1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

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.

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)
