. Clean and crisp. No vegetable scents or flavors as seen so often is crap beer. High Falls got this one right. Very pleasant with no mistakes. Fizzy palate. It is what it is.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: Draft at Willimantic brewpub.
Damn, just when I thought I had a RI tick! Oh well. It pours a pale gold color with a foamy, white head. The nose is light with a whiff of grain and not much else. The taste has a little malt sweetness, a touch of grain, and very little hops. Light and soft on the palate though with a short, clean finish. A step up from BMC but it’s not very dynamic.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Another American/world adjunct lager, although this one has a little more of the good stuff. Poured with a large foamy frothy thick white head and some lace. Color is a clear gold. Aroma is grain malt cereal bit of hop. Flavor is like aroma and has a pronounced bittersweetness. Body is ok and so is carbonation. Finish is like body and of medium length. Could do worse, I guess.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle poured a clear gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of bread and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and smoth. Flavors of bread and spicy hops with a smooth dry finish. Actually better than I expected.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours bright yellow gold with a creamy white head, lots of lacing, persistent but becomes thin. Lot’s of bubbles Lightly sweet and bready pale pilsener malt, light twinge of noble hops.
Taste is basically the same. Sweetish aftertaste. Inoffensive but I wish it had a bit more crispness in the mouth.
This is a nostalgic brand. Being that I am not a native of New England I can say it’s no better or no worse than a lot of industrial lagers but doesn’t particularly appeal to me.

Sample at Julio’s Spring Beer Fest (disclaimer - memory somewhat blurred after perhaps a few too many samples) Even though I knew better I tried some anyway. Yup. Same as I remember it from 30 years ago. Why would they keep this brand alive?

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Can from Whole Foods Hadley. Terrible skunky and metallic nose. Taste is pretty foul. Industrial macro pilsener that you would not want to drink for any reason.
