2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour from a 7 oz bottle. Clear golen brew with white head that quickly fades. Aroma of light malts and some sort of hops. Taste is weak malt at the start with a lightly bitter finish, more of the hops that were in the aroma. The hops are kind of floral but a little green tasting - a little like grass without much bitterness. It’s not an off flavor but seems to crop up here and in some other Minhas Brews. Thin palate. Nice retro design on the six pack and bottle lablels. I guess it is a classic.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
These bottles are so small it’s ridiculous! Perfect for hiding in your luggage to bring on airplanes. Also, if you want to smash a dwarf over the head, this bottle is the perfect size for it. Trust me on this. This is actually almost a really good Pilsner-like American lager with a good amount of bitterness and honest-to-god malt character. Unfortunately it also has a weird buttery note that brings out the sweetness and makes it feel a bit heavy on the palate. I guess the small size bottle is something of an advantage because of this. You are not tempted to drink too much.

Tiny bottle someone strangely gave me. Clear golden, aroma is Uhhhh there is an aroma if you try real hard. Taste is quite sweet corn, but not like a shitty corn if that’s possible, like it’s supposed to be a corn beverage. Gets a pass

This beer is a little too sweet for my taste. Do not let it get warm! Overall not horrible and I like the shorty. A neat novelty from Rhinelander, WI. Give it a try.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle thanks to portableparty! Clear medium yellow pour, a little carbonation and an aroma of sweet corn. Flavor is also sugary sweet corn, but no real off flavors anywhere. Tolerable!

Nip bottle shared by jcwattsrugger. Poured a light straw gold body with a foamy white head. Super sweet aroma, smells like wort, wet grains, cream corn. Medium mouthfeel with light carbonation. Flavor is sweet, wort, dough, grains and sweet toast. Like the bottle, beer is okay.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Plus a clear light golden wi a slight white head. Corn like aroma with something like a light soft cheese note as well. Light mouthfeel. Cream sweet corn like taste. Meh, it’s not terrible but not form me really.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
7 oz. bottle thanks Josh and Sammy! Pours clear gold with a quick tight soapy head that leaves a wispy film. Aroma is sweet grain light grass and fruitiness ( is this Grain Belt?) Taste is more sweet grain grass and malt with a little bitterness and fruitiness like apple, again is this Grain Belt Premium in a cute little bottle? Palate is thin and dry. I like!
