2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce can (foamed over) in pint glass. Hazy yellow with huge white head. Mild vanilla lemon aroma. Mild sweet vanilla with lager grassiness and very mild german hop flavored finish. Very soft moutfeel. Light watery body and medium carbo. Quite light. Probably the lightest microbrewed American lager of the handful I’ve tried. Not quite enough flavor, either malt or hop bitterness. Other than the can packaging, I can’t imagine choosing this over a less expensive true German Pilsner.

[897-20071203] 12floz. Sweet yellow corn bread aroma with some hay hints. Clear, orange yellow body with a big medium-lasting foamy white head. Flavour has a bit of corn hay and fruity apple juice. Light-medium body. Sweet corny is uninteresting.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz can. Light straw colored body, dish soap looking off white head. Body is pretty cloudy. Head is 1 finger thick and somewhat lasting. Spotty, drip lacing. Nose of soap, grain, light citrus, wheat, grass and cardboard. Flavor brings some light hops into play, but not much at all. Watery body, medium astringency. Slick mouthfeel. Finishes with wet grains, some hops and grass. Medium length, fades to a watery ending. Below average.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is corn malt and very little hops. The appearance is gold with an average head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. This was a good attempt at a lager but it’s still not very good.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Feels a bit thin, the hops and malts seem inatiquate, This is doesn’t feel like a pilsener its more like a attempt that someone couldn’t quite figure out.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Pours a slightly hazy pale golden with a one finger white head that fades and leaves some lacing. Aroma of pilsner malt and light floral hops. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium thin mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness. Good.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light golden body. Large, fluffy white head with decent retention. Decent amount of sheet lacing. The first whiff is a real letdown. Corny, grainy malts with syrupy, sugary sweetness. Very little in the form of discernible hops on the nose. Light floral scents. The flavor isn’t much better. There’s a cheap tasting, syrupy corn malt base with mild floral hops and a faint spiciness. Very dry and grainy tasting. Watery body. Bitter finish. Looks, smells, and tastes pretty much like your standard, run-of-the-mill, macro pale lager.
