2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 ounce bottle in tulip. Golden with ring and a little lace. Sweet honey grassy detergent aroma. Very sweet honey with lager grassiness and cloying finish. Still, flavor is better than aroma. Medium body. Could be worse with rice or corn.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle, part of wooden gift pack. Pours a golden yellow. Smells like an unfinished 2 x 4. Smells like raw blonde wood. Sticky mouthfeel. Mostly sweet, soaked sprouted grain flavors. I feel like I’m drinking Home depot: blonde wood, wood glue, PVC, and a light varnish.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear light gold pour with no head. Banana nut aroma. Very thin bodied even for a lager. Not much for flavor. A slight hint of banana bread but very slight at that and then it fades into nothing.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle from a sampler at Publix. Poured a clear gold color with a thin white head. The aroma was malt and bread. The flavor was grainy. This was better than the average pale lager, but not great.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
You know, this one was probably the best of the Minhas brewing mix pack. Pours a clear yellow gold with a nose of malt, bread, and grain. No extravagant adjuncts detected. Respectable lager. Nice, but not my favorite beer or style.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a clear gold with a small white head. Grainy sweet malt with DMS. Light malt flavor. Grainy with a fruity finish. What the hell is going on over there in Monroe. They are obviously a marketing company with some packets of yeast.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle shared by Goldtwins. Pours a pale blond thin head. Aroma is corny dms, corn grits, cream of wheat and other wierd breakfast cereal types- and a slight pickle quality which was strange. Grassy and herbal hops throughout but very subtle, corn and a slight off astringent piss.
