2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2004 This brew poured a medium sized head of fine to medium sized white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a softly carbonated transparent yellow orange colored body and a fair lace. It has a mild malt hop aroma and a strong malt hop flavor with a smooth slightly tingly mouth feel.

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.

What’s the difference between a Vienna and a lager. Are they thicker, because this certainly is. Normal for a lager and genuinely uninspired.

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.

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.

2.9 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.

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.

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.

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.

YES, the "Historical Beers of America" collection. My father got this wooden tool box thing of beer for xmas last year. "hey, you want half of this?" Are they that bad, Pop? Twist off caps...beer don’t no.2!
Golden in color. Lager malt aroma. nice white head. Creamer texture than most lagers.present malt flavor throughout. Much better than Bud! A Suprisingly good beer for this style. A really good lager.
