2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
from a 6-pack bought at Grocery Outlet,Salem for $4.29
Darker gold in colour, nice quater inch off white head..sort of creamy in consistency
Aroma is pleasant enough doughy, slighly toasted grains.
mainlly malty in flavour..soft biscuity..slighty buttery but still good. a slightest of slight touch of hop in the end.
Pretty pleasing on the palate.
Overall considering the horrible treatment this had probably been thru in Gorcery Outlet ( on unrefridgerated shelf under harsh lighting) its pretty OK for a lager.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Basic micro pale lager. Sweet, watery, with an almost malt liquor finish. Great label- but that is about it.

A present from my GF’s mom. Seeing it was brewed by Lion, i was a little excited because their beers aren’t complete swill. This was very similar to Lionshead lager that i have had back in PGH.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
THOUGHTS: I wasn’t expecting much and that was what I got — not much. Nothing awful, just sort of bland. A little better than a macro, but not quite as good as Yuengling or Sam Adams Boston Lager. No balance. Just kind of malty. A little like sugar water. A nice way to describe it might be light a light malt liquor.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, light to medium golden with a small, white head that mostly diminished. The aroma was light to moderate malt, light honey and vegetable. The initial flavor was sweet and acidic; while the finish was rather sweet, acidic and slightly sour with an average duration. There was malt, honey, a little grain, sour malt and a little corn. The light to medium body was watery then a little dry with tingly carbonation and a light to moderately astringent and slightly dry finish.

bottle into shaker (6/27/10) OK, I bought this one because I was interested simply in what a "New Jersey" beer would taste like. It wasn’t too bad, but not the greatest either. Poured a clear amber with a frothy white head the fell fast. Picked up noted of straw, flowers and grass in the nose, so nothing exciting. It was pretty thin with a touch too much carbonation at first, but that calmed when it sat. Overall this was reminiscent of a BudMillerCoors and did a good job washing down my sandwich but one was plenty.
