So very middlin’...I enjoy these only if the other selections are somewhat sparse. Not a bad beer...I still enjoy them...but there are so many other ways to go.

Definately full bodied, not a pale lager by any means. Nice white head that quickly fades but leaves nice lacing throughout the beer. Hoppy floral aroma and taste with some nice maltiness in the background, A bit too hoppy for a lawnmower beer but 99.8% of the time we’re not mowing, are we?

If you can’t appreciate this beer, your nose is too high in the air. Had this today while watching football. Had a bowl of Chili and it’s taste shifted to a fruit-like quality I’ve only experienced with Bells beers. Entry-level craft style beer.

Light color. About an inch of head, very thick. Smooth beer. nice flavor but it fades too fast.

Third from Boston Beer Company. Again, very impressed, an almost nutty taste, very enjoyable, citrus after taste. Not bad for $9.99 a 12.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle: Aroma is a bit orange tilted, appearance and flavor the same, what is up with that aftertaste? Heavily mettalic aftertaste that takes a long time to fade. After first sip aftertaste overpowers the palate and the rest of the bottle as well.

Pours a bright yellow - orange with big bubbles. A good looking beer. The aroma is sharp malt (with corn or rice?), and perhaps some unidentifiable hop presence. Kind of stinky macro brew smell. Very clean tasting. Malty with very lite citrus hops at the beginning. Lingering lite hops and malt, but they are rather non-descript. The body is fine - Mellow and acceptable. Other than the aroma this is not too bad for a mass produced brew.
