I held off trying this for years. Had it out of a 22 oz. bottle. Cannot comment on the color and head and those factors are really insignificant to judging this style of beer. What I can say is that it has some body, is smooth, and has just enough hop to notice and make it pass for a lager rather than the over-sweet profile of most malt liquors. I thought it was a better brew than Budweiser, and it aided me in taking a refreshing nap.

12oz can (old notes)-Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma of corn and sweetness. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew is just plain rank.

Not bad for getting lit up, but as far as an after work relaxation brew, Iím all set. Better than any of the ice beers on the market, so its not without some merit.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
32 oz. bottle with a born on date of 4/18/13. Tasted blind alongside Coors Original and Busch Beer. This was the least fresh among the group, and it showed, yet still had more character than either of them. Especially hops. It pours a yellow color with a dissipating white head. The aroma is almost nonexistent with just a faint whiff of noble hops (possibly skunked). No sweetness or off aromas. The flavor is noticeably drier than either of the other two with much more noble hop character (even though it was a bit skunky). A little bit of malt and slightly fuller body than the others at 5.9%. Not too bad. Iíll look for a fresher bottle to put up against other Pale Lagers.

Bottle. HGT Brew club tasting night. Not a fun tasting at all. This beer barely beat out Hamms as the worse beer at the event. Skunky, tin smell and taste. Pretty well tasted like the can it came in.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can 25oz. A clear, pale golden beer with a nice creamy white head. Next to none aroma, some fruity notes and a vague malty touch. Some grass and pine cones too. Thereís a faint bitterness in the flavor, as well as green apples, some pale malts and a generic fruityness. Thin on the palate, very low on carbonation level. Mostly water this one. 130811
