Bottle, 2007-09-18, 6-3-6-3-12=30
Light, hazy blond color. Light aroma, but with some hop, and light fruitness. The flavor as well is not bad: light mouthfeel, dry, with light crispy malt and the hopping is quite good.

Hazy blond color. Poor aroma. The flavor is ok, with some malt, but very simple. The bitterness is medium high. Ordinary Lager.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden colour with a soft sparkle. Well-balanced aroma with herbal hops and fresh bread. The soft body is accented towards the malts, which unfortunately don’t come off with the same fresh expressiveness that they do in the aroma. More like dull, day-old bread. There is some hoppy crispness in the finish to salvage things a bit.

S: The aroma starts off with sweet corn and pale malts. There is a hint of perfumey citrus peel and a light floral hop character as well. A bit of lager yeast and some light fruity esters.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smacks more of a standard 50s American lager than a crisp clean pilsener. Like the start, bubbly with some hop and a hint of citrus, but the finish goes into a flat malt. It may be all malt, but it makes me think of wheat. So I wasn’t old enough to drink in the 50’s, but I started, and the same beers were available in the 60’s. In the 60’s this would have left MIchelob in the dust.
