1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2012 12 oz can; Aroma - grainy, a bit bready, slight yeast, big brewery american beer, slight skunk; Appearance - clear, straw colored, big foamy head to dissipates quickly to nothing, no lacing; Taste - not much, again big brewery lager, sweetness overpowers any subtlety of other flavors, no distinguishable malt or hop, very grainy; Palate -thin, watery; Overall - Not offensive just not a whole lot going for it. That said as far as big brew lager is concerned it is passable when thirsty and served very cold - makes me slightly nostalgic for my college years spent in Milwaukee.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
2015 BJCP Category: 1B American Lager
AROMA: Sweet flaked maize and blonde grain. Light DMS. Generic macro lager scent is tolerable. 8/12
APPEARANCE: Clear golden color; effervescent. Large white foam mostly dissipates. 2/3
FLAVOR: Slightly sweet corn-forward palette akin to Corn Flakes or similar cereal. Light pale malt presence. No discernible hops. Slight metallic flavor at the finish; otherwise dry with a clean fermentation. No acetaldehyde. 15/20
MOUTHFEEL: Light+ body; consistently crisp. Refreshing and quaffable. Almost no aftertaste. 5/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: It’s on point for the style. Though not an amazing beer, it’s surprisingly not bad for an adjunct macro lager. 8/10
TOTAL SCORE: 37/50

I had it from the bottle. The taste is corn, cereal, and water. It was pretty crisp and refreshing. There wasn’t anything wrong with it. You could certainly do worse.

16oz can in a restaurant that only served Pabst (class, class, class). Despite being essentially flavorless, this does a halfway good job at being refreshing. There’s little taste here, but it also doesn’t have any real off-flavors. Better than many others in the macro lager category.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear gold with a white head. Aroma is grain and malt. Sweet malt taste with a slight bitter finish. Just a good old plain lager, makes it hard to just have one.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale yellow golden colour, white head. Malty aroma. Sweet malty flavour. Light bitterness in the finish, sweet malts. OK drink on a warm day - does what it has to do, but nothing more.

En flasköl. Hittade på systemet. En lätt drucken lager. Men ändå godkänd som törstsläckare efter att ha ätit några kryddiga korvar!

Apparently PBR is drunk ironically by mega hipsters in the US much like Reschs is here in Sydney. Anyway..pint can into shaker. Nose is rice and cleaning products. Amber beer with solid white head. High carbonation. Watery taste and mouthfeel. Crisp, short, sweet finish. Typical American industrial lager, sweeter than most.
