3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ RBSG 2014 Grand Tasting. Thanks to Josh for bringing these. Golden pour with a white head. A touch buttery on the nose, but otherwise good. Lots of bread and biscuit. Somewhat grainy and a bit of floral hops. Flavor has more of a creamed corn character to it, weirdly. Bread, some biscuit, and a bit of apple. Some mild hop flavor, too. Decent enough.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
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!

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
207ml "shorty" bottle. Cost .49 cents, thought that was a bit steep but the bottle got me.
It pours a golden yellow with a foamy white head.
Smell has some grape and corn.
The flavor is fruity with some mineral water and corn. Maybe better than the original but this one seems over priced, normally I would put the blurb that this is the same as bmc but cheaper but this is like an expensive bmc.

7 ounce bottle. Corn syrup and barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with minimal head. Sickly sweet corn syrup malt and weedy flavor. Bad.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
7oz bottle. Thanks to someone at RBSG14 for giving this to me. Shared with alexsdad06. Clear golden color. Thin white head. Some ropes of lace. Bready malt, some corn. Hint of vanilla. Not bad. Moderate sweet taste. Light bite to it. Light bitter. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Nothing special, OK, kind of interesting stuff to try. Basic lager, wouldn’t call it craft. Bit of a cheap edge to it, almost malt liquor -like. Even just 4oz wore on me (it got finished, though)

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
207ml bottle thanks to SS. Straight pour into a tulip yields a clear golden yellow body with a small white head that takes about a minute to fade. Aromas of corn, huge DMS (cooked turnips), pepper, body odor, a hint of a fruit ester (in a lager, I know), a bit doughy. Flavors of DMS (STRONG), grainy, cooked vegetables. Light minerallity. The rest of the malt bill is straw like with a light bready nature. A very light bitterness that fades quickly, neutral balance. Medium to lively bubbles, thinner body. Dry, light carbonic bite.
I am not particularly sensitive to DMS, but this was really loaded with it! Glad it came in a small bottle.
