2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes. Can’t believe I’ve never reviewed this - of all the times when I lived on the East Coast and would pound this on the New England beaches. Well, anyways, ok, here goes.
The appearance is a bright yellow close to a golden amber with a thin less than a half fingered soapy head that fell fast.
The aroma has a lot of corn and coming through in a super sweetness
The taste is lightly sweet through the corn with a thin sweet corn aftertaste and watery finish.
The palate is watery and comes across more than sessionable, whoah, yeah this stuff is just super sessionable. Carbonation is fairly subdued as there’s nothing really inadequate on the mouth or tongue.
Overall, well, its an American Adjunct Lager, what can one say or do. I say Beach beer/BBQ beer if anything. I’d take this over any wine any day.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours with bright clarity , golden amber with a soapy head that fell fast. Nose is corn, grits, corn sweetness and some fresh cut hay. Lightly sweet and no apple on the nose at all. Taste is light, lightly sweet and has a bit of thin apple. Thin malt with a bit of light watery body . Touch of sulfur on the nose at first but that dissipates. Smooth but has a nice bite on the tongue from carbonation. Refreshing with no real hop bitter - maybe a hint of it and some lemon in the dry finish.

Can. Clear pale red color. Not much smell, maybe some hop and grass. Taste is slightly sweet, maybe caramel? Very thin and approachable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This pours a clear, golden yellow color with a thick, fizzy head. The aroma is slightly malty and grainy. The taste is fairly simple and light. This is fairly decent tasting for being a lighter beer. I would definitely take this over a Miller/Bud/Coors any day.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Some lacing with light retention. Smells of sweet malt, floral and grass. Tastes of sweet malt, slight hops and vegetables. Very smooth and clean. Very, very slight bitterness in the end. Sweet all the way through. Great for a macro lager.

Nearly clear yellow. No real body, but pretty refreshing. Creamy head, possibly from the journey. Pretty flavorful lager. Thanks Erin for helping me finally tick off Rhode Island.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2014 "Made on Honor, Sold On Merit"? WTF? Nothing like Blatz: "Made With Cheapness....Sold with alacrity!" So there you have it. I went to school in Rochester and not once tasted one of these little gems. For that, I feel shame. Or not. So keep the "Nasties" on hand for your neighbors & pushy clergymen. Keep the "good stuff" aka Blatz for yourself. Trust me, I’ve been to Milwaukee, so I ought to know. And if you cant trust me, really who can you trust?

Exactly what you are looking for in this type of beer. Finishes far cleaner than many of the other competitors.
