2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Mixed spice, dry and yeasty. No particular flavor to write home about. A weird beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours with a one-finger bubbly white head that fades quickly leaving hardly any lace. Clear light amber color. Light-medium bodied. Nose is not skunky like the majors. Medium carbonation. Starts crisp and finishes hoppy, no a bad lager. $1.55 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits, Acton, Ma.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2008 In the bottle only 3 weeks. Pours light gold dead clear, light head. Smell is modest, I get mainly green tea. Taste is full, lots of malt, balanced bitterness, modest hopping. Supposedly OG 1048 with 26 IBUs. I get a trace of dimethylsulfide in the nose.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Batch #1505, bottled 3/18/2004. Well, I gotta say this is pretty sad stuff. I detect some nondescript fruitiness and just barely a caramel hint in the nose. It has a thin, white head and just a slightly darker urine color than, say, a Budweiser. In fact, it only tastes marginally better than Bud, too. It's fizzy like soda. There are some hops at the end but nothing to rave about whatsoever. I will try a few more OCs soon, but from what I recall of the ones I've had, this is the worst.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear yellow beer with white head. Nice biscuity aroma, which comes in the mouth too, with very balanced sgharp german hops. Good body fro a lager.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Draught) Lactic and hoppy nose. Pours a large white head and a golden body. Slight malt comes out in the flavour though it was on the thin and lifeless side of things.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Decent. Has a malty aroma and a pale golden coloring. Tastes like an average lager type. Refreshing and drinkable, but nothing all that remarkable.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Nice overall aroma and appearance. A bit weak in flavor reminded me of a lighter beer but without the aftertaste. A nice bite at the finish.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light foul, farty nose; gold-yellow color; low head. Medium bodied malt base and not very hoppy but an OK balance.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a browned yellow with a tall white head. Nose is odd. Not straight hops or malt dominated but some off aromas. The taste wasn't much better. Some weakened malt and hops along with a molded grain tongue. Finished with some of the same off flavors, albeit weakened during the aftertaste. OK at best.
