Lemon yellow in color... Ahhh to heck with it... Maybe Iím just not feeling it but itís pretty average but at least itís drinkable and not offensive.

Presentation: This is one of six beers from an eighteen pack labeled Beer of America, Historical Collection. The 18 pack also came with a nice book titled, The History of Beer in America. It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a Pilsener glass. There appears to be no freshness date on the bottle. Appearance: It has a light foamy white head that fades quickly to a thin wispy covering and then down to nothing. There is not much in the way of lacing, just a few slick spots at the top of the glass. The body has a bright golden color with very good clarity and some visible carbonation. Smell: The aroma is light and has hints of grassy hops, light husky grain and cooked vegetables. Taste/Palate: Its flavor has a fairly dry grainy, corn and husky malt taste with some grassy hops. The finish is dry with mild bitterness and acidity as well as an odd salty mineral like thing. The body is light to medium with a light easy drinking texture and light fizzy carbonation. Notes: This is nothing more than your basic American pale light colored lager. It is drinkable but boring and I have noticed that all the beers in this mixed 18 pack are oddly similar to each other. The best part of this 18 pack is the book that came with it.

pours a clear golden color, with very light in color, it has a small head that disappears quickly. The aroma is corny, with some malty smells, the taste is very light, it is more corny and at the end it leaves a sweet taste. overall its alright.

Pale clear yellow, a dirty white foam. Aroma is sweet cereal, seems very corny despite the claims otherwise, grassy, dull and grainy. Taste is better, sweet cereal, grass, hay, simple and sweet.

12oz bottle acquired in trade with daknole (thanks!). Poured a medium yellow/golden color with a small sized white head. Aromas of graininess, and corny. Tastes of the same graininess, corny, and a little sweet. Hey, its a Pale Lager!

Just an average pale lager. I would drink it again if offered, but I will probably never buy it again.

Thanks to hopdog. Pours a translucent golden with a small bubbly white head. Aroma of sweet corn, light citrus and grass. Flavor of the same. Decent, a little sweet and not offensive.
