3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
16-oz. can into a pint glass at my house on Nov. 4, 2012 (purchased at Vons in Mission Gorge (San Diego, Calif.) for $7.99 (with card) for a 4-pack on Nov. 4, 2012). Honey golden with 2-3 fingers of frothy white head. Good retention on the sides with foamy residue and pretty good on the top as well.
Smelled honey, corn, grains, cereal, skunk, grass and a hint of citrus hops.
Tasted pretty close to the nose, but more bitter. Got corn, grains, grass, honey, cereal and biscuit.
Medium-to-light body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Bitter abrupt finish.
Not a bad beer overall, especially for a lager, but I was hoping for something more.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz can. Pour color is darker than expected for a pale lager - a little on the orange side. Aroma indicates a nice sweetness. The flavor comes together nicely, with a really pleasant malt sweetness and just barely enough hops to clean up the finish. I was happily surprised by this one. Very sessionable, effortlessly drinkable. What American pale lager should be.

Decent lager. Most definitely better than your standard options for this style. Easy sipping, not much in the way of hops. Very crisp and clean.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from Archive Beer Boutique January 2014. Not my favourite beer from these guys but certainly drinkable with a mellow flavour and you have to work a bit to detect the aroma.

Pale Lager in a can. Another New Belgium classic. Crisp finish and definitely better than Miller for a football game

Dark straw pour with off-white head. Nose was mild hopcitrus, some fruity sweetness. Tasted of pale malt, grapefruit, resiny hops, and a crisp finish. A hopped up pale lager with much more flavor than most.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Golden clear. Somewhat grainy pale malts, hoppy greens, some earthyness on nose. Soft nice smooth body. Lager maltyness, light nice citrus green hoppy note. Ok. A lager as it should be. Light, flavourful malty, with real subtle hops.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Light yellow pour, slightly sweet corn aroma and taste with some noticeable hops tossed into the mix. Not a bad beer, but not one I’d regularly pick up with so many other better options available.

2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
a beer with hop and citrus taste. Somewhat fruity. Could almost be a breakfast beer for those grapefruit lovers.
