2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
clear wheat yellow with ultra thin, quickly gone white carby head. aroma is heavy on wheat, maybe with touch of lemon. flavor packs much more a hop punch and then quickly fades into a resounding lemon-lime citrus aftertaste that lingers. tastes really lingers on, smooth is finish, body light.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Zwonk! Biff! Blort! It’s kind of like 60’s Batman. It’s aroma is malty alchohol. It’s flavor is the same. It’s appearance and palate are carbonated. It is clean amber. It’s feel is a bit to astringent for me, but it’s actually otherwise ok.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks to Tronraner for this fine offering:). Clean golden pour with a hint of orange. A large corn aroma. A flavor much like chewing styrofoam and gum at the same time. Carbonation is way too much and palate is extra thin. Just barely drinkable, but I’ve had worse.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2009 500 ml. Sampled on New Years Eve 2007, but couldn’t figure out how to enter a new beer on the site! Golden with a medium-sized and lasting head. Typical honey and grass aroma. Flavor is a nice balance of the same, slightly tilted to the honey side on the front and a hint of a grassy-hop finish. I thought the alcohol was well-hidden. Body is light-medium and sort of smooth; nice winter warmer lager.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thanks to tronraner for bringing this one to stevo’s.
Well, I’ll have to be honest, this is not a great beer, but I found it to be no more offensive than an American swill Lager.
Thin fleeting head of white over a pale yellow body.
The aroma is largely acetaldehyde with some honey.
The flavor is sweet with no balance from the hops if they are even there at all.
Drinkable, but very one dimensional and a bit sweet.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Sampled at Stevofest 08. It is a TN tasting tradition to bring a horrible beer to start things off. Pours a typical pale golden with a white head. Weak aroma, but I pick up some cereal grains. This is just a melding of rubbing alcohol, adjucts, and nasty hops. No wonder there is a internet bride service from that part of the world, because those poor women have to drink this shit. Suttree did not fail in the tradition of bringing a drainpour. Thanks Phil. No wait.....kiss my ass Phil.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle at stevo’s. Pours hazy bright yellow with big white head. The aroma is tart corn and a little lemon. The flavor is chemical sweetness and lots of it, with a finish reminiscent of styrofoam. Not good.
