2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Bought from the singles shelf at Trader Joeís. Pours a clear yellow with minimal head. Aroma is light skunk initially then mostly grassy hops with some light vegetable aromas. Flavor is actually a bit more pilsner in character though, lightly bitter with some grassiness and hay like qualities and a good hop presence. Ruined in part this flavor profile is by some assorted adjuncts that are difficult to place ( i guess thatís a yoda sentence). Finish is lightly bitter, dry, medium in duration, and not unpleasant. Not terrible, has a touch of weird sweetness at the start that fades to a decent finish.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
50 cL can. Slightly corny aroma. Hint of grass. Brassy gold color with a very impressive white head. Medium body with slightly harsh carbonation. Starts with pale malt sweetness accompanied by Noble hop. A bit watery towards the finish, which is a tad vegy with definite, though light, bitter. Itís ok.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 12 oz bottle. Pours a transparent yellow gold with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma was light and sweet. Flavor was like very watered down Heineken. This is a weak beer. Mouthfeel was thin and watery, with a bit of a lingering pasty after film. Finish is weak with a disturbing sweet aftertaste. Not recommended, I am very pissed off that I bought a whole sixer. Re-rate note(9-13-07): having finished the whole six pack I am lowering my score; This beer really stands out as pathetic, there is a consistent metallic saccharine aftertaste in every bottle that I detest. Only the village idiot will buy this twice.

a transparent gold with a quickly dissipating head. syrupy with a medium body and lively in the mouth. small citrus aroma has a mellow caramel malt with some roasted grain. light citrus honey actually not bad just not anything that special

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Looked interesting on the shelf. Pours a pale straw color with a fading white head. Aroma of caramel, corn and cat. Some cat finds its way into the taste as well - an interesting counterpoint to the barnyard funk. Fix the problems and this might be an interesting beer, but as it is? Drainpour.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Nice golden color w/ a shallow, loosly spatered beachball style froth. Froth dies quickly and leaves a small trace of brewers lace. Aroma of sharp skunk and hay. Light nectar w/ ample residual effers. Balanced and bittered nicely but nothing else. Plain and simply put, next ?

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Lovely. A very, very pale yellow with a head that vanishes in a flash. Itís got a green bottle skunkiness when first poured. That fades and leaves a light bread and corn aroma. Thin and mildly oily in the mouth. Itís got the flavor of a light BMC without the carbonation. Lovely.
