3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cold 12oz bottle: Pours a clear yellow straw color with a big, creamy alabaster head that slowly dissolves. Aroma is of light grains, grass and citrus notes. Taste is lightly bready and well blended with light grassy hops and some citrus. Light to medium bodied and crisp, with good carbonation. Ending is of grassy hops into lightly sweet malty notes. This is a nice and crisp lager. Thanks D.M.!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle from a gift set from Sams Club, it was a gift. Pours a clear piss yellow with lots of carbonation and a fizzy white head. Initial aroma actually wasn’t that bad with some grainy cereal maltiness and slight floral hoppiness. Thin bodied like a BMC with average to slightyl strong carbonation. Flavor of grain, cereal that finishes with just a touch of hop bitteness. Not god by any means but this one is almost palatable.

Pale yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of sweet bready malt and faint floral hops. Light body with crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet beady malt and earthy biter hops with an unwelcome metallic note. Nicely drinkable.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle... Clear pale yellow lager with a small, fizzy, white head that is ... ZAP!... gone in a flash. Weak aroma when cool, but as it warms, it rears its ugly head. Smells like poultry drippings (no, not droppings) and spent, pale grains with a much lesser note of honey and a whisper of menthol. Medium-bodied with medium carbonation. Leans slightly on the bitter side of balance. Uninspired and boring. Finishes short and crisp with a moderately bitter hop pinch.

Pours a clear gold with a light fizzy white head. Aroma of grain with some skunkiness, maybe a little cardboard. Makes me appreciate decent beers.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear golden color with a thin head. Light aroma. Some malt and a hint of caramel. Not much to the flavor. Kind of sweet with a decent mix of malt and hops. Could use some work.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz bottle. Aroma is weak with some hop fruit notes. Clear medium gold hue with a small white head that mostly diminished and left no lace. Flavor is bland but some sweet notes of hops and malt with a slight bitter finish. Clean but kind of macro all around.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from a Historical Beers of America gift pack. Has some caramel and maple notes in the nose, almost like cedar scented hay, I would call it. Flavor is adjunct-ey, sweet, grainy, with a light maple sweetness. Honestly it’s not that bad, I think because it was kept out of the light. A bland lager, that’s for sure, but it’s not disgusting or anything.
