2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slightly lemony, slightly funky, cheap lager aroma. OK label, twistoff cap on a standard US longneck. Clear gold beer, an almost-white, lumpy head. Lemon-tangy, lightly sweet, not very bitter. Nothing much going on here - not bad, a lawnmower beer. Medium to medium light body, fairly crisp lemon finish.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from bottle. Faint aroma of roasted malt and caramel. Bronze, white head that fades quickly. I taste malt, toffee, butter, hops. Nice flavors, but too thin. Dry, lager-ish feel. Thirst quenching. A good beer that could have been better.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from family reunion pack. Pours a light straw yellow color with a thin, bubbly white head. Some sweetness on the nose. Not much in flavor, some malty sweetness up front but the carbonation washes everything away and it finishes with a cheap, bitter taste. Watery texture and over carbonated. Drinkable and refreshing...but just barely.

Split a 12oz bottle, obtained from the Family Reunion variety pack. Clear gold/yellow color, very minimal head. Light, falling lacing. Light hops taste. Crisp carbonation, not overdone... Mildly bitter finish, but hardly any at all. Drinkable, somewhat refreshing. Not bad, but nothing special.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
One of the best after the Bock in the family six pack. I don’t understand why they never gave it its own six pack and if they did why i couldn’t find it anywhere in Houston area.
