3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a hazy, dark yellow with a half finger of white head. Aroma is grainy but with some distinct banana and belgian yeast. Taste is light sweet. Again, mostly grains but a noticeable bit of yeasty goodness. Light bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not bad. Nothing to seek out but ill drink this one.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Iím not so sure this is retired. It comes in an ominous old school looking case pack.
12 oz brown twist-off bottle.
It pours a dull gold with a fizzy white head that quickly dissipates. Even for style standards this one looks pretty bad.
It actually has a grainy smell with real barley, though there is a certain must that reminds me of corn.
The taste is odd, it has a nice malt and hop presence for the style, but also the taste of cardboard and a bit of corn. It seems like they were going for an adjunct lager that was as high-quality as possible.
Not very good, but not bad considering the style.
Serving type: bottle

Nice lager. Better than Miller or Bud. Glad to see Minhas brought this back.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden color with a decent white head. Smell is fruity almost wine like. It has a slightly malty aroma. Flavor is balanced. Corn and rice are evident and help to lighten it.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Dark golden to light amber color. Off-white foamy egg-white looking head. Mild aromas of corn and caramel. Fairly fizzy feel. Nearly no beer flavors found in the initial quaff. Mild corn syrup flavors in the start. A mild herbal middle. Fairly dry generic bitterness in the finish and linger.

This fine beer was very cheap came in bottles. Cheap beer doesnt taste that cheap when it comes in bottles, unless its miller light which tastes like someone dipped their balls in it no matter what the container. This is a very good beer to drink while doing yardwork.

I would have to agree with manolager. This is a gread flavored beer, provided you get it fresh and drink it right away. Does not keep well at all.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2003 When fresh, this is an excellent beer for the price. Toss the old ones fast.
