2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hmmm...Iím wondering where in Juneau, I canít find this beer. Anyways, here goes.
Iíve had this various times in pint glasses and pilseners and this is reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a decent looking yellow color with a strong transparency all about it. Carbonation was seen rising and filling less than a half fingerís worth of head that fizzled into the beer less than thirty seconds.
The smell was grainy and corny.
The taste was really only corny sweet and had a dried corn sweet aftertaste. There was a watery finish.
On the palate, it sat exceptionally light and was mostly sessionable for the most part. The carbonation is there and is decent for the style.
Overall, uh...American Adjunct Lager, did I like it, hmmm...its one of those poundable beers on a hot summerís day (which we donít get too much of those in Juneau, but anways). Uh...yeah, I donít really buy this stuff, but anyways, thatís what Iím sticking to and Iíll leave it at that.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle & can. I definitively say this is beer, as I witnessed the pour. Otherwise, it looks like the urine of a dehydrated person with a head that disappears as quickly. Corn and barley on the nose, and relatively little to be excited about for the taste. Yay Northwest! Boo crappy pale lagers!

The west coast cheap beer to grab. Iím new to the west cost so I canít really understand the culture yet. But Its BASICALLY bud/insert shifty beer. College pounding brew.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can, 71cl. It pours a big, white head over a clear, yellow body. Lacings. The aroma is weak, with some fruityness and pale malts. Pears and yellow apples mostly. Thereís a little bitterness in the flavor, else itís the same fruits and pale malts found in the nose. Medium bodied, and a pleasant carbonation level. Some bitterness in the end. A drinkable one, but thereís nothing interesting going on here, nothing at all. 131004
