COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Yes we are bringing back Rhinelander Export! The beer that started the entire stubby beer bottle craze, but your “shorty” is now grown up. Made with the original recipe from yester-year, it is a refreshing and malty beer with a light and smooth finish. Look for it in your favorite retailer and on premise establishment.

Bottle thanks to Josh at the RBSG. Josh was pimpin’ these hard and I took one home to try. Everything you love in an american pale lager is here. Corn and bread in the nose, slightly sweet taste with a touch of bitterness and a hint of fruit. Not too bad.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2013 Had a ’shorty’ at a local bar in Rhinelander (Bucket Heads). Aroma was of grassy malts. The taste was similar - light, with grassy malts followed by a hint of sweetness and a very mild hop finish. It did not have the pungent corn/hop combo that many mass-produced pale lagers possess. Palate was OK and typical of most pale lagers. Overall, I liked this brew, since I am not a big hop fan. I hope they come out with a 12 oz. version can again in the near future.

Draft at the brewery. If you like simple, plain ol’ American lagers, this ain’t terrible. Smooth and exceptionally clean. Drinks with a little bit of a sweet, wheaty finish. (#5124, 7/3/2013)

7 oz bottle to snifter (thanks jmborggren). Looks fine; a transparent gold with thin white lacing. Smells of apples and light corn. Tastes like it smells, only worse, with an average (at best) mouthfeel. Meh.

hopscotch (10085) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 4, 2013
Bottle... Clear, pale-golden lager with a tiny, fizzy, white head. The aroma is a muddled assortment of doughy, red delicious apple, creamed corn and sugar cookie notes. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. The flavor is painfully sweet - honey, golden raisins and other esters and phenols that (thankfully) have no business being in a pilsner or pale lager. Next-to no bitterness here. Sweet, sweet, sweet finish. Bottle courtesy of GhostFace!

Found a case of these in my in-laws’ garage, so here goes. 7 oz bottle served in a generic glass from the cupboard. Pours a light gold/straw with a quickly dissipating head. Aroma is malt. Flavor is very sweet malt with no bitterness. Thin body with moderate carbonation. All in all not a bad pale lager.

This is probably about the 20th one of these little suckers I’ve drank now, I think it’s about time to give er’ a rating.

Pours a clear golden color with a nice little tight white head, that is surprisingly well retained.

The aroma isn’t great, doughy & corny for the most part. Not unappetizingly sweat but not particularly crisp smelling either. A mild herbal hoppy note redeems it, although the doughy/corny thing is far less offensive here than it is in a lot of beers.

The flavor is fine, particularly fine for a Minhas beer. Sweet and doughy, but the corniness is left to a minimum, some fruitiness is nice.... I swear I got green apple in some of the bottles, but it’s mild if noticeable at all here. I’m guessing there’s some acetaldehyde profile to the beer and that my palate is a little more sensitive than normal when it bothers me in the beer, tonight I’m not really picking it up. The beer is balanced to some degree with a mild bitterness.

Honestly this is a beer I enjoy. I wouldn’t have drank something like 20 of them if I didn’t like it. At the same time, when you put it under the microscope things surface and become more annoying than when I’m using it as a quick beer in the shower/something to have with dinner/the normal things I use this beer for.
I will be buying another case of it this weekend if the opportunity presents it’s self.
