Can: † Deep brownish amber, minor white head, very little lacing. † Pale malty nose, slightly sweet, a bit of brown sugar and mealiness. † Soft bready and biscuity notes on the tongue. † Falls of quickly. † Body and mouthfeel are moderate. † Finishes fairly simple, a bit bready, biscuity, with a mealy aftertaste. † Nothing special, but I suppose very easy to drink.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz can. Rating #3. Nice looking dark brown pour with a small tan head and some moderate lacing. Moderate malty sweetness upfront with the honey coming through. Sweet flavor, too much actually. Thin and too sweet, not enjoyable really. (1996)

Can from Windy City. Lightly sweet malty nose. A little roasty with some honey sweetness. Not much in the way of hops. Almost like a watered down porter. Nothing wrong with this, just slightly bland.

Had minimal scent and just a tiny bit of honey flavor. Would be a decent cheap fix for camping.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can. Poured into a glass a darker, clear root beer like brown with a slight collared light tan head. Better head retention than the Special Light. Not too much going on in the nose, slight sweet bread and a little metallic. Medium mouthfeel with a slight creaminess. Almost, almost tastes like a cream ale to me. Slight roast and vanilla. Not a fan of the ending. Itís not comletely terrible but at the same time it isnít good either.

Can poured into a plastic glass at Target Field. $7.50. I wonder what the alcohol content is as it seems to be a secret...

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Reddish-brown with foamy, quick-diminishing head. Sweet malt cheap lager aroma. Taste is sweet honey, very low hops, hard water and maybe a slight hint of almond. Very thin. Good carbonation but seems to get flat fast. Taste gets cloying and funky after it warms a bit. This is ok if you drink it ice cold and donít milk it. Highly drinkable but really just a cheap lager with some sweet honey added.
