Can at Anthem. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of musty sweet grains with corn and a slight skunky note. Flavor has a good amount of sweet grain with a growing corn note.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
355ml can pours a pale golden color with a 2 finger white head that settles and leaves a few spots of lacing. Aroma is light grains and grassy hops. Taste is light malty sweetness with a moderate hop bitterness. There are no off tastes and this is quite easy to drink. Overall, this is just another typical macro lager and not recommended.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
First off, this stuff comes from some pretty righteous looking cans. These look like the beer cans your granpa crumpled and threw on the ground before he beat your daddy w/ a belt. I mean that as a good way because I think domestic violence is funny in some contexts. Sue me. It’s a really nice looking beer w/ a great head of fine bubbles and heaping tons of lace. If the flavor and aroma were as good as the can and or appearance, I’d be looking square in the eyes of a 5.0 lager beer but they are not. Olympia has sort of a thin aroma w/ a bit of grain husk and a herbal twinge of hops underneath. The flavor is reasonably balanced, light and slightly sweet but bitter enough to be sort of Pilsener-ish. This is a medium bodied brew which lightened by slightly fizzy carbonation. The end result is a nicely drinkable beer w/ a decent flavor profile. I am going to drink six of of them and go whoop that good-for-nothing son of mine.

Actually, this beer has a rather frothy head, that sticks around. It has a golden yellow body. It really must be the water. Straw/grass aroma. Goes down fairly easy, without being too thin. Grass flavor with a bit of a malt and/or honey bite. Not much else. Basic stuff here, that’s not too bad.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Drank from can at The Handle Bar, The Grove, St Louis, Missouri, USA. Cheap and drinkable when frigid. Fizzy and neutral. Overall, a pretty rough, watery light lager. I like the redesigned can, though.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz can. Pours a pale yellow golden with a small white froth. Aroma is sweet, grainy, a bit of honey and a touch of bread. Flavor is a little apple type of bite along with grainy and straw, kind of more bleck towards the finish as the sharp and bland grainy character kicks in. Light body and a sharp carbonation. Refreshing but pretty bleh

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Tin from neighbour. Shudder shudder shudder. Weak aroma, flavour and finish. It’s water, or rather it’s in the water. Looks rather like urine, fortunately tastes rather like a near beer. Pas Op.

12oz can. Rating #247. Golden color with an orange tint and a decent white head. Slightly sweet grainy aroma, pale malts. Bitter bite initially, not hops though, just a little rough upon first sip. Aftertaste was mild and overall was drinkable. (1881)
