2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light straw color with a soft peak egg white looking head. Sweetened grit aroma with just a hint of floral hops. A touch of butterscotch also thrown into the nose. Mild malt flavors with a touch of stewed raisins. Fairly thick in feel. Just not much to grab onto in this one.

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.

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.

Aroma is bread and malt spice. The flavor is mildly artificially sweet malts and malt spice into the finish

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
What’s the difference between a Vienna and a lager. Are they thicker, because this certainly is. Normal for a lager and genuinely uninspired.

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This actually surprised me a bit. The aroma was sweet malt with the faintest ghost of molasses. Medium gold. Dry malty, sunflower seeds, cereal, nutty sweetness. Good body, just a shade heavier than medium - oily consistancy, cereal in the back palate during the finish. If you’d told me that this was a decent Soviet-bloc lager from say, Czechoslovakia or Poland, I’d have believed it. The other half of PorterPounder’s toolbox allotment.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark yellow color with a large head. Dry fruit aroma with a glimpse of the impending grain blast. Well, the grains are there, but an array of fruit (apple, banana) is nicely added to the mix. Oddly sweet finish.

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

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Smell is malts, corn, grain, weak, some sweetness, and watery. The look is a golden clear and not very much of its white head. The taste is sweet corn, grains, water, and malts.
