3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I was too kind to this one. Too bad it’s retired, or I’d rerate it. Lager is peppery and lightly spiced with corianders. Nose is floral. Rated 11/15/2000

Old undated notes: A fizzy light beer that I like to drink when it’s hot out. There isn’t much to this one.

12oz bottle, ESP lager. Poured a medium yellow gold color with a medium head. Aroma is grainy and sweet.
Medium bodied, light tasting lager. Mild and smooth. Good malt and hop balance, with a very mild flavor. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is slightly malty.

Oh boy! A retired pale lager! Actually, it’s not too bad. Advertized as a lawnmower beer, it’s just that. Bready malts with a light herbal/floral hopping. Drinkable, but I won’t miss it in its retirement.

Bottle. I had this in a multi-pack back in 1999 or 2000 and loved it. I thought at the time that it was the best beer that I had ever tasted. It’s been a while, and I can’t be sure if I was right, but I remember a nice hop and maltiness with an amber color. Can’t recall the aroma, probably because I drank it too fast...

This is something thats not offensive, but I wouldn't go out of my way to purchase any. Amber in color, not a whole lot of head, (which seems to be a trend with ole Pete). Decent flavor, but a little thin in body.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep amber color with minimal head. Medium bodied lager with some maltiness to the aroma. A pretty light taste but overall not too bad of a beer.

My bottle is actually the Pete's Extra Smooth Pub Lager. It's the best thing from Pete's I've had so far.

Nice beer-beer. Better than having like a Miller Lite or a Bud. Good flavor. I liked it better when it was called ESP - Extra Special Pub Lager. Anyway, this is a good standard "beer" to have around if you have Bud or Bud Light drinking friends, but don't care to purchase Bud products. It's not offensive, but has a nice flavor.
