2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Serving: from can--purchased at QFC.
Aroma: grassy hops.
Appearance: small, frothy, white, initial head with no lacing and mostly diminishing longevity. Clear, light-yellow body.
Taste: lightly sweet initial flavor and lightly bitter finish with short duration.
Palate: light body, watery texture and lively carbonation.
Overall: a living Seattle legend (but now brewed in California). Still tastes okay on a hot day.

"Made Becks Sapphire seem like a mellow well crafted lager in comparison. Hot, prickly, flavors of corn and alcohol. Really really not good...really. I feel like such a whore."

absolutely terrible. pour is a piss golden yellow with a thin head that disappears quickly. aroma is grassy and a bit skunky. first flavors is of a cheap hay and grass but then the aftertaste sets in as a bitter coating on the tongue.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can from Brewforia. Pours light gold with a slight white head. Aroma is very lightly fruity hop. Maybe a hint of pale malt. Med minus body. Flavor is very mild fruity hop with some lightly bready malt. Truly it is not so horrible as most pale lagers.

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!
