3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2008 Mainly smells like clean citrus and grain, slightly on the uneventful side as far as aroma goes. Amber color pour with a small white head. Pretty good hop flavor, and very smooth. Leaves a slight grass flavor in your mouth. Not bad.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled @ approx 8deg C. In Puerto Rico so may be pre treated somewhat differently (label states "Puerto Rico") i.e. perhaps pasteurized longer, or filtered sharper. Expiration date March 2010 therefore relatively fresh. I have sampled before here and can verify that it does not age well. Sometimes more hoppy than other times leading to lack of continuity. Present sample, aroma very good. Hoppy but not too much so, somewhat resinous, and with slight floral notes and caramel. Appearance excellent. Good foam stability and slight lacing. Complex taste, well balanced with caramel sweetness and slightly soft hoppy bitterness. I stress, refreshingly and gratifyingly hoppy. Not harsh at all. Mouthfeel on the soft side and full bodied. Sadly, too full bodied for my taste leading to a decrease in drinkability. Carbonation perfect. Malty backbone, masked perhaps too much by caramel but not too sweet. Hop contributions to taste were again resinous and pleasantly hoppy. Overall, a wonderful beer that I always enjoy drinking but only 2 or 3 bottles at the most.

Pours a beautiful golden amber color. Mild aroma of fruits and hops. The taste is complex and a medium body, yet refreshing. Hints of citrus, caramel, and nutty. A classic beer that can be enjoyed anywhere at an affordable price.

The ultimate go-to beer. Widely available and serves as an excellent gateway beer for those still stuck in macroland.

This is my favorite beer. I rated it perfectly not because I think it’s the perfect beer, but because it is the perfect beer for me. This it’s what I’m judging beers based on.

This is one of those go to beers when nothing on the beer menu looks good. A full bodied lager that pours out a great copper color. Not to pale. Not dark.

The original micro brew. Very solid beer. Great with a steak and can always have a few.

A great smooth beer if you can afford to get drunk on it I applaud you, but for the rest of us its Keystone ice...

This beer poured nicely with a thick head and beautiful color. It was just a little bitter for me.
