3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a fairly good, basic pale lager and better than most macro lagers of the type.
It’s gold with a medium white head steadily dissipating to a thin ring.
The aroma is a pleasant, full-bodied US adjunct/pale lager character, mostly a full, strong grain with hints of apple and grass, rather like Pabst. It has nothing off or unpleasant aside from a very faint hint of perfumy soap.
The taste is light and very simple, but pleasant, firm, and consistent, again a bit like PBR. it has a lot of grain with faint grass and apple peel, with a grain aftertaste with faint grassy bitterness. Unlike PBR, the overall character thins out more and becomes a bit more bland and watery after the first few sips, with the grain taste becoming weaker. It’s drinkable and pleasant for what it is.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours a typical pale lager yellow with a large fluffy head. This, as one would expect, is repackaged MGD. Weak flavor, metallic aroma. Mouthfeel is dead and watery. Nothing good or special about this whatsoever, except maybe for the nice packaging scheme. Overall, poor.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
First beer in Vegas.
Waiter seemed overly thrilled about an amazing Hawaiian beer.
golden pour with white head.
Taste/aroma, light hops, thin notes of malt, crisp and some grainy mouthfeel.
Nothing amazing here.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle. Clear straw with a weak white head. Light mineral and grainy aroma. Very light sweet flavor with a hint of corn. Pretty much no hops, so it finishes a little sweet despite the lightness. Thin and very carbonated. Nothing nasty, but pretty flavorless.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from an unknown shop in National City. Good thing I didn’t buy this because I would have been even more unhappier. At first smell, I cringed and knew I was in store for a real crappy beer. Crisp clear and golden with a tiny fizzy head is a basic visual description. The flavor is beyond bland with plenty of macro adjuncts such as corn/rice substituted malts. Tasting very similar to a low or non alcoholic beverage but honestly does have a clean finish which makes this more drinkable then others.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle from bevmo mission valley. Pours a medium golden color with a fluffy white head. Nose and flavor had a little extra sugary sweetness from the can sugar, decent lager.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sample at Burger Bar in Las Vegas. The beer is a clear golden color with a thin and fizzy white head that diminishes quickly. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. Light hops and pale malt in the nose. Light, carbonated body with grainy malt and mild hops flavors. Touches of fruit at times as well. The finish is lightly bitter with a short hops aftertaste. By-the-numbers Lager overall.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2009 Bottle from Valley Farm. Medium golden in color. Sweet grain aroma. Some corn as well. Crisp and grainy. Decent lager. Kind of reminds me of Lucky from the 90’s.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft. Pours a clear, golden with a spritzy white head. The aroma is sweet with some vegetal notes — molasses and corn — and a hint of grassy hops. The flavor is lightly sweet and very lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Better than many other mass-market pale lagers and refreshing enough. But not a lot of flavor in this one.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2009 From a 12 oz bottle this poured a very clear gold with a big white head and good lacing. Nose of malts with some light floral hops. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is light malts with a light bitter finish. Refreshing to drink.
