2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours clear gold with some floaters and a one finger white head that leaves ok lacing. The nose is malt, grain and grass. The taste is malt, sweet grain and mild grassy hops. Lighter prickly body. Not great, but better than Cabro.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
32 oz bottle, thats right a whole quart bitches, purchased at Spirits RB. Pours a clear golden straw color with slight effervescence rising from the center and an average size foamy head that leaves some thick piles of lace on my glass and some large dollops of lasting head. Aroma is dusty overall with some sweet corny notes and cardboard. Flavor is no worse then any other macro lager, corn and metallic notes to form a base of sweetness with a very slight bitter finish. The palate on this one helps out alot and is actually not half bad with a medium body and light, but very much there carboantion, and a creamy finish. If you can get past the flavor this one is drinkable.

32oz bottle, pale yellow coloring, crystal clear, tall white foam, aroma of mild malts, clean pilsen flavor, very slight hint of bitters, flavor is bland but dry, not nearly as skunky as I had expected, comes in an awesome 32 oz non screw off bottle for your homebrew (only reason I bought it)

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
From a large 32 oz. bottle. The body was pale gold with a very thin white head. The aroma was grainy and corny with a little bit of bell pepper. The taste was light plastic with some strange white potato. Very little flavor.
