1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle thanks to Fratto. Pours with an ultra pale yellow body and no head. Aroma of corn and grass. Taste is watery with corn and surprisingly unoffensive. A bit of acetaldehyde in the finish. Dry, thin mouthfeel.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2009 Bottle from CM Beer & Wine. Pours disgustingly pale with a fizzy white head. A faint sweet smell. You know what? Itís not too bad. A little metallic, but for what it is itís pretty acceptable.

Hay and corn aroma. Clear yellow, thick white head, good lacing. Creamy mouthfeel. Relatively flavorless aside from a bit of corn. A fairly decent offering from south of the border.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle as shown. Pours a clear yellow gold with a small frothy white head that lasts awhile leaving decent spotty lacing along the glass. The aroma is corn malt and grain. Thin mouthfeel with a corn malt taste and a bit watery on the palate. Not much going on with this one.

Well then...by the looks of the bottle, this is going to be just wonderful...
Ah. Dumping out the contents of my 946ml bottle gave way to a clear pale yellow gold brew with some white head that survives as a skim but leaves a small ammount of spotty lacing. The smell isnít that bad with it mostly being grassy, a bit malty and maybe maybe some chemicals (not convinced). The taste is pretty plain and totally inoffensive - watery, grassy and a touch of hops...not a bad mix, really. Thin bodied, light mouthfeel, fairly carbonated and foamy and the only aftertaste is a bit of crummy hops. Could be worse.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
"Giant oddly shaped old fashion looking bottle the label is 1960ís two tone gold and orange, man this bottle is screaming quality beer. Massive fluffy white cap produce during my I donít care about this beer pour, the body looks extremely pale yellow maybe a mild gold, looks good enough for what it is. This is a first for me in a beers aroma this has a very prominent rotten egg smell; along with this there is grain, corn, lots of other cheap smelling filler and whole lot of stink but believe it or not it could probably smell worse. When this first hit my lips I swear I tasted grape Kool-Aid but this quickly turned into skunk. Lots of metallic flavoured hops and extremely sweet malt, corn, bread, and grass clippings, mild chemical all appear in this stellar brew. That rotten egg I was telling you about comes back in the finish. Brew is medium bodied and is nicely carbonated so it has that going for it. Luckily the flavour is relatively mild but Iím scared to what will happed if this gets warm. This is strangely drinkable but definitely not good Iíll be dumping most of this giant bottle out so I can save room for something enjoyable."

Pale yellow pour. Aroma is better than expected. Not skunky or sour at all. Slightly grainy but for the most part had a fresh scent. Taste was very smooth. No bitterness up front or on the finish. I must say I was prepared for the worst and was pleasantly surprised.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
32oz (1Qt.) bottle. clear pale yellow. Tall foamy white head. This is what I remember Bud looking like when I was a kid. Fruity aroma with a very nice skunk. Lots of skunk, which I have learned to love in a lager. Very nice malt with some grass. Flavor is very light malt. Not much corn, impressive. A nice sweet grain, some straw. Very well balanced. Nice hop flavors in the finish. Light bodied. This is one of the better Pale Lagers I have had. Very refreshing. I thing I have found my new lawn mowing beer.
